It is officially fall and you know what that means – it’s time for all things pumpkin!!!

Pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin cake, pumpkin cannoli, pumpkin donuts, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, and the list goes on.

After so many old pumpkin treats, it’s time to add new ones to the list and these no bake chocolate pumpkin cheesecake bars are out of this world!

They feature a chocolate cookie crust and the chocolate pumpkin cheesecake filling is infused with creamy pumpkin puree and a double dose of pumpkin spice! If you look closer you can see specks from the pumpkin puree. Yum!!

And you won’t believe how easy they are to make!

Since it’s no bake, there is no need to worry about over or under-baking your cheesecake, cracks or water bath.

The only thing difficult about these no bake pumpkin chocolate cheesecake bars is letting them chill overnight.

A cheesecake that crossed paths with a pumpkin pie, these marble no bake chocolate pumpkin cheesecake bars feature layers of creamy pumpkin and rich chocolate all infused with just the right amount of pumpkin spice!

I mentioned the chocolate pumpkin cheesecake filling is infused not only with pumpkin puree but also with a double dose pumpkin pie spice.

The first one is a teaspoon of store bought pumpkin pie spice, the second dose comes from the seasonal pumpkin pie spice coffee creamer from International Delight! Oh so good!

The International Delight pumpkin spice coffee creamer is used in the chocolate layer.

Semisweet chocolate is mixed with 1/3 cup of the creamer and heated until smooth and creamy.

Optional, you can melt some more chocolate and coffee creamer to decorate the bars just like I did.

If you prefer a chocolate only version, double the chocolate. Use 8 oz semisweet chocolate and 2/3 cup of International Delight pumpkin pie spice coffee creamer. A cheesecake that crossed paths with a pumpkin pie, these marble no bake chocolate pumpkin cheesecake bars feature layers of creamy pumpkin and rich chocolate all infused with just the right amount of pumpkin spice!

The cheesecake filling calls for only cream cheese, pumpkin, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, heavy cream, chocolate, and coffee creamer. No gelatin or store bought whipped topping is used. What does that mean? It means it will not last too long at room temperature. It starts to soften after about 30-40 minutes.

If you’d rather use store bought whipped topping instead of making your own, leave the heavy cream and powder sugar out and use the entire 8 oz container of store bought whipped topping. Do not thaw!

Do you want to know what will it make these cheesecake bars even better?

A cup of pumpkin pie spice iced coffee by its side! Am I right or am I right?

Just like all other seasonal coffee, I’m always looking forward to its arrival, but this year I was very surprised to find it not at my local coffee shop but in the refrigerator isle of my local grocery store!

Hello International Delight Pumpkin pie spice iced coffee!!!

A half gallon of the fraction of the cost of the coffee shop ones and just as good! I couldn’t stop sipping the coffee and enjoying these no bake chocolate  pumpkin cheesecake bars!

Easy to make butter pecan turtle bars everyone will go crazy over! Buttery cookie, gooey caramel, crunchy pecans and rich ganache - 4 layer of goodness in every bite!

I have monthly subscriptions to several (food) magazines. Some of the magazines I’ve been receiving them for years, some I just recently started reading.

I love reading about the latest food trends, or ingredients almost forgotten, and now making a come-back. But no matter what theme or subject each magazine covers, you know when they have their seasonal issues. Especially the fall and winter ones. Pumpkin, caramel apples, pecans shortly followed by cookies and bars, and all things peppermint.

Yes, I do love this time of the year! Just as much as I love these butter pecan turtle bars!

Just as much as I love these butter pecan turtle bars! It’s like Thanksgiving and Christmas combined in every bite!

Buttery cookie with just a touch of vanilla, ooey gooey caramel packed with crunchy toasted pecans and finished with chocolate ganache! Drooling just thinking about them!

Easy to make butter pecan turtle bars everyone will go crazy over! Buttery cookie, gooey caramel, crunchy pecans and rich ganache - 4 layer of goodness in every bite!

