No Bake Mandarin Orange Cheese Cake

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Y Franche

This recipe was given to me by my best friend. She made it for me at her home, then I couldn't go without it for special occasions. It's very easy to make and the best I have ever tasted. Needs refrigeration in the preparation time. For the gelatin, one box weighs 28 grams and contains 4 envelopes. Use one envelope or 7 grams which is the equivalent of 1/4 ounce. In the original recipe, I had indicated 3 ounces which is way too much. Sorry for the mistake.

There wasn't enough crust to fill a 9x13 inch pan, but too much cheesecake mixture to fill an 11x7, so I made the 11x7 because that's what the crust filled, but had some leftover cheesecake mixture. This does taste fantastic though. Super creamy and the mandarin layer adds a lovely contrast in flavours to the middle.
