Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Parfaits

Serves Serves 6-8     adjust servings


  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (13.4 oz) can dulce de leche (or make homemade dulce de leche!)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch salt
  • 15 gingersnaps (I used Nabisco)
  • 1 or 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 pound strawberries, hulled and quartered


  1. In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the dulce de leche (you can make your own from a can of sweetened condensed milk, click here!), vanilla, salt, and beat together, making sure to scrape down the sides.
  2. Crush the gingersnaps in a food processor, or you can use a rolling pin and a ziplock. Add 1 tablespoon melted butter and mix together. Add another tablespoon of butter if you want.
  3. Layer the cheesecake, crumbs, and strawberries in whatever order you want. Chill until ready to serve.
  4. It would be great served in wine glasses, 8-ounce clear plastic cups, or dessert bowls.
  5. You can also serve this as a dip! Serve it in a big bowl, sprinkle the crumbs over the top, and use strawberries for dipping.
