  • 8 Tablespoons butter


  • 2 cups white chocolate chips

  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

No Bake Vanilla Cheesecake


  • Add the chocolate chips to a medium bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and add 3 tablespoons of heavy cream, saving the other 3 for later. Continue to heat for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until smooth and melted. Set aside and let it come back up to room temperature.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Watch it carefully as it will soon start to bubble and ‘fizz'. This is when the butter starts to caramelize and sweeten. Whisk it for 2 minutes as it caramelizes and then remove it from the heat.
  • In a large bowl, combine the browned butter and graham cracker crumbs until it has a wet, sandy consistency. Add it to a 9-inch pie plate. Press it on the bottom and the sides of the pie plate until it's firmly in place. (It will happen, just keep pressing.)
  • In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to whip the (room temperature) cream cheese.
  • Once whipped and fluffy, add the powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Add the vanilla extract and remaining 3 tablespoons of heavy cream. Beat until smooth. Combine with chocolate chips mixture.
  • Add the filling to the top of the crust and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Slice, and serve with your favorite fruits, sauces, or whipped cream!


The Secret to a Super Smooth Cheesecake

  • Let the cream cheese sit at room temperature for at least an hour before beginning. You don’t want it to be at all cold.
  • Beat the cream cheese separately from the other ingredients until it’s smooth and whipped.
  • In this recipe, allow the melted chocolate to come back up to room temperature or it will mess with the consistency.
