Chocolate No-Bake Mini Cheesecakes

Chocolate Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts.  These no bake cheesecakes are simple to make and come in individual servings.

Chocolate no-bake cheesecakesRobb keeps telling me how old he is.  Him: I feel really old right now.  Me: Stop it.

Case in point, we met, or rather glanced, our oldest son’s math teacher recently.  We went to his choir concert, and after the concert his teacher passed by and told him she really enjoyed the concert.  We took her for one of the students.

Robb and Me: Who was that girl?  The Lizard: That was my math teacher.  Robb: I feel really old right now.

Another moment happened recently when Robb decided to revisit the good-old-days and give the Hippie Chick a unicorn pegasus ride to bed.  When she was little, this was a nightly routine.  Robb would get on all fours, Hippie Chick would climb on his back and ceremoniously place a “corn” on his forehead.  Then he would run (crawl) around the house, knocking obstacles out of the way, killing bad guys, and getting his “corn” stuck in trees.  11-year-olds are not nearly as enthralled with the idea of riding a unicorn pegasus as 5-year-olds are.

Robb: It’s a good thing we had kids when we were young.  I’m too old for this.  Me:  You looked good, though.

But nothing makes you feel old as realizing that you have become a fuddy-duddy.  Do you remember when you were a kid and your parents thought all the latest styles and all your amazing fun ideas were ridiculous?  I mean, my parents did NOT understand pegged pants.

My Dad: Your kids are going to make fun of you for this one day.  Me: MY kids would never do any such thing.

My kids had this amazing idea to sleep on the trampoline with their friends… in late October.  We don’t live in Arizona, people.  We live in Utah.  Home of the Winter Olympics.  We explained to them how uncomfortable they would be, but they were not deterred.  We explained that the trampoline is possibly the coldest place in the entire yard to sleep, but they were unconvinced.

Kids: It’s fun, we like it!  Robb and Me: Fine, whatever.  We’ll leave the door open.

The boys made it until about 5:00 am, when the dew hit them.  The girls, to their credit, slept soundly until 9:00 am.

Robb: Why do they even want to do that?  Me: We’re getting really old.

Easy mini cheesecake

To help my quest to feel young again, I made a dessert that is easy and chocolatey and kid-sized.  It feels like a special treat your mom might have left in the fridge for you to discover.  Or maybe it’s the first thing you made in Home Ec in 7th grade.  Or maybe it’s a brilliant idea that you and your best friend had one late night when bored.

I found this amazing Sharffen-Berger chocolate bar called “Milk Nibby,” which is milk chocolate with roasted cacao nibs.  It took all the restraint my adult self could muster to use the entire bar in the dessert and not take a huge bite out of it.  My 12-year-old self would never have been able to withstand the temptation.  This is a 3 oz. bar, but feel free to use whatever brand you want.  I did kind of wish it was a touch more chocolatey, so if your bar is 4 oz, go ahead and use the whole thing.

And then put on your one-piece jammies, watch some cartoons, and dive into your amazing no-bake chocolate and cream cheese creation head first.

Chocolate No-Bake Mini Cheesecakes
A very simple 3-Ingredient No-bake chocolate miniature cheesecake.
Category: Dessert
Yield: 4
  • 1 bar milk chocolate, 3-4 oz.
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 4 oz frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Ready-made miniature graham cracker pie crusts
  1. Chop chocolate into small pieces, and place in a microwave safe bowl. Cook in microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until completely melted.
  2. Add cream cheese and mix until completely combined. Fold in whipped topping, stirring until no streaks remain.
  3. Place chocolate mixture into pie crusts, and chill 20-30 minutes before serving.
I used the Scharffen-Berger "Milk Nibby" 3 oz. bar, half of an 8 oz. tub of "extra creamy" Cool Whip topping, and Keebler ready-made mini crusts.

  3. […] These Salted Dark Chocolate Cookies are the chocolatey best. If it’s chocolate that means love to you, I recommend the Triple Chocolate Chunk Oreo Cookies. If you’re more of an ice cream person, you’ll need some Hot Fudge Sauce with that. The Intense Dark Chocolate Cake is only for the most dedicated dark chocolate lovers. Kids and adults will both love these simple No Bake Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes. […]
