The superstar key ingredient in this no-bake cheesecake is…. marshmallow cream! In a million years, I would have never guessed it would make such a big difference in my no-bake cheesecake game, but it SO does.
In the past, I’ve found myself avoiding no-bake cheesecakes, because they never seem to turn out quite right in the texture department. They’re always too soft, even a little runny. I couldn’t cut great, big, clean slices. I’d always end up spooning the stuff out of the pan.
Somehow the marshmallow cream makes the biggest difference. This cut and felt very similar to an actual baked cheesecake, which I really, really loved.
In place of a graham cracker crust that you may traditionally find under a cheesecake, I substituted a pretzel crust (like you would eat in a Strawberry Pretzel Jello Salad). It’s filled with creamy, decadent peanut butter cheesecake, and topped with dulce de leche. This one is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser!
