Cupid’s Cherry Cheesecake

In classical mythology Cupid is the son of the love goddess Venus and it is said that a shot from Cupid’s bow and arrow will fill the person with uncontrollable desire. This Valentine’s Day if Cupid isn’t available to shoot the target of your affection, these cheesecake cups are the next best thing! The cherries have a beautiful red color which make them a perfect fruit for Valentine’s desserts, and the cheesecake and whipped cream are sinfully good. These little guys are also easy to make!

Serves: 6

Ingredients
  • 24 pitted cherries (frozen work fine)
  • ½ package of cherry jello
  • 1 cup of Philadelphia cream cheese (at room temperature)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or Stevia
  • 2½ tablespoons cherry yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon Kirkland Signature Pure Vanilla
  • Whipped cream for decoration

Instructions
  1. Divide the cherries amongst your six glass jars/containers.
  2. In a bowl dissolve the ½ package of cherry jello in ½ cup boiling water. Stir until all crystals dissolve.
  3. Set aside 1 tablespoon of the dissolved jello mix.
  4. To the remaining jello mix, add ⅓ cup of cold water. Stir well.
  5. Divide the jello mixture evenly into the six jars.
  6. Place the jars in the fridge for approximately 20 minutes or until the jello is completely set.
  7. In a bowl combine the cream cheese, vanilla, cherry yogurt, sugar and the 1 tablespoon of reserved jello mix. Use an electric mix on medium speed and combine all ingredients until creamy.
  8. Divide the cream cheese mixture into the six jars. You can spoon it in but I put the cream cheese mixture into a Ziploc bag, cut a hole in the corner and then squeezed the cheese mixture on top of the jello.
  9. Top with whipped cream and optionally add little sugar hearts.
