No bake Cheesecake shots, mix, refrigerate and ready...

Cheesecake is one of my favorite deserts, I've tried quite a few and so far I've loved everyone of them. From the simple New York Style to exotic fruit delights or creamy dark and white chocolate swirl.

I had never been tempted to make a non-bake cheesecake until recently, while at the pool a friend suggested I give it a try.

So I did. Base on her ingredients and a few twists I made this recipe, after cooling it in the fridge I tried it and I was like: this is good yet "Far from being cheesecake", the interesting thing is that the day after I had more and now it did taste more like cheesecake. So I decided to make shots for a gathering and they were a hit.
