Current situation: dreaming of not turning on the oven, but so desperately want dessert. Enter: these No Bake Cheesecake Bites.

Ahh. Necessity is indeed the mother of invention.

How to make No Bake Cheesecake Bites

Summer is HOT HOT HOT around here. One of the many reasons why we have been relying on these no bake beauties to satisfy our dessert cravings. If we don’t have to turn on that oven, we don’t!

The other reasons: These things are just PLAIN OMG DELISH.

It’s hard to say no to creamy cream cheese mixture topped onto a crumbly graham cracker crust. They are easy to put together and taste just like the cheesecakes that you bake in the oven.

The only thing you need to plan ahead for: start the prep work ahead of time because it does take a good 6-8 hours to just sit in the refrigerator so that the cream cheese mixture will firm up.

In fact, the closer to the 8 hours you can get it to sit in the refrigerator, the better.

Then you take them out and very carefully cut them into smaller pieces.

Small is probably relative. Let’s just say it’s small enough to do portion control, but also large enough to get your cheesecake fix.


Then top it with the toppings of your choices:

  • strawberries + strawberry sauce (our current choice 🙂 )
  • raspberries + raspberry sauce
  • blueberries + blueberry sauce
  • chocolate sauce and/or chocolate chips
  • caramel

The tangy sweet strawberry sauce compliments the creamy cheesecake filling. And that graham cracker crust is perfectly crumbly and sweet.

Ahhhh so yum.

How to serve it

If you are going to a potluck, cookout, or backyard party…bring this No Bake Cheesecake Bites to these gatherings and your people will love you for it.

When serving it, especially if you are bringing to an event where it will sit for a little while, I like to serve the strawberry sauce (or anything saucy for that matter) on the side, to prevent the cheesecake from getting uh…unattractive.

The sauce usually spreads in a weird way after sitting for a while. So yeah, not very attractive. But the good news is it really does not affect the taste or texture.

I still like to serve it on the side unless it will be consumed immediately. 😉

  • 8 oz fresh strawberries

  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries sliced


  • Crush graham crackers. Melt unsalted butter in the microwave. Combine "graham cracker crust" ingredients in a bowl and mixture well.
  • Line parchment paper on a 8" x 8" square casserole dish. Bring graham cracker mixture to casserole, spread evenly and gently press mixture with a spatula to form the crust.

  • Bring cream cheese mixture to graham cracker crust and spread it out evenly

    When I got this recipe in my inbox, I immediately looked for an excuse to make it. It was the perfect treat for a girls’ night. It tastes just like cheesecake, so delicious! I just had to remember to make it in the morning. I left it in the fridge for 8 hours, and it held together well. For anyone wondering, it took a little under 1 1/2 packs of whole graham crackers to make the 1 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers. Thanks for a yummy dessert recipe, MinShien!

  2. Hi, Can this be frozen?

    1. Joyous Apron says:

      Yes! However, I would add strawberries and sauce to it only when ready to serve.
