These mouth watering Chocolate Raspberry No bake cheesecake bars are super easy to create. The hardest part is simply waiting for each layer to harden up.
It doesn’t take a lot of kitchen utensils either! You will simply need:
- A mixing bowl,
- A hand mixer or stand mixer.
- A Mold. I used the Spring Bark Mold that was a gift from Sweet Creations by Good Cook. You can use any mold you like to make these fit any holiday.
- A Rubber spatula.

As I said earlier, the hardest part is simply waiting for the different layers to set up.
First, you melt your chocolate and spread a layer into the spring mold. Cool in fridge until the chocolate has hardened.
Add a thin layer of raspberry filling and allow to cool in the fridge while you mix up the cheesecake filling.
Add the layer of cheesecake filling and chill for at least 20 minutes to begin to form. You can let it chill longer, an hour is even still great.
Sprinkle with the Graham cracker crust and pat into place.
Add the final layer of chocolate to the top. And chill in the fridge for 12 hours to allow it to fully set.
Then you can remove from the mold, cut into squares and share!
The no bake cheesecake bars only uses about half of the cheesecake filling you make. So either get two Spring Bark molds and make two at once, or you can use the leftover cheesecake filling into a delicious no bake cheesecake with the leftover raspberry topping!
I should warn you. These are mighty rich in flavor. They are absolutely lip smacking, finger licking delicious! So they make an amazingly decadent dessert that you should share!
With Easter upon us; this is the perfect time to share some Spring cheer by making some of these up and taking a few squares to a close friend or neighbor!
We took some of ours to my in-laws. They always do so much for us. Help with the kids when I need. And are just amazing people. So we shared these delicious no bake cheesecake bars with them, and they were a huge hit.
