No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

This No Bake Oreo Cheesecake is not only quick and easy to throw together, it’s packed with Oreos! In fact, depending on how crazy you want to get, you will need more than 1 package of Oreos for this baby.

You see, I’m the kind of gal that when you tell me something is flavored a particular way I don’t want to take a bite and have to go searching for the flavor.

No, I want it to practically scream at me. I don’t want to be able to miss the awesomeness and I don’t want you to miss it either. I’ve got your back.

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

So a bite of this cheesecake is like a big Oreo kick in the mouth. There’s no holding back. You’re welcome.

I mean who are we kidding, anything with Oreo is awesome. You need to cram that in as much as you can. Surely there’s some way to rearrange the letters of “Oreo” and spell awesome?

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

But back to the cheesecake…

My list of recipes and things I want to make is constantly growing and I can’t bake fast enough to keep pace with it. An Oreo cheesecake has been on that list for some time, but when I had a specific request for it on Facebook a couple weeks ago, I decided to move it on up the list.

I’m responsive like that.

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

I knew I wanted the cheesecake to be thick and creamy – as close to real cheesecake texture as possible. If you know me, or have read this post on my love of cheesecake – you know cheesecake texture is important to me. Like, if it’s not right why even bother?

It also needed to be as Oreo-y as possible.

Well, my friends, now I am totally in love with this recipe and want to make all kinds of no bake cheesecakes!

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

It’s perfect! Not too cream cheesy, super thick and creamy, and FULL of Oreos.

Plus, it’s SO easy to make. A simple and straight forward list of ingredients that basically just get combined and thrown in a pan. No oven involved. My kind of recipe.

It’s seriously a winner. So delicious and Oreo-y! The hubs is in love with it and I keep hoping I’ll forget it’s in the fridge.

But of course that never happens. I think sugar pulls me to it like a magnet.

  1. Oh my yum!! My husband would die for this- he looooves oreos!

  2. I’m a big cheesecake fan and this one looks fantastic. Oreos in cheese cake? What’s not to love? :-) Great post and awesome photos!

  3. Oh my!! This looks AWESOME! Gotta try this one, looks soo good! :)

  4. No-bake cheesecake! Sign me up. I made Oreo cheesecake the other week for a side project I’m working on. :)

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      No-bake anything rocks! Could the side project be your book? Can’t wait to get it when it comes out! :)

  5. I am totally in love with all the cakes on this page!!!

  6. Can’t go wrong with anything that has Oreos in it! YUM!
    Thanks so much for linking up to this week’s Catch a Glimpse party! I’ll be featuring this tomorrow.

  7. I showed this to my friends, and if I don’t end up making this before I go back to school, I guarantee I’ll be forced to make it by my friends, lol! Looks so incredible. Pinned!

  8. MMMmmmm.. Oreo + cheesecake = heaven!! I am SO making this!! It is making my stomach rumbling! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    I’d love it if you linked this up over at Living Well Spending Less for Thrifty Thursday this week! http://www.livingwellspendingless.com/category/thrifty-thursday/

  9. Usually I like my cheesecakes plain. I am not a big fan of gooey fruit or syrups on my cheese cake. This cheesecake may replace my plain favorite! Nothing fruity or gooey here. Crunchy chocolate oreos surrounded by creamy cheese cake sounds heavenly! Thanks!

  10. This is so gorgeous Lindsay! I love me some Oreos, and in a no bake cheesecake, it wouldn’t last in my fridge. But it would be me eating it…

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      Thanks Dorothy! I feel like it’s always me eating it, too! I need my husband to have a bigger sweet tooth :)

  11. Wow! Mouthwatering!

  12. This looks delicious! Thanks for sharing at Mix it up Monday :)

  13. You had me at “no bake”! My husband looooves Oreos. This sounds like a treat that is win-win for the both of us… delicious for him to eat and easy for me to make!

  14. Lindsey, you are killing me with your cheesecake creations! Mow I need cheesecake when I should be thinking about what to make the kids for dinner. Thanks for sharing at Thursday’s Treasures, I’m featuring you this week on the Blog and on FB!

  15. Oh my gosh…. This is the second time I have ended up on your blog today! You are making me so hungry!

  16. Peggy Tan says:

    Hi may i know what’s mean by 3 8-oz packages cream cheese? 3.8oz or 3-8 oz?

  17. That looks delicious, and I would love to try it! One question – is the cool whip (well, whipped cream as we don’t get such fancy treats as that on this side of the Atlantic) measured by weight or volume? I just want to make sure it’s not fluid ounces for some crazy reason :)

    Thanks!

