All the ingredients for our no-bake cheesecake with easter eggs listed below are easily available at local grocery stores.
Digestive Biscuits – Any local store digestives will be good for the crust. You can also use shortbread, graham cracker, or even granola instead of digestives.
Butter – Use unsalted melted butter for the crust.
Cream Cheese – I like to use full-fat cream cheese for making these eggless mini egg cheesecake jars, which gives us a creamy texture and flavour.
Vanilla Extract – Gourmet Vanilla extract from Nielsen Massey is my favourite ingredient for all desserts be it jar desserts, no-bake ones, waffles, pancakes, cakes, brownies, and milkshakes. Nielsen-Massey vanilla extracts and paste uses premium, hand-selected beans and a cold extraction process that preserves vanilla’s 300+ flavour compounds to ensure a true-to-bean, creamy flavour profile with velvety after-tones.
They are a great addition to any classic British baking or cocktail recipe,
Sugar – Icing Sugar / Powdered Sugar gives a smooth texture to the filling.
Cream – Cold double cream or heavy cream is one of the key ingredients in the recipe. It is available to buy in the refrigerator section at the grocer. You can also use Whipping cream, however, double cream has a higher fat content – about 49%, which helps in holding the peak well after whipping.
Mini Eggs – Any chocolate eggs from your Easter treats can be used. You can also buy from the supermarket, or from the seasonal section. So many popular brands sell mini eggs – pick the ones you love.
How to make Individual No-Bake Mini Egg Cheesecake Jars step by step
It’s really easy and straightforward to make Cheesecake Jars. And there are only 3 steps involved.
There are Only 3 Layers in this Mini Egg Cheesecake Jars
- Cheesecake Base
- No-Bake Cheesecake filling
- Toppings of your choice.
Buttery Cheesecake crust is made with Digestive biscuits and unsalted butter. Combine the two together and layer them on the base of the jars. You can crush the digestive biscuits with a rolling pin or use a food processor to crush them.
Sub shortbread, graham cracker, or even granola for digestives, if you like.
This is the most delicious and indulgent layer of the Cheesecake Jars.
Whip the Double cream ( heavy cream) into a soft peak. Next, combine cream cheese, Gourmet Vanilla Extract from Nielsen Massey, mini egg, and icing sugar till smooth. Fold the cream into the cream cheese mixture, gently so that the cream is airy and doesn’t deflate.
Carefully pipe this no-bake cheesecake filling on top of the crust layer, filling up nearly up to three-quarters of the jar.
Finally, pile mini eggs on the top.
Chill in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
If you like, drizzle chocolate syrup or garnish chocolate carrots on the mini egg cheesecake with easter eggs. (Optional)
Serve individual mini egg cheesecake in jars, with your favourite toppings, or even whipping cream.
I like to pile mini eggs on the top and sometimes chocolate carrots – Just perfect for the Easter theme dessert.
How to crush mini eggs?
Place the mini eggs in a ziplock bag. Using a can or rolling pin, bash the eggs until they are crushed. You have mini eggs ready for your cheesecake.
How much should I whip the cream?
Whip the cold double cream into a soft peak that still holds shape. Do not whip too stiff as the pudding will be too dense.
You do not want the cream to be runny, as the easter pudding will be too soft/soggy.
