I can’t think of a better summer treat than these cheesecake bites!! They are sweet little bites of heaven and they are NO-BAKE!

I love cheesecakes, but hate the complexity of baking them in the oven. These little desserts are like a no bake cheesecake in bite-sized form, with a tasty chocolate coating!

No Bake for the Win!

I don’t know about you guys but our summer in Arizona is HOT. It’s rare when the temperature is below 100 degrees during these summer months. The last thing I want to do is warm up my house by turning on my oven. I am always on the lookout for good no-bake meals and desserts.

These no bake cheesecake bites are a WINNER at our house. They are the yummiest little things and I love that I don’t have to turn on my oven to make them.

These tasty cheesecake bites are great for parties and group gatherings. Everyone loves a good finger food dessert. Perfect for eating while chatting with friends and family. No utensils required! There is no wrong time to make cheesecake bites—so what are you waiting for??

How to Make Cheesecake Bites

This is the easiest no-bake dessert out there!

MIX. Start by mixing the cream cheese and butter in a large bowl until it’s all well combined. Then fold in graham cracker crumbs and mix well. Add in the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time.

CHILL. Once everything is mixed together, cover and chill for 2 hours.

SCOOP. Grab a cookie scoop and use it to scoop out batter. Place each ball on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate these for 10 minutes. Roll the scoops into more round balls and put back in the fridge for another 10 minutes.

CHOCOLATE COATING. While the balls are chilling, melt the chocolate in a small pot and mix constantly until melted. Place a ball on a fork and dip in the chocolate making sure to coat all around. Place ball on wax paper and refrigerate. Melt white candy coating and place in a Ziploc bag with one corner cut. Drizzle the white chocolate over each ball and let them harden.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Variations + Storing

Variations. Here are some fun ways to change these up…

  • Add a topping when the chocolate is still setting – crushed cookies, toffee bits or sprinkles all work great.
  • Use different chocolates to dip it in – white, milk, semi-sweet, dark chocolate all work.
  • Change out the graham cracker crumbs with other cookie crumbs (OREOS, Nilla Wafers, Sandies) would be good.

Lots of possibilities so get creative!

Store. Store these cheesecake bites in the fridge in an airtight container. They should stay good for up to 6 days in the fridge.

Freeze. If you need to store them for longer, I suggest storing them in a freezer-safe container in the freezer. They will last 6-8 months in the freezer!

  1. Why does my graham cracker crust crumble when I take the cheesecake out of pie pan? I don’t butter the glass pie pan.

    1. This recipe just has the graham cracker crumbs inside the mixture. Are you referring to a different cheesecake recipe? But if you are needing a good graham cracker crust, this is our favorite recipe! We love the ratio of butter to graham crackers and you’ll want to make sure you press it together enough so it stays.

  2. 1 star
    I made these and doubled the recipe. They were tooth ache sweet and not in a good way, plus they don’t hold their shape. Great idea but not great execution. I have to throw out all this wasted ingredients

  3. 3 stars
    Followed recipe exactly, but no matter how long I leave cream cheese mixture in fridge, these are impossible to shape…..too mushy and does not taste like cheesecake.

    1. Sorry to hear you have had troubles with the recipe. I love to use a cookie scoop to help shape the bites. It seems to help a lot! Thanks for giving the recipe a try and for sharing your feedback.

    1. I would just put the stick in, once you have rolled into balls & before you dip in the chocolate coating. Great idea!
