No Bake Oreo Cheesecake – Tips and Tricks

  • Don’t forget to thaw the Cool Whip! A 16-ounce container will need to sit in the refrigerator overnight to soften completely. 

    In a pinch, float the container in a bowl of cold water and check it after about an hour.
  • Soften cream cheese quickly. Place fully unwrapped blocks on a microwave safe plate and heat for about 30 seconds at 50% power.
  • Tip for easy slicing: Run a large knife under hot water, then dry completely.

    The metal will retain the heat, allowing it to glide through the no bake Oreo cheesecake for clean, even slices.
  • Want a stronger cookie flavor? Add up to 5 additional Oreos to the filling mixture without affecting the overall texture.
  • Salt vs no salt. I like to add some to cut the sweetness and enhance the flavors, but it’s completely optional.

Decorating Ideas

Add some swirls of whipped cream around the outside of the Oreo cookie cheesecake and press in halved or mini sandwich cookies for an extra fancy touch.

Maraschino cherries can create a pop of color or simply sprinkle extra crushed up Oreos all over the top!

Whatever you choose, I recommend adding it just before serving so the texture doesn’t change in the refrigerator.

FAQ – Common Recipe Questions

How long will this dessert last in the refrigerator?

Keep it tightly covered or transfer to an airtight container and use within 3 days. It’s normal for the crust to soften significantly after the first day or so.

Can I make no bake oreo cheesecake in a pie dish?

Absolutely! Simply reduce the crust ingredients to 20 cookies, 4 tablespoons butter, and ¼ teaspoon salt and cut all of the filling ingredients in half (using up to 10 cookies).

Measurements for the ganache will stay the same.

How do I make a cheesecake with Oreo crust that doesn’t go up the sides?

Use the same crust ratios for making it in a pie dish, then press it evenly along the bottom of the springform pan.

Can I use different types of Oreos for this No Bake Oreo Cheesecake recipe? 

Absolutely! You can use golden Oreos, red velvet Oreos, birthday cake Oreos, or any other type that you want for this easy dessert. This is why it’s a great option for Oreo lovers! 

You can also use varied sizes of Oreos like mini Oreos! Great recipes like this are versatile. 

Can I add different toppings to this perfect make-ahead dessert? 

You bet! I like to cover the whole cheesecake with fun toppings and flavors.

Melted chocolate, regular Oreos, Oreo crumbs, crushed Oreos, chocolate chips, homemade whipped cream….you name it! 

One of my favorite things about the entire recipe is that you can cover the whole thing in fun and sweet toppings. The hardest part of this no bake recipe is trying to slow down and figure out what you want to do! 

I say, to make the perfect cheesecake recipe, add what you want. And then the next time, you can change it up and try something new – and maybe add even more Oreos! Just start stocking up on Oreo cookies from the grocery store now because you’re going to want to put them all over the entire cheesecake! 

Can I turn this into mini Oreo cheesecakes? 

Sure, why not? Mini cheesecakes would be made with the same ingredients as this simple Oreo cheesecake recipe, you’d just need to make the no bake dessert in a muffin tin or mini cheesecake pan! You’ll likely need more fine crumbs possibly to make more of the perfect Oreo cookie crust – but besides that, you should be good to go to turn this no bake cheesecake recipe into smaller cheesecakes.

This would be a super fun idea for the summer months or a birthday party where everyone can enjoy their own serving. It’s sure to get rave reviews no matter how you make it!

Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 6 hours 30 minutes
Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Method No Bake
Servings 12



  • 28 Oreos
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, option


  • 16 ounces cream cheese, full fat only
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 16 ounces Cool Whip, thawed
  • 15 Oreos, crushed
  • Ganache, optional
  • 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream



  • Add the 28 Oreos for the crust to a food processor and pulse until fine crumbs form. Add in the melted butter and salt and pulse until combined.
  • Transfer the crust mixture to a 10-inch springform pan and press evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the pan. I find that a flat bottomed and sided drinking glass helps with this.
  • In a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and salt until light and fluffy.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and fold in the cool whip followed by the crushed Oreos and mix until combined and hardly any white streaks remain. The mixture will have a grayish tint to it.
  • Transfer the filling to the crust and spread out evenly and gently.
  • Add the chocolate chips and heavy cream to a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 45 seconds, whisk together the ganache, microwaving for an additional 15 seconds, if needed for the chocolate to fully melt. Let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  • Pour the cooled ganache over the top of the cheesecake filling then refrigerate for at least 6 hours before slicing and serving.
  • Top with whipped cream and Oreos for garnish, if desired.

  1. Too many Oreo cookies. I eliminated the ones in the filling and added blueberries instead. Or maybe some peanut butter. I also eliminated the ones on top as garnish.

  2. Sounds delicious! If I wanted to use the Oreo pie crusts as a shortcut, would this mixture fill two? Seems like a lot of Cool Whip for one, so I was thinking there might be enough mixture for two pie crusts. Thanks!

  3. 5 stars
    Oops! Sorry! I just saw your comment above about cutting the filling ingredients in half for one pie crust! Perfect! If/when I make this I will fill two Oreo pie crusts. I also imagine this would be great in s 9×13 with an Oreo crust. Thanks, again!
