Tips for no bake eggnog cheesecake recipe

  • You can use either homemade graham cracker crust or store-bought graham cracker crust. It can be easily found in the baking aisle.
  • Use gel coloring to color the filling red and/or green to make it more festive for the holidays.
  • Use  full fat cream cheese and whipped cream for maximum creaminess.
  • Caramel sauce on top is optional but looks pretty and compliments the cheesecake flavor very well.
  • Use a cheesecake pan or a cheap round aluminum pie pan. 
  • You can either use alcoholic or non alcoholic eggnog.
  • If you don’t have homemade eggnog, use store-bought eggnog. 
  • You must chill this cheesecake because that allows the mixture to fully set.
  • You can mix in some rum or some nutmeg and cinnamon in the mixture to enhance the flavor even further. 
  • Some brands of eggnogs are lighter in color and others have a yellow tinge. Also, white chocolate pudding (I used this!) has a lighter color than vanilla pudding, which also affects the color of the final cheesecake. Depending on that, the color of your cheesecake may be dull white or slightly yellow.

Variations

  • Make this cheesecake in a rectangle pan instead of a round pan and cut square or rectangle slices to enjoy as cheesecake bars. 
  • Instead of a large cheesecake, you can make individual mini cheesecakes or mini tarts by using mini round pans.
  • I used a classic graham cracker crust that you can buy or make at home. However, you can replace that with a gingersnap crust by using the recipe in this Pumpkin Cheesecake, where I used a spiced gingersnap crust. That would make this dessert even more perfect for Christmas! 
  • There are a few ways to incorporate chocolate flavor here. You can use a chocolate cookie crust or  Oreo Pie Crust.You can also drizzle some semisweet on dark chocolate ganache on top, along with chocolate shavings or mini chocolate chips. 
  • This is a non-alcoholic cheesecake recipe but you can easily add a little rum, whiskey, bourbon or brandy and use that in this cake.

Topping for best eggnog cheesecake

I topped it off with caramel sauce and a sprinkle of ground nutmeg but you can also top it off with:

  • Whipped cream– Either spread a layer of this cream or just pipe swirls around the cake. 
  • Semisweet or white chocolate ganache drizzle– Just drizzle on top.
  • White chocolate shavings or chocolate chips– Sprinkle them on top of the cake. 
  • Eggnog glaze – Just drizzle on top.
