Hot Tips To Elevate Your No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Minis
Be sure to use a cream that is suitable for whipping as the cream is what gives this cheesecake its lusciously light yet firm texture.
Ensure you whip your cream into stiff peaks before folding into the cream cheese filling for a light, velvety cheesecake that holds its shape.
You can change up your biscuit base by experimenting with nuts, Anzac/oatmeal cookies, coconut, ginger snap cookies, Scotch Fingers or even chocolate biscuits!
Store-bought strawberry coulis or strawberry syrup can save you valuable time if you don't wish to make your own coulis from scratch.
The bottom of a shot glass makes it very easy to create a nice, level biscuit base.
A piping bag makes it clean, fast and easy to distribute the cheesecake filling and the additional whipped cream topping into your serving cups for a beautiful restaurant-quality result.
A small electric chopper will make blitzing your biscuits a breeze. No electric chopper? No problem! Simply place the biscuits into a durable, sealable plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin until fine.
