My travels to the States are my inspiration and I am in my happy place when I’m eating s’mores, drinking cereal milk and concocting calorie-laden desserts. Today I’m sharing one of my new favorite no-bake recipes with you – a truly decadent Raspberry Chocolate Cheesecake.

Perhaps this easy dessert could make an appearance on your Valentine’s Day table this year?
Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake
Over here in Australia, it is summer and it is HOT. Which is why I love to make no-bake sweets that taste amazing without even having to use the oven. And this Raspberry Chocolate Cheesecake is no exception.
The creamy and rich chocolate cheesecake filling blends beautifully with the tart, fresh raspberries and the thick chocolate Oreo crust just sends it over the top. Your friends and family will be begging for seconds!
Valentine’s Day in Australia isn’t that big of a deal but I have been in America twice on Valentine’s Day and I KNOW it is over there. Those chocolate displays in Target are really something else.
This time last year we were actually just arriving home after a big trip across America #memories. Whether you are sharing this dessert with a loved one, friends, family or no one at all, I just know you will enjoy it. Beware though, it’s hard to stop at just one piece!

Is No Bake Cheesecake better than baked cheesecake?
Baked cheesecake is dense and more like custard. No-bake cheesecake is lighter and fluffy – think mousse.
Is one better than the other? I think it’s more about personal preference!
Does No Bake Cheesecake need to be refrigerated?
Yes, you will need to refrigerate this cheesecake! Also be sure and wrap it well in plastic. It will keep better and be fresher when well sealed and refrigerated for up to five days.
Can you freeze Cheesecake?
Yes, just wrap it well and tuck it into the freezer! Then when you need a sweet treat, grab a slice and enjoy!
No Bake Cheesecake
I also love that this easy No Bake Cheesecake can be changed up with your flavor preferences.
You can totally top this with strawberries if those are more you thing or even some shaved chocolate and leave the fruit off!
Another great idea would be crushed Andes mints sprinkled on top for a mint twist!

- Lightly grease a springform baking tin with butter and set aside.
- Add your Oreo cookies to a food processor and blend until they resemble fine crumbs.
