No-bake cheesecake recipes and no-bake treats are one of those easy dessert recipes that have only a handful of ingredients.

You want to avoid the following mistakes when it comes to making no-bake cheesecake, that way you can ensure your no-bake treat will turn out perfect every time. Baking the crust. No-bake cheesecake means that you do not have to bake the dessert recipe. Trying to bake a graham cracker crust for a no-bake treat will make for a soggy crust, and you want to try and avoid this. Trying to use a baked crust even a crust with less butter means that your filling will ooze out into the crust and make it soggy. Instead, you should make sure to chill the graham cracker crust for at least for ten minutes before filling it, but even longer is better. If you are familiar with graham crumb crusts, you'll notice that many no-bake treat versions have more butter than graham cracker crumbs. This makes for a crust that is sturdy when refrigerated. Another mistake that is often made with no-bake treats is mixing the filling for longer than the dessert recipe says. Instead, you want to make sure that you use room-temperature cream cheese and use a hand mixer or mix the filling by hand to avoid breaking the emulsion of the filling that is created by the cream cheese.

Using cold cream cheese. Your cream cheese is an ingredient that needs to be room temperature before mixing. Trying to whip cream cheese that is cold into the filling will result in little lumps, that will throw off this no-bake treat. Instead, make sure to bring out the cream cheese out of the refrigerator at least an hour before mixing the filling. Unwrap the cream cheese and then cut it into cubes if you are in a hurry to get the cake in the fridge. Rushing the chilling time of the no-bake treat. The filling for a no-bake cheesecake needs to be properly chilled, which means a minimum of four hours but preferably overnight. Properly chilling the no-bake cheesecake will ensure success.

You can move the cheesecake recipe to the fridge for 30 minutes before slicing, but freezing the cheesecake any longer will make for a frozen cheesecake without the same creamy texture as the just-refrigerated version. By following these simple tips for making no bake cheesecake, your dessert recipe will work out everytime, and you will want to make it again and again.
