The Cooper Family’s no-bake cheesecake tutorial on YouTube made me realize how simple it really is to make cheesecake. Of course, I knew cheesecake was made out of cream cheese, but this recipe requires only 3 ingredients. I think it blows my mind how there are only 3 ingredients needed to make a no-bake cheesecake. The toppings for this recipe are endless, just make sure to blend them up before layering your cheesecake. When things are simplified and less complicated, I think that attracts me more to actually remaking the recipe. However, I do like challenges, but I hate spending hours in the kitchen. These look amazing and they’re so easy to travel with or pack in your bag for lunch.



  • 2 12 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Optional Toppings:

  • Butterfingers
  • Reese’s cup
  • Snickers
  • Oreos
  • Nutter butter


  • mason jars
  • zip lock bag (if you don’t have a piping bag)


First, scoop out the 2 12 ounces cream cheese in a large bowl. Blend the cream cheese until it becomes a soft consistency. Then, add in a cup of powdered sugar and 2 tsp of vanilla extract to the mix until everything is incorporated.

Next, transfer the cheesecake filling and place it inside your piping or zip lock bag. Insert the piping bag in the middle of the mason jar and start layering up your no-bake cheesecake with the filling and toppings.

Overall, I’ve always loved the look of no-bake cheesecake in a mason jar. They’re cute and I would see them in stores all the time. You can become creative and make them pretty by adding ribbons to the lids or creating stickers on the outside. Some people add labels on the outside with the ingredients listed.