  18. jessicagall says:

    heyy do you take out the cream from the oreo

  19. YUMMY!! Stopping by from the Totally Tasty Tuesday Link Party…..this looks SO GOOD! Thanks for sharing, and I am excited to be a new follower!

    ~ Jenn

  20. Jamie @ Love Bakes Good Cakes says:

    I must have seen this cheesecake 10 times this week …. and every time, I’ve wanted a slice! Thanks so much for linking up to All My Bloggy Friends last week – I hope you’ll join us again tomorrow. I look forward to seeing what you’ve been working on this week! :)

  21. Holy, Oreo goodness, Batman!
    I hope you don’t mind if I use it in the food fight feature tomorrow (photo and link back only!)

  22. Hi! Should I use only the cookie part (no cream) for the crust? Thanks!

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      No, you can use the cream. I do. I think it actually helps the crust hold together, along with the butter.

  23. Hi, is “3 8-oz packages cream cheese” in your recipe call for 3 packages of 8 oz cream cheese = 24oz cream cheese? or……??

  24. LoverOfAnythingChocolate says:

    Looks sooo good! I want to reach into the screen!
    Actually, it reminds me of Dirt Cake(If you never tasted it, you have to, just make sure you make it with white pudding mix and not NOT chocolate pudding mix, it tastes better with vanilla-yep, coming from a girl who calls herself “LoverOfAnythingChocolate” )

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      Thank you! I actually haven’t had Dirt Cake – I’l have to check it out though. Thanks!

  25. hye i am your new follower got to know about you from huda kattan she mentioned you so i checked your blog n ohH God i m loving it :) first of all thanx a million for all these wonderful recipes and so quick too i am so gonna try it and i also joined your fb so i am gonna post pics of my oreo cheese cake there then do let me know how it looks like :) and secondly can you tell me one thing how you crushed all those oreos in such a fine mixture for the base and on top too? how can i crush them like this? n so sorry for this silly question but i am just a student and new to baking thanx a lot for wonderful delights :)

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      Thanks Maryam! I’m glad you like the site! I use a food processor for the fine Oreo crumbs.

  26. Hi, I would really love to try out your recipe , looks yummy!! What you mean by mix? Can I mix by hand cos I didn’t have a electric mixer. Thanks

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      A hand mixer or something would probably be better. But if the cream cheese if soft enough, you might be able to do it by hand.

  27. pandaland says:

    Hi do you need an electric mixer when you’re mixing the cheese and sugar together or is it okay to do it by hand? (:

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      You could try doing it by hand, it’ll just take some work to get it as smoothly combined as a stand/hand mixer. A good arm workout though! :)

  28. heartsburden says:

    Hi there! Thank you so much for the recipe. I make the cake last week and it tasted so good! Heavenly delicious! It was my first no-bake cheesecake ever! And I’m getting great feedback from my family and friends. They LOVE it!!! Even though I’ve over beat my whipping cream and it became curdled, but thank goodness it still turn out awesome!! :D Can’t wait to try other recipes from your beautiful site!! :)

  29. I made the non bake cheesecake ,but why is the cheese not hard ?

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      I’m not sure I understand your question. The cream cheese should be room temperature to work with and make the cheesecake, but should firm up in the refrigerator. Does that help?

  30. nur.faziah says:

    Hi, I was wondering for the oreo base, does it need to be crushed finely? Thanks!!

  31. After refrigerating for several hours, will the cheesecake melt when placed out of the fridge for several hours? (:

  32. Just made this! Have a friend’s birthday coming up and I had previously made mini-oreo cheesecakes in cupcake tins, which everyone loved, but it didn’t quite mix in the Oreo’s as much as it was just chunks mixed into the cream. I’ve only just read the comments after finishing though. I actually removed all of the cream from inside the Oreo’s to make the crumbs. Did I just make a big mistake?? I figured if I did leave it in the taste might be a bit too sweet and intense… Hopefully it’ll still be delicious!

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      Hi Raquel! You didn’t mess anything up. You can do it either way – the crust will be the same. It’s just an extra step that isn’t necessary if you don’t want to do it. I hope you love it! :)

      • It was a success!! Not that I expected anything else. It’s a foolproof recipe. :) I used a spring form pan that I wrapped with clingfilm, both the sides and bottom separately. I was able to remove the sides, not so much the bottom. Next time maybe I will try a baking sheet, but overall I felt like it was too soft to try to move it around…

  33. Hi, I have a question in regards to this cheesecake. It looks great and I plan on making it tonight but I was wondering, what kind of Pan should I have it set in? Can I use a typical spring form pan with the sides that remove? Or should I be placing crisco or what not around it so it dsnt stick?

