Fill a glass with this beautiful NO BAKE Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Parfait! Layer after layer, it’s a delicious dessert recipe any time of year!
Why this Recipe is Best
Easy desserts are my jam. I mean sure, I love baking a decadent, over the top cake from time to time. But most nights? We go the easy route.
And sometimes, I remember to plan ahead and whip up a no bake cheesecake parfait!
This is the perfect recipe to hang on to for summer. If you’re like me, you probably avoid turning on the oven as much as possible.
- The first layer is crushed chocolate chip cookies. I used Chips Ahoy, but feel free to use whatever you want for this. I kept my “crust” a little chunky, not a fine powder. Add in some melted butter and blend with a fork.
- Layer two is all about the cheesecake. Start with your softened cream cheese and beat in some brown sugar. Scrape down the sides of the bowl a few times, and let this whip up smooth for about 3-4 minutes. You want it creamy! You’ll add your vanilla, Cool Whip, and mini chocolate chips and then put this over the crust layer.
- Finally, your garnish. I used Cool Whip, more chocolate chips and a cookie.
Use a pretty glass or small mason jar to make it look impressive! Even wine glasses would be very pretty! I made mine into 4 large parfaits, but to spread the love around, you could make them smaller into 6 parfaits (perfect if using wine glasses or juice jars).
Refrigerate for at least an hour to chill the cheesecake. I usually make this in the morning and we enjoy it after dinner! So good!
