No Bake Vanilla Bean Cheesecake for Two

Chef Shelley
Ghiradelli white chocolate comes in a 4oz bar, use the extra ounce for decoration or just eat it. If you don’t want to buy a box of cookies for the small amount for the crust, make them crustless. This silicone pan makes popping them out a cinch. http://amzn.to/2lfLoyV If you’re using a regular muffin tin, freeze them solid and then dip the bottom in very hot water, run a knife around the edge, turn it upside down and tap them on the counter till they come out.
