No Bake Patriotic Cheesecake
What You Need
  • 2-8 oz packages cream cheese
  • 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 + cups cool whip
  • Red and blue gel food dye
  • 1 1/2 cups graham crumbs
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup each red white and blue candy melts
  • 2 Tablespoons shortening or coconut oil optional (makes candy melts more smooth)
  • Patriotic sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Line and grease a 6" springform pan.
  2. Combine the graham crumbs and melted butter in a bowl.
  3. Press the graham crackers into the bottom of the prepared pan and set in the freezer for 10 minutes as you prepare the cheesecake filling.
  4. Combine the cream cheese and sugar until light fully combined. Add in the cool whip and mix until just combined.
  5. Separate the cream cheese mixture into 3 bowls and add red dye to one and blue to one, leaving the third white.
  6. Remove the graham crust from the freezer and place large dollops of the cheesecake filling all over the crust in a random pattern.
  7. Use an offset spatula or the back of a spoon to smooth the cheesecake down.
  8. Place in fridge and let set for at least 2 hours.
  9. Place the red, white and blue candy melts in small, separate bowls.
  10. Heat for 35 seconds, stir, and reheat as necessary until the candy melts are smooth. Add in the coconut oil as needed.
  11. Let the candy melts cool as you carefully remove the cheesecake from your springform pan and smooth down the edges as needed with an offset spatula (run the spatula under hot water to help).
  12. Drizzle the cooled candy melts all over the cheesecake and then sprinkle the patriotic sprinkles overtop while the candy melts are still wet.
  13. Let the candy melts dry, about 10 minutes, before serving.