    Should I also be placing something under the crumbs at the bottom so it is simple to remove?

    Please let me know.

    Thanks.

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      Hi Elyssa! You’ll need a 9 inch spring form pan. You can put parchment paper in the bottom of the pan if you want, but it usually doesn’t stick.

  34. What will happen If I put too less whip cream,

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      It’ll probably be little thicker and more cream cheese tasting.

    • Tried this today ; soooooo good!
      In fact it’s bedtime but my husband’s in the kitchen helping himself to another slice
      Thanks for sharing Lindsay!
      Will be trying more of your other recipes soon.
      Ps : hello from Singapore!

      • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

        I’m so glad you both like it! How cool that you are all the way in Singapore! Thank you for reading :)

  35. Can you make this oreo cheesecake using the Golden Oreos??

  36. Just tried making this today and my was it good! Super easy to assemble, and still tastes a million bucks. Thanks for uploading this recipe!

  37. hi Lindsay thanks for posting great recipe’s. I am going away for Christmas & wondered if I could freeze this for couple days? Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      Hi Lindsey, I’ve never tried freezing it before, so I’m not sure. I’d think it’d be ok though.

  38. Hi, can you suggest a substitute for Cool Whip that will work with the taste and with holding it together? Cause I live in the Philippines and we don’t have Cool Whip in here. :(

  39. Hi! Greetings from Singapore! :) just wanna ask whether this recipe will work as well if I separate it into cupcakes instead of doing it as one whole cake?

  40. Hi! I was wondering if I could just use store bought whip cream instead of cool whip. We don’t have cool whip here in Indonesia. Thanksies :)

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      I’ve never tried it, but I think that should be fine as long as the whipped cream is fairly thick. If it’s a brand that gets kind of liquid, it may not work well.

  41. how long do i have to leave the base to set ?

  42. Hi!

    I was just wondering, if I was to add some Bailey’ to this recipe, would it change the texture of the cheesecake at all? After making your Bailey’s cookies I have a thing for adding it to desserts.

    Thanks!

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      It would loosen it up a bit, so it wouldn’t be quite as thick. It would still taste great though! You can also buy irish cream extract, which wouldn’t mess up the texture at all. I’m so glad you enjoyed the cookies too – I love them!

  43. I don’t have access to Cool Whip so is the bottled whip cream just the same?

  44. 1 oz is how many grams ?

  45. Can’t wait to try making this fabulous cheesecake. Question – when you talk about Oreo crumbs, do you mean with or without the filling? Thanks!

  46. Hi can I substitute whipped cream wf sour cream? Thx

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      I haven’t tried it, but I’d think the texture would still be fine. The taste will be a little different though.

  47. Eden Lopez says:

    Hi,
    I am trying this recipe. It is setting now in the fridge.
    I see some no bake cheesecake has gelatine… but I noticed yours don’t have. Does it set firmly?

    Thanks and Regards from Abu Dhabi
    Eden

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      Hi Eden, yes it sets very firmly. I chose not to do a gelatin based cheesecake because I wanted to make sure I maintained that creamy cheesecake texture. I hope you like it!

  48. Hi there! Im trying your recipe right now and the cheesecake has been setting in the fridge now for 5 hrs. But when i touched it, its not setting hard. Did i do something wrong here or it just needs a little more time in the fridge? Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe! Cant wait to try it.

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      Hi Lyana! Did it ever set for you? It’s hard to say if you did anything wrong or not. Did you use Cool Whip or homemade whipped cream?

  49. Hi
    Can i leave out the cool whip entirely?

  50. Hi, I chanced upon your blog by accident and wow, I love it! Your no-bake oreo cheesecake looks so tempting and irresistible! Besides, you have a very fabulous and beautiful blog. Love it too! Thanks for sharing your great recipes. You have a nice day and cheers :)

  51. Is this use hand whisk or use machine ?

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      The cream cheese mixture is pretty thick, so you’ll probably want to use a machine.

  52. zefang TANG says:

    Hi!
    I would like to know, how long can we keep in the fridge?
    And can i put them in a cupcake holder instead of A pan?
    If we were to put them in a cupcake holder, how long do we need to refrigerate?

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      4-5 days is probably best. I haven’t made them in cupcake for before, but it would probably work fine.

