No-bake Salted Caramel Cheesecake Mousse

Adapted from Barefeet In The Kitchen


  • 16 ounces Cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup Caramel sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups Crushed pretzels
  • 1/4 cup Butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup Light brown sugar


  1. Mix together the pretzels, brown sugar and butter. Set aside.
  2. Cream together the cream cheese and the sugar until smooth. Slowly add the cream, mixing until well combined. Stir in the lemon juice and vanilla. Set out 4-6 small jars and scoop 2-3 tablespoons of the pretzel mixture into each jar. Press the crumbs down to form the bottom crust. You’ll want to use about 2/3 of the crumb mixture for the bottom layers.
  3. Scoop about half of the cheesecake filling into each jar and spread it across the crumb layer. Drizzle a tablespoon or so of caramel over the filling and then scoop another layer of cheesecake on top of the caramel. Top with another drizzle of caramel and sprinkle with the remaining pretzel crumbs. Chill for an hour or overnight before serving with the no-bake caramel pretzel cookies.
