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.

Calories 520cal


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


  • 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


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).


  • 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.


  • 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.


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

    Made this Saturday night, to have for Valentine’s day.
    Was absolutely fantastic! Will make again for sure. Since we can’t have people over due to the pandemic, I delivered a few pieces to each of my girls homes and to one of my sisters home, we all live in the same neighborhood.
    Rave reviews!! Wish I could show pictures, looked beautiful too

  2. Vivian says

    The cheesecake looks and sounds delicious! I’m hoping it is a light, creamy filling, not dense like the New York Cheesecake?

  3. Al says

    Would dark chocolate work as well as I don’t really like white chocolate? presumablt the amount would remain the same? Thanks

  4. Melinda Adams says

    very delicious !!!!!! omg fabuulous….although i added a handful of whole white chip into the batter and drizzle of white chocolate on top it was sooooooooooooooo good

  5. Carole says

    This is a fantastic cheesecake recipe. Everyone loved it no issues with the recipe. I wish I could share the photo of the final product

  6. Bonnie propst says

    I made it and it turned out great. Your list of ingredients said full fat cream cheese. So that is what I used, not 1/2 low and1/2 full set up great and was easy to cut and hold it’s shape and wasn’t like pudding…..yummy…thanks…

  7. Meggan Bennett says

    I wanted to add my two cents to this recipe because, I too am a rebel. It seems I can’t ever just make a recipe. I am always changing things as I go. I did that here. I did a few little tweaks, all of which were based on personal preferences, and not at all because it was bad. 😉 I added 1/3 cup of sugar to my crust and I baked it on 350 for 10 minutes and cooled completely. I much prefer a sweeter crust and I find they hold together much better when cutting and eating if they’ve been baked. I used 4 cups of raspberries with 1 cup of sugar and thickened with 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup corn starch. I used 4 cups of raspberries because that is what I had in the two bags of frozen berries I bought. Fresh raspberries in Idaho right now are super expensive and not great. I used two 4oz bars of white chocolate, Baker’s brand, broken into pieces. That is what I had on hand. After pouring a half cup of cream on it I had 3/4 cup of cream left so I whipped that for the filling. Again, just using what I had. I did not add any raspberries to the bottom of the pan, as I didn’t have any. I just added the sauce to the top and threw it in the fridge. I haven’t tried it yet, but the taste I snuck of the filling was delicious!

  8. Dawn says

    Thank you for the recipe! Should the cream cheese be softened before whipping or do you whip it straight out of the fridge?

  9. Nicole says

    Tried this beautiful recipe however next time i’ll use an electric whisk, is it fine to chill the cheesecake for 2 hours only

  10. Elaine says

    I made this for the family and it didn’t last long: it was slightly softer than expected but sliced well and held its own. I imagine it was soft because I didn’t whisk the cream enough by hand. I have now purchased an electric hand whisk so I imagine the next time will be even better. The most important thing was the taste and it was absolutely delicious and complimented from all generations. I will most definitely be making this again and again… coming from two people who don’t even like cheesecake we are now converted. Yummy!!!

  11. Christina Goding says

    Could frozen raspberries (thawed) be used in place of fresh ones on the bottom or is it necessary to have fresh ones?

  12. Jenn says

    OHMYGOODNESS!!!! Have made with both the regular Graham cracker crust, and with a chocolate crust……turned out UH-MAZING!!!!

  13. Ollie says

    I followed the recipe & video step-by-step, and sadly it was a disaster 🙁 way too soft, had to eat it with a spoon (didn’t hold its shape at all). I thought the chocolate and heavy cream would help it set (I left it overnight), but it does need gelatine. Or perhaps whipping up the cream separately and then gently folding it in could have saved the day, but I just beat it up with the cream cheese as per the instructions. Please add a disclaimer to the recipe (re gelatine or agar agar or something), as reading the reviews now it seems quite a few people had this issue. It looked so good I skipped reading reviews. It did overall taste pretty good and smooth, white chocolate and raspberries are a fabulous match so I would just tweak the recipe and gladly try again next time (would add way less sugar though, it was overly sweet for me and those who tried it, but that’s just personal preferences I guess). I used high quality Belgian chocolate, half light half regular fat Philadelphia cream cheese, 35% heavy cream and beat it all on high, so that definitely wasn’t the issue. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Hi Ollie! 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.

      • Christy says

        Hello Ashley! I’m getting ready to make this recipe. Sounds amazing so I have to. But reading through comments and this caught my attention. The user mentions she used half fat cream cheese which you clearly said not to so I got that part. Your reply though mentions 1 cup of heavy cream but the recipe list indicates 1/2 cup. That’s quite a difference. Would you mind clarifying?

      • Ashley Fehr says

        Hi Christy! I retested the recipe and found that reduced cream helped the users who were having trouble getting the cheesecake to set. Since I’ve updated, I have had some who still use the full amount and see success, but a 1/2 cup will ensure that the cheesecake sets up firmly.

    • Jose says

      Hello ashley can use a unflavored gelatin to help the pie stay firm when I cut a piece I made pie previously similar and it fell apart soggy like eating pudding 🤷‍♂️

      • Ashley Fehr says

        You always could, yes. I’ve never had that problem with this recipe. Between the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and chocolate, there’s really no reason for it to be soggy.

    • Connie says

      I made this a couple of months ago, following recipe, no changes. I did use the chocolate crumbs. It was perfect, set up nicely after about four hours. My granddaughter loved it (she loves white chocolate) and has asked for it for her birthday this Sunday (she’ll be 11)!

  14. Jpar says

    Can this be frozen? I want to make it ahead and store in freezer until an event.. my sister told me about this recipe…says its amazing!!

  15. Billiejo says

    I have not yet tried it but I was wondering I’m not crazy for white chocolate so can I just skip that part ? Thanks

  16. Valerie Bundy says

    Hi Ashley, this cheesecake looks HEAVENLY! I’m going to make it for a gathering this summer. Do you think I could substitute mascarpone or ricotta or a combination of both for all or part of the cream cheese portion?
