No Bake Red Velvet Cheesecake

I cannot bake. I’m okay admitting it, too. So when Anita said the other day that she was jonesin’ for a red velvet cupcake, I came up with the next-best-thing: no bake red velvet cheesecake. I opted to make the cheesecake in miniature pre-baked (like I said, I don’t bake, and that includes baking pie crusts!). I like the little crusts because they have built-in portion control. You put a big ole cheesecake in front of me and I might have trouble keeping myself under control. Put a mini cheesecake in front of me and I can manage.

No Bake Red Velvet Cheesecake

You can’t get much easier than this cheesecake. Great vanilla and cocoa flavor with a perfect creamy texture. Very, very addicting little bites, that’s for sure.

Also try my black forest cheesecake.
