This next recipe has me drooling. It looks so delicious and fresh, and I want some right now. 😉 You’d think that after blogging for almost 4 years I’d know that by now, but I guess I’m still learning, lol.

This Cherry Cheesecake Delight is perfect for the Cheesecake lover, and also perfect for a sweet treat on Valentine’s Day. I mean, how you can deny all that beautiful red in the cherries? Pure perfection!! If you don’t like cherries – no worries! Just substitute them for some delicious strawberries. Either way, you have an easy and delicious treat. 😉

Serving them in jars like these makes them so irresistible! I think it also makes them perfect for a gathering or party. No matter how you serve them I can guarantee they will be a hit. This sweet treat is not just pretty, but it’s darn right delicious!

    Absolute dreamy! Could you tell me where you got the adorable jars? I have seen canning jars similar to this but they also have the canning company name on it. Thank you for such great recipes and ideas.
