No-bake cheesecakes are an easy and delicious snack my boys love. Bonus: they can be made with the whole family. As expected, my kids’ favorite step was smashing biscuits for the crust.

Donald & Daisy Cheesecakes
- Mini cake rings
- 15 tea biscuits or cookies, crushed
- 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 2 Tsp (1 packet) powdered gelatin
- 2 Tbsp cold water
- 2 (8-Oz.) blocks of cream cheese, softened
- 1 1/2 Cups plain Greek yogurt
- 3/4 Cup sugar
- 1 Tbsp vanilla bean paste
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- Pink, yellow, black, red, and blue food coloring

All cutting should be done by an adult.
Line a plate or tray with parchment paper and place mini cake rings on it. Combine crushed biscuit crumbs and melted butter together in a mixing bowl. Divide up the biscuit crumbs and press onto the base of each cake tins. Chill in the refrigerator for later use.
Place the gelatin in a heatproof bowl with the cold water. Let it sit for 5 mins. Using a food processor, blend cream cheese, yogurt, sugar, vanilla paste, and lemon juice until it is smooth.
Heat gelatin powder mixture in a double boiler until melted and add to cream cheese mixture. Blend well.
Pour the mixture into the cake tins. Refrigerate for half an hour.
Divide up the remaining mixture into 3 portions, color them yellow, pink, and black with food coloring.
Working with one cheesecake at a time (keep the remaining cheesecakes in the fridge), dip a toothpick into the colored mixture to draw Donald and Daisy’s features.
Melt white chocolate in a microwave or over a double boiler, divide into three portions, and color them red, blue, and pink. Fill into piping bags, and cut a small hole in a corner.
On a tray or plate lined with parchment paper, pipe out Donald’s hat and bow tie, and Daisy’s bow. Leave to harden. Place them onto the cheesecake.
Melt white chocolate in a microwave or over a double boiler, fill into piping bag, cut, and pipe out the ribbon on Donald’s hat. Then add to cheesecake.
