This Christmas candy cane cheesecake by Recipes by Carina on YouTube is a no-bake recipe that’s perfect for the holiday season. It’s a simple and easy recipe to follow along with that does not require an oven. I love peppermint flavored things especially during Christmas time, so it would be a nice festive dessert to make. The crushed candy canes on top look amazing, and I like how it’s made out of homemade ingredients. The peppermint swirls in the cheesecake are simply amazing. Also, I think it would be unique to use the green peppermint and combine it with the red peppermint for a combination of Christmas colors. I’m not a big cheesecake fan, but they’re so quick to make and popular during the holidays.



  • 9 oz Digestive Biscuits or Graham Crackers, crushed
  • 1/2 Cup, 1 Stick Butter, melted
  • 2 Cups Cream
  • 9 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Icing Sugar or Powdered Sugar
  • 1-2 tsp Peppermint Essence
  • 5 Candy Canes
  • Whipping Cream to serve


First, in a mixing bowl, combine the crushed biscuits and melted butter. Pour the mixture into a lined 8-inch cake tin and use the back of a spoon to compact evenly to form the cheesecake base. Place in the fridge to set.
