“What’s great about this recipe is that it is not only perfect for the Christmas season, but also nice all year-round,” notes Christine Schmidt of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. “I freeze fresh cherries in season to have on hand.“
"This is one of my favorite company desserts--it looks magnificent!" writes Karen Grant from Tulare, California. "Another easy way to decorate it is to cover the cheesecake with whipped cream, then add chocolate shavings and maraschino cherries to the top."
This no-bake cheesecake with distinctive layers of chocolate, peanut butter mousse and a silky ganache on top will take some time to assemble, but it's worth the effort to create a homemade dessert with grand-champion appeal - and definitely worth the wait. —JaNon Furrer, Prescott, Arizona
This cheesecake mousse actually tastes better after chilling overnight. Once chilled, it can be covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated for up to three days. Berries are optional, but they're a flavorful and festive way to dress up this dessert. —Caroline Wamelink, Cleveland Heights, Ohio
Fresh from the vine comes my merry after-dinner delight! The scrumptious pumpkin filling makes this cheesecake different from most, and the glaze adds a nice touch. It's a big hit among my family and friends.
