After looking back on the most popular recipes of 2015, it was pretty easy to see that you guys LOVE all things Mars Bar! So it only made sense to come up with an easy and delicious no bake Mars Bar Cheesecake recipe that I’m quietly confident you are going to love.
This recipe is based on my Maltesers and Mars Bar Cheesecake recipe and is filled with SIX (yep that’s right!) Mars Bars, which makes this a dessert not to eat if you are watching the calories.
To add to it’s deliciousness, I used Oreo Cookies when making the base. However you could easily substitute these with Chocolate Ripple biscuits if you prefer.
This no bake Mars Bar Cheesecake is a great make ahead dessert and I personally think it tastes better the day after it has been made, when it’s been sitting out of the fridge for 20 minutes or so and the Mars Bar pieces inside and on top of it begin to melt – yum!
No Bake Mars Bar Cheesecake
- 200 g of Oreos - 1 box
- 90 g of butter – melted
- 500 g of cream cheese – softened
- 130 g of thickened cream
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 110 g of caster sugar
- 6 x Mars Bars
Line the base of a 22cm springform tin with baking paper and lightly grease the sides. Set aside until needed.
Finely chop two of the Mars Bars and set aside until needed.
Process the chocolate ripple biscuits (or similar) until the resemble breadcrumbs. Add the melted butter and stir until combined.
Pour the biscuit mixture into your prepared tin and use a large metal spoon to cover the base with the mixture and flatten the surface.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, add the softened cream cheese, cream, caster sugar and vanilla extract and mix on a medium to high speed or until the mixture is thick, creamy and smooth.
Meanwhile, chop four Mars Bars into small pieces and place in a microwave safe bowl. Cook for 30 second spurts (stirring in between each cook) until they have melted.
Add the melted Mars Bars to your cream cheese mixture and mix on a medium speed to combine. Remove the mixer bowl from the stand and gently stir through one of your chopped Mars Bars before pour the cheesecake mixture over the biscuit base and top with the remaining Mars Bar pieces.
Place in the fridge to set. Ideally you want to leave this overnight, but is should be ok after 6 hours.
Remove the set cheesecake from the fridge and serve.

The above mixing times may vary depending on the softness of your cream cheese and Mars Bars. I suggest using cream cheese and Mars Bars which are both at room temperature and are soft.
This cheesecake is quite soft as it doesn’t contain gelatine. If your cheesecake is too soft or runny when you cut it – pop it back in the fridge to let it set for a bit longer.
