Easy No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

I truly love Oreos. Those classic sandwich cookies have my heart and it is my intention to find as many ways to incorporate them into fun desserts as possible. This updated no bake Oreo cheesecake is one of my favorites because it combines two of my favorite things – Oreos and cheesecake.

In this crowd-pleasing dessert, a slightly crunchy Oreo crust is topped with a creamy cheesecake filling that is absolutely packed with Oreo flavor. The whole thing is finished off with a light, fluffy whipped cream topping and a smattering of Oreo crumbles. Yum! And, just like all of my other no bake cheesecakes, there is no baking involved. Although you can bake the crust, if you like. I find that helps the crust hold its shape a little better during cutting. As much as I love my Best Oreo Cheesecake, the no bake aspect of this dessert makes preparing a cheesecake less daunting and much more time efficient.

What You’ll Need

You basically need a lot of Oreos…and a few other things too. But it’s far less than it’s baked counterpart. Here is the list of ingredients needed to make no bake Oreo cheesecake. Scroll to the recipe below for detailed measurements.

For the crust

  • Oreo crumbs – I suggest using classic Oreos here, but you could also play with other flavors. Leave the cream filling in the Oreo when you crush them. I’d avoid double stuf or similar ones with more filling. If using those, you would need to just the amount of butter.
  • Butter – Melted. Salted or unsalted would work.

For the filling

  • Cream cheese – The cream cheese must be at room temperature. If it is too cold, it will not incorporate well with the other ingredients, leaving you with a clumpy filling.
  • Sugar – Granulated sugar is best here.
  • Vanilla extract – For flavor.
  • Heavy whipping cream – The whipping cream must be cold. If it is too warm it will not hold volume or whip as well.
  • Powdered sugar – Do not try to use a different kind of sugar here, the filling will fall flat.
  • Oreo crumbs – I used traditional Oreos here, but feel free to play around with your favorite version of the sandwich cookie.
  • Chopped Oreos – You could also play around with different flavors here.

For the whipped cream topping

  • Heavy whipping cream – If the whipping cream is not cold, it will not hold volume as well, making it difficult to achieve the correct consistency for the whipped cream.
  • Powdered sugar – This stabilizes the whipped cream. Don’t leave it out.
  • Vanilla extract – For flavor.
  • Oreo crumbs – Again, feel free to play around with your favorite Oreo flavors.
  • Oreos – For decorating.

This no bake Oreo cheesecake is super simple to put together without having to bake it. And it comes together so quickly. Scroll to the recipe below for more detailed instructions.

Tips for Making No Bake Cheesecakes

Yes, I have tips and tricks for you! Follow these gems of cheesecake wisdom to your perfect no bake Oreo confection.

  • Use a drinking glass. You can use your hands but you will achieve a firmer, more consistent crust if you use the bottom of a glass to press the crust into the bottom of the pan.
  • Line the bottom of the springform pan with parchment paper. You will thank me for it later. This makes it so much easier to remove the cake from the pan when it’s time to serve.
  • Start with room-temperature cream cheese. It will incorporate with the other ingredients more easily than would cold cream cheese, helping you avoid a clumpy cheesecake filling.
  • Don’t skimp on powdered sugar. When making the whipped cream mixture for the cheesecake filling and topping, it is important to use the prescribed amount of powdered sugar. The sugar stabilizes the whipped mixture, which is important in ensuring that your cake doesn’t fall flat.
  • Fold gently. When folding the whipped cream into the cheesecake filling, work slowly and gently to ensure that you maintain as much volume as possible.
  • Sub in Cool Whip. Although making your own whipped cream is always preferable, if you are short on time, you can use Cool Whip in the cheesecake portion and/or the topping portion of this dessert.

Can I Make This in a Pie Plate?

You can, but you’ll want to reduce the Oreo crust to the pie measurements in my crust recipe. You’ll also want to cut the filling in half. Otherwise you’ll have too much.

What Kind of Cream Cheese Do I Use?

You’ll want to use full fat brick-style cream cheese. Cream cheese in a tub will end up too soft. Reduced fat cream cheese can be a bit of a gamble because it can end up giving you a softer filing. Go for the good stuff and grab the full fat cream cheese.

Do I Remove The Filling From The Oreos?

No, there’s no need to remove the filling from the Oreos. In the crust, it helps hold everything together. In fact, if you remove it, you would need to add a little additional butter. And in the filling, it adds to the great Oreo flavor!

How to Store Leftovers

If you find yourself with leftovers, cover the cheesecake with plastic wrap or store it in an air-tight container. It will keep in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.

Can I Freeze No Bake Cheesecake?

Yes, you can! Well, almost. Save the whipped cream topping for when you are ready to serve but feel free to wrap the un-topped dessert in 2 layers of plastic wrap and store it in the freezer for up to 3 months. When you are ready to enjoy the cake, allow it to thaw in the refrigerator overnight before topping with whipped cream and Oreos.
