No-Bake Cheesecake Truffles

No bake cheesecake trufflesI think I’ve mentioned this before on the blog, but Trey is a cheesecake kind of guy. Most of our vacations together so far have involved room service cheesecake at some point.

It’s hard to compete with room service cheesecake. Not because it’s necessarily the best cheesecake. I think it has something to do with the fact that you just pick up the phone, and then thirty or forty-five minutes later it magically appears outside your hotel room. 

Room service cheesecake is magic.

Cheesecake trufflesThese cheesecake truffles are a little bit magic, too. There’s no baking involved. Actually, there’s really no “cooking” to speak of. This isn’t really even a recipe, more assembly instructions. And the lesson I draw from this is that sometimes magic = convenience. 🙂

How to make no bake cheesecake bites1.) Use a box of no-bake cheesecake and follow the instructions to make it. I added cherry pie filling to the top. You could choose to add whatever you like: strawberry pie filling, jam, Nutella, or keep it plain. Once you’ve made the cheesecake, wrap it in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for at least two hours, or overnight.

2.) Use a melon baller to scoop out balls of frozen cheesecake. The key is to scoop a little bit of crust, cheesecake, and topping in each bit.

3.) Melt some candy melts according to the package. Use a spoon to carefully dip the frozen cheesecake balls in the melted chocolate. If your bites get too warm, pop them back in the freezer for ten minutes. They are much easier to dip if they are frozen.

4.) Top with a drizzle of white chocolate or sprinkles. Chill until you’re ready to eat.

Cheesecake bitesI placed my cheesecake truffles in mini baking cups so they’d look a little bit more professional. You could easily wrap these in a small box to gift to a friend or your crush. Just remember that cheesecake should be refrigerated over longer periods of time, and be sure to consume these within a week. Enjoy! xo. Emma

    I absolutely love cheesecake, and I love truffles, so this is practically heaven to me! #pinnedit

  • You could just pickup a Philadelphia Cheesecake filling or make your own no bake filling. We like to use 1pkg cream cheese, 1+ cup peanut butter and just enough granulated sugar creamed together.

    Wondering if you could mix or maybe just fold some of the crust into the balls for added texture and flavor, especially if using something other than graham cracker crumbs (like oreos, brownie or cookie crusts, diced nuts, etc).

  • Great photography! These look delicious!! xxx

  • Oh my goodness these look incredible but I don’t think I can even buy any of these ingredients here! And it might be a little heartbreaking to ball up a cheesecake made from scratch :/

    I will have to have a hunt around as these look too cute and yummy!

  • Oh my god. First off all, WHO KNEW NO-BAKE CHEESECAKE WAS EVEN A THING??? You kidding me?! Where has it been all my life. Second of all, I love the idea of melting down those candies to use as a coating – just brilliant. Can’t wait to try this!!

  • Yum! I love cheesecake! I think I would like them covered in normal chocolate though

  • it’s scary to me to think about all of the ingredients in foods like these. alternatively, it would probably work well with left over cheese cake made from real, whole food ingredients.

  • What a lovely idea! I love new food gift ideas so this one’s getting added to the list! Thanks!

  • I adore no bake cheesecake. A friend of mine made bite size no bake cheesecakes for one of her recitals, but this sounds easier and just as yummy!

  • I love the sound of these! I featured this recipe on my Link Love roundup!

  • What candy melts did you use? I’ve tried some before and failed miserably! Or do you have tips? Mine never got to liquid, they stayed too thick.

  • These look great. Will definitely try soon. Do you know if there is egg in the cheesecake filling? Thanks!

  • Смотрятся очень аппетитно! Я уверена, что они вкусные!

  • i suppose you could make these in a square pan and cut them into bite size squares then dip them?? you will get crust, filling and toppin with no waste….

  • these look so cute! perfect for giving away esp. during the valentine season 🙂 can’t wait to try it out!

  • These look so fancy! I made little cheesecake bites with my students last year, but they were just smashed oreos mixed with cream cheese and covered in chocolate! These are much more attractive!

  • yum!! I’m also a cheesecake fanatic, so I’ll have to give these a try!

  • great alternative for when you’re sick of cake balls. wait does that actually happen?

    http://semiweeklyeats.blogspot.com/2014/02/nelson-famous-green-beans.html

  • Is there a way to make this without actually making an entire pie just to deconstruct it and also waste the crust? It seems like there are some unnecessary steps & waste here.

  • these look unreal!!! mmmmm!

    im going to make some 🙂

  • I would love a demonstration of doing the candy melts correctly. It doesn’t matter what I do, I can never get it melted enough for it to be a dipping type consistency…and just end up with these masses of “dipped” whatever…and it’s a mess! Teach me! Please!! 😉

  • I didn’t even know Jell-O made a cheesecake mix like that! This recipe seems so convenient and great if you’re in a pinch for time. Send me some of these!!

  • cheesecake really is my kryptonite so I’m happy to have another way to make it. yum! =)

  • Will definitely have to try this one! With nutella? Yes, please!

  • Mouth is literally watering right now.. Drool. Everywhere.

    Thanks for this! x

  • I’m definitely bookmarking this and making them soon! I love cheesecake and these look so easy. Thanks for sharing!

  • oh yum! the colours reminded me of red velvet cake. truffles are little bites of heaven!
    xx

  • So pretty! Beautiful photography. And I’m sure they taste delicious, too. I’ve made regular truffles but have never thought of cheesecake ones. I’m not sure I would be the biggest fan myself but I love gifting truffles to others, and most of my usual recipients love cheesecake.
