The No-Bake Rocky Road Cheesecake That Will Make You Smack Your Momma

Last week, I shared with you an awesome low fat recipe for strawberry swirl cheesecake bars. Those were made the traditional way. I also know there are those who are not so good at baking but still want to try their hand at making a cheesecake.

I have found a delicious no-bake cheesecake recipe for all of you non-bakers out there. It is a match made in heaven putting together the taste of two wonderful treats, Rocky Road ice cream and cheesecake. Calm down! I am sharing this recipe from Kraft verbatim as I feel if you are going to go down that rocky road, you are going to need the extra fat for cushion. Ha ha!
