No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake

With one package of Oreos going into the crust, it’s no surprise I kept sampling sliver after sliver. Not one to ever be tempted by an Oreo cookie, an Oreo crust can’t be beat. By garnishing with some mini Oreos and whipping cream, the Oreo theme is complete.

Chocolate Cheesecake

There’s no shortage of chocolate in this No-Bake Cheesecake. First, check out the tall Oreo crust, chocolate element number one. Then there is a luscious layer of chocolate ganache between the crust and the cheesecake filling. Plus, another layer on top of the cheesecake. The actual cheesecake is flavored with vanilla but speckled with mini chocolate chips. Chocolate element number 5 is the mini Oreos circling the perimeter. Yup, you have plenty of chocolate in this No-Bake Cheesecake Recipe!

How to Make a No-Bake Cheesecake

Obviously, no-bake cheesecakes are not baked. Since they do not contain eggs, nor flour, there is no need for baking. 

  • First, make a crust of melted butter and either graham cracker crumbs or cookie crumbs. Often, sugar is added to the mix. This is pressed into the pan called for in the recipe. A springform pan is nice as the sides are easily released which preserves the integrity of the cheesecake.
  • Chill to solidify the melted butter, and give the cheesecake some stability.
  • Next, create the cheesecake filling. The cream cheese must be at room temperature so that it will mix up smooth and creamy.
  • Typically, heavy cream is whipped and folded into the cream cheese mixture. Folding is a process of gently lifting and folding (or flipping) over the mixture so that the batter stays light. It’s a circular motion done with a rubber spatula.
  • Food colorings, flavors, or add-ins can be mixed into the cheesecake mixture. This no-bake cheesecake recipe called for mini chocolate chips.
  • The cheesecake batter is added to the crust, then the top is smoothed with an offset spatula. The cheesecake should be chilled before serving.

How Long Does a No-Bake Cheesecake Last in the Refrigerator?

A no-bake cheesecake is safe in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. Though the garnishes, like mini Oreos, may soften before day 5.

Can a No-Bake Cheesecake Be Frozen?

Yes, both regular and no-bake cheesecakes freeze well. Once chilled, wrap in plastic wrap, then foil and freeze up to 3 months. Keeping the cheesecake in the springform pan will protect the cheesecake in the freezer. If sliced into serving-sized pieces before freezing, individual wedges can be removed and defrosted for dessert.
