When it comes to New Year's Eve, my family and I like to keep it low key, fuss free, yet still fun and festive each year. We usually stay home to ring in the new year with a little bubbly (sparkling wine for my husband & I and sparkling grape cider for the kiddos), lots of tasty appetizers, and a classy dessert. We may not be painting the town at some swanky party when the clock strikes midnight, but we still like to do something special at home as a family to celebrate the beginning of a new year.

This December 31st my family and I will be indulging in these easy to make No-Bake Cannoli Cheesecake Shortcakes. And to make them even more fun, I plan on setting up a toppings bar so everyone can garnish their shortcakes with their favorite fruits and candies... :)

We topped our shortcakes with fresh raspberries, mini chocolate chips, pomegranate seeds, sliced strawberries, and my Candied Pomegranate-Mandarin Orange Peel, but feel free to use your family's favorite toppings for your NYE dessert bar. You can fill the shortcake shells with the cannoli cheesecake filling ahead of time, cover, and refrigerate until you are ready to serve them. Then simply set out your dessert toppings, and let everyone go to town! :)
