Chocolate Cheesecake In A Jar

We love Cheesecake more than any other dessert.  I am always trying to figure out a new and easier way to make cheesecake.  I love these No Bake Cheesecake recipes, because they are just that…easy!.  However, to add a little twist, this time, I made it with chocolate fudge pudding mix.  YUMMMM!

I would end up baking a cheesecake every week (or twice a week) if I made one every time my girls asked for cheesecake.  So, I started doing No Bake Cheesecakes in a jar.  Making them in a 9″ pie pan with these basic ingredients.  However, cheesecake tends to pick up fridge odors.  Here is the best way for making them in individual portions and storing them for up to a week.

The key to me getting them done in record time, is for me to start off with already crushed graham crackers.  I bought them for basically the same price as a box of graham crackers but I didn’t even have to crush them myself.

This makes 8 (4oz) jar cheesecakes.  So, the portion size is perfect for a little treat.  Top it with M&Ms, whipped cream or even with chocolate syrup to finish it off.
