Summer is slowly coming to and end. But compared to the rest of our little suburb we start school pretty late. So I didn’t want the summer to go by without cooking up a few no bake desserts for the kids! I don’t know about you but it seems like all my kids want to do is eat during the summer. Maybe we a have a couple of blooming sprouts or maybe it’s just out of pure bordem. Either way I always need to be ready for a couple of treats for them!
I mean anything dark chocolate just HITS the spot so, today I’ll be sharing some cheesecake candy bars made of vanilla wafers ( not the cookie) cheesecake and melted dark chocolate morsels.

To start, mix your very favorite no bake cheesecake recipe. I used a box mix BUT my mom makes THE best no bake cheesecake ever in life and I’m sure that would have worked just as well. As always I was a little pressed for time this particular day so I just used what I had. Let the cheesecake sit for an hour or more in the fridge until firm and easy to spread.
Next, line up the wafers on your grid and line parchment paper under it so you can catch and messes or drips.
Then fill up a pastry bag with about half of the cheesecake mixture. Snip the end of the bag so it’s about the same width of the wafer. Then pipe the cheesecake onto the wafers. It should just about cover the wafer on top.Then place them in the freezer until firm. (about 15-20 minutes)
While those are freezing, take your dark chocolate morsels and place them into a microwave safe bowl for melting.
How to Melt Chocolate Chips| Just Destiny Mag
Place chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl.
Set microwave to 50 power and set the time to 1 minute. Check on the chips every 15 seconds until melted. (Remember chocolate chips keep form even when melted, so don’t just eye it! Stir to see if it is melted.)
Remove the chocolate and stir with a DRY rubber spatula until everything is melted.
Remove the bars from the freezer and place on top of the parchment paper for any drips.
Next, take another piping bag and fill it up with the melted chocolate. Then snip a small hole at the bottom of the bag, [warning]BE READY FOR FLOW RIGHT WAY[/warning]!! Then flow over each bar. You can completely cover them or do a partial cover like I did.
Take the prepared no bake cheesecake and chill it for one hour.
Place the wafers onto the cooling sheet.
Place the chilled and prepared cheese cake into a pastry bag and snip the bottom. It should be as wide as the width of the wafer.
Pipe a small amount of cheesecake onto each bar. ( See photo above)
Place the bars into the freezer for 15-20 minutes or until firm.
Melt the chocolate
Remove the bars from the freezer.
Place the melted chocolate into a pastry bag. Snip the bag to allow for flow onto the bars. BE PREPARED FOR FLOW RIGHT AWAY!
Flow the chocolate over each bar. Cover completely or partial.
Place in fridge or freezer until chocolate is harden.
Melting the Chocolate
Place the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl.
Set the microwave to 50 percent power and melt the chocolate for 1 minute while checking on the chocolate every 10-15 seconds.
