Easy No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake


1- 9 inch chocolate pie crust
2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup powered sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup melted semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mini-chocolate chips for garnish


This is another VERY simple recipe.

1. Make sure that the cream cheese is softened.

2. In a Large bowl cream together the softened cream cheese, all three sugars, milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon.  Make sure it is mixed together good.  I cream them together for about 2 minutes.

3.  Add in melted chocolate and cream together for an additional 2 minutes.

4.  Pour into pie plate and garnish with chocolate chips.

5.  Chill in refrigerator for at least 3 hours.  Five hours is really better.  But three is okay if you just can’t wait!


Chocolate Banoffee Mini-Pies

So easy to make and very sweet!


For the crust:
1 cup crushed Oreo Cookies (with middles removed)
4 tablespoons butter, melted

For The Creamy filling:
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1-14 oz can sweetened condensed Milk
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips, melted

Banana’s, cut into slices
whipped cream
Caramel for drizzling


1. In a food processor crush up Oreo’s.  If you don’t have a food processor you can put the cookies in a ziplock bag and pound it with a mallet or rolling-pin.  Combine 4 tablespoons of melted butter and mix together.

2.  Fill silicone or a cupcake pan lined with cupcake liners with a crust for the pies.  Packing it on the sides as well.  Set in fridge and let firm up.

2.  Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a pan on low heat.  Add brown sugar and stir until smooth.

3.  Mix in the Sweetened Condensed Milk.  And continue stirring on low for approx. 5 minutes.

4.  Melt chocolate chips in microwave.  Checking on it every 15 to 20 seconds.

5.  Mix melted chocolate into the sweetened condensed mixture.

6. Pour into cupcake liners/silicone liners.  And return to fridge for a least 2 hours.  I like to let mine set overnight.

7.  Top with Sliced Bananas, whipping cream, Caramel,  Cherries, you could lightly sprinkle coco powder of the tops.
