    How to make No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

    Let’s start by gathering the ingredients we need to make our No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake.

    In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese for 1 minute or until smooth. Add the confectioner’s sugar and beat until well blended. Add the vanilla extract or vanilla packet and mix again until well blended.


    Melt the chocolate over a double boiler. Let it cool slightly before adding it to the cream cheese mixture.

    With the mixer on a slow speed, add the melted chocolate to the cream cheese mixture, pouring it slowly. Mix until well blended.

    In a clean bowl (or before you start making the cheesecake) whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.

    Gently fold the whipped cream into the chocolate cream cheese mixture. Mix gently until fully blended.

    Refrigerate the cheesecake mixture while making the crust.


    In a medium bowl, mix together the Pan di Stelle cookie crumbs, cocoa powder, and melted butter. Stir until the ingredients are fully combined.

    Pour the mixture into a 10-inch springform pan.

    Press the mixture firmly onto the bottom of the pan to form the crust.

    Spoon the prepared chocolate cheesecake mixture into the pan, smoothing the top with a spatula.

    Garnish the top of the cheesecake with raspberries and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.


    So when the weather gets still hot (or you just don’t feel like turning on the oven) this no-bake chocolate cheesecake is guaranteed to brighten your day and those lucky enough to get a slice!

    OUR TIP: Because no-bake cheesecake needs to chill in the fridge, it’s also the perfect make-ahead dessert. It can easily be made the day before and go in the fridge overnight to chill, set and firm up. We do not recommend freezing this cheesecake, however. Freezing no-bake cheesecake can create ice crystals, and the cheesecake will lose its velvety smooth texture.
