A delicious dessert doesn’t have to be complicated to make either (we can’t all be Gordon Ramsey after all!)

So what’s super easy to make and totally tasty too? A cheesecake of course!

Bursting with J-O’s, this cheesecake is so simple to make, it requires no baking, few ingredients and can be whipped up in a matter of minutes.

Just a word of advice though: make sure to keep a stash of J-O’s hidden, you will be surprised by how many hungry hands will try rob them.

15 J-O’s
4 table spoons of melted butter

453 grams or 16 ounces of softened cream chees
453 grams or 16 ounces of full fat cream
1 cup of sugar
12 J-O’s, chopped
1 table spoon of vanilla extract

You’ll need
23 x 5 cm baking tray
Mixing bowl

Here’s how
Crush the J-O’s in a blender until they form fine crumbs. Add the melted butter and sugar and mix well
Transfer mixture into the bottom of a baking tray and firmly flatten into one even layer
Put the crust in the fridge to chill while you make the filling
Beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until it is well mixed and smooth. Set aside
Whip the cream and then gently fold into the cream cheese mixture until combined
Once done, gently fold the chopped J-O’s into the mixture
Remove the crust from the fridge and gently pour the filling into the pan before spreading it around to create an even layer
Lovingly scatter crushed J-O’s on top – because you can never have too much crunchy, creamy goodness!
Allow to chill for at least 4 hours or overnight
Remove the cheesecake from the pan and cut it into slices to serve

There you have it – no fuss, no baking, but totally tasty.
