Good Morning readers!

Today I am sharing a really simple recipe for a “no bake” salted caramel cheesecake. I promise this is SOOO good you will hate me forever!!   Like most of the desserts I make it’s a cheats recipe. By cheat I mean it tastes super good but is quick and simple.

The salted Caramel Cheesecake can be two or three layers. In it’s simplest form, with just two layers of deliciousness it takes 5 minutes to make. If you would like something a little more elaborate you can spend some extra time making a praline topping, or adding a  layer of salted caramel sauce to the top.

Do you think salted caramel cheesecake is “man food?”  By “man food” I mean something for hubby to bring along to a poker night.

I was initially making the salted caramel cheesecake for our dessert.  I had began pressing the ginger-nut cookie base into glasses for individual serves when I realised Mr GG was going to his first ever poker night. I had made 6 dessert glasses with cheesecake base in the bottom and plenty more base left.

Instead of continuing to make the other 6 glasses I decided to make a dessert for Mr GG to take along to the poker game.

In the cupboard I had some plastic wine taster glasses. I’m not sure where the plastic glasses came from but I knew they would be perfect for the dessert. After all, I wasn’t trusting the boys with glass! If that sounds a little rough, believe me its not. I saw the same group after an evening fishing expedition and I’m amazed they got home in one piece. The fish were very safe that night.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

1 glass

Salted Caramel Cheesecake -No Bake

Ingredients

    Base
  • 250 gm Gingernut Cookies
  • 100gm salted butter melted
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Filling
  • 350gm Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 380gm "Nestles" Caramel Top & Fill
  • 1 Tbs lemon juice
  • Salted Caramel Layer
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup cream
  • 60gm salted butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

    Base
  1. Place the ginger nut cookies in a food process and pulse until crushed.
  2. Add the melted butter and cinnamon to the cookie base and pulse until the butter is evenly distributed.
  3. Press the mixture gently into serving glasses.
  4. Cheesecake Layer
  5. Place the Nestle Caramel "Top & Fill", cream cheese and lemon in the food processor and pulse until smooth.
  6. Pipe or spoon the filling into the glasses to form a second layer.
  7. Refrigerate the cheesecakes for at least 3-4 hours if serving in glasses. If you are making a large cheesecake in a springform pan you will need to refrigerate overnight to enable the dish to set. Alternatively you could add gelatine to set the cheesecake. *Please note, I prefer the cheesecake without gelatine and served in glasses.
  8. Salted Caramel Layer
  9. In a saucepan combine the butter, sugar, cream and salt.
  10. Simmer the mixture for 4 minutes whilst stirring.
  11. Remove the caramel from the heat.
  12. Allow the caramel to come to room temperature.
  13. Pour a thin layer of caramel over the cheesecakes.
  14. Serve with cream and grated chocolate if desired.

Notes

Please note this recipe is designed to be served in glasses as an individual style dessert. It is not a firm baked cheesecake.

It was probably when I was adding the filling to the petite cups that I started to wonder if this dessert may be too feminine for a poker night. I dismissed this idea as ridiculous, “Who doesn’t like dessert” I thought.

When Mr GG arrived home I said, “I made you something for tonight”. He looked at me suspiciously and said. “What do you mean for tonight”

I proudly opened the fridge where 14 Salted Caramel Cheesecakes were chilling ready for the evening. He looked at me and said.  “I’m not taking those.”

I said “Why not?”

There was a bit of “too-ing and froo-ing” on conversation before he finally said.

“I’m drinking beer with blokes! We are not sitting around eating dessert.”

“Oh” I said.  I had suspected cheesecake wasn’t “man food” and it had been confirmed.  I continued to clean up the kitchen. I wasn’t particularly perturbed as I had been making the dessert anyway.  Then it occurred to me that hubby didn’t know these weren’t made especially for him so I said.

“You really weren’t too worried about my feelings were you?”

He said “What do you mean?”

I said, “I made these especially for you to take tonight and you just said flat out NO WAY.”

He looked at me like I was speaking another language, he said, “This isn’t about feelings, this is about drinking beer, and playing poker with blokes.”

LOL! I can’t argue with his male logic, and I was just teasing anyway.

So if any of the wives want Salted Caramel Cheesecake I have plenty.  Oh and if any of the “poker playing blokes” would have liked to try this delicious dessert I am very sorry, it’s not “Man Food.”

Since I prepared this dessert I have made two other desserts in the plastic wine glasses. The first was a Chocolate Mocha Mousse

and the second a Chocolate Raspberry Brownie Trifle.

I find these are really popular for BBQ’s and parties. The plastic wine taster glasses can be found at the “Reject Shop” for Australian readers.

  1. I wonder if they played poker or just drank beer? Love the cheesecake Julie 🙂

  2. Delicious!

  3. These are beautiful. I don’t know about these and beer but I’d be willing to give it a go. You could win my heart with these any day of the week.

  4. Can I live inside your refrigerator? Salted Caramel is one of my favourite flavours in cheesecake and these look stunning. I am so pinning this!

  5. “Not man food” – that is hilarious. 🙂 What funny ideas people get in their heads, eh? They TOTALLY missed out!

