Tiny Turtle Cheesecakes (No Bake) #SundaySupper


I can hear the collective gasp of surprise now…

Kim made something Turtley…

Shocking right!

I think you’ll forgive my obsession when you realize how flipping cute these are. They are also the easiest little cheesecakes in the world to make.

We’ll call them “cheater cheesecakes”. And we won’t even feel a little bit bad about it.

Trust me, these will make those of you who like to spend hours prepping your desserts change your tune. They take about 3.57 minutes to make…

and about .357 seconds to inhale.

Life is good. 

If you are a regular reader you probably know I’ve been wicked sick this week. Fever, shakes, the whole nine yards. I had planned to make a very complicated, full on crazy full size turtle cheesecake. But let’s be honest folks, baking, and eating for that matter, are not fun when you’re flat on your back with a fever of 101. So I cheated. I made Tiny Turtle Cheesecakes and I adore them. Quite likely the simplest dessert I’ve ever made in my life. Quite likely the cutest too.


Tiny Turtle Cheesecakes (No Bake) #SundaySupper

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 12 mini shot glasses

Serving Size: 1 to 2 shot glasses

Tiny Turtle Cheesecakes (No Bake) #SundaySupper

So simple and quick to make you won't believe it. You also will not believe how good they taste. You might even feel guilty. If you weren't so busy eating them all.


  • 3/4 cup of Oreo Crumbs
  • 3/4 cup of Chocolate Philly Spread
  • 3/4 cup of Caramel Sundae Sauce or Homemade Caramel
  • 3/4 cup of Whipped Cream
  • 1/4 cup of Chopped Pecans


  • In tiny little shot glasses put about 1 tablespoon of oreo crumbs on the bottom. Tamp it down.
  • Add the philly spread and tamp down.
  • Add half the caramel sauce to each cup.
  • Add the whipped cream to each cup, and smooth it out.
  • Add the other half of the caramel sauce.
  • Top with chopped pecans.
  • Serve with a big old Turtle smile!


If you want a firmer base add about 2 to 3 tablespoons of melted butter to the crumbs and mix well before filling the cups with it.

  3. 5

    PS…look at your cute spoons!!!!

  4. 7

    These are precious! And so easy to assemble. Looks like you slaved all day to create them though. I sure hope you are feeling better, at least well enough to eat your share of these.

      I love dishes that look complicated but really aren’t. I get such a kick out of it when folks think it took me all day. Must be the little devil in me.

      I figure another day or so and I should be back to normal.

  5. 9

    Here’s the thing: when I see Turtles? One of my most favourite chocolate treats? I THINK OF YOU. It’s creepy. But I’m still really glad that you keep finding ways to work them into my daily diet…

  6. 11

    You are the turtle queen! Love it, love it, and love it some more. Bring on the turtle recipes because you know I love the turtles.

  7. 13

    Oh my gosh!! These would be so quick and easy to make when I have a I need for cheesecake right now mood! I love the flavors you used and mmmm, who doesn’t love turtles??

    • 14

      Thanks Jennifer. I tend to love doing quick and easy dishes. And who doesn’t love turtles, right.

  8. 15

    Oh wow… not only do they sound amazing… they LOOK amazing!! So cute in those little glasses!!

  9. 17

    Tiny = more for Jen to eat!

  10. 19

    I think you should be known as the lunatic turtle from now on. Cute, simple cheesecakes, what more can we ask for? They are amazing Kim! And nothing is fun when you´re with a fever…

      Lol, I know right. I have a problem. Thanks so much Paula. I just love to bake, but this is the best I could do sick. They turned out pretty good.

  11. 21

    You know, you’re real good at this turtle thing. You might want to think about making more of them. ;-) Really fun and creative. And I’d gladly dedicate .357 seconds to snarfing these! Good stuff – thanks.

  12. 23

    Kudos to you for doing anything while sick. If that were me, I’d be completely lazy.

  13. 25

    Oh my goodness, these are so stinkin’ cute!!!

  14. 27

    I will only forgive your obsession if you promise to save me one. :)

  15. 29

    Oh wow! Think you could mail some my way? ;) These look delicious!

    Ok, first of all, anything Turtle is yum by me… and in cute little shot glasses? How fun!!! ;-)

    I’m amazed you were still able to make these little decadent stunners this week, Kim! Poor you. When I’m sick, I’m the biggest baby in the world. You can’t get me out of bed for anything. Weeeeell, maybe I’d get up for one (or three) of these since I love turtles so much. This week’s Sunday Supper has opened my eyes to this amazing Philly cheesecake filling product. I never knew they made it! Next time I don’t want to bake my own, I’m getting a tub and spooning it into my mouth in front of the tv. I hope you feel 100% better soon!

      Thanks so much Nancy. I was pretty much doing what you would do last night. While I was making these I was also making black forest bites and scarfing them while I was taking pics. I love that they sell the spread now in chocolate. It’s fab and quick.

  18. 35

    Hope you are feeling better soon!! These sure are cute and I think I would inhale one in 3.56 seconds!!

  19. 37

    Hope you are feeling better! These little cuties look delicious!

  20. 39

    Now this is the kind of cheesecake I can handle making. Yum, yum!

  21. 41

    Turtles are my mom’s fave, she’d love this!

  22. 43

    I just laughed when I read on the list you were making Turtle Cheesecakes :) I like how you dont have to let these chill overnight! Yay instant indulgence!

    • 44

      I am nothing if not predictable. I wanted to do a full on beautiful from scratch dish but man I was just too sick. This is a great thing to whip up when someone shows up at your door at the last minute.

  23. 45

    These are adorable, and I’d rather have something like this than a heavy, dense cheesecake. Hope you are feeling better!

      Thanks Brianne. I feel the same way. So much lighter this way.

      Starting to feel a tad better. Yah!

  24. 47

    Go Turtle Power!!!! :) Feel better Kim!

  25. 48

    Adorable! Alas I’m not a great baker, even if cooking isn’t required – desserts hate me. I may commission my little brother to make these. I don’t know why I’m using the word “commission”…I certainly won’t be paying him. Just inhaling in 0.3 seconds.

      Kim Bee says:

      I used to be the same way. Tackle something simple like this and the dessert world is your oyster. I realize that’s a bad way to put it. The world is your cheesecake?? I bet you could whip these up no problem.

  26. 50

    You cheated? Really? These look too perfect for you to have cheated. I want to take one of those tiny spoons and dig in…deep! Yum! Feel better, Kim!

    Hope you’re feeling better! These look lovely, and it’s great to have simple desserts like this up your sleeve for surprise guests. Turtle is one of my favorite flavor combos, so I’m completely sold!

  28. 52

    I love all your turtle creations. This is another fantastic no bake dessert. :)

  29. 53

    Awww. Delicious treats are a great way to heal from a cold. Feel better!!!

  30. 54

    Ooh I love such easy recipes since I’m not that good a baker!This looks so super easy and so delicious not to mention fast :)Yumm..
    Hope you’re feeling better now!

  31. 55

    Yum! I love no bake cheesecakes!!!

  32. 56

    The caramel and choped pecan on this simple dessert is perfection :) make my mouth watering right now :)

  33. 57

    I NEED these in my life, like asap! Those are so cute and I love the layered look in the glasses!

  34. 58

    I love easy desserts like this. I’m not one for waiting. Baking and then cooling is just too much. When I want cheesecake I want it now!

  35. 59

    I hope you’re feeling better. A dessert like this would have me on the mend in no time flat. I love the automatic portion control too!
