No Bake Cherry Ripe Tim Tam Cheesecake… for two

The best ever easy no bake cherry ripe cheesecake that has to be tried immediately. This is a cheesecake to knock the socks off.

It’s not healthy, but it is delicious and the perfect way to spoil the one you love. Made with the ingredients that Australia loves.

Firstly, yeah… I did just use Cherry Ripe AND Tim Tam in the same title (you are welcome 🙂 ) wait til you hear how quick and easy this baby is.

And yes, you still have time…

No Bake Cherry Ripe & Tim Tam Cheesecake; Crunchy, chocolately biscuit base with a creamy, sweet chocolate and Cherry Ripe delight. A dessert to impress!

It is hump day, middle of the week- perhaps you are thinking that you might be crawling to the end of the week and the idea of being able to create or present a delicious dinner for your lover… or group of friends, seems out of reach, mostly because you cant be bothered.

Cherry Ripe Cheesecake

I’ll let you in on a secret…

I am struggling this week. Majorly. I am officially back at work (yep, even mentally) and I am tired… I am a *little* behind on my blog work and to top it off… the recipe I had originally planned to share on SPP… I lost.

Yep, I have the photos… but no recipe. Loser…

Cherry Ripe Cheesecake

Don’t fret, I will find that baby, but this week I couldn’t and that’s cool… because I kind of like this one better. Like all good recipes, this was created from tired, hunger and strolling up and down supermarket isles.

It was lunchtime, I headed to the supermarket to grab lunch (okay, I wanted chocolate) I actually wanted more than that… I wanted cheesecake (if I was superwoman… that would be my kryptonite).

So with chocolate in hand, a dash to the cold section and walking past a shelf of on sale biscuits…

No Bake Cherry Ripe and Tim Tam Cheesecake for Two for born.

I whipped this up, raced the sunset to take photos and had them ready for editing all in an hour. Yep, it is quick, impressive and easy…

You need this recipe in your life 🙂

No Bake Cherry Ripe & Tim Tam Cheesecake… for two

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 2 large serves or 4 small serves

No Bake Cherry Ripe & Tim Tam Cheesecake… for two


  • 4 Tim Tams - crushed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter- melted
  • 20 grams dark or milk chocolate - roughly chopped
  • 200 grams lite cream cheese (at room temperature)
  • 2/3 cup lite sour Cream
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 Cherry Ripe bar- chopped roughly (+ 1 extra for decoration)


Roughly break the Tim Tam's up in a small bowl. Add the melted butter and chocolate and stir until they are well combined. Divide in two and place in the bottom of two serving dishes equally.

In a medium bowl, place the cream cheese, sour cream, vanilla extract, brown sugar and beat very well until no lumps remain, the sugar is well combined and the mixture is soft and creamy.

Place the chopped Cherry Ripe into the cream cheese mixture and stir.

Divide the cream cheese mixture between the serving glasses and decorate with extra chocolate and broken Cherry Ripe.

Cover and place in the fridge until serving. The longer it sits, the texture will change and gain a thicker cheesecake texture.

What is your kryptonite?

Should you stay away from supermarkets when you are hungry?

I’d love to hear from you!

P.S- Happy Valentine’s Day. Whether you celebrate it or not, I hope you have a happy day and are reminded by someone how loved and special you are, because… you are!

    Looks yummy but what are Tim Toms? (they might be called something different where I live.) Thank-you for linking up to Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party. I have pinned this post to our board.

    • Catherine Holt February 23, 2015 at 7:01 pm #

      Tim Tam’s are Australian Candice. I know they sell them in the UK, but it sounds like they havn’t reached the states. They are basically chocolate biscuits, with a chocolate cream filling and then covered in chocolate. Need I say more?! Lol

    • Kirsten @ Treat Yourself Sweeter February 23, 2015 at 9:20 pm #

      Oh no… They are an ingredient that should be sold EVERYWHERE! They are amazing in winter with a hot chocolate! Good luck! I hope you find them 🙂

  10. Audrey February 22, 2015 at 8:04 am #

    We don’t have Tim Tams or Cherry Ripe bars here in the States that I know of. I am off to search for them or a suitable substitute so I can make this.

    found this on Mumbo Monday

    • Catherine Holt February 23, 2015 at 6:59 pm #

      Oh no Audrey….that is criminal….seriously….criminal!!!! Well you will have to take my word for it, that both are incredibly delicious and together…well a match made in heaven 🙂 I hope your search finds something!!

    • Kirsten @ Treat Yourself Sweeter February 23, 2015 at 9:18 pm #

      Oh no! They are AMAZING… I an surprised they don’t sell them. Cherry Ripe is like a cherry favourite Bounty bar and Tim Tams and decadent chocolate biscuits… Good luck!

  11. Audrey January 8, 2016 at 8:42 am #

    I wish Tim Tams were easier to find here in the US. I need to find a good substitute. Thanks for joining us on the Creative K Kids Tasty Tuesdays Linky Party. We hope you will join us next week.

    • Catherine Holt January 8, 2016 at 10:41 am #

      Oh no Tim Tams….that’s not fun! When I lived in the UK, “Penguins” were pretty similar. Hope you can find a substitute 🙂