To make these butter pecan turtle bars you need a little bit, OK, maybe a little more, patience.

If you made the Twix bars, these ones will be a breeze since the caramel layer is exactly the same!

The cookie base is very similar to shortbread, but egg yolks are used for richness. Best decision ever!! You can use your shortbread cookie base if you prefer, but you’re missing out. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Toasted pecans are one of my top 5 go-to snacks and incorporating them in these butter pecan turtle bars was a no brainer. Instead of going the classic “baked turtle bars” I only baked the cookie layer and the rest is done on the stove keeping the gooeyness of the caramel, the crunchiness of the pecans and the smoothness of the ganache.

A twist on the classic Thanksgiving dessert, this no bake chocolate pecan pie features three layers of chocolate goodness and a very generous amount of pecan pie filling. Everyone will rave about it!

I’m one of those people who wait until last minute to start planning their holiday meal. Yes, I have an idea weeks in advance of what I want to do, but penciling down and actually starting doing some of the prepping – pretty much the day before or even the day of.

It’s a bad habit. The good news is that most holidays it’s just my husband and my daughter and if something doesn’t go as planned, there’s always something in the freezer to save the day. As a food blogger, I have at least one full meal in the freezer ready to be cooked and desserts, sometimes, 5-6 types of treats. So I don’t stress too much.

Or I didn’t stress too much. This year will be different. I’m hosting Thanksgiving and I’m already writing down what I wanna make, when I need to go shopping and what’s the earliest I can start prepping.

I may not have the whole menu figured out, but I know this no bake chocolate pecan pie might be the star of my Thanksgiving dinner.

A twist on the classic Thanksgiving dessert, this no bake chocolate pecan pie features three layers of chocolate goodness and a very generous amount of pecan pie filling. Everyone will rave about it!

The thing about Thanksgiving desserts is that they need to be made in advance. You can’t bake your pumpkin pie or the cheesecake on Thanksgiving morning. There’s not enough room in the oven! Unless you have 3 or 4 ovens and in that case, I’m not talking with you anymore.

The beauty about this no bake chocolate pecan pie is that it requires no oven space. And it can be made up to a week or two in advance! How amazing is that? One less thing to stress about. You can thank you me now. Or later.

A twist on the classic Thanksgiving dessert, this no bake chocolate pecan pie features three layers of chocolate goodness and a very generous amount of pecan pie filling. Everyone will rave about it!

To make this no bake chocolate pecan pie you start with a chocolate crust. I used the same crust as in this no bake strawberry chocolate pie.  Chocolate cookies and butter. That’s all.

The second layer of chocolate is a velvety chocolate cheesecake. So GOOD! Cream cheese is mixed with sugar, International Delight Southern Butter Pecan coffee creamer and of course, melted chocolate! My daughter licked the bowl and spatula clean!

The third layer is pecan pie filling. It’s a very quick filing to make, just a few minutes on the stove. Brown sugar, cornstarch, water, egg yolk, pecans, and butter. Cook for a few minutes until thicken. I had to make the pecan pie filling twice since I kept taste-testing the first batch just to realize I didn’t have enough for my chocolate pecan pie. Oops.

The third and last layer, it’s a rich chocolate ganache. 8 ounces of chocolate are melt with 1/2 cup of International Delight Southern Butter Pecan coffee creamer and poured over the pecan pie filling. My heart just skipped a beat!

No mixer needed to make this incredibly soft blueberry bread loaded with fresh blueberries and crunchy pecans. Perfect to snack on along with a cup of coffee or tea.

Have you ever wondered how many blueberries you can add to one loaf of blueberry bread made in a 9X5″ loaf pan?

I haven’t until recently and I was on the quest to see what’s the highest amount of these juicy summer berries one can add. I started with 1 cup … but I was not satisfied.

