No Bake Oreo Cheesecake
This No Bake Oreo Cheesecake is made with an Oreo crust and no bake cheesecake packed with both Oreo crumbs and chunks of Oreo! It’s made with homemade whipped cream (no Cool Whip here!) for a cheesecake that will make all your Oreo dreams come true!
I am a sucker for all things Oreo. There’s nothing quite like the chocolatey cookies and delicious filling and when you stick them in an easy no bake cheesecake. The cookies get soft, but maintain some texture, and the crumbs just fill the filling with all kinds of Oreo flavor.
And who doesn’t love a good no bake dessert – especially a No Bake Oreo Cheesecake?! This cheesecake is pretty much foolproof with both a crust and filling that are no bake. All in all, this baby has more than one full package of Oreos. Oreo heaven!
So how do you make a No Bake Oreo Cheesecake?
To start, you’ll make the crust. ALLLLL Oreos and a little bit of butter. No need to remove the filling of Oreo, it all goes into the crust. All that delicious filling goodness goes right in there. Press the crust into the bottom of the pan and part way up the sides. I like to use a glass cup with a sharp edge to press the crust down and into the corners to get a solid crust.
One other tip is that I always line the bottom of my springform pan with parchment paper. It makes it much easier to remove the cheesecake from the pan bottom later and put in on a nice serving platter.
Put the crust into the fridge to firm up while you make the filling.
For the filling, you’ll start with your cream cheese, which should be room temperature. That’s pretty important here because you don’t want to have lumps in your filling. Add some sugar and vanilla extract and mix until it’s all combined and smooth.
Next up is the whipped cream. If you’ve ever made homemade whipped cream, then you know it’s way better than anything you buy in the store. Like WAY better. However, you can definitely use Cool Whip if you prefer or are in a hurry. Fold it into the cream cheese mixture until it’s all combined.
One thing I’ll note is that you want to be sure to use the full amount of powered sugar in the whipped cream. It stabilizes the whipped cream, and therefore adds to the stability of the cheesecake. If you reduce it, you’re cheesecake won’t be as firm.
Next is the yummiest part – adding the Oreos! We’ve got Oreo crumbs and chopped up Oreos in this No Bake Oreo Cheesecake for plenty of Oreo flavor! You could even add a few more chopped Oreos, if you’re feeling frisky!
Let the cheesecake firm up in the fridge for at least 4-5 hours. This is definitely a good dessert to make a night ahead.
To finish off the cheesecake, top with a little whipped cream and, of course, more Oreos! The final cheesecake is seriously a winner! Thick, creamy and FULL of Oreos!
