No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake

Not only is this no-bake chocolate cheesecake deliciously rich and amazing, it is also so easy to make. It’s the perfect no-bake chocolate cheesecake!

Cheesecake is a very emotional issue. Did you know that?

Apparently, if you put the word “no-bake” next to “cheesecake,” you better watch your back if you find yourself in a dark alley somewhere.

Even in a well-lit kitchen, you may not be safe.

I happen to be very nondiscriminatory when it comes to cheesecake (I’m not afraid).

With or without eggs, baked or not baked, crust or crustless, cheesecake deserves to have variations. And advocates.

And so, no-bake cheesecake can live in my world.

The one point that I happen to be very particular about, though, is that it has to taste fabulous, baked or not.

I’ve been working on a couple no-bake cheesecake variations over the last few months because sometimes, an ultra-light, creamy no-bake cheesecake is the only real option speaking to my soul.

Sadly, I’ve learned that not all no-bake cheesecakes are created equal (some far too sweet, others that slop and schmooze all over the plate once sliced, a few that wiggle like jello, and a couple that probably belong in the pudding, not cheesecake, category).

Thankfully after a couple tries at a chocolate version, success was had.

Not only is this decadent no-bake chocolate cheesecake deliciously rich and velvety and amazing, but it’s super simple and quick to whip up.

The only real time constraint is letting it chill long enough (and even that isn’t a big deal since you can easily make it a few hours before you want to serve it or up to a full day ahead).

With a whole different taste and texture than another favorite {baked} chocolate cheesecake (equally amazing, by the way), you may want to seriously consider opening your heart and soul to this no-bake chocolate cheesecake.

I’d hate for you to miss out.
