3. Hawaiian Cheesecake

Keeping with the tropical paradise theme, this cheesecake is flavored with pineapple and coconut, and sprinkled with pecans. If you really want to take it to the next level, chop up macadamia nuts to shower over the top.

4. Creamsicle® Cheesecake

Here's a flavor blast from your past. If you loved Creamsicles when you were a kid, you'll love the orange/vanilla combo in this playful cheesecake. All you need now is the sound of an ice cream truck driving down your street.

5. Cheesecake in a Jar

Summer picnic, anyone? The recipe calls for strawberries, but you know you can use any fresh summer fruit you like. These little charmers are perfect take-alongs for music in the park or bonfires at the beach.

6. White Chocolate Blueberry Cheesecake

You're not going to want to hear this, but it's crucial that you cool this cheesecake overnight so it can properly firm up. What makes the waiting even harder is knowing that the crust is made with caramel in the mix. Hold me back!