    • Very true Krista, the kids and I demolished a few too many though!!! Might have to look for a nice home for the rest of them. 😉

  6. Alesah Villalon :

    15 minutes total time! I don’t think I could prepare this as fast as you! On another note, I think this is man food. It just doesn’t match too well with beer :).

  7. Oh, so funny – they don’t know what they missed out on! I’d have accepted the offer in a flash 🙂

  8. Quick and easy to prepare…and they surely look very tempting!

  9. LOL at the fish being very safe! This looks like the perfect dessert to serve everyone! 😀

  10. Ha! He wasn’t budging, was he? Bet the other guys would have been annoyed if they’d known what they missed out on! And completely understand about the plastic glassware – this would be a great dessert to take on a picnic! 🙂

  11. Maybe if they were in plastic beer cups he would have them Julie! All the more for you then 🙂 These certainly sound delicious indeed- yummo!

  12. Awww I’d take it as compliment that he didn’t want to bring them to poker night. He knew they’d upstage the poker game and make everyone lose their focus! He also possibly wanted them all to himself 🙂

  13. My feeling about your cheesecakes is that they are sublime and gorgeous. I’m curious about the Nestle’s Caramel Top and Fill…I’m determined to find its cousin in the US because your no-bake wonders look and sound wonderful!

  14. Hi Julie, I sure would of ate one of them, maybe two….they look delicious!

  15. What a gorgeous dessert. I love salted caramel, but haven’t tried it with cheesecake before. Your “pin me” was very convincing and I was so happy to pin your photo. xo 🙂

  16. it looks perfect to me, no matter who is going to eat it! I bet my husband would love to have a bite 🙂 Pinning!

  17. You are a Lucky girl, finally all this wonderful desserts were for you ! Julie, it looks delicious, it is a very nice cheesecake ! He just lost a very nice sweet ! LOL 😉

  18. Hmmm, I’ll have to try some of that ‘Nestlé’s Caramel Top and Fill’ that you used for this recipe. Sounds like a real time-saver and looks good too!

    • Fran, I am the queen of “time saving” in the kitchen. The Nestle Caramel Top and Fill can be used anywhere Dulce de Leche is needed.

  19. Oh my these look so lovely, you’ve presented them so nicely Julie! I made a similar no bake cheesecake in a glass a while back with lemon curd but yours look far more indulgent. Yum!

  20. Salted caramel and no bake…I’m sold! They look awesome. Also new information to process in terms of gender constructs around desserts! 😉

  21. This looks beautiful! The individual servings are perfect for a poker party 🙂 My husband would sure like to have one. Thanks for the recipe. 🙂

  22. This looks beautiful! The individual servings are perfect for a poker party 🙂 My husband would sure like to have one. Thanks for the recipe. 🙂

  23. haha never seen dude food look too pretty and delicate – def a girl touch to it 😉 This salted caramel cheesebake looks so tasty and easy to make – must add it onto my to bake list!

  24. these look delightful!

  25. Oh yeah…I am Pinning this one for later. Not only do these look pretty, I bet they taste delicious. I am a huge fan of cheesecake.

  26. Julie, what a fantastic dessert! I’m sure my husband and his friends would really enjoy snacking on this during a poker game. Love that it’s no bake — it’s sooo hot here!:)

  27. YES! You had me at no bake.

  28. This recipe was the biggest hit! I have already had to print off the recipe 5 times to share with family and friends. The only change we made was we used 2 x 350 gm Philadelphia Cream Cheese.

  29. This looks delicious. Just wondering, could I make these on Friday and refrigerate them for a dinner party on Saturday night?

    • Hi Neena, that’s a great idea, the flavours meld together better if they are left overnight. You will also notice the cheesecake will be slightly better set the next day.

  30. I couldn’t find small taster cups to use, so I’ve used sherry/brandy glasses. I halved the base ingredients, not expecting to need a full lot of the filling. But then I forgot that I halved the base and made the normal amount for fillings which worked out perfectly. I got exactly five glasses worth. Although it was hard not to eat the top n fill directly from the can…

  31. Oh my goodness, I have to make these! Thanks for sharing.

  32. These look delicious…..I love anything salted caramel. Can’t wait to try them. (found you on SITS girls link up)

  33. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe! Salted caramel is all you have to say to gain my attention! I can’t get enough of it, and I didn’t realize it was so easy to make. Then adding cheese cake to it! Genius! Great recipe and story.

  34. This looks delish! Hubby missed out, I’ll eat his share!!! Pinning, my daughter and husband will love these. Now to find a manly poker night to try these out! LOL

  35. YUM – these look amazing!! Perfect for a party, or just for fun!! Pinned them. Glad I saw these at the #HomeMattersParty

  36. Just wanted to let you know that this post was picked as a feature on the #HomeMattersParty this week. Make sure to grab the I was featured button for your side bar found at http://adventuresfrugalmom.com/home-matters-linky-party-55/. I hope you will come back and link up again.

  37. sandy sullivan :

    Not sure how you managed to ‘pulse’ your gingernut biscuits till crushed. I have just blown up my $500 food processor trying to crush them. For a recipe that was supposed to take 15 minutes it has taken just over 1/2 to crush the biscuits.

    • I’m sorry you had difficulties with the recipe. I always use my cheap food processor to crumb cookies for cheesecake bases and I have never had a problem? I’m not sure what you could have caused a problem with your food processor.
