This No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake recipe is sponsored by a product for review from Newman’s Own Organic. All opinions expressed here are my own.
I love to bake and since I have a horrible sweet tooth, there is almost always some sort of dessert in my house. My kids love me….my scale hates me! But, I can’t quite kick the habit so I try to make it from scratch so I can control the ingredients. I don’t worry so much about fat and calories (although I probably should be!). I am more concerned with preservatives and other artificial ingredients. I buy organic products as much as possible and this no bake chocolate cheesecake is full or organic heavy cream and Newman’s Own Organic chocolate. As I was browsing through recipes for inspiration I realized that it is MUCH too hot here right now to turn my oven on for an hour. I decided that a no bake chocolate cheesecake would feed my need for creamy chocolate without heating up my oven and turning my house into a sauna.
You can get fancy with this no bake chocolate cheesecake and put it into a spring form pan but honestly, I don’t really need fancy and was feeling rather lazy! I lined a 9 inch by 5 inch pan with foil before spreading the chocolate crumbs in the bottom. There was just enough room for the entire batch of filling and after it is chilled, each piece of no bake chocolate cheesecake can then be topped with peanut butter whipped cream, chopped peanuts, and small bits of peanut butter cups (also organic from Newman’s Own). The resulting no bake chocolate cheesecake is a decadent dessert that is perfect for a hot summer day!

I am a huge fan of Newman’s Own Organic Chocolate and I love that it is carried right in my local Kroger. I received a number of different flavors which I have never tried up until now. Their chocolate is made from cocoa beans grown on Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms. The Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal means that the cocoa in these chocolate bars was grown on farms that meet comprehensive standards for sustainable farming, protecting soil, waterways and wildlife habitat as well as the rights and welfare of workers, their families and communities. The Newman’s Own organic chocolate come in many flavors including
- Dark Chocolate
- Super Dark Chocolate 70% Cocoa
- Mocha Milk Chocolate
- Milk Chocolate
- Espresso Dark Chocolate
- Orange Dark Chocolate
This no bake chocolate cheesecake would be delicious with the addition of mint or espresso. There are so many ways to get creative with this recipe using the different flavors of Newman’s Own Organic chocolate bars. These chocolate bars are creamy and flavorful and I love that the ingredients come from sustainable sources. These chocolate barsare available in two sizes: 3.25-ounce and 2.25-ounce.
I also tried a number of the Newman’s Own chocolate cups which were also delicious. I used the peanut butter cups as a topping to this no bake chocolate cheesecake but ate a number of them just straight out of the package. I think my favorite was the caramel but the peppermint ones were also delicious.
Overall, I love the chocolate from Newman’s Own Organics and it was a great addition to my no bake chocolate cheesecake!
