Cheesecake is probably my favorite dessert - and I love making it in any style, and I especially love cheesecake that I can shove into my mouth all in one bite. Plus this cheesecake is beyond easy to make because there's no baking involved.

That's right! No bake cheesecake make the perfect base for practically any combination of toppings. This week's challenge was 'vanilla' so I topped my cheesecake with vanilla marshmallow topping then used a brulee torch to add some golden, toasted brown goodness.

  1. Add cupcake liners to a tin and spray with cooking oil. Melt the butter and stir it into the graham cracker crumbs until a crumbly crust forms. Press about 1-2 tablespoons of the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of each divot of the muffin tin.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, heavy cream, vanilla extract and salt until fluffy. Add in the powdered sugar then add as needed in tablespoon increments until the mixture has thickened and holds it's shape when the whisk is removed.
  3. Spoon the cheesecake mixture into the cupcake tins, leaving about a 1/4 inch on the top of adding toppings. Chill for at least one hour to set.
  4. Use a knife to loosen the edges of the cheesecake from the tin. Carefully remove the cheesecakes from the tin (OPTIONAL: remove the papers for exposed sides of the cheesecake). Add a tablespoon of marshmallow creme to the center of each cheesecake. Use the brulee torch to brown the marshmallow creme to the desired level of doneness (golden brown to burnt!). Serve right away and enjoy!
