CARAMEL APPLE CHEESECAKE PARFAIT

 

our first holiday recipe was these cranberry orange mini cheesecakes. today we are showing you how to make caramel apple cheesecake parfaits, and they are my personal favorite of the three. these make great little gifts or the perfect dessert for your dinner party.

caramel apple cheesecake parfait
ingredients

• 1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
• 3 Tbsp. sugar, divided
• 1/2 cup vanilla nonfat Greek-style yogurt
• 1 Tbsp. butter
• 1 Fuji apple, sliced
• 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
• 8 graham crackers, crushed
• 1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping
• 1/2 tsp. sea salt

how to make the cheesecake…

MIX cream cheese and 2 Tbsp. sugar until blended; stir in yogurt.

MELT butter in large skillet on medium heat. Add apples, remaining sugar and cinnamon; cook 2 to 3 min. or until apples are tender, stirring frequently.

MICROWAVE caramel sauce in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 30 sec. or until warmed; stir in salt.

LAYER half each of the graham crumbs, cream cheese mixture, apples and caramel topping in 4 parfait glasses. Repeat layers.

*you can always substitute peach slices for the apple slices.


an easy entertaining tip: add chalkboard labels to your parfait jars. these parfaits can be served at your holiday party with your guest’s names written in chalk. or simply give your friend a delicious gift with a little note from you written on the side. you can find more holiday recipes and entertaining tips by visiting the philadelphia cheesecake cheer site
