Mini No-Bake Cheesecakes Recipe

Mini No-Bake Cheesecakes, those three words are music to my ears. First of all, I love a mini dessert that is individually portioned. I don’t like sharing my desserts:) Second, no-bake. I am all about easy no-bake desserts, especially when it is hot outside. Finally, cheesecake. Do we really need to talk about that one? It is pretty self explanatory. Yes to cheesecake, always!

Mini No-Bake Cheesecakes are pretty much the perfect dessert.

I found the recipe for these adorable little cheesecakes in my good friend Jamielyn’s new cookbook, The I Heart Naptime Cookbook. The cookbook is filled with over 100 family friendly recipes, plus some fun crafts that the kiddos will love. The boys and I have bookmarked several recipes and crafts to try! I am not a crafty, but Jamielyn has the cutest ideas and makes it look easy. I think I can do it:)

The mini no-bake cheesecakes are rich, creamy, and have a sweet graham cracker crust. And the best part? They only take 30 minutes to make.

I like to top the cheesecakes with fresh strawberry slices. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cherry pie filling, or salted caramel sauce would also be good.

I like to serve the mini cheesecakes in little jars because they are easy to store, easy to transport, and they are super cute. These little cheesecakes are the perfect dessert for parties. You can make them in advance and you can take them on the go. Make them for your Labor Day BBQ this weekend!

In the cookbook, Jamielyn also suggests making little cheesecake tarts. Bite size tarts would be fun too! I will have to try those next time.

Pick up a copy of The I Heart Naptime Cookbook and make Mini No-Bake Cheesecakes. I still have a few in the fridge so I am going to grab a spoon and take my mini cheesecake in the closet. The boys will never find me:)

  1. Do I have to share?! These look delicious! I can’t wait to make up a batch of these cheesecakes!

  2. Cheesecake is just yummy, but I usually order at a restaurant. But I always wonder if the quality of the cream cheese matters, like no-name verses Philly?

    1. Personally my entire household of 5 prefer the generic brand preferably price rite brand cream cheese blocks to the much more expensive and ultimately disgusting textured and tasting Philadelphia cream cheese.

  3. The strawberries against the white really pops and makes these look amazing! definitely agree, if I make these I might not share!

  4. Thank you so much for sharing! Your photos are absolutely beautiful! Now I’m craving cheesecake and must make these again asap! XO

  5. this seems like a silly question but I am ready to make these and forgot the lemon, can i omit the lemon or use a different citrus fruit instead, like lime or clementine?

    1. If you use 2 pkgs of graham crackers, once processed, you get about 2 cups of graham cracker crumbs. There is plenty of cheesecake filling, so you might as well use all of the crumbs and then just make 12 servings rather than 10. Each serving still has plenty of the graham cracker crumb mixture (about 2 tbsp per 4 oz jar), and plenty of cheesecake filling (a little more than 1/3 c. per jar). I used a pestle to press the crumbs in jar and it worked perfectly!

  6. I’d like to thank these mini cheesecakes for their audition and head shots, and would like to say that they got the job and I can’t wait to have them in MY BELLY 😉

    This was delicious and went over very well with my guests! I only used half the sugar called for in both the crust and filling and next time might omit it entirely as I think the sweetened condensed milk probably adds enough sweetness. I used a honey dipper to press down the crust, which worked well. Overall, these were very easy to make. I served this with Oreo cookies, chocolate chip cookies, M&Ms, chocolate sauce, and vanilla sauce as potential toppings. It’s a really cute idea as well.

  8. I used half measures and they have been in freezer lot longer than 15 mins and filling is still runny? Is this right? Hahahahah

      I made the recipe exactly as it was written. My cream cheese mixture did not harden up, is it suppose not be as thick as normal cheesecake?

  9. 5 stars
    Came out great! I used muffin tins instead of jars (just what I had on hand) and it makes a dozen and a half easily, which is how I ended up with 54 mini cheesecakes in my fridge instead of 36, but they look fabulous!

    I made this cheesecake for a young man who was in an elk hunting camp on his birthday. The outfitters wanted to surprise him with a cheesecake, but, he was allergic to eggs. I made it, and the outfitter transported it up to the elk camp on a 4 wheeler. I received so many compliments on it; his father said I had to share the recipe with him!!!

  11. How many does this make? I am actually going to use the Keebler mini-graham cracker crusts which are 4 oz. also.
