One of my favorite blogging events has rolled around again, yes FREAKY FRIDAY! This is always such a great time with some of our blogger buddies.

This is a blogging event where you are assigned a fellow blogger secretly. You choose a recipe from their website and make it for your site. Everyone gets revealed at the same time, you surprise another blogger with your creation and someone else surprises you with what they chose to make from your site! FUN FUN FUN! I love participating in this event and am pleased to present the recipe that I chose from my assigned blogger. I present to you:

No Bake Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake Parfait

This tasty creation is from A DISH OF DAILY LIFE run by Michelle a talented foodie friend I’ve gotten to know over the years. First off I can tell you a bit about Michelle without even reading her bio. She’s one busy lady with an active family, she runs multiple businesses and is a HUGE pet lover. And she can cook! You can see Michelle’s version of this dessert by clicking HERE.

When I started browsing through her repertoire of recipes I instantly knew I had to make this no bake treat for a couple of reasons.

  1. July…enough said. I hate heating up my kitchen!
  2.  I love chocolate, cherries & cheesecake so DUH and
  3. I’ve been drooling over her pics of this dessert for years on social media, so there!

Although I was also certainly tempted by her: Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup and Homemade Refried Beans…dessert though ultimately stole my attention.

We love no bake desserts at our house, so I knew that No Bake Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake Parfaits would be a winner. And it was!!! You have 3 basic layers all delicious on their own but combined…AMAZING!!!! There’s the OREO cookie layer (what’s not to love there?) next the chocolate chip cream cheese layer (again…what’s not to love?) and finally the cherry pie filling layer!  I’ll just say these disappeared FAST, FAST, FAST!

Michelle made these in darling pint mason jars. I opted for fluted glasses, use whatever you desire or have on hand the lovely layers will pop no matter what you use. Enjoy!
