No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls

I love making anything pumpkin. My kids literally can’t get enough pumpkin. I stockpile pumpkin goodies in every form. These No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls will now be made all year. They are easy and taste amazing. I had a hard time getting a picture of these because my kids kept trying to steal them. Bring them to a party … you’ll be a hit forever!

No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls are a delish alternative to the traditional pies. Wow your friends & family with these autumn dessert delights!

What’s really nice about No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls is the ease. They are simple to make (I love that), they are easy to take with you (they need to be refrigerated but as long as you aren’t going cross country, no problem), and they are easy to eat. Who doesn’t love that?

I also love having a non-traditional Pumpkin Dessert! Pumpkin Pie is amazing right? But it’s so much fun to take the Pumpkin flavor out of the pie and make new things that you haven’t had every year since birth! I love traditional favorites, but it’s such a pleasure making something that no one has had before (or at least not every single year!).

No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 C White Chocolate (either chips or broken into pieces) divided
  • 3/4 C Vanilla Wafer Crumbs (See instructions may double amount)
  • 1/2 C Pumpkin Puree
  • 6 ounces Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 C Powdered Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

Instructions

  1. Take 1/2 C of the White Chocolate and melt
  2. While chocolate is melting (careful it burns easy) mix crumbs, puree, cream cheese, sugar and spices - I found it easiest to use a Food Processor but if you need to a hand mixer or blender should work
  3. Add melted white chocolate to already mixed ingredients and blend again - let it go in the processor for a while. It take about 2-3 minutes for everything to combine well for the balls.
  4. TASTE. If you need more sugar add it.
  5. Place mix into a bowl and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (can be longer but then cover)
  6. NOTE if dough is still "mushy" freeze for 15-30 minutes. You have to work fast and make the balls. I refrigerate the balls again before dipping in chocolate
  7. NOTE 2 if you don't like the consistancy of balls at 3/4 C wafer crumbs add more wafer crumbs up to 1 1/2 C total of crumbs
  8. Place wax paper on a cookie sheet
  9. Take out chilled dough and begin making balls by rolling (about) 1 heaping spoonful at a time
  10. Melt remaining white chocolate
  11. Dip balls into white chocolate and refrigerate to set.
  12. Store in fridge and serve when chilled

  1. Oh you certainly had me at pumpkin and cheesecake and it’s a huge bonus that it’s no-bake! Yum!

    • I was pleasantly surprised at how easy they were to make. I was also pleasantly surprised at how much they really tasted just like pumpkin cheesecake!

  2. I love pumpkin all year long. I also love the ease of these!

  3. This little dessert sounds (and looks!) soo good! I love everything pumpkin too, so I can’t wait to try this. Pinned to my Pumpkin board!

  4. These pumpkin cheesecake balls sound so good, I can’t wait to try them!

  5. Anything no-bake has my name written all over it!

  6. How many does the recipe make?

  7. Try freezing the mix for 5 minutes

  8. can you freeze these?

  9. Is there a way to make these without vanilla wafer crumbs? I can not eat wheat and I would really like to make these for a party on Monday

    • I don’t think so…is there a Wheat Free Wafer/Cookie that you usually use? If you have a wheat free option of that then yes. sorry 🙁

  10. How many cheesecake balls does this recipe yield?

  11. What I did is freeze the dough for a good 20-30 minutes

  12. I’m using these for my demonstration speech for school I can’t wait to try them! My whole class needs at least one how many balls does this recipe make?

  13. These were great once I adjusted a few things. The first batch was too soft an mushy. My second time around I added 1 cup more of vanilla wafers , this also helped with getting it to thicken faster and made it more of a moist cake like to bite into. Also the white chocolate was a struggle to keep in the smooth liquid state , so I added about a tablespoon, or more of coconut oil (do not melt before adding to white chocolate) or as needed to keep it smooth. It did not affect the taste and made it easy to work with keeping the consistency perfect.
    I have to say the second time around was delicious and were gone in minutes.
    Definitely making this again!

    • I actually HATE melting chocolate ;0 I’m the worst – another idea is melting the chocolate in a small crock pot in a mason jar (best trick ever).

      And yes some people have not liked the consistency of these. I do have to say that they are on the softer side of balls – they aren’t like a firm cake ball or a firm pb ball – so I get it – glad you found adjusting the wafers worked 🙂

  14. Where is rest of recipe

  15. Can you use graham cracker crumbs instead of the wafers ??

  16. Where’s the recipe?

  17. I could not get the receipe to come up. I really want to make these.

  18. So are the vanilla wafers the long rectangular cookies or the Nilla wafers that are round?

  19. I made this for my work Thanksgiving party… they were a HUGE HIT! My husband took some in, too, and I’ve already gotten requests for the recipe, so I sent them here 🙂

  20. Foamrock50 says:

    SOOOOO. HOW MANY does this recipe make? No quantity is listed, not even an estimate. HELP.

  21. Any tips/tricks for the dipping in the melted chocolate? I double boiled my chocolate, and it was so messy to dip, and did not come out as nice as the picture at all, and my chocolate got thick after 5-6 balls. I tried to reheat it, but that just made it thicker. So I couldn’t take them to the party. 🙁

    • I am the worst at this lol! I now use my crock pot to melt the chocolate and I throw in a ball then use forks or spoons to get it out. Maybe someone else can chime in but I’m a mess doing it too!

    • I shred about one tablespoon of parrafin wax in my chocolate when melting it
