No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake

My regular No Bake Cheesecake Recipe is one of the most popular recipes on my site and has been for quite a while. It is about time that I test and post a chocolate version, don’t you think?? 

Just like the original, this cheesecake is CRAZY easy to whip together and totally sliceable!! Most other no bake cheesecake recipes turn to a puddle within a few minutes of being out of the fridge.. not this one! The texture is extremely creamy. We absolutely love it.

Ingredients for No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake

  • 1 pint (or 2 cups) heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 24 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 pkg (3.4 oz) cheesecake (or chocolate) flavored pudding mix
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • Crust of Choice (can either make your own to use in a springform pan or use store-bought chocolate cookie pie crusts)

A few notes on these ingredients: It is very important to use heavy whipping cream, half and half will not work. As for the cream cheese, make sure that it is truly room temperate. You can do this by setting it out on the counter for a few hours or (if you are like me 😉 ) you totally forget and need a quick fix. I find that laying a warm heating pad or microwave rice bag on the cream cheese for 5-10 minutes on each side will bring the cream cheese to room temperature quickly. 

I suggest using the chocolate chips that you like best. If that is milk, use milk. If you like dark chocolate use dark chocolate chips! I like to use a mix of milk chocolate and semi-sweet, personally.

How to make No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake 

To make the Chocolate Cheesecake, the first thing you’ll want to do is melt the chocolate chips until smooth. I do this in the microwave- microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring in between until smooth. Set the chocolate aside, you’ll need it melted, but cooled down. 

If making your own crust, crush 30 Oreo cookies and then mix in 6 tbsp of melted butter. Press this into your 9 inch spring form pan and toss in the freezer until the filling is ready.

Use either a stand mixer or electric hand mixer to whip the heavy whipping cream and sugar into whipped cream. Use your whisk attachment and beat that whipping cream until it thickens and stiff peaks form. We will set this aside for now, I usually transfer it to a large bowl so I can continue to use my stand mixer and whisk attachment for the next steps. No need to clean out the bowl, either!

The room temperature cream cheese goes into the stand mixer bowl now. Beat the cream cheese until smooth, while the cream cheese is being mixed, slowly add in the pudding mix. Scrape sides of the bowl and then beat until completely smooth. With the mixer turned on low, slowly add the melted cheese to the mixture. 

Once the melted chocolate has been fully incorporated, start adding the whipped cream to the bowl, little by little until all of the whipped cream has been added. Your chocolate cheesecake filling is now done!

Use an offset spatula to smooth the cheesecake filling. Refrigerate overnight for best results.. slice and serve!!

Can I Freeze my No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake?

Yes, this freezes so well!! Freeze in slices in an airtight container. When you are ready to eat, set at room temperature for 30 minutes or in the fridge overnight.

    This recipe is another favorite of ours because it is quick and easy! This cheesecake is super Duper yummy with Hershey chocolate! 🙂 I always choose the easy route and just get the pre-baked crust. Next time I would like to make the syrups from the lemonade and drizzle it over top of the cheesecake. 🙂 Karli never disappoints!

  2. Thank you for the comment Alexandria, you rock! I’m so glad you enjoy these recipes. Keep up the good baking work! 🙂
