I love spending time with my kids in the kitchen. It’s truly the heartbeat of most houses, and ours is no exception. Easy, no bake cheesecake recipes are a great way to mix up a delicious recipe without spending too much time on the recipe.

Now that the warmer weather is here, heating up the kitchen isn’t always an option. This no bake cookies and cream cheesecake is super easy and can be done in a single afternoon. It’s a perfect classy dessert for any party or gathering. With a light texture and creamy filling, it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser!

Of course, keeping the kids from trying to eat all the Oreos is the most difficult part. But, isn’t that part of the fun of childhood? I have to hide Oreos anytime we have them in the house (from Levi AND Josh!).

Need other recipes to try with the kids?

To make the cookies and cream no bake cheesecake:

First, gather your supplies. Separate a package and a half of the Oreos and scrape out the white center into a mixing bowl. Add the cookies to a food processor.(this is great for the kids to help with)

Add cream cheese and sugar with the cookie center and mix until smooth.  Break up the rest of the Oreos into the mixing bowl, add cool whip and stir to combine. In the food processor, process the cookies until they are a fine texture. Gradually add the butter until it becomes a wet sand consistency. You may NOT need all the butter.

How to store this no bake cheesecake?

I personally prefer to store it in the freezer and thaw it one hour before serving. You can store it in the fridge but I would recommend the freezer for the best consistency!
