If you don't have whipped cream, use chilled cream with a high butterfat content (read more about whipping cream). Just whip until doubled in volume. Use a wire whisk, a hand mixer or a stand mixer. The prep time will take a little longer though.
Stir together the crushed Graham crackers, one tablespoon sugar and melted butter.
Beat the cream cheese with the remaining quarter cup of sugar until fluffy. Fold in the whipped cream.
Place a teaspoonful of the Graham cracker mixture into glasses.
Drop in a tablespoonful or two of the cream cheese mixture (a piping bag will do a cleaner job).
Top the cream cheese mixture with pieces of fresh fruit.
Repeat the three layers.
Add a final dollop of cream cheese mixture.
Optionally, drizzle in salted caramel.
If you're not a fan of caramel but you want to drizzle something over the no-bake fruit and cheese dessert to give it a polished look, here are two suggestions:1. Chocolate syrup: Take equal amounts of chocolate and cream. Chop the chocolate. Heat the cream in the microwave just until bubbly. Stir in the chocolate until melted.2. Fruit syrup: Stir jam and enough hot water to make the mixture pourable.
