How to Make Orange Cheesecake


  • 1Make sure your milnot is cold in the fridge. In a medium bowl dissolve your orange jello in your boiling water and set it in the fridge to slightly chill.
  • 2Next, mix and set aside your 1/4 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of dry cracker crumbs for top of cheesecake. Mix 2 1/2 cups of cracker crumbs with melted butter and press into 13x9 pan. Cream together your room temperature cream cheese, sugar, and orange extract until they are fluffy.
  • 3Add your slightly chilled jello to your cream cheese mixture and blend well. In a large bowl with a mixer beat your cold milnot milk until stiff and add jello mixture to milnot mixture on low to combine.
  • 4Pour filling over crust. Top with cracker/chips mixture and Refridgerate for 6 hours. This is a light and airy cheesecake that I hope you will enjoy.
