No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Dessert with Chocolate Chip Cookie Crust

Hot summer days are here again!
I don't know about you, but I don't even want to think about turning on my oven and heating up the kitchen. Instead, I like making no bake desserts that are quick to make and require minimum time in the kitchen. 

I believe this is the perfect recipe for beginning cooks. 5 ingredients is all it takes to make an easy and elegant chocolate cheesecake dessert. Your friends will think you worked for hours!



No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Dessert with Chocolate Chip Cookie Crust
Ingredients
2 - 3.4 oz pkg of instant cheesecake pudding mix
2 - 3.4 oz pkg of instant chocolate pudding mix
6 cups of milk
12 chocolate chip cookies, crushed to fine crumbs
4 Tbsp. of melted butter

Directions
  • Blend, process, or crush 12 chocolate chip cookies into fine crumbs.
  • Add 4 Tbsp. of melted butter to the cookie crumbs.
  • Stir until mixed well. Measure out 2 Tbsp. of the cookie crumbs and set aside.
  • Press the remaining cookie crumb mixture into the bottom of a 9" spring-form pan
  • Pour 3 cups of cold milk into a bowl. Add the packages of chocolate pudding and beat for 1 minute. 
  • Pour the pudding into the cookie crust and spread evenly.
  • Set pudding into the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  • Pour 3 cups of cold milk into a bowl. Add the packages of cheesecake pudding and beat for 1 minute. 
  • Pour the cheesecake pudding on top of the chocolate pudding layer. 
  • Garnish with the reserved 2 Tbsp. of  crumbled chocolate chip cookie
  • Chill until firm, about 2-3 hours
  • Gently loosen the spring-form pan sides and lift away from the dessert.
  • Slice and serve. If desired, top each slice with 1-2 Tbsp. of whipped cream, or whipped topping. 
Enjoy a slice of homemade happiness on a plate!
