Delicious cool summer dessert that is made in minutes and blows you away with flavors. Smooth, creamy chocolate cherry cheesecake made with fresh cherries and crispy, sweet and salty cracker crumb on the bottom.
Food blogger’s (and any other foodie’s) mind set is very different when it comes to ingredients and products. We see product and ingredients in a different and unusual way.
Most people, when they see products like mangoes, creamers, ice cream, crackers and just about anything else, don’t automatically think, “what can I make out of this?” “How can I incorporate it into a recipe in a creative way?” Most people take crackers as a great snack or think of something they can put on top or dip it in. In our foodie minds, we automatically think of ways to incorporate products into recipes and different creative things you can do with it. Because every product and ingredient has so many possibilities.
That could be why I love the show “Chopped” so much, since the whole point there is to get as creative as possible with ingredients and transform them onto something totally different. Talk about fun!
Our fun doesn’t end at finding creative ways to use ingredients but also extends to coming up with creative, and sometimes adventurous, ingredients and flavor combinations.
But it’s really that way for all foodies, everyone who enjoys food and thinks that cooking is an art. Much like Jam Stand a new food company I discovered. They are a local company to Brooklyn, NY, which creates, you guessed it, awesome jams. Jam Stand was started by two best friends who wanted to learn the art of jam making. Their jams are homemade and so imaginative. They combine some creative flavors in their product for a fun and delicious results.
It’s no wonder that Triscuit crackers came to them for a challenge to create a jam that would be perfectly paired with their crackers. Girls came up with Cherry Ginger Jam and I just had to order it and try it because I bet those two flavors are fantastic in a jam, as well as, paired with a salty cracker.
Awaiting for my mouthwatering jar of Cherry Ginger jam (and Triscuit crackers), I couldn’t help but whip up something delicious as well.
These little pies in a jar are awesome! I am in love with the flavor combination here. I honestly didn’t expect these flavors to come together this well. I knew that they would be delicious together but they just compliment and work off of each other in a perfect harmony. It’s a great combination of a crispy, salty and sweet crumble on the bottom that is topped with fresh cherries and smooth chocolate cheesecake. Plus you know just how great chocolate cherry flavor combination is! You have to be sure to get all three in one bite for the perfect flavor pop.
This is no boring pie!

- 4 oz jars (7-8 jars)
- Beat cream cheese with an electric mixer, on medium-high for about 2 minutes.
