How to Make Our Cheesecake Bites Recipe

Cheesecake Balls are easy to prep and require no baking. They do require a chill time of two hours, so I like to prep them ahead and while they are chilling run errands or do things around the house! Then, finishing them off only takes about 10 minutes.

Beat the cream cheese until it’s completely smooth.

Sprinkle dry cake mix over cream cheese and mix. Tightly cover the mixture and let it chill for at least 2 hours. Scoop the cheesecake dough using ice cream scoop.
Pro-Tip: Before adding the cake mix, it is important to heat treat the dry cake mix. Pour the dry cake mix into a medium size heat safe bowl. Microwave the cake mix in two 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval. Allow the cake mix to completely cool before mixing into the cream cheese.

Place bites back on the baking sheet and cover in sprinkles.
Pro-Tip: You can allow the uncoated cheesecake bites to sit overnight in the refrigerator before coating. The cake mix will expand, and if you coat the bites too soon the almond bark may crack. You can also roll the uncoated cheesecake bites in powdered sugar, cake mix or sprinkles.

Variations / Options / Add-ins

  • CAKE MIX: You can use any cake mix in place of the funfetti. You can even use brownie mix if you want to make a rich, chocolate cheesecake bite!
  • CREAM CHEESE: You can use a low fat cream cheese option for this recipe. Make sure that the cream cheese is completely softened before using it in your recipe.
  • ALMOND BARK: You could also use milk or dark chocolate almond bark for this recipe! You could even use a mixture of almond bark flavors and cover half in white chocolate and half in milk chocolate to have a variety!
  • SPRINKLES: You can top with whatever type of sprinkles you like. It’s fun to switch them up based on the occasion. I love to use pastels for a baby shower, Easter, or holiday-themed sprinkles.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Store No Bake Cheesecake Bites

Keep any leftover cheesecake bites covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.  You can freeze the uncoated cheesecake balls for 2 months. Allow the bites to thaw, and coat and sprinkle before serving.

Why do I have to heat treat dry cake mix?

Flour in uncooked batter can cause sickness. It can carry bacteria. So, a quick heat treatment is needed to ensure that those germs are killed off. It’s super easy to do this by placing it in the microwave or oven for 1-2 minutes!

How do I evenly coat cheesecake bites in almond bark?

Place the coated cheesecake bites on the fork and gently tap any excess coating off. You can also use the spoon to pour the almond bark over any bare spots on the cheesecake bites.

  1. Why do you have to heat the cake mix? I didn’t do that. Can I still eat them? I wasn’t planning on coating them in chocolate, just rolling in sprinkles.

    1. When making a no-bake dessert, we need to bake the cake mix in order to kill any potential bacteria that could cause food poisoning.
