Cheesecakes No Bake Desserts

Cook time Cook time: 10 minutes

No Bake Samoa Cheesecake is so creamy and indulgent. Topped with chocolate ganache, lots of toasted coconuts and finished with caramel sauce.

We love making delicious and beautiful cheesecakes like Best Instant Pot Cheesecake, Cheesecake Factory Original Cheesecake, and No Bake Tiramisu Cheesecake.

Samoa Cheesecake

No Bake Samoa Cheesecake is one the best cheesecakes I have ever made.  If you love Girl Scout Samoa cookies, you will go crazy for this cheesecake! It is so heavenly creamy and indulgent that everyone will ask for seconds. The No Bake Samoa Cheesecake is made with a mix of cream cheese and mascarpone cheese, for extra creaminess.

Instant coconut pudding mix is added into the whipped cream for an irresistible coconut flavor. Desiccated coconut is stirred into the cheesecake batter for an amazing texture.

Topped with chocolate ganache and lots of toasted coconuts and finished with a sweet caramel sauce, just like your favorite cookie. You have to try this cheesecake, bonus points for being no bake and so easy to make!

Samoa Cheesecake Recipe Tips:

  • The mascarpone and cream cheese should be at room temperature.
  • Don’t replace the mascarpone with cream cheese. The mascarpone has a richer and creamier texture, it will make a huge difference in this cake.
  • Don’t over mix or whisk the cheeses on high speed. The mascarpone tends to separate if over mixed, so best to mix on medium speed.
  • You can make the cheesecake and layer it in parfait glasses as individual desserts.
  • Before adding the graham cracker crust to the springform pan, make sure you spray it with baking spray.
  • Chilling the cheesecake enough is very important, if you want to get perfect slices. I recommend chilling for at least 6 hours or better, overnight.
  • The heavy whipping cream should be very cold, straight from the fridge. It would be good to chill the mixing bowl for 10 minutes, before whipping the cream.
  • Do NOT try to bake this cheesecake batter, it does not contain any eggs, therefore its not intended to be baked.

How to slice a cheesecake:

  • Run a long, sharp thin-bladed slicing knife under hot tap water or dip it into a glass of hot water prior to slicing the cheesecake. Wipe the knife clean and run it under hot water before making another cut.
  • An easy, mess-free way to cut even slices is to use cheese wire or unflavored dental floss. Clean the bits that stuck to the wire/floss before every cut.


  • First, make sure that all the ingredients are at room temperature and well combined after being mixed.
  • Also, avoid opening the door oven while baking the cheesecake.
  • In addition, cooling the cheesecake in the oven, with the door slightly will prevent cracks.
  • Similarly, of you bake the cheesecake in a water bath, you will avoid cracks.


There are a few easy ways to hide or fix a cracked cheesecake top. Check my detailed Cheesecake post for all the details.

Can you freeze the Cheesecake:

Yes, you can freeze it BEFORE you top it with the ganache. Wrap cheesecake tightly with aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap, or place in heavy-duty freezer bag. Properly stored, it will maintain the best quality for about 2 to 3 months.

Tools I used in the making of the No Bake Samoa Cheesecake :

  • Springform Pan – love the quality of this one and it is leakproof.
  • Desiccated Coconut – can be used as an ingredient in savory and sweet recipes both to impart a coconut flavor and texture and as a topping or coating.
  • Coconut Extract – for a delightful coconut flavor.
  • Coconut Pudding – I used this one to add an extra coconut flavor to my cheesecake.

There are no words for how this blog post just made me feel. Seriously, this looks and sounds amazing. Two of my favorite treats, cheesecake and coconut together, OMG. I never would have thought to mix the two.

You must have known that cheesecake is my favorite dessert to have. I really like it plain or with strawberries or cherries. And here you have it with coconut. Oh my goodness. Yummy!


Kelly - A Side of Sweet

This looks incredible! What a fun spin on the classic no-bake cheesecake!


Dorothy at Shockingly Delicious

If a dessert with chocolate ganache and caramel sauce is wrong, I don't want to be right! The toasted coconut is icing on the cake!


Cathy @ Lemon Tree Dwelling

Samoas are my FAVORITE...and cheesecake is my other favorites! This looks amazing!


Amanda | The Chunky Chef

I'm totally drooling over here... Samoas are my favorite Girl Scout cookie, so I definitely have to try this!


Paula - bell'alimento

You had me at no bake and a samoa version at that! Yassss!



Wow, talk about indulgent! So many people love Girl Scout cookies that I'm sure this would be a hit. It's really nice that it's no bake, too. No need to heat up the kitchen.


Ali Rost

No bake desserts are my favorite in the summer, and cheesecake is always a winner! It was fun to run across your recipe, because Samoas are my husband's all-time favorite girl scout cookie. I'm so excited to make this one for him. I know he's going to love it! x



Oh my word does this look good! Pretty sure I'll be dreamingabout this tonight!



What is dissecated coconut? I've never heard of it.


not as moist as the flaked one, its usually dryer and more like a powder.
