Oh my, you will fall in love with this No Bake Salted Caramel Apple Cheesecake in a Jar. Quick, easy and so yummy! I have been making up these cute and tasty cheesecakes in a jar this past week. I like cheesecake but not totally “in to” it like my daughter is. I made her up a few of these no bake cheesecakes in a jar. She LOVED the strawberry so I figured I would make her up a apple cheesecake for her lunch. Tossing no bake cheesecake into a jar is so convenient and these work great for having for desserts at a party or any sort of get together.
No Bake Salted Caramel Apple Cheesecake in a Jar
If you have read my blog at all you know that I like to put together quick and easy recipes. This one fits that description for sure. I normally purchase the Jell-O No Bake in a box but I came up with a quick and easy from scratch recipe that is so yummy (and easy)! A bar of cream cheese, some whipping cream, canned apples and a few other miscellaneous ingredients and you have one tasty treat to enjoy.

1/2 cup light Corn syrup
1/2 cup Sugar
3 tbsp Butter
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
Beat together cream cheese, lemon juice, vanilla and sugar until creamy.
In a large bowl whip the heavy cream until peaks form.