The next day I bought more blueberries and added 1 and 1/4 cups blueberries. A slight improvement but I knew I could add a few more.

A couple of days later I added 1 and 1/2 cups. It turned out so pretty with berries in every single bite.

Curiosity pushed me and I made another loaf with 2 cups of berries. Yes, 2 cups of blueberries in one loaf!

It was like eating blueberry cobbler! I loved it so much, but knowing that it took almost 2 hours to bake, I decided against it.

You can definitely play around with the amount you prefer, but my recommendation would be 1 and 1/2 cups.

In my quest for the perfect blueberry bread, not only did I play with the amount of berries but also with the size of the baking pans.

The blueberry bread pictured in this post is baked into a  7.5 x 3.5” loaf pan but I have baked the same bread in a 9X5″ loaf pan. The only difference is the baking time. 

When baking with blueberries, remember to coat them in flour so they don’t sink. blueberries

Happy National Cheesecake Day!!

Cheesecake Day is one of the top 5 days I celebrate every year, along with my birthday, my daughter and husband’s birthday, Christmas day and National Chocolate Day.

Yes, I know, there are 6 days, but cheesecake day and chocolate day are equally important so they both share the 5th spot. Any chocolate and cheesecake lover will agree with me.

And what better way to celebrate this day than a slice of this mouth-watering no bake smores cheesecake? 

no bake smores cheesecake recipe 3

Smores is one of my favorite summer flavors and I love creating new twists on the classic. After sharing with you a smores iced coffee, rice krispies smores bars, smore brownies and smores coffee cake it was time for a smores cheesecake!

And not just any cheesecake, but a no bake smores cheesecake featuring layers of graham crackers, chocolate ganache, marshmallow cheesecake and another layer of chocolate ganache.

Finish your cheesecake with some crushed graham crackers crumbs, mini marshmallows, and broken milk chocolate and you got a show stopper dessert!

I love baking cheesecake, but now and then I keep my oven off and whip up a no-bake version. Both versions require a little bit of patience.

In this post, I shared with you my tips and tricks for a successful baked cheesecake, and today you’ll learn the tricks for a successful no-bake cheesecake.

As you probably know, in most of the baked cheesecakes, I prefer the crust to be made from graham crackers and butter.

When it comes to a no-bake cheesecake, sugar is required. Not to sweeten the crust, but to act like a glue and hold the crust in place.

To make sure the crust won’t fall apart, I spread a thin layer of chocolate ganache (milk chocolate and International Delight chocolate coffee creamer) before adding the marshmallow filling. You can find the same technique in this no bake pie.

Easy to make no bake smores cheesecake features layers of decadent buttery crust, rich chocolate ganache, airy marshmallow cheesecake filling and a second layer of chocolate ganache. One bite and you're in love!

For the filling, you’ll need cream cheese, marshmallow fluff, and whipped cream.

I love whipping my own cream and the best homemade whipped cream starts with a chilled bowl, whisk, and heavy cream. Almost all the time, I place the bowl and whisk in the freezer for at least 30 minutes before whipping up by cream. It yields to the fluffiest, creaminess cream ever!!! Don’t skip this step when a recipe calls for homemade whipped cream!

Once you have your filling and poured into the pan, refrigerate the cheesecake for a couple of hours or overnight. This will ensure clean slices without the cheesecake collapsing in the center.

For the finishing touches, another layer of chocolate ganache is poured over, sprinkle some graham crackers crumbs, scatter some mini marshmallows and broken milk chocolate on top.

Refrigerate until the chocolate ganache is set before slicing.

If you’re wondering how does it taste, well, you’ll be begging for s’more!

Fluffy and light marshmallow filling, two layers of silky smooth chocolate and butter graham crust. Layers of happiness!

I love that the marshmallow filling is not overly sweet, you can barely taste the tanginess of the cream cheese and pairs perfectly with the milk chocolate ganache.
