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.

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.

    Mmmmmmm….you know I love your Turtle obsession! These look marvelous…I can’t believe you cranked these out with the flu. You are a trooper!!!! xx

  2. says

    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.

  3. says

    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…

  4. says

    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.

    • Kim Bee says

      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.

  5. says

    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.

  6. Diana @GourmetDrizzles says

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

  7. says

    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!

    • Kim Bee says

      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.

  8. says

    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!

    • Kim Bee says

      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.

  9. says

    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.

  10. Sarah | Curious Cuisiniere says

    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!

  11. says

    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!
