Gluten Free Cheesecake Bites

by - September 14, 2019

Cheesecake is always a favorite in our house. It is my husband's absolute favorite and it's just such a yummy dessert.  Even though I do love a nice slice of cheesecake, sometimes it's just a little too much.  Cheesecake is so rich and decadent so I thought, why not make it a little more fun with some cheesecake bites.  I was going to a BBQ at a friend's house and thought these cute little bites would be perfect to bring with me to a fun party.  I was right, they were a hit! Everyone went crazy over these cute little bites.  
 What is it about things being in bite sized pieces? They are just so good and so fun to eat.  Another thing about being bite sized is that they really cut down any cross contamination when you are at a party that has gluten products at it.  When you go to parties, it is very rare to be at one that only has gluten free food at it so when you bring gluten free food, you need to be really careful about cross contamination. So, because of this I  almost always bring desserts that are individual and don't need to be cut or a spatula.  You have to be really careful when bringing desserts that need to be cut because knives might be used in other things and then your dessert is not gluten free anymore which is just so depressing.  Having bite sized desserts just make it so much easier and safer for you or anyone else that is gluten free.
 I love these little bites because they are so easy to make.  If you follow my blog, you should know that I am all about baking things that are easy and delicious and these check both boxes.  There are very few ingredients in these cute little bites and no baking time at all.  These just needs to be chilled a few times for them to set. You can dip them in chocolate, strawberry sauce, raspberry sauce or any kind of topping that you want.  They are so versatile and so easy to whip up for a fun get together.
I can't tell you how much people loved these cute bites and I know you will too.  They are fun to make and so good to eat.  I highly recommend these for any parties that you want to bring a treat to share.  No one will know these are gluten free and they will be eaten up in no time.  To make these, you need some gluten free graham crackers which I have been able to find pretty much  anywhere.  You don't need a specific type just get the cheapest ones that you can find.  They are pretty versatile and it really doesn't matter what type that you get.

These little bites are so fun and so delicious and you won't be able to eat just one.  If you are looking for a whole cheesecake to make I have the absolute best recipe. Check out my Gluten Free Cheesecake recipe for an amazing gluten free cheesecake that will not disappoint.

How to cook Gluten Free Cheesecake Bites

  1. In a food processor, crush gluten free graham crackers until they are fine crumbs.
  2. In a large bowl, combine gluten free graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, salt, and melted butter, stirring until the mixture is the texture of wet sand.
  3. Dump the gluten free graham cracker mixture into a 9x9 inch baking dish lined with parchment paper. Press the mixture down with your hands to create an even layer. 
  4. Freeze for 10 minutes.

  6. Freeze for 1 hour.
  7. Transfer the frozen cheesecake onto a cutting board, peeling away the parchment paper.  Slice cheesecake into wide strips, about 1 cm, wide strips horizontally, then vertically, creating little cheesecake cubes. 
  8. In a small bowl, microwave the chocolate in 20-second intervals, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.
  9. Using a fork, dip in the chocolate and then swing the fork back and forth over the cheesecake bites to create the chocolate effect on the bites. 
  10. Freeze for 15 minutes, then serve.
