Magically turn a favorite ready-made dessert into a novel homemade one, that no one will guess started with a shortcut. Yes, our Test Kitchen's awesome recipe for the easiest Crispy Cheesecake Squares will do you proud!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (8- to 9-inch) frozen cheesecake, slightly thawed
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 2 1/2 cups oven-toasted corn cereal, coarsely crushed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
What To Do:
  1. Cut cheesecake into 1-1/2-inch squares, place on platter, cover, and return to freezer.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine strawberries, blueberries, and 1/4 cup sugar. Cook over medium-high heat 15 minutes, or until fruit breaks down and sauce has thickened, stirring occasionally. Let cool and refrigerate until chilled.
  3. Meanwhile, in a shallow dish, combine cereal, remaining sugar, cinnamon, and butter; mix well.
  4. In a small bowl, combine corn syrup and vanilla. Drizzle a teaspoon of corn syrup mixture over each cheesecake square one at a time, then place in cereal mixture dish. Sprinkle cereal mixture over cheesecake square until all sides are coated evenly. Place on platter. Repeat with remaining squares.
  5. Cover and freeze until ready to serve or serve immediately with berry sauce drizzled over the top of each piece.

MR. FOOD KITCHEN --- For future reference -- Can we use corn or rice chex to make a crust ? - would we add corn syrup, melted butter and flavoring and then press it on rhe bottom and partially up the sides of a spring form pan or pie plate.--I'll try anything once --Thanks for your help.

this sounds great and sounds like it would make a perfect presentation... With dinner to make a fast dessert sounds marvelous..

A recipe for cheesecake that starts with cheesecake? Very disappointing.

You have to s tart somewhere.. Sounds great to me..
