Chocolate Cheesecake Bites is an easy no-bake treat made from cream cheese, chocolate pudding and mini chocolate chips rolled in cocoa powder.
Cheesecake is delicious, and there’s so many different kinds of it. If you’re a huge fan of Chocolate Cheesecake, Chocolate Chip Cheesecake or New York Cheesecake, but want something fun and bite sized for date night or Valentine’s Day, this is a recipe you definitely need to try. No ovens, baking dishes or stand mixers necessary.
If you love cheesecake, then you should definitely make Chocolate Cheesecake Bites. They are incredibly easy no-bake treats that are great for parties or for a romantic evening in. Chocolate Cheesecake Bites are so easy to make that there’s really only 3 steps: mix everything together, refrigerate the cream cheese mixture, then roll it into balls. Any additional steps are based on your particular tastes, and if you love chocolate then this is the type of mini cheesecake bite you’ll love the most.
No-bake cheesecake bites are made to be served chilled, but for an even crisper, frostier flavor you can put them in the freezer and eat them straight out of it. They will be firmer frozen than they will be if you refrigerate them though, so be careful when you take a huge bite out of one.

VARIATIONS ON CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE BITES
- Add-ins: Mash up some oreos, brownie chunks, caramel or even graham cracker crumbs and roll your Chocolate Cheesecake Bites in for a bolder, richer flavor that you can customize to your own personal tastes.
- Chocolate chips: If you aren’t a huge pan of semisweet chocolate, you can use dark chocolate, white chocolate or peanut butter chips. You can even put your chips into a microwave safe bowl, heat them up and dip the Chocolate Cheesecake Bites into the melted chocolate.
The French call finger foods “canapés,” which literally means “sofa.” They coined this term because they would make little appetizers that would sit on top of slices of bread like a person sitting on a couch. Bite-sized foods have been the ultimate party food since somewhere around the 18th century, although little morsels of food have been enjoyed by the rich and elite since much earlier.

HOW LONG ARE CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE BITES GOOD?
- Serve: Chocolate Cheesecake Bites are best served chilled, and you don’t want to leave them at room temperature for very long or they’ll start getting mushy and fall apart.
- Store: Set your Chocolate Cheesecake Bites on a sheet of parchment paper and refrigerate them. They’ll be good for up to 5 days before they go bad. A bit of a tip here, you can line a baking pan with parchment paper and put your leftover Chocolate Cheesecake Bites on it. This way you can slide the whole thing onto a fridge shelf and pull them out to munch on without them getting squished. If you are even more worried about them being squished you can use a cupcake or muffin pan.
- Freeze: You can freeze Chocolate Cheesecake Bites for up to 6 months before you should throw them out. I would recommend eating them sooner rather than later for the best flavor.
