Frozen Mocha Cheesecake

I love desserts! I love chocolate! AND, I love no-bake super easy recipes! This recipe is all of these things!

I first had this at my mom's house a few months ago and since my kitchen was still under renovations, I hadn't been able to get around to making it until this week! I had forgotten just how delish it was!

Of course, I did modify the recipe slightly. I lightened the recipe by using 1/3 less the fat cream cheese and low fat sweetened condensed milk. I am happy to report that it was just as good as the full fat version!

Frozen Mocha Cheesecake
Taste of Home

1-1/2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted

2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened (I used low fat)
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk (I used low fat)
2/3 cup chocolate syrup
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
1 teaspoon hot water
1 cup whipped cream


Combine crust ingredients. Press into the bottom of a 9-in. springform pan; set aside. For filling, beat cream cheese in a large mixing bowl until smooth. Gradually add milk and syrup. Dissolve coffee in water; add to mixing bowl. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into crust; freeze at least 6 hours. Yield: 12-16 servings.
