Helpful Tips to make No Bake Peppermint Cheesecake Bars:

  • Make sure you use room temperature cream cheese and on the opposite, very cold heavy whipping cream.
  • The hot water should be very hot, boiling water, this will help melt the peppermint candies quicker.
  • The bars must be served chilled and must be stored in the refrigerator.
  • You can make the recipe in a springform pan, for a round cheesecake or make it as a trifle, served in individual glasses.
  • Top with whipped cream right before serving, as the whipped cream hardens in the refrigerator.

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Ingredients
 

Crust

  • 3 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted

Cheesecake

  • 15 Peppermint hard candies, crushed
  • 1/2 cup hot boiling water
  • 14 grams unflavored gelatin, 2 – 7 gram packets
  • 24 ounces full fat cream cheese, 3 – 8 ounce packages, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, cold

Garnish

  • 10 Peppermint hard candies, crushed
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the Crust: Add all the ingredients to a large bowl, mix with a fork until well combined and press into a lightly greased 9×13 inch pan.
  • Prepare the Cheesecake: Add peppermints to a large Ziploc bag. Seal the bag well, but do not make the bag air tight, or the bag will perforate on the first smash. To avoid a mess, place the bag inside another Ziplock bag.Place the bag on a wooden cutting board and using a kitchen mallet, crush the candies.
  • Add the crushed candies to a medium bowl and pour hot, boiling water over them. Using a spoon, stir the mixture for 3-5 minutes, until the candies completely melt.
  • Sprinkle the two packets of gelatin over the peppermint mixture, let it bloom for 1 minute and whisk it until fully combined. Set aside.
  • Add room temperature cream cheese and sugar to a large bowl and using a hand mixer (you can also you a stand mixer for this), whisk it on medium-high speed until creamy and fully combined. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl a few times.
  • Add the gelatin mixture to the cream cheese, mix it in with the electric mixer starting on low speed and increasing it to high. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl a few times.
  • Add cold heavy whipping cream to a preferably chilled, cold bowl and beat it on medium-high speed until soft peaks form and the whipped cream holds its shape, about 1-2 minutes. Fold whipped cream into the cheesecake mixture and stir well to combine.
  • Add the cheesecake mixture to the pan, level the top with a spatula. Chill for at least 3 hours, better 5-8 hours.
  • Garnish: When ready to serve, add cold heavy whipping cream and sugar to a preferably chilled, cold bowl and whisk it on medium-high speed until soft peaks form and the whipped cream holds its shape, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Garnish each peppermint cheesecake bar with whipped cream and top with crushed peppermints.
  • Enjoy!
