For the cheesecake dip, do you make the no bake cheesecake according to package, or just add the powder mix to the cool whip? And how much cool whip?

Sharon Sloan said...

One package of mix with one regular container of cool whip. cover with fruit. serve with graham crackers. :)

On the cheesecake dip, how long do you mix for. Definitely good consistency but a bit gritty. Maybe I didn't do long enough?

The cheesecake dip, do you add step 1 & step 2 from the jello no bake cheesecake box?

tara said...

the cheesecake dip seemed way too goopy to me with just the mix and cool whip, so I added the milk called for in the cheesecake mix. It makes it really runny, but I put it in the fridge for about 30 minutes, and then took it out and whipped it with mixer for 3-4 minutes and it turned out great!
