Today, around the world Orthodox Christians, whether they follow the “old” or the “new” calendar, celebrate Cheesefare Sunday. It is often referred to as “Cheesecake Sunday”. Today is also known as Forgiveness Sunday.
We joke that it is Cheesecake Sunday. Our first Forgiveness Sunday potluck was nearly all cheesecake! So for
cheesecake cheesefare Sunday BooBear did the work and I did the translating but together we took our favorite super easy 8 Minute Cheesecake Recipe and turned it into a chocolate feast!
Also we did not use cool whip. Instead I taught BooBear how to whip heavy cream using our Bosch mixer and we used real whipped cream.
The Super Easy 8 Minute Cheesecake is not a true cheesecake and it is not baked. It’s one of those no-bake and is very similar to the Jell-O Box No Bake Cheesecake only a million times better!
We hadn’t tried chocolate before though it’s been on our list of “we should try that” for ages. We used unsweetened coco powder which we added when blending the sour cream, cream cheese and sugar.
When using real whipped cream I do not get two whole cheesecakes like I would if I used cool whip and followed the recipe I posted but by doubling the recipe, adding in chocolate and using real whipped cream we were able to get enough filling for 3 store-bought chocolate “graham cracker” crusts. Two were sent to church for the
cheesecake cheesefare Sunday potluck. One will be consumed tonight as dessert.
