Chase those hazy, humid blues away with these bright and refreshing Mojito Cheesecake Bites. Created by the confectionery queen Heather Baird from the celebrated blog 'Sprinkle Bakes,' these tart and creamy treats boast all the flavor of the famous mint cocktail.
Not only are these sweets served at a summer-appropriate temperature, they can also be a no-bake dessert if you play your cards right. Baird stepped out of character and opted to buy a New York style cheesecake rather than make one from scratch, because who wants to turn the oven on in the middle of summer? She mashed up the cheese cake and mixed in a little lime zest and mint, and rolled the concoction into bite-sized balls. She then enrobed the tidbits in dark chocolate and garnished them with rock sugar and slivers of fresh mint.
Appropriate for weddings, showers, or any old BBQ, these Mojito Cheesecake Bites just made summer entertaining a whole lot easier.
