First off, there is nothing better than a smooth and creamy cheesecake! Second, there is nothing we love more than a recipe that requires little-to-no effort! Not to mention a recipe that we can easily include the kids, getting them in the kitchen to help us! They loved not only being able to snack on the mini eggs (mayyybe they had more than they should have), but being able to smash them up to put in the cake was a blast!
There is literally zero baking required for this, so no need to preheat your oven or warm up the kitchen on a warm day! We made it as a family, the kids had a blast and it tastes fantastic!
