The Ingredient That Can Take Your No-Bake Desserts To The Next Level
Sometimes you might want an easy, no-fuss dessert that can come together quickly. When that’s the case, you can’t go wrong with a no-bake dessert, and if you’re making a no-bake dessert, chances are you should be incorporating one surprising ingredient.
Cream cheese adds key components to no-bake desserts that many of them could use. The soft, tangy cheese actually helps stabilize many desserts that have soft fillings or creamy textures that make up their base, and even if the dessert doesn't have the taste of cream cheese, more stabilization can help.
So if cream cheese is called for in a no-bake dessert, know that it will play a big part in the texture. You just might be surprised by how much it can improve the look and taste of even the most unexpected sweet treats, like homemade ice cream, where it adds an ultra-creamy, almost whipped texture.
