The other day I was looking in the fridge, to see how everything was doing, in other words had anything expired. Well I found a light cream cheese that was getting pretty darn close.

Naturally the first thing that came to mind was “Cheesecake”. My eldest daughter and I were always the cheesecake lovers in our house.

Until one day I made a Skor Toffee Bits Vanilla Chocolate Cheesecake that converted my youngest daughter. She and her friend devoured that cheesecake.

My husband was still on the fence when it came to cheesecakes, he likes the Classic Italian, Yogurt Cake, my Italian Lemon Cake and of course Tiramisu.

But when it was time to serve this Light Cream Cheese Berry Cheesecake, he loved it, ate two pieces and decided this dessert was not shareable.

It was so easy to put together. I decided to use the leftover Oreo crumbs for the base. Then I beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and a little vanilla, I then folded it into the whipped cream together with some chocolate chips.

I spooned it over the base and refrigerated it over night. Because it is light cream cheese it doesn’t become as solid as the regular. So 30 minutes before serving I placed it in the freezer.

And of course the addition of some blackberries and blueberries with a little drizzle of melted chocolate doesn’t hurt either. Fast easy and delicious, just the way desserts should be. Enjoy!
