A former prisoner on TikTok has shown the way he used to make delicious cheesecakes with few ingredients and utensils while in jail.

Uploaded by @hollywood_jones810, he divulged step-by-step instructions on making a prison-style cheesecake without an oven or inexpensive ingredients.

The ingredients are: Snickers, powdered milk, honey buns, vanilla cream cookies, water, and cream cheese, which can all be acquired behind bars.

To make the cheesecake, he said you need to separate the cream from the cookies, putting the cookies aside in one bowl and the cream in another.

Then, in the same bowl you have the cookies in, crush them up to your desired consistency to make them into a nice crunch.

Next, you’re going to add the honey buns to the crushed cookie mix. Pour a little bit of water into the mixture and knead it with your hands to make a dough ball.

Add more water if you need to. Afterwards, place the dough on a flat surface and roll out the dough to look like a pizza pie.

Next, you’re going to mix the cream separated from the cookies earlier with powdered milk.

Once the cream and powdered milk are mixed, add cream cheese and Snickers. Mix it again.

Lastly, spread the cream mixture over the dough and let it sit for two hours before serving. That’s it!
