So a bit of housekeeping before I proceed. πŸ™‚ Monday night I switched over my email subscriptions to a new service. If you currently get my emails, you should have received a new email today. Instead of being generic and not super exciting, it should now be bright and fun. Yay!

I disabled the old email, so you *should* have only gotten one, but if you got a duplicate or had any other issues, please let me know so that I can fix it.

And if you aren’t subscribed to my emails, there are now two options. You can get emails every time I post something new, or once a week with all the new content for that week. If you’d like to, you can sign up to receive emails here.

Ok, moving on!

I’m pretty much the worst slow cooker user ever. Did you know that for a slow cooker to actually cook food you have to add food to it? I know, crazy right?

I have this problem where I constantly go off and forget to add the food so that it cooks while I’m at work. No matter how many times I do it, I keep doing it.

Last night I got home and realized that despite having set everything up the night before so that all I had to do was throw it in the pot before I left, I still forgot. I even put the cooker on the counter the night before with the liner. *shakes head*

Like I said, I’m a slow cooker failure. So I just threw everything in a pan and cooked it instead.

I’m always distracted in the mornings when trying to get my photos taken before I leave for work. That’s my problem. Too many distractions.

But can you blame me? With desserts like this No Bake Funfetti Cheesecake distracting me, what’s a girl to do?

One of my very favorite things is Funfetti. And not just any Funfetti, but cake batter flavor. Sprinkles alone won’t cut it.

In this cheesecake though, I decided not use an actual cake mix. Instead I used some butter and almond flavoring, which lends a cake batter flavor. It’s added to my usual base recipe for a no bake cheesecake.

I also used my very favorite Oreos – Golden Birthday Cake Oreos. They are the jam! I like them even better than the regular chocolate birthday cake Oreos. They make up the crust and every bite with the crust makes the cheesecake that much better. If you don’t have access to the Oreos though, you could substitute another vanilla cookie.

This cheesecake is made in a springform pan, which allows you to remove the sides of the pan when it’s done so that you have the nice cheesecake you see in the photos.

I explain that because a while ago, I got a call from my mom who was trying to find a dessert on my blog to make for some friends coming over. She was eyeing my No Bake Oreo Cheesecake, but didn’t know what a springform pan was. HA!

While I totally understand that not everyone knows what one is, but it makes me laugh that my own mom is one of those people. I totally gave her a hard time. She didn’t even have measuring spoons until I got her some for Christmas. Proof that when she says she doesn’t bake, she means it. She does cook though. And she cooks well. But she just adds some of this and some of that. No need to measure!

Of course after I explained what the springform pan was, her next question was, “Can I just use a pie pan?”

*face palm*

So if you’re wondering, this could be made in a pie pan. But if you have a springform pan, go with that. It turns out much prettier. I promise. πŸ˜‰

    I have a question: how many boxes of the cookies does 2 1/2 cups make? Also, is the remaining cool whip used for the frosting on top to decorate? Thank you, love this recipe!Β 

    1. Lindsay

      It should be roughly 25 oreos in 2 1/2 cups of crumbs and yes, the remaining cool whip is for decorating. I hope you enjoy it!

  2. Andrew

    I have a question.. When making this delicious dessert – do you use whole Oreos or just the cookie part without the cream?
    Thank you. πŸ™‚

    This is seriously amazing. And I have problems with slow cookers too. I pretty much avoid them for some reason.

  4. Julianne @ Beyond Frosting

    You really do suck at slow cookers and I am allowed to say that because of our friendship. In other news, this no-cake cheesecake is FABU-lous! I wish I had a slice!

  5. Beth @ bethcakes

    I do love my slow cooker, but I’ll take a cheesecake recipe any day! πŸ™‚ I am obsessed with funfetti so I will totally have to give this a try.

    Isn’t that a strange feeling to turn into an adult and suddenly be…better at something than your mom? What!? But don’t worry about the slow cooker. Even though I’m generally pretty good at it, I HAVE done the one where you turn it to the warm setting instead of low. Twice I’ve come home to a nice pot full of warm, rock hard beans. (sigh) Everyone does it, believe me.

  7. Jocelyn @BruCrew Life

    I love me a no bake cheesecake…especially one so pretty and full of sprinkles!!! This is gorgeous! And too funny about your mom and the pan…my mom would be the same way πŸ™‚

  8. Katelyn @munchie pie

    My mom can’t bake either! If she needs to bring a treat she always asks me to make something. This cheesecake is BEAUTIFUL! I love it! I have never heard of butter extract but I’m intrigued now… πŸ™‚

  9. Mir

    My mom can’t bake. I mean, she can, but it’s not easy for her, and she doesn’t own a fraction of the paraphernalia that I do. So I hear where you’re coming from!
    I’m a big fan of funfetti, especially with cake batter. This is a total winner!

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      Funny, right? My mom is convinced that her friends think she can bake because I can. She doesn’t like it, haha. πŸ™‚

      1. Terri Baranbo

        Hi, I want to make your no bake cheesecake with the sprinkles, but I cannot find butter extract. Where can I find it or what can I use in substitution?

        Thank you,
        Terri

      2. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

        I’m usually able to find it at my grocery store. And often if I can’t find an ingredient, Walmart will have it. If neither of those work, there’s always Amazon. πŸ™‚ But if you don’t want to deal with all that, you could just replace the extracts with vanilla. The goal of the butter and almond extracts is to give the cheesecake a little more of a cake batter flavor (which has butter), but vanilla will still make a great tasting cheesecake.

      3. Terri

        Thank you so much for your help, I’m in the process of making it now, for my baby boy who just turned 24. He’s not a big fan of cake yet his fav is funfetti and loves cheesecake. He’s going to be quite surprised!

    I actually am the worst slow cooker-er EVER too! I thought I was the only one!
    Let’s drown our sorrows in an extra slice of this AMAZING cheesecake mmkay? Cheesecake and Funfetti are my too fav things, so clearly I am obsessed with this. Pinned!

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      Glad to know I’m not alone! We can balance the cheesecake with your cookie dough breakfast bowl. πŸ˜‰ It’s all about balance!

    2. Sherri

      Try the Instant Pot!! We use ours constantly!!! It can do sooo many things. Our fav usage is for rice and meats that cook quickly and fall apart like nothing I’ve ever had!! The pressure cooker option is our most use bcuz of speed, ease of set up (throw it all in, let it go!), and how moist the food is. Waaaaay better than slow cooking (taste and speed), its the best and most used appliance in our house, other than the microwave (for reheating those awesome foods!)!!!
