There’s probably no dessert I love more than a no bake cheesecake, and this white chocolate raspberry version is right up there at the top!

I know there are some people who don’t like white chocolate, but honestly? You won’t find there are many desserts I turn down. I will take them all — except pumpkin. Call me crazy!

If you’re one of those people who aren’t into white chocolate, try one of my other no bake cheesecake recipes:

Before I made this cheesecake recipe, I was actually really hoping to make a strawberry version (and there’s a pretty good chance that one will make an appearance, too!), but I couldn’t find any strawberries.

Not one fresh strawberry. Anywhere.

I searched for two weeks. Two weeks!??

I tried 6 different grocery stores.

And you know what? After going through all of that with 3 kids under 6 in tow, the raspberries started to look pretty good. Amazing, in fact.

Even so, it’s not like this is a stretch for me. I love all kinds of chocolate, and all kinds of berries, and this luscious, creamy, white chocolatey cheesecake is welcome on my dessert table any day of the week.

And then this cheesecake was born, and I am so, so glad that I went this route instead, because it’s a stunner and it is crazy, insanely delicious to boot. It’s the perfect dessert for any special occasion, any time of year.

How to Make this White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake recipe:

  • Choose good quality chocolate — because you will taste it! White chocolate chips are fine, or any white chocolate baking bar.
  • You can use homemade or store-bought raspberry sauce or jam to make your swirls — feel free to take a shortcut if you need it, because no one will ever know!
  • Full fat cream cheese is recommended, because it has less moisture and will hold up better in a no bake cheesecake. Philadelphia is better than store brand.
  • Give yourself enough time. Cheesecakes take a long time to set up and chill completely, and you don’t want to serve before it’s ready! Make sure you have at least 8 hours for the cheesecake to chill before serving, or make it a day in advance.

Ingredients

Raspberry Sauce

  • 2 1/2 cups frozen raspberries thawed
  • 1/2 cup sugar 100g
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch

Graham Cracker Crust

  • 2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs or chocolate baking crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter melted

FIlling

  • 1 cup white chocolate chips 170g
  • ½ cup heavy cream 35%, divided
  • 24 oz full fat cream cheese 3 packages (room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar (reduce to 1 cup for a less sweet cheesecake)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries

Instructions

Raspberry Sauce

  • In a small pot, add the raspberries and sugar. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook for 2-3 minutes. Mash with a spatula. 
  • Combine water and corn starch and stir into sauce to thicken. Set aside to cool completely (you can speed this up by pouring into a new bowl and placing in the fridge).

Crust

  • OPTIONAL: Clamp a piece of parchment paper in between the bottom and the outer ring of a 9″ Springform pan. This helps with easy removal.
  • In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Press into the bottom and 1″ up the sides of a 9-10″ springform pan. Set aside.

Filling

  • In a medium bowl, stir together white chocolate and ¼ cup cream. Microwave on high for 40 seconds, then stir until completely smooth (heat another 15 seconds if necessary). Place in the fridge to cool to room temperature.
  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Add sugar, vanilla, and remaining ¼ cup cream and beat on high until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes.
  • Add cooled melted white chocolate and beat on medium speed until incorporated. 
  • Place fresh raspberries into the bottom of the crust and pour the cheesecake filling over top, smoothing with a spatula.
  • Drop teaspoonfuls of raspberry sauce on the top, and gently swirl. Save remaining sauce for serving.
  • Chill at least 8 hours or overnight before serving. Serve with remaining raspberry sauce and fresh raspberries as desired.

Notes

I use frozen raspberries for this recipe, but fresh will work just as well!

      Hi Angelica! You probably could, it’s just not something I’ve tested out so I can’t say for sure. If you decide to experiment, let me know how it goes!

    This recipe did not work for me at all. I followed the instructions exactly and the end result was a cheesecake that would not set despite being in the fridge for over 12 hours. The texture was not anything resembling cheesecake and turned into a pile of slop on the plate once cut. The flavor was not good either and tasted like I was biting into a block of softened cream cheese sprinkled with sugar. The raspberries made the cheesecake very wet contributing to it falling apart. It was completely unpalatable and all of my conpany agreed this recipe is a fluke.

      I am so sorry this didn’t turn out for you! Honestly, with 3 packages of cream cheese, 1 cup of melted chocolate, 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, and only 1 cup of heavy cream, whipped until thick, there’s no way it should be soft and I don’t believe there are errors with the recipe. You can see there are more reviews where it turned out perfectly, than reviews where there were issues with it setting. I’ve tested this recipe lots of times and I know for a fact that if I made it today, it would turn out just as the picture and the video show.

    Hi Ashley! This recipe looks fabulous and I’m going to make it for company this weekend. Would adding gelatin help make it firmer and easier to slice? I’ve had no-bake cheesecakes fall apart in the past, so I’m wondering if adding some gelatin dissolved in water would be okay. Thank you!

    Hi,

    I have made this recipe before and it is delicious.
    However, my mum likes a baked cheesecake and she has requested a baked raspberry and white chocolate cake for her birthday.
    Would it be possible to bake this cake? I was reading extensively and i should be able to make this cake at 160 degrees celsius for 45 min and it should be fine. Would you recommend any recipe change o be able to bake this cake?
