Easy No Bake Peppermint White Chocolate Cheesecake

Cheesecakes are one of my desserts to make. Cookies are up there too. It doesn’t matter if they’re baked or not. You can literally add so many different flavors into cheesecake. I have a cookie butter cheesecake on my blog that is probably my all-time favorite with the triple chocolate cheesecake coming in close behind.

This easy no bake cheesecake recipe is different than those though. It’s NO BAKE! That means you don’t have to worry about it taking up that precious oven time this Christmas. We all know how important it is to be baking cookies all December. Or maybe that’s just me…

I added a white chocolate drizzle to the top of the cheesecake. I’m thinking that it would look really pretty with some red candy melts that you can get from most stores and just melt that to drizzle on top. The chocolate does harden because no heavy cream has been added to it. I really like the crunch of the cold chocolate. It’s similar to biting into a chocolate covered ice cream cone.

Another thing that I think would be good to cover is why I have the crust up the sides of the cheesecake. You can either have the crust going up the sides to keep it tidy when you remove the springform pan or you can use a torch and heat up the sides to help the cheesecake release. Of course you can just open up the springform pan and hope for the best, that’s totally up to you.

One more thing. Those peppermint candies on top are so cute, right? Add those just before serving the cheesecake. They will start seeping their beautiful red stripes into the whipped cream after being stored in the fridge for a while. Trust me, I know from experience.
