Christmas Cheesecake with Chocolate Crust

This recipe uses Annie’s chocolate crackers to make the crust.  We love the Annie’s brand especially for making Holiday treats with ingredients that we can get behind.

Even Christmas can be a good time to teach your kids to make better choices when it comes to sweets and treats.  Top cookies with berries and fruit instead of frosting, this will fill them up faster and they’ll be getting natural sugar instead of refined and processed sugar.

Mini No-Bake Santa Cheesecakes for Christmas

After you place your strawberries on top, you’ll need a little “poof” of white to finish of Santa’s hat.  I topped mine with some extra cheesecake but you can use a dollop of whipped cream, or even a mini marshmallow if you snip it in half with scissors so the sticky inside can stick to the strawberry!

Mini No-Bake Santa Cheesecakes with strawberries

I was most nervous about popping these little guys out of the mini cupcake pan after they froze, but they popped out so easily! I just used a butter knife and pressed down firmly on one side of each well and each one POPPED right out! Enjoy my cute Mini No-Bake Santa Cheesecakes this Christmas!

Mini No-Bake Santa Cheesecakes, they look like santa hats!

Mini No-Bake Santa Cheesecakes
Serves: 24
Serving Size = 1 mini cheesecake
Prep Time: 15 m
Cook Time: 0 m


  • 1 cup – Teddy graham crackers, chocolate
  • 3 tablespoon – coconut oil
  • 8 ounce – cream cheese, low fat
  • 1/2 container (4 oz) – Greek Yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon – honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon – lemon juice
  • 1 tsp – vanilla extract
  • 1 dash – salt
  • 24 medium (1-1/4" dia) – strawberries


  1. Finely crush Annie's Chocolate Bunnies in a blender or food processor and combine with melted coconut oil.  Grease a mini cupcake pan and then place a heaping teaspoon of crust into each well and flatten. (I like to flatten all the wells together at the end, so I can disperse any extra crust crumbs that I have!)
  2. Place in the freezer to let firm while you make the filling.
  3. Combine softened cream cheese with greek yogurt, honey, lemon juice, vanilla and salt.  Mix until smooth.  Spoon about 1 tablespoon of filling into each well of you mini cupcake pan, then smooth out.  (I used extra cheesecake filling to make the top of my santa hat, so I froze it in a small bowl so I could roll them later.  BUT you can use whipped cream to top off your santa hats instead.)
  4. Place in the freezer to firm for at least 15 minutes. Use a butter knife to pop them out of your pan!
  5. Top with a strawberry (I chopped off the stems) to make it look like a santa hat! For the top of the santa hat, either roll little balls of your extra cheese cake filling or put a little whipped cream on top!

Cindy says:

What’s the best way to store these if I prep them the night before for a party? Fridge or freezer?

Natalie Monson says:

With out the strawberry? I would definitely store them in the fridge.


What is ” Annie’s Chocolate Bunnies ” We don’t have this where I live. This isn’t in the ingredient list either or how much chocolate this really is.

Jackie says:

Any kind of healthy chocolate cookie or even a graham cracker would do for your no-bake Santa cheesecakes.

Emily says:

I’m just making this now, sounds so yummy! Is it only 1 cup of the chocolate crackers? It only fills 11 mini muffin cups 1/4 of the way, not 24 for me. Thanks!

Anjelica says:

I APPRECIATE all of the hard work you do to give us fun and healthy recipes. This one I LOVE. I will definitely be making this on Sunday for dessert and probably many more times after that. My kids are going to have fun. Thanks Super Healthy Kids
