How to Make Cheesecake Parfaits
Making these raspberry cheesecake parfaits is also so much fun and so easy! You can use glass or plastic containers for this recipe, or even layer it into one layer casserole dish. The base is what really makes this dessert extra special – it’s made with graham cracker crumbs, crushed pretzels and butter. The saltiness from the pretzels combined with the sweet cheesecake mousse is incredible! The raspberry mousse is simply heavenly! It’s super light and fluffy, made with whipped cream, cream cheese and loads of fresh raspberries. Try it with other berries such as blueberries, blackberries, strawberries or even mango!
For the topping, I added even more fresh raspberries – those berries look so pretty under the jello layer. For the best results, make sure to wait until the mousse is nicely set before adding the jello layer. That way, the two layers won’t mix together. This easy dessert can be made ahead of time, even 2 to 3 days in advance. Just keep it refrigerated until you’re ready to serve!
