No-Bake Cheesecake In A Jar Recipe + Printables

No Bake Cheesecake in a Jar

Valentine’s Day is just a few days away and while I’m not really big on throwing a party on Valentine’s Day, I am someone who likes to  make (or buy) little gifts for people who are special to me. And if I’m being completely honest, I am also someone who enjoys receiving treats whether it’s a pack of candies, a box of chocolates, a bouquet of flowers, or just about anything. Just saying. :)

For Valentine’s Day I thought of making cheesecakes in a jar simply because I had been craving for one (Oreo cheesecake in particular) and also because everybody here at home loves cheesecake!

Today, I’ll be sharing with you our no-bake cheesecake recipe along with the printable gift tags I designed for Valentine’s Day which you can download below.

No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake in a Jar

We usually prefer blueberry filling for the topping but because it is for Valentine’s Day, I used strawberries instead in some of the jars to match the red and pink colors going on during that day. The strawberries I bought were a little sour so maybe next time, I’ll just buy strawberry pie filling in a can.

No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake in a Jar

The cheesecake recipe we use at home is no-bake and uses gelatin and cream to firm up the cheesecake.  Since it is no-bake, we can’t expect the cheesecake to be as firm as a baked one. Nevertheless, it’s still as delicious, maybe even creamier, and definitely a lot easier to make!

No-Bake Cheesecake In A Jar
Recipe type: Dessert
  • *Crust:
  • 1¼ cups Graham cracker crumbs
  • ⅓ cup Melted butter
  • 3 tbsps Sugar
  • *Filling:
  • 1 8oz Cream cheese
  • ¼ cup Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Unflavored gelatin
  • 3 tbsps Fresh Milk
  • 1 cup All purpose cream, chilled
  • 1 cup Blueberries/Strawberries/Cherries in syrup or any toppings of your choice
  1. For the crust: Mix Graham cracker crumbs with sugar, and melted butter. Press crust mixture into the bottom of your jar or on a pie pan. Set aside
  2. For the filling: Beat cream cheese and sugar until well blended.
  3. Dissolve unflavored gelatin in milk over low heat and add it to the cream cheese and sugar mixture while still hot. Continue beating.
  4. In a separate bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks form and then fold it into the cream cheese mixture.
  5. Pour onto crust. I used ziplock as a piping bag to put in the cream cheese mixture inside the jars.
  6. Cover and refrigerate for about an hour.
  7. Top with your choice of pie filling and return to the ref to chill for a few more hours.
