No Bake One-Bite Chocolate Espresso Cheesecake Recipe

An unexpected ingredient makes these chocolate espresso cheesecake come together in just minutes! No bake and just a few ingredients.

My favorite food group on earth is definitely sweets, so it’s no surprise that I am obsessed with desserts. Now that it’s getting a bit hotter in South Texas I am determined to build up an arsenal of no bake desserts that are tasty and quick to put together for holidays and get togethers.

With Easter coming up, I know many of you will host an Easter brunch/lunch, so I developed a delicious cheesecake recipe that is easy to prepare, delicious and beautiful. These mini no bake cheesecakes feature a velvety chocolate and espresso filling that will remind you of the expensive cheesecake slices from your favorite restaurant.

You might be surprised to see that I used Nesquik Chocolate Powder Mix and Nescafe Clasico instant coffee to pull this cheesecake together. These unexpected ingredients can easily pack a punch in your baking in cake batters, frostings and cheesecakes—they’re full of flavor, affordable and likely already in your pantry.
