No-Bake Cheesecake Mousse

If you’re looking for an easy yet impressive Valentine’s Day dessert, look no further than this No-Bake Cheesecake Mousse. 

No-Bake Cheesecake Mousse

Really, this no-bake cheesecake mousse is perfect any time of year. It’s so versatile because there are so many ways to top it off.

Strawberries or raspberries are great for Valentine’s Day, but hot fudge or caramel sauce with nuts would be equally delicious.

Just think about your favorite flavors of cheesecake and the possibilities are endless. You could even add a graham cracker crumb crust mixture to the bottom of your serving dishes.

I used miniature dessert bowls for my mousse and got five servings, but that’s obviously going to vary depending on the size of your dishes.

The mousse is rich and creamy, so it really is the kind of dessert where you don’t need a big bowl full.

This mousse is also great for layered parfait style desserts, but it’s just as heavenly on it’s own, so don’t hesitate to serve it as is.

  9. Could you make this even a few days (4 days) before the event, and keep it in a ziplock bag? Then pipe it the day of the event?

  10. Quadrupled recipe and served in a gigantic martini glass serving dish with lots of toppings for a bridal party. Absolutely delicious and everyone loved it! Thanks for the recipe!!

  11. Do you think this would work as a filling for a two layer cake?

  12. Does it have to be with an electric mixer?

  13. Any way to make this without corn syrup. A family member has an allergy and this sounds so good, I’d love to make it.

    • I left out the corn syrup and replaced the powdered sugar with splenda. still delicious. takes a bit more whipping for firm peaks is all
