No-bake cheesecakes are so much easier to make than the baked versions. It’s quick to mix the ingredients together, and there is no risk of getting any cracks. The flavor of this Honey Cheesecake is sweet (thanks to the honey and sugar), rich (thanks to the mascarpone cheese), and has great texture thanks to the crunchy biscuit base. What makes this Honey Cheesecake really special, is the beautiful honeycomb design. It’s created by using cheap (sometimes even free) plastic bubble wrap. The ‘honeycomb’ holes are then filled with honey to create a BEE-autiful look! Want to impress your guests? Then make sure to serve them this creative Honey Cheesecake!

Recipe Tips and Notes

– The cheesecake needs enough time to set in the fridge to make sure it doesn’t run when you cut it. You can even store it in the fridge overnight!

– The gelatin and warm water shouldn’t be overmixed, otherwise the cheesecake won’t set properly.

– You can use this same recipe to make mini Honey Cheesecakes. Simply use small springform tins.

– If you want to make this cheesecake ahead of time (without the honey topping). After setting in the freezer, wrap the cheesecake (pan included) in aluminum foil and place in the freezer. Store it up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator. Add the honey topping and enjoy!

– You can store this cheesecake in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
