One of my favorite recipes…

Oh so yummy and perfect for summer. You don’t have to bake it and it is great to make ahead! My MIL is here for the weekend and as it is one of her favorites, as well as mine…I thought it would be nice to have a treat. Also, since one of my readers requested the recipe…I’ve been looking for a reason to make it and share the recipe with you.:)

Frozen Mocha Cheesecake



1/2 cup butter or margarine

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup cocoa

Melt better in medium saucepan over medium heat. (Microwave works fine too) Stir in crumbs, sugar and cocoa. Press crumbs into ungreased 9-inch springform pan, bottom and sides.


8 oz. cream cheese, softened

11 oz. Sweetened Condensed Milk

2/3 cup Chocolate Flavored Syrup (I use Hershey’s…the kind of topping ice cream)

1 tablespoon instant coffee granules

1 teaspoon hot water

1 cup whipping cream, whipped or 500 mL of Frozen Whipped Topping

Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in milk and chocolate syrup.

Dissolve coffee in water. Add to cheese mixture.

Beat cream until stiff. Fold into cheese batter. Pour into prepared pan. Freeze

This recipe comes from Company’s Coming Desserts Recipe book by Jean Pare. She is a Canadian author of a huge, very popular series of recipe books. I love them because they are so practical and great family recipes. The desserts recipes book is now a classic and was one of the few recipe books I received as a Bridal shower gift 18 years ago. It now looks a little worn as it has received a lot of use in my house.:) Jean Pare and Company’s Coming were a feature article series in the Taste of Home magazine a few years ago. Company’s Coming now has its own web-site…you may want to check it out.

Check back in tomorrow for a {C’est Bon} article featuring a product I love!
