I’m hosting turkey dinner tomorrow. Usually that is no biggie, right?! Except this year, I have bought myself a whole wack load of restrictions. One of them being that I am only able to stand for 20 minutes at a time before my sciatica flares and becomes a pain that is too excruciating to tolerate.

All that aside, I can proudly say I managed to prepare several dishes that I am planning to serve alongside our turkey dinner tomorrow, including brown sugar turnip casserole, brussel sprout and sweet potato gratin, no-bake white chocolate raspberry cheesecake bites and classic apple pie. Most of which I prepared while sitting at the kitchen table.

But – let me tell you – my favourite of the bunch to prepare was the cheesecake bites. There is nothing easier to prepare than a no-bake cheesecake. If you have never had one, you seriously must make a point to try one. I love the creaminess of no-bake cheesecakes. They always just melt in your mouth. That is no different for my no-bake white chocolate raspberry cheesecake bites!

If you are heading to a holiday gathering in the coming days or week, I highly recommend bringing a batch of these sweet treats. You will thank me later!

No-Bake Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Bites Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 (250g) package of Philadelphia Cream (Plain) Cheese
  • 1/2 of 225g package of white chocolate chips
  • 1 (200g) bag sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1.5 cups fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup cool whip (thawed)
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a bowl, soften cream cheese and mix with sugar.
  2. In a small bowl, place chocolate chips and microwave for 20 seconds. Stir until chocolate has melted and add to cream cheese bowl. Stir.
  3. Add vanilla extract and cool whip to cream cheese mixture. Mix well.
  4. Stir in raspberries.
  5. Place in freezer for two hours.
  6. Pour coconut shreds in to bowl and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Using a tablespoon, scoop cheesecake and roll into ball. Roll ball in coconut until evenly coated and place on lined baking sheet.
  8. You should end up with 30 to 34 cheesecake bites.
  9. Return to freezer for 2 hours before serving.

* If you plan to eat the bites in moderation, I suggest leaving the bites in the freezer and grabbing one as you fancy so they retain their firmness. Just be sure once frozen to store them in a air tight container within the freezer with parchment paper separating layers, if need be.
