These No Bake Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Bites are so delicious and fun to make! The pumpkin cheesecake filling has the consistency of a creamy pumpkin pie and it’s complimented perfectly with the white chocolate candy coating. These cute little pumpkin pie cheesecake bites are easy to whip up and most of the prep time is hands-off chilling time. I love the sprinkle of Nilla Wafer on top. It’s my favorite cookie to use for no bake pie crust, so I think it’s the prefect pairing. These are fun to serve at a party or holiday, and they also make great gifts. They are the perfect size to pop into mini cupcake liners.
For this recipe, I highly recommend using these melting wafers. They taste like real white chocolate and melt smoother than white chocolate chip morsels. The price can really vary on Amazon depending on demand. So if the two pound bag is a good price, it’s worth buying especially with the holidays approaching! My Target is not carrying them right now, but I did find some of the smaller bags at my nearby grocery store.
To make these yummy little pumpkin pie cheesecake bites, start by processing Nilla Wafers into crumbs.
Then add cream cheese, powdered sugar, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and pinch of salt. Once combined, slowly add divided portion of melted white chocolate.
In a shallow container, transfer pumpkin cheesecake mixture to fridge to chillier about one hour.
Once chilled, use a medium sized cookie scoop to scoop pumpkin cheesecake mixture. Roll gently into balls and chill again until firm.
Balance pumpkin cheesecake balls in a fork and spoon remaining melted white chocolate over. Carefully transfer to silpat or waxed paper lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
Before white chocolate sets, sprinkle with additional Nilla Wafer crumbs. I just crushed a few extra cookies by hand and sprinkled them on top.
For serving, try popping them into a mini cupcake liner. They look like a cute little pumpkin pie truffle!
