No-Bake Galaxy Golden Egg Cheesecake!
*This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more details!*
A Creamy, Chocolatey, Sweet, and delicious No-Bake Galaxy Cheesecake using Galaxy Golden Eggs. Perfect non-bake for Easter, or for any time of the year!
Last year, I only discovered Galaxy Golden Eggs with two days to go before they stopped being sold. So, I was slightly heartbroken. I don’t even know why, but whenever I went into any supermarket, there weren’t any of these delicious beings! So therefore, I decided to go all out this year, and make a Cheesecake based on them.
Based on the idea of my No-Bake Honeycomb Crunchie Cheesecake I decided to use Galaxy Chocolate itself as the chocolate to melt into the cheesecake, so it made it even more delicious. I used slightly more than usual and it set so much better!
I then thought that using the Golden Eggs would be delicious… but as I found a bar of the Galaxy Collection Salted Caramel in my cupboard, I knew I had to add that too! Literally this cheesecake is a bit of a Galaxy mush.
A classic Jane twist of a drizzle of Melted Galaxy Chocolate, Whipped Cream, Sprinkles and the chocolate of choice (Golden Eggs, obviously!) I was set. Honestly? This is genuinely of the best cheesecakes I have made. I LOVE IT SO MUCH.
If you are more of a Cadburys kind of person, then check out my Cadburys Chocolate Cheesecake for sure – but this one is Galaxy through and through. It can really be used for more than Easter time, but its decorated with the wonderful Golden Eggs that I wish were available year round.
The recipe is on my youtube channel in a vlog if you would like to see it made! I have decided that after the hopeful success of my first Baking Vlog the other day, that I would do some recipes on youtube as well.
I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to share this recipe on here originally, as it was just intended for youtube, but after countless requests I updated this post to include it. I realise the photos themselves are a bit sub par, but I haven’t had the time to photograph this beauty again!
I’m sure all you Galaxy loving beauties out there will adore this cheesecake. I’m on the fence about whether I prefer Galaxy or Cadburys in general, but in cheesecake form?! I will admit that I prefer this one. The galaxy chocolate itself just melts so incredibly well into the mix, that how can I not?! Enjoy! x

- Pour in the liquid double cream and continue to Whip the Cream Cheese/Cream Mixture until it thickens.
- Fold through the Galaxy Golden Eggs and Salted Caramel bar – Pour the mix on to the biscuit base, smooth over, cover, and chill in the fridge for at least 5-6 hours hours or preferably overnight.
- Remove the Cheesecake from the tin - Whip together the Double Cream and Icing Sugar to decorate the cheesecake with. Melt the 50g of Galaxy carefully to drizzle over the cheesecake.

- This cheesecake will last for 3 days in the fridge!
- You can swap the Galaxy Caramel bar for the Caramel eggs if you prefer!
- You can leave out the Golden Eggs completely if you wish.
- You can swap the Galaxy chocolate for a basic Milk Chocolate instead if you want to make it cheaper!

Hi Jane, another delicious recipe, I did this with just galaxy caramel instead of golden eggs! I did find this didn’t set as well as the Lindt one that I’ve made a couple of times previously..and I did everything the same i.e. making sure the cream was stiff before placing it in the tin, not over whipping so it was sloppy etc etc. Is there a reason for this was a bit soft? This also happened in the same way with the Caramac cheesecake when I tried this. If I used more chocolate would this set better, or is there such a thing as over doing it when it comes to combining chocolate in a cheesecake? All were set over-night and the morning also.
Darker chocolate will always set better, but you can definitely over do it. Sometimes it does just need a bit longer to set (some people find two days in the fridge but obviously that reduces eating time), it can be that the melted chocolate was too hot etc! x
Hi Jane, I have been thinking about making a galaxy caramel cheesecake , in some of your other recipes you have added carnations caramel into the mix itself. Would adding some caramel to this particular mix interfere with the mixture too much ?
I just personally didn’t think it needed it for the flavour, but you could add some in if you wish! Have a look at my Snickers cheesecake for the filling as that uses chocolate and caramel!
Hi Jane, will this work with half mascarpone and half full fat cream cheese. Many Thanks.
Yes! As long as the mascarpone is regular, and not the lighter one!
OMG…. well what can I say!?
Made your cheesecake and it was heaven on a plate! oh lordy…
I will never use another recipe, it will be yours all the way,
Thank you Jane xx
Ahh yay! Thank you!! x
Hi Jane what size tin did u use.
Hi Jane, what size packets of golden eggs did you use? I watched the video but you don’t say. Need to find an alternative as not available in the shops at the moment
It will be written in the description of the video on youtube x
If I made this into individual cheesecakes (cupcake tin?), how many do you think it would make?
Probably 12-15! X
Will it still set if I don’t add the chocolate bits in the cheesecake filling (aiming for fewer calories lol)?
Also if I wanted to add a bit chocolate pieces, will the normal galaxy be ok?
P.s really enjoying making your recipes
Hiya! So do you mean to not add melted chocolate to make it a chocolate cheesecake? So you’d want a vanilla cheesecake? It would set, but they’re never quite as firm as ones with chocolate. But yes normal galaxy pieces would work inside it! x
Sorry if I didn’t make sense. I ment will the cheesecake filling still set if I didn’t add the chocolate eggs and galaxy caramel chocolate pieces to the filling?
Alternatively can I add little of the smooth galaxy choc pieces in the filling instead ?
I am new learner when it comes to baking so hence why with all the questions lol
P.s thank you for your prompt response.
Ahh okay yes, that would work!
Hi Jane, do you know if a food processor would give similar results as a stand mixer making a cheesecake?
Probably not, but I have never tried. Does your food processor have a whisk attachment? you could try that!
How many packets of golden eggs did you use.
Quantities are in the description of the video! ☺️
Love the video! I love you recipies. Could you post the ingredients like you normally do? Makes it easier to go shopping for them! The video looks super handy for the method.
Hiya – the recipe and method will be available on the video only. ?