      • Hi! Thanks ! I have already made them! But i used 30 grams less whipped cream and the whipped cream is store bought. Should be fine right ?

        • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

          Yea, that should work fine. I hope you enjoyed them!

          • but after it melted, its not firm like a cake! where did i go wrong?

          • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

            The cheesecake would stay firm in the fridge. If you let it sit out, it will soften.

          • zefang TANG says:

            Okay! Thanks! All my friends love it although it had soften!
            Thanks for introducing this recipe! I have tried to make cheesecake but always fail so thanks !

  53. Valerie says:

    Heya I’m a virgin at baking so I hope you can help me out a little :)

    1. So may I know if the butter should be salted or unsalted?
    2. The cup used to measure, is it universal size? Can I buy from baking store?
    3. Do you mean Vanilla powder or essence?

    Thanks so much
    Love from Singapore!

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      1. I use salted. 2. It’s a standard size here in the U.S., usually about 8 oz. 3. Vanilla extract. I hope that helps!

  54. charlize says:

    some ingredients are by cup.. can I know how big the cup should be? Like 200ml?

  55. Do you have to use a spring form pan or will a normal 9in cake pan work? I’m on a tight budget and unsure I can afford a spring form pan

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      You can use a regular pan, it just might be difficult to get the whole cheesecake out. You can slice it right in the pan though, if you want.

  56. Do I have to have vanilla??

  57. Hi Lindsay! Love your cheese cake so much, sharing on my FB page and pinning…..so glad that I stopped by your wonderful space.

  58. Wow! This is a wonderful recipe. I am not sure I would be able to resist this oreo cheesecake if I was in the same room. Why would I want to, anyway! I love vanilla, but, I have been experimenting with Rose syrup lately. I wonder how that would taste? Would love to know what your think. Thank for a great recipe.

  59. Hello, I tried following your recipe! For the whipping cream, i followed the recipe for your homemade whipped cream. At first the cream thickened, however aft I added vanilla extract, it because watery and there were lumps. The more i beat, the more watery it gets. Do you know why or how to fix this issue?

    I would also like to ask what happens if i exclude the whip cream in this recipe? Thank you.

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      Hmm, that’s never happened for me before. I know the higher speed I whip it at, the faster it thickens. You could try adding up to 1/2 cup of powdered sugar to thicken it. An alternative to homemade whipped cream is Cool Whip, if you have access to it. The whipped cream breaks up the thicken cream cheese a bit and fluffs it up. You could leave it out, but the cream cheese taste would be pretty strong.

  60. Loved the receipe, chilled mine for over 5 hours, used fresh hand whipped cream, and mixed it up creatively using the white fluff of the oreo for the first level to the cheesecake on the base :) mine was a massive size XD

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Adding the oreo filling to the whipped cream sounds delicious!

  61. I do exactly as the recipe but my cake couldn’t set. We did put in freezer for few hours,it doesnt set too. :(

  62. My sister and I just tried this recipe and oh my goodness, we are so in love with it!

    We did tweak it a tiny bit by using peanut butter oreos and making a peanut butter whipped cream (my family is a little peanut butter crazy), we also made them cupcake sized so we could make them a little more portable for when we go to uni (it made 18 cupcakes if you’re wondering)

    We just put them in the fridge to set but had a sneaky taste of the batter and it tasted incredible! Thank you so much for posting this recipe, we were thrilled with the result, very easy to make :) xx

  63. Hi! I’ve been looking for a recipe of this without me needing to bake so it would be less hassle. :D
    And then I landed on your site. Oh, gah! This is so mouth watering and I’ll definitely try this. :”>
    And I just wanna ask if you have an easy step procedure in making chocolate balls? I would love to learn that, too. Thanks! :)

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      I hope you enjoy the cheesecake! What type of chocolate balls are you looking to make? Truffles? Cake balls/pops?

      • Oh, I would. :D Still can’t find time to do it, though. My studies eats a lot of my time. :( Anyway, I don’t know the difference between those two. Kindly enlighten me. Thank you so much! And I prefer a cheaper one. Hehe.

  64. Heyy.. thank you for this delicious recipe… im going to try it tomorrow itself!!
    Just wanted to know if i must use gelatin powder to set the cheesecake, since i usually do tht for my strawberry cheesecake?
    If not, how will this cheesecake set ? is 4 hrs refrigeration enough ?

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      I didn’t use any gelatin. The cheesecake should be thick enough on its own. You could certainly add some gelatin, if you prefer.
