No-bake chocolate chip cannoli cheesecake

Because our cheesecake filling is already incredibly soft and fluffy, it will make the perfect filling for cannoli. There are two ways you can use this cheesecake for cannoli.

First, you can make the filling, fold in some crust crumbs, then pipe the mixture directly into the cannoli. Leave it to set for a couple of hours.

The second is allowing the cheesecake to set in the springform cake pan. Then, whisk the crust and filling together. It will be thick and creamy. Fill the cannoli shells and leave them to chill again. This method is great for offcut cheesecake pieces.

What You Need To Make This Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Recipe No-Bake Edition

Ingredients for the Oreo crust

  • 24 Oreo cookies (2 cups crushed)
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter, melted and cooled

Ingredients for the no-bake choc chip filling

  • 24 ounces full-fat cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • Chocolate drizzle, for garnish

Equipment

  • 10-inch springform cake pan
  • Non-stick baking paper
  • Non-stick cooking spray (or additional melted butter)
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Food processor, optional
  • Mixing bowls
  • Electric or hand mixer
  • Rubber or silicone spatula
  • Plastic or saran wrap
 

Step by step instructions

Step 1: Make the Oreo crust

To start, line a springform cake pan with non-stick baking paper. Then, brush the sides with melted butter or spray it with non-stick cooking spray. Set the pan aside.

Combine the crushed Oreo biscuits and melted butter in a food processor. Work the cookies until you have a uniform, fine, wet crumb.

Press the crumbs inside your lined cake pan. Make sure you press them in tightly so that they are compact. If you don’t, the cheesecake slices will fall apart.

Place the crust-lined pan inside the fridge to rest.

Step 2: Make the no-bake chocolate chip cheesecake filling

Add the softened cream cheese to a large mixing bowl. Add the granulated sugar too. Start beating together the ingredients until they become fluffy and soft. This shouldn’t take longer than 3-4 minutes. Whisk in the vanilla extract. Set the cream cheese aside.

Next, whip the heavy cream until it reaches stiff peaks.

Fold in a third of the whipped cream roughly. Then, more gently this time, fold in another third of the whipped cream. Finally, add the remaining whipped cream and fold it in completely.

When the final addition is almost fully incorporated, add the chocolate chips and fold them in with the cream.

Step 3: Set the choc chip cheesecake

Gently add the whipped cheesecake filling onto the Oreo crust. Make sure that it is completely level. Don’t tap the cake pan (it will deflate your cheesecake).

Wrap the entire cake pan in plastic or saran wrap. Place it inside the fridge and leave it to set for 6-8 hours, but preferably overnight.

Before serving, remember to drizzle over some melted chocolate or chocolate sauce.

Expert Tips And Tricks

  • To make a denser cheesecake, simply whisk in the heavy cream. You don’t have to whip it or fold it in. This will make it easier to work with if you are using this no-bake chocolate chip cheesecake for other treats.
  • Depending on how you want to use this no-bake choc chip cheesecake recipe, you don’t necessarily have to make the crust. if you are making whole cheesecake, mini cheesecakes, or cheesecake bars, definitely still make the crust. It will help add texture.
  • If you plan on making cheesecake cake pops, the crust can be broken into the cake pop mixture to help add texture. You can also cut the cheesecake into mini squares and make square cake pops.
  • Do not work with this cheesecake before it has set completely. The outside will set before the inside does. So, a big mistake people make is testing the outside and think it’s done. Once they cut into it, the center is still soft and runny. Leave the cheesecake to set for as long as it takes.
  • To remove the cheesecake from the springform cake pan, you will need an offset palette knife and a sharp, thin-blade knife. Slightly heat the blade of the thin knife. Slide it around the sides of the cheesecake pan. This will “melt” the cheesecake away from the sides. Unclasp the cake pan and remove the edges. Use a palette knife or two to lift the cheesecake off the base. You can even ask someone to help you.
