Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cheesecake Bites Ingredients

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cheesecake Bites raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (16-ounce) box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cake mix
  • 12 ounces white almond bark
  • ⅓ cup crushed Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal (or a generic version) 

PRO TIP:

To crush the cinnamon crunch cereal, you can pulse it in a food processor or in a ziplock bag with a rolling pin.

How to Make This Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cheesecake Bites Recipe

STEP ONE: It is important to heat treat the dry cake mix before adding it to the cream cheese. Pour the dry cake mix into a medium-sized heat-safe bowl. Microwave the dry cake mix in two 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval. Allow the cake mix to cool completely before mixing into the cream cheese.

STEP TWO: Using a medium bowl and an electric hand mixer on medium-high speed, beat the cream cheese for 1½ to 2 minutes until completely smooth.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature to avoid lumps in the creamy cheesecake mixture.

STEP THREE: Sprinkle the cooled, dry cake mix over the top of the cream cheese. Continue mixing just until well incorporated.

STEP FOUR: Tightly cover the cream cheese mixture and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

PRO TIP:

You can allow the uncoated cheesecake bites to sit overnight in the refrigerator before the next step. Be sure to pull them out and let them come to room temperature slightly before coating because the cake mix may expand, and the coating may crack if you coat the bites too soon.

STEP FIVE: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.

STEP SIX: Using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the cheesecake dough. Roll the dough into a ball and set it on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat the steps with the remaining batter.

STEP SEVEN: Using a heat-safe medium-sized mixing bowl, microwave the almond bark in 30-second intervals, stirring well after each interval until completely melted and smooth.

STEP EIGHT: Roll the cheesecake bites in the melted almond bark. Place the coated bite onto a fork. Gently tap any excess coating off. You can use a spoon to pour the coating over any bare spots. Use a toothpick to gently push the coated cheesecake bites onto the parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

PRO TIP:

If the coating becomes too thick, you can reheat it in the microwave for 15-second intervals, stirring well after each interval until smooth.

STEP NINE: While the cheesecake bite is still “wet”, sprinkle the crushed cinnamon crunch crumbs over the top of the cheesecake bites. Repeat the coating and sprinkle process until all the remaining cheesecake balls are coated. Allow the coating to harden completely before serving.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Store any leftovers of these cute little cheesecake bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. 

IN THE FREEZER: You can freeze uncoated cheesecake bites for up to 2 months. Allow the bites to thaw overnight in the fridge before coating and sprinkling.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why do I have to microwave the cake mix?

Since the cake mix has uncooked flour that may have pathogens, it is unsafe to consume raw. Heating it in the microwave will kill any pathogens and make it safe to use in this no-bake cheesecake recipe.

Should these cream cheese balls be served cold or at room temperature?

These little cheesecake balls should always be served chilled, so keep them in the fridge until you are about ready to serve them.

Can I make these with other cereal?

This easy cheesecake recipe would be tasty with any type of cereal, although the flavor really comes through with the cinnamon toast crunch-flavored cake mix.
