No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes

Beat the heat with these easy-to-make No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes! No oven required!

I went on a bit of a cheesecake bender a few weeks ago. The store was having a sale on cream cheese, so I stocked up. Due to some hot sauce overload, Jay and I were not able to finish the last batch of buffalo chicken dip I made (which is about the only reason I ever buy cream cheese). It made me very sad to throw out the leftovers a week later–Normally we’re fighting over the last bits of it! But we both agreed (begrudgingly) that we overdid it, and we should probably give all things buffalo-sauced a rest for awhile. So, having a few blocks of cream cheese in the fridge, and no plans for them, I turned to the internets, and opted to make some No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes.

No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes

Sugar, cream cheese, and mini chocolate chips combine for a sweet no-bake dessert. Normally, I’m a purist when it comes to my cheesecakes, but I had some mini chocolate chips that I decided to toss in, just for something a little different. That, and I had chocolate graham crackers that I used for the base, and I wanted additional chocolate, without making chocolate cheesecake (if that makes any sense).

I didn’t realize just how rich these would end up being! Like, sugar-stomachache, teeth-hurting rich. In hindsight, maybe I should’ve made them smaller.

It didn’t stop us from devouring them, though!
