PB&J Swirls for No-Bake Cheesecake (Peanut Butter & Jelly Swirls)
Updated: Aug 24, 2020
This is a super easy quick (30-60 second) flavor and decoration for No-Bake Cheesecake that looks fancy! I think it would work for custards or mousses too -- anything that sets in the fridge or freezer -- but I'm not sure if it would work for cheesecakes that you bake -- the jelly may burn during the baking process.
Check out the post for a great No-Bake Cheesecake recipe from fruittips.com
What I used (for 3 mini cheesecakes):
- ~1 teaspoon of Peanut butter
- ~1 teaspoon of Jelly
- Bamboo Skewer / Toothpick
- Small spoon
I did this to the cheesecakes before I put them in the fridge to set.
(This is the bowl I made the graham cracker/butter mixture for the cheesecake crusts.) I put about 1 teaspoon of peanut butter and jelly into the bowl. Then I microwaved it for 20-30 seconds. You can see the jelly is melted. The peanut butter was softer.
I just used the toothpick / spoon to scoop a little bit of peanut butter and jelly onto the top of the cheesecake cup.
Then I used a bamboo skewer to swirl the top. It only takes 3 or 4 swirls! You don't want to overmix it or else you won't distinguish the peanut butter from the jelly.

Give it a try! We are good at this!
