3. White Chocolate Cheese Mousse with Tropical Fruit Medley by Chaya Surie Goldberger

When it comes to Shavuos, I love to prepare many different cheese delicacies for our milchig kiddush. But there’s one catch — it must be easy, yet still have that wow factor! I have included here a basic recipe for white chocolate cheese mousse that can be used two different ways, giving you two showstopper delights to adorn your Shavuos table. You can use just 3/4 of the white chocolate cheese mousse for these dessert cups and the remaining mousse as the basis for my turtle cheesecake recipe.

Cheesecake is a loved dessert by so many, and it’s one of my favorites. These mini no-bake cheesecakes require just a few ingredients and utensils that you (most likely) already have in your kitchen.

6. Israeli Triangle Cheesecake by Ruthy Bodner

This is our favorite cheesecake, recipe given to me by our Israeli cousin Miriam who is in her nineties and lives in Nachalim, Israel. When my husband would visit when he was in yeshiva he said he loved it and she always had it in her fridge in case he came by. It’s a huge hit in our home with family and friends and we still make it in the triangle shape.

7. No-Bake Cheesecake Cones by Miriam (Pascal) Cohen

I’ve been dreaming of this recipe idea for years. What if I could make an ice cream cone that didn’t melt?

Top them with a hot fudge sauce and some sprinkles, and you’ll have the cutest dessert on your hands!

8. Rocky Road No-Bake Cheesecake from the Dining In Cookbook

Get the little ones involved by having them line the trifle dish with the store-bought cookies. For an extra decorative touch, use while chocolate shavings, made by using a peeler, to top off this amazing dessert.

12. Raspberry Mousse with Coconut Flour Crust by Arman Liew

Piecrusts and dessert crusts are usually based on flour, butter, and a boat-load of sugar. However, shouldn’t they just be a vehicle for the pudding on top? This version is delicious enough to eat on its own. We don’t do things in halves here though: a creamy raspberry mousse on top makes this the perfect portioned dessert (or even breakfast)! If you are making it for more than one, it can also easily be adjusted.

15. No-Bake Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle by Jocelyn Brubaker

If you enjoy desserts with different textures and flavors, a dessert trifle is just what you need in your life. This trifle has layers of crunchy cookies, creamy cheesecake, and fresh berries. It is a flavor explosion in your mouth with every bite. You could also get creative and use vanilla cookies for a Neapolitan trifle.
