I love cheesecakes, but I haven’t always enjoyed making them. In fact, even though I was a professional cook in a fine dining restaurant for years, I was still intimidated to make my own cheesecakes – up until this past summer when I made my Lavender Honey Cheesecake for the 4th of July. That was the very first traditional cheesecake I had ever made, and it turned out perfect! Even if you’re intimidated like I was, you really should try these Incredible Christmas Cheesecakes this holiday season. You’ll be surprised by how easy they are to make – especially with such great recipes and instructions. Also, be sure to check out my Lavender Honey Cheesecake Recipe and my list of 25 Extraordinary Cheesecakes for even more dessert inspiration!
Best Christmas Cheesecakes for Ultimate Holiday Entertaining
SLOW COOKER CRANBERRY CHEESECAKE
Making a cheesecake in a slow cooker makes it amazingly creamy – like on a whole other level from typical oven baked cheesecakes. This slow cooker recipe is made perfect for the holiday season with a sweet + tart cranberry compote made on the stove top!

CHRISTMAS CANDY CHEESECAKE
This cheesecake recipe is almost identical to my Lavender Honey Cheesecake Recipe, but I don’t use a water bath to bake mine (and it didn’t crack!). This cheesecake has the same sweet cheesecake layer and balancing sweet-tart sour cream layer on top. If you haven’t tried a cheesecake like this, I seriously encourage you to do so. Mine was super easy to make, and everyone who tried it marveled at how perfectly balanced, creamy, and delicious it was! This cheesecake is made super festive for the holidays by simply placing lots of your favorite Christmas candies – like coconut Ferrero Rafaello confections, sugar plums, gum drops, M&Ms, and whatever else you like – on top of the cheesecake after baking!
PEPPERMINT BARK CHEESECAKE
It wouldn’t be Christmas without plenty of peppermint flavors! Get your seasonal quota in this indulgent Peppermint Bark Cheesecake with an Oreo crust and creamy cheesecake filling loaded with chocolate and peppermint.

FERRERO ROCHER CHEESECAKE
Ferrero Rocher Hazelnut Chocolates are easily my absolute favorite chocolate candy! Instead of “Death by Chocolate,” here we have “Death by Nutella,” and I couldn’t be happier if this is the way I go. Nutella is everywhere in this recipe – the crust, the creamy cheesecake filling, the chocolate ganache, and, of course, in those beloved candies!
