I love to make this No-Bake Double Layer Tim Tam Cheesecake when we’re having friends over or are going to a BBQ or party. It really is a cheesecake that needs to be shared! Not only is it incredibly rich (like all no-bake cheesecakes), it’s also totally over-the-top in Tim-Tam-y goodness. So yep, just cut a nice little piece… it’s all you’ll need (but then totally go back for seconds later on!).No-Bake Double Layer Tim Tam Cheesecake

When you’re making any no-bake cheesecake, it’s important to grease your springform pan really well and to line both the base and sides with baking paper. This will ensure that your cheesecake comes out of the tin looking beautiful. To get a perfectly smooth cheesecake (which is definitely what you want), make sure all of your ingredients are at room temperature before you start. I’m terrible for remembering to do this, but it does make a HUGE difference.

I always leave my cheesecakes in the fridge overnight before removing them from the tin. Theoretically, the gelatine will set the cheesecake within a few hours, but you’ll always get a better result if you leave it overnight before slicing it. But geez… I tell you what. It is HARD work waiting that long.

No-Bake Double Layer Tim Tam Cheesecake

It’s so simple to get that gorgeous double layer look happening in your No-Bake Double Layer Tim Tam Cheesecake. You simply divide your cream cheese mixture in half, and add white chocolate to one half and milk chocolate to the other. Easy peasy! I usually pop the cheesecake in the fridge while I’m mixing the white chocolate layer, which gives the milk chocolate layer time to set slightly – making it far easier so spread the white chocolate mixture over the top.

  1. Ooh, I see it’s all about the Tim Tams lately, Lucy, with that amazing fudge and now this awesome cheesecake! Love your no-bake cheesecake tips too. I think they really are necessary here, because there definitely is an art to getting it right! I tend to be really impatient when it comes to desserts that have to sit for a while, so I’m not entirely sure I’d be able to wait overnight to serve this up. I have a hard enough time just waiting 10 minutes for a batch of biscuits to cool down!!

  2. This looks the business! I love the double layers because double chocolate is twice as nice!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Double is the best!!! Totally agree!

  3. She’s done it again! Awesome Lucy, looks absolutely scrumptious!

  4. Nicole says:

    Hi, how much sugar do you put in the cheesecake mixture? It seems to be missing from the ingredients list.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oops sorry that was a typo! I’ve added it in now – 3/4 cup. xx

  5. Looks perfect. Really who doesn’t like timtams then?

      1. kathleen says:

    Xx

  9. Kim says:

    Hi, I am making this right now. Yes there are a few steps and it is taking me forever (maybe that’s just me!) but I know it will be worth it when sharing with friends tomorrow. Hubby just tasted the bowl and spoon from the chocolate layer and it’s the bomb.com so we can’t wait to taste tomorrow- thanks! Kim

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Woo hoo!! Enjoy!

  10. I live in Hong Kong and the Tim Tams just aren’t the same so I had a friend send some to me just so I can make this!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      That’s brilliant!!!

  11. Emma says:

    This looks divine Lucy! Do you think it would freeze ok? I’m picturing freezing it in slices and having sneaky dessert once the kids are in bed haha!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hmm I’m not a big fan of freezing cheesecake to be honest… but you could definitely try!

  12. HI I was wondering if you know of any yummy cheesecake recipes without gelatine in them ?Thankyou so much !.

  13. Amy B says:

    HI. I’d love to make this dessert for my sister’s bday. (She spent a summer in Australia while in college and introduced us all to the phenomenon of the TimTam.) Anyway – was wondering you have this recipe with American measurements? Just wanted to check before I start looking for a convertor tool on the internets. Thanks!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Amy, no sorry I don’t have American measurements but there are some great online converters! xx

      1. Amy B says:

        Thanks so much. Appreciate the reply. I’ll see what I can find. 🙂

  14. Nat says:

    Looking to make this beauty today but wondering what size tin was used so the layers look nice like this and not too thin. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Nat, sorry I should have included the size!!! From memory this was a 22cm tin. xx

  15. Rita says:

    Hi, I’m looking to make this in individual mini dessert cups. Do you think this would work?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Absolutely!!

  16. Norelle says:

    Much fun making this! Simple and reasonably quick to make. The family loved this. Will reduce the amount of sugar in the next bake though – very, very sweet! And that’s coming from a sweet tooth!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Thanks Norelle! xx
