Explore the The Best No Bake Cheesecake Recipes which are easy to make. Plus perfect for parties, events or for a special occasion and taste delicious too!

No bake cheesecake are, in my opinion of the best and easiest things you can make at home. They only need a cool fridge and a few hours from initial ingredients to start with to serving. The quickest you can go from making to serving is about one and a half hours. You can make every single one of these cheesecakes ahead of time. You can keep them in the fridge until you need them. I often make these the day before I need them. To start I will do the base, cream cheese layer and any toppings which won’t change or move before serving. I keep fresh fruit or anything that might be juicy until just about to serve.

Can I make no bake cheesecake ahead of time?

Yes you can make no bake cheesecake ahead of time. It works really well when being made ahead of time. I would recommend removing the cheesecake from the cake tin after 1 hour of setting. If the cheesecake is left in the tin for too long it can be harder to get out. I remove it after an hour and place it on the plate it will be served on and pop it back in to the fridge until it is ready.

How do you thicken a no bake cheesecake?

To make sure the cheesecake is going to set make sure you drain off any excess water from the cream cheese before mixing with the sugar. Also make sure the double cream that you use is whipped up until thick. When it is mixed with the cream cheese it will lose some of it’s thickness so we need it to be thick to start with. Make sure you don’t use anything runny in the cream cheese mixture that will be stop it setting. If you do want to add something try adding it as a layer or add some extra icing sugar to thicken up the mixture.

What soft cheese is best for cheesecake?

For my no bake cheesecakes recipes I normally use supermarket own brand full fat cream cheese. I’ve found they all work pretty well. If it’s on offer I use Philadelphia cream cheese for the no bake cheesecake. No matter which one you use make sure to drain off any water that might have settled in the packet. Any excess water might impact the finished set of the cream cheese layer.

Toffee popcorn cheesecake

Toffee cheesecake is always a popular choice for events and parties. The mix of cream cheese with toffee drizzle works so well. The addition of toffee popcorn makes it look impressive and makes everyone want to start nibbling. If you can find small toffee pieces I would recommend adding to the cream cheese mix. It adds an extra toffee goodness to the finished cheesecake.

Cranberry cheesecake

This is a rich and beautiful cheesecake and perfect for a Christmas centre piece. The dark chocolate biscuit base with rich creamy layer is delicious enough but the addition of the sweet and sour cranberries on top takes it to the next level. Make the cranberries as sweet or sour as you like. I love to make it slightly sour to compliment the sweeter cream cheese below.

Black Forest no bake cheesecake

This is my most ask for cheesecake in my family. It is so wonderful and the slippery gooey cherries with the crisp pieces of dark chocolates on top gives it that beautiful Black Forest flavour. Add the cream cheese and chocolate biscuit base you have all the best flavours together. I would recommend adding the cherries and chocolate when you want to serve it.

Toblerone Cheesecake

Toberlone cheesecake decorated with pieces of chopped up Toberlone.

Toblerone is such a popular chocolate that of course I had to add it to a cheesecake. There are pieces of chocolate in the cream cheese and chopped up on top. Over the cream cheese layer I drizzled thick pieces of molten chocolate. It looks wonderful drizzling down the sides and is thin enough to easily slice through to cut in to.
