Cheesecake parfait

These little cups of awesomeness will blow your tastebuds away. Deliciously light and fluffy. The recipe is versatile, you can top with any flavour you desire. I have chosen passionfruit,  you could try chocolate nutella, chocolate, mars bar, oreo, the options are endless.

Best of all these cheesecake parfaits look awesome. These were made in plastic glasses to take to a BBQ, if you are travelling with these cheesecake cups add the topping and cream just before serving.
