No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

I think I have mentioned before that I’m one of those folks that always has to have dessert after supper – always. It can be a cookie, some fruit, or even a little bit of chocolate. But I just need to end my meal with some sort of sweetness. So I like to have a few super easy dessert recipes up my sleeve to make during the week. Things that only take minutes to make but will hit that after-dinner sweet spot. I started making this particular dessert when Gene and I were first married. I wasn’t cooking or baking much back then. My Mom had sent me off with a few cookbooks. And in one of those cookbooks was a recipe for a no-bake cheesecake. Basic, easy and hard for me to mess up. Graham cracker crust, a block of cream cheese, some sugar and a tub of Cool Whip.

  6. chocolate syrup for serving (optional)

Instructions
  • Using a handheld electric mixer or your stand mixer, combine cream cheese with sugar.
