Hello Oreo cheesecake! If you’re firmly in the no bake cheesecake camp, this no bake Oreo cheesecake is just the thing for you. They’re creamy, chocolatey, and just plain good. If you love cookies and cream, you’ll love these bars. I love them so much that I always quarter the recipe so it only makes four bars. Even so, I think I ate the whole batch in just under two days, which kind of defeats the purpose, but it is what it is.

Do you love Oreos? Cookies and cream ice cream is one of my favorites! I like the way the black and white cookies mixed into ice cream and as a kid I would always get cookies and cream blizzards at Dairy Queen.

I am obsessed with Oreos. We even buy the weird flavors, just so I can try them (I love it when the pumpkin spice ones come out!). Mike’s more of a classic Oreo guy, but I love all the seasonal varieties. Anyway, we’ve gone through several bags of Oreos during the pandemic. I kept saying that I wanted to make no bake Oreo cheesecake and earmarked cookies just for that purpose, but always ended up eating them all straight out of the package.

Sidenote, isn’t it weird that one of America’s most popular cookies is not really makeable at home? I mean I did try to make Oreos once but they didn’t really turn out the same. It’s a good thing that Oreos lend themselves so well to being made into other baked goods. I love watching TikToks with deep fried Oreos, Oreo mug cakes, and Oreo donuts.

What is no bake cheesecake?

No bake cheesecake is a unbaked cheesecake. Instead, it sets by using either gelatin, or in this case, whipping cream. It’s perfect because you don’t have to turn on your oven and it’s really easy to make. This oreo cheesecake is super simple with a base of cream cheese and heavy whipping cream. You set it in the freezer and it settles into a creamy kind of ice cream texture. I love it frozen, but you can defrost it in the fridge and it tastes just like regular cheesecake.

How to make no bake Oreo cheesecake

It’s really simple: crush up some Oreos and mix with melted butter for the base of the cheesecake. The cheesecake itself is whipped room temperature cream cheese, heavy cream, sugar, and crushed Oreos. That’s it! The most time you spend on this is waiting for the cheesecake to set. Quick and easy and perfect for quarantine “baking.”

No bake Oreo cheesecake ingredients

The best part about this recipe – aside that you don’t even have to turn the oven on – is that the ingredient list is so short. All you need is:

  • Oreos
  • Butter
  • Cream cheese
  • Heavy cream or sour cream
  • Vanilla
  • Sugar

PS – The recipe card is for a full batch of no bake oreo cheesecake in an 8×8 pan. I put the small batch recipe in the notes section :)

    Oh my this looks so good. Oreos and cookies and cream are my favorite! What size is your small square pan? I’m trying to figure out if any of my pans will work for this small batch recipe.

    1. Stephanie says:

      hi carolyn, sorry for the late reply! the small pan is 4.75 inches. i’ve made it in a small loaf pan too, but it just ends up taller :)

  2. Pamelyn says:

    Can I substitute heavy cream with other ingredients or just add more cream cheese? Thanks!

    1. Stephanie says:

      hi pamelyn,
      the heavy cream helps lighten it up. you can use cool whip or half and half :)

    This is something that I make periodically at my work although it’s in larger batches instead of using heavy whipping cream just use Cool whip. It’s already prepared the way you need it and it will last in the freezer longer depending on the size of container you purchase. Also if you have a good processor, it makes prepping the crust easier

    This is just so awesome….. But, can the amount of cream cheese be reduced?

    1. Stephanie says:

      hi,
      unfortunately no because it’s a huge flavor component!

    I made this but instead of heavy cream I used sour cream. It came out soooo good,

    1. Stephanie says:

      hi chrissy,
      oooh sour cream would add so much tangy flavor!! :D

    2. Yen says:

      Hi do you use the same amount of sour cream to substitute heavy cream?

      1. Stephanie says:

        hi yen,
