No-Bake Samoa Cheesecake Recipe
If you love those Girl Scout Samoa cookies or you love cheesecakes, chocolate, caramel and/or coconut you are going to want to try this Samoa Cheesecake. It's no secret that I LOVE coconut, chocolate and caramel and combine that all into one cheesecake and this mama is in heaven. Total bonus that you don't even have to turn the oven on for this delicious Samoa Cheesecake. It takes only 20-30 minutes to prepare it, making so tempting to have it all the time. However, you do have to wait for it to chill for 4-5 hours so plan ahead.
This is a decadent dessert that is sure to please everyone's tastebuds even if their waistline doesn't love them for it. Some things are just worth the indulgence and for me (and I think you'll agree) this Samoa Cheesecake is totally worth it!
Now of course if you're short on time you can take a few shortcuts like with the crust and get pre-made graham crust. I've been known to do that with other recipes but for this Samoa Cheesecake I promise the few extra minutes to put this shortbread coconut crust together is worth your time. Oh so worth it. You can also substitute the whipped cream for cool whip but I don't suggest that only because I'm not a fan at all of the product. Go with the real whipped cream it tastes so much better in my opinion.
Samoa cookie, chocolate lovers, caramel lovers, coconut lovers or in my case all of the above lovers let's get on to this recipe shall we?
- ½ 11-ounce package Shortbread Cookies
- ½ cup shredded sweetened coconut
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Filling and Topping
- 24 oz cream cheese, softened
- ½ cup sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 ½ teaspoon coconut extract
- ½ 11-ounce package Shortbread Cookies, crumbled into small pieces
- ½ cup caramel sauce, divided
- 3 cups homemade whipped cream
- ⅓ cup mini chocolate chips for topping
- ⅓ cup toasted coconut for topping
- additional caramel sauce for topping
- chocolate sauce for topping
- Place cookies and shredded coconut into a food processor and pulse until fine crumbs are formed. Add in the melted butter and pulse until it is fully incorporated into the cookie crumbs, then press it into
the bottom of a parchment-lined 9-inch springform pan.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, sugars, and extracts on medium speed until combined and smooth.
- Gently fold in the cookie crumbles and ¼ cup of the caramel sauce.
- Add the whipped cream and stir gently until fully incorporated.
- Add batter to crust in 3 batches, adding a little more of the caramel sauce each time until you've used all of the caramel. Use a knife to swirl caramel around between each layer, being careful not to cut into the crust.
- Smooth out the top of the cheesecake, then top with the mini chocolate chips, toasted coconut, and hearty drizzles of caramel and chocolate sauce.
- Cover and refrigerate for 4-5 hours, or until firm.
