Mini-no bake brownie cheesecake

No-bake brownie batter cheesecake recipe

Inspired by totally love it

Yields 4-6 mini cheesecakes


For the crusts

  • 1 cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (sweetened or unsweetened)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

For the cheesecake filling

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups box brownie mix (the powder mix)
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla almond milk (you may also substitute soy or regular milk)
  • Chocolate chips, whipped cream for garnish (optional)


  1. In a mixing bowl add all of the crust ingredients and mix well.
  2. Depending on the size dish you use, divide the crust evenly between four to six dessert dishes or glasses and press the crust firmly into the bottom and up the sides of each dish.
  3. In a separate bowl, add the whipping cream, vanilla and powdered sugar. Mix very well with an electric mixer until stiff peaks begin to form. Set half of the mixture to the side.
  4. To the remaining whipped cream mixture add the softened cream cheese, almond milk and the brownie mix and blend until everything is nice and smooth with no lumps.
  5. Spoon the brownie batter mixture into each of the dessert dishes. Top with the whipped cream and, if you like, a few chocolate chips.

If I made these ahead of time they would be gone and I'd have to make them again.

Angie - you can DEFINATLEY make these a head of time I would just suggest holding off on the whipped until you are ready to serve them as it may run and not look as nice :)

Anything no-bake is a must try! Especially in the summertime! I totally agree with the mini sizes being built-in portion control, that totally gives me the motivation to not feel guilty and give these a try!

These look GREAT! And no being anywhere near a hot oven is such a plus right now :) Mini sizes are great for parties & potlucks, the built-in portion control makes them practically guilt-free. Awesome recipe, thank you for posting it!
