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.

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?

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.

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!

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.
