Description

No-Bake Sweet Potato Cheesecake Bars made with a graham cracker crust, a middle layer of cheesecake, and a layer flavored by sweet potatoes.


Scale

Ingredients

For the Cheesecake Layer:

  • 16 oz. Cream Cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Whipped Topping
  • 1 tbsp. Vanilla Extract

For the Sweet Potato Layer:

  • 1 Large Sweet Potato
  • 4 oz. Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

For the Crust Layer:

  • 12 Graham Whole Cracker
  • 1/2 cup Melted Butter
  • 1/4 cup Dark Brown Sugar

Instructions

  1. Place your graham crackers in a zip lock bag and crush into fine pieces using a rolling pin for the crust layer. Add finely crushed crackers to a large bowl. Add brown sugar, melted butter, and mix using a fork. 
  2. Add the Graham Cracker mixture to a square casserole dish. Press evenly into the bottom of the dish until it is fully covered.
  3. Peel the skin from the sweet potatoes and cut them into cubes. Boil for 30 minutes.
  4. Drain sweet potatoes from water and add to a large bowl. Mash using a potato masher. Add all sweet potato layer ingredients into a large bowl. Blend until smooth using a hand mixer. Set to the side.
  5. For the cheesecake layer, add cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract into a separate bowl. Mix until smooth (for 3-5 minutes) using a hand mixer. Add the whipped topping to the bowl and fold ingredients together.
  6. Pour your cheesecake mixture over the crust spreading evenly. Add the sweet potato mixture over the cheesecake layer and spread evenly.
  7. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours before serving. When ready to serve, cut your pieces into even squares.

Notes

Add a large sheet of parchment paper that covers the bottom and sides of your casserole dish before adding your first layer. This will make it easier to lift the cheesecake from the dish when it's ready to serve.

You can also bake your sweet potatoes instead of boiling them. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Using a fork, make a few holes on the top of the sweet potato. Place them on a baking sheet and bake them for 1 hour. Allow to cool and peel back the skin.
