Celebrate New Year's Eve with this easy, delicious Black and White Cheesecake Clock!  

As prepared by Hungry Happenings

Counting down to midnight on New Year's Eve is always fun, but imagine how tasty it could be with a Cheesecake Clock.

This festive dessert is so easy to make because it's a no-bake cheesecake. The sweet marshmallow fluff cheesecake filling is complimented by a rich and smooth chocolate layer. Then chocolate clock pieces are added for a decorative touch. Set your edible clock to a few minutes before midnight and ring in the New Year with your friends and family while enjoying this fun dessert!


Black and White Cheesecake Clock

This no-bake cheesecake has two thick layers. To make the bottom layer, grind vanilla cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies to fine crumbs in a food processor. If you don't have a food processor, you can crush the cookies by placing them in a zip top bag and smashing them. Mix in a block of cream cheese until you have a thick dough.


Black and White Cheesecake Clock

Cut a gallon size zip top bag along two sides. Pinch off about 1/4 cup of the chocolate dough and place it the zip top bag. Roll it out to about 1/16" thick. Freeze for 30 minutes.


Black and White Cheesecake Clock

Line the bottom of an 8-inch springform pan with non-stick aluminum foil or parchment paper. Press the remaining cookies and cream dough into an even layer in the bottom of the springform pan.


Black and White Cheesecake Clock

Use a food processor or handheld mixer to beat a block of cream cheese and marshmallow fluff until creamy and smooth. Add whipped topping and beat to combine. Pour on top of the chocolate layer in the springform pan.


Black and White Cheesecake Clock

Smooth the cheesecake filling out in the pan. Freeze for at least one hour. Using small metal cutter and a pastry wheel or knife, cut the clock numbers and hands out of frozen cookies and cream dough. Re-freeze for 30 minutes.


Black and White Cheesecake Clock

Remove cheesecake from freezer. Unlatch and remove the springform pan sides. You may need to warm up the metal sides a bit. Wet a towel with hot water, wrap around the pan, allow sides to warm slightly, unlatch and remove sides. Carefully peel off non-stick foil and set cheesecake on a cardboard cake round or serving platter.


Black and White Cheesecake Clock

Carefully peel chocolate numbers from zip top bag and place them on the cheesecake to form a clock. Add the chocolate clock hands so they show a few minutes before twelve o'clock. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve, up to four days.


Black and White Cheesecake Clock

Set your Black and White Cheesecake Clock on your festively decorated table along with some dessert plates and forks or spoons.


Then serve up a Happy New Year!
