Tips & Tricks

  • Let the Cool Whip sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before folding it into the cream cheese mixture.
  • Melt the Peeps in the microwave immediately before folding them into the cream cheese mixture. It works better if they are slightly warm.
  • If the Peeps marshmallow mixture gets too stiff, microwave it for 20 seconds to soften again.
  • If your cheesecake crust crumbs are not sticking together, put the paper liners with the crumb mixtures on a plate. Microwave for 20-30 seconds and press again.
  • Prevent sticking by using paper cupcake liners in the muffin tin. This also makes it easier to get the no-bake cheesecakes out for serving.
Embrace the sweetness of the season with a gluten-free Easter Peeps cheesecake – a no-bake sensation that promises a perfect blend of festive joy and culinary bliss.

Freezing the no-bake mini cheesecakes will make them firm up. Storing them in the freezer will keep them fresh and prevent spoilage.
