This gluten free no bake chocolate cheesecake is the one they’ll be begging for again and again, and the good news is that no one will ever know how incredibly easy it is to make. And it’s big and bad enough to serve to a hungry crowd on Father’s Day.

The crust couldn’t be simpler, and requires absolutely no baking at all: just mix your favorite gluten free cookie crumbs with melted butter, press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the pan and chill. Nothing to it!

Since there are no eggs in this no-bake cheesecake, it gets its structure from easy, fresh whipped cream. The result?

A light and fluffy, mousse-like chocolate cheesecake that isn’t too rich, isn’t too sweet—and never disappoints.
