Little fact you may or may not know about me? I am an Ohio State graduate…I attended in 2000 to early 2005 and graduated with two degrees from the university. We still live in Central Ohio and love tailgating with friends! Matter of fact, we’re hosting a tailgate at our house in September for the Ohio State vs. University of Cincinnati game! So I was SO excited when I saw that Jell-O came out with awesome collegiate Jello molds for tailgating food ideas! I’ll show you how I used the Jell-O mold to create quick and easy Ohio State Tailgating Food Ideas with these Mini Jell-O Cheesecakes!

These were pretty easy to make, just be sure to follow the instructions (unlike me). First, you have to pick up the most integral part of this process…the Jell-O mold! You can get them online at Walmart.com!

CaptureThere may be some in stores, as well, but if not you can check online to see what you can find! Next, I picked up a box of Jell-O No Bake Cheesecake and grabbed the things needed to make that (milk).

Jello Cheesecake Ingredients

I made mini-cheesecakes in a mini muffin tin and let them cool off. Mean while I made my Strawberry Jell-O according to the large Ohio State box. Don’t go by the Jell-O box! You make it with 2/3 cup boiling water and that’s it. **trust me, I made them wrong twice before realizing I was missing the instructions on the side of the mold box vs. the Jell-O box**

I sprayed the molds down with cooking spray, prepared my Jell-O and then poured it individually into the molds.

Let cool for 2-3 hours and then use a sharp knife to gently pull away from the edges. They came out fairly easy for me {once I did it right and used the right recipe}.

From there, I placed them on top of my mini cheesecakes and displayed them proudly. They are so pretty and festive and I KNOW people will love them!
