Comments & Reviews

  1. Brown sugar did not dissolve be for the mixture started bubbling. Odd color from the brown sugar and much too sweet. A miss in my household

  2. So glad I found this recipe! My brother reeeeally loves no-bake cherry cheesecake, and this is exactly that – but even easier! I am definitely making this for our Christmas Eve snack night 🙂 Thank you! 

  3. This reminds me of that classic cherry cheesecake that EVERYBODY loves. It looks fantastic, Aimee. Making it into a dip is just being super smart!
