No-Bake White Chocolate Cheesecake

  • 2 4.4 oz packages Walkers Shortbread Gingerbread Men + more for garnish
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 8 ounces white chocolate
  • 2 8 oz. packages cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste or extract
  • Zest from one orange
  • 1 T. orange juice
  • 2 cups heavy cream

Mulled Fruit

  • 2 ½ cups mixed berries – blackberries raspberries cherries
  • ¼ cup red wine or cranberry juice
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger
  • Pinch salt
  • Zest from one orange
  • Juice from one orange
  • Whipped Cream optional
  • Sugared Cranberries optional
  • Thyme or rosemary springs optional


  • Add the Walkers Shortbread Gingerbread Men to a food processor and pulse until fine crumbs. Pour into a bowl and add melted butter. Mix until combined and resemble wet sand. Set aside.
  • Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler over gently simmering water. Set aside to cool.
  • Add the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla bean paste, orange zest, and orange juice to the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on medium speed until smooth, scraping the bowl occasionally. This takes about 3 minutes. Gradually add the cooled white chocolate. Transfer to a large bowl.
  • Add the heavy cream to the same bowl and whip with the cream until stiff peaks form.
  • Fold ⅓ of the cream into the cream cheese mixture to lighten. Fold in the remaining cream until well combined.
  • To make the mulled wine fruit, add the fruit, wine or juice, spices, salt, orange zest, and orange juice to a small saucepan. Cover with a lid and cook on medium-low heat until the juices release from the fruit and begin to soften, about 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the fruit. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • To assemble the cheesecakes, spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the Walkers Shortbread Gingerbread Men mixture into the bottom of a glass. Spoon or pipe cheesecake filling over the crust. Chill in the refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight, covered loosely with plastic wrap.
  • When ready to serve, top with mulled fruit. Garnish with whipped cream, a whole Walkers Shortbread Gingerbread Man cookie, and sugared cranberries.
