No-Bake Cheesecake Recipes
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 go to for your family.
Of course, keeping the kids from trying to eat all the Oreos is the most difficult part of making a cookies and cream cheesecake with little helpers.
But, isn’t that part of the fun of childhood? Getting to lick the spoon and sneak a cookie or two? I have to hide Oreos anytime we have them in the house (from Levi AND Josh!).
How To Make Cookies and Cream Cheesecake 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 step 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.
How to Make Oreo Crust for Cheesecake
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, so pay attention to how it looks as you add it.
Putting Together Your Oreo Cheesecake
Press the cookie and butter mixture into the bottom of the greased cheesecake pan firmly. Pour the batter from the mixing bowl over the crust and smooth out. Chill for 3 hours.
Top with frosting swirls, kisses, Oreos and other chopped candy bar pieces. Freeze for an additional hour after topping to help it set up.
That’s it! You now have a delicious and easy no-bake cookies and cream cheesecake that your family will love. Enjoy!
Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Variations
The best part about this recipe is that you can easily customize it to your liking. Add more or less Oreos, change the type of frosting or add chocolate chips on top. Here are a few more ideas for your cheesecake topping:
- Chopped malted milk balls candy
- Mini chocolate chips
- White chocolate shavings
- Caramel sauce
- Hot fudge sauce
- Chopped chocolate covered pretzels
The sky’s really the limit when we’re talking chocolate!
How to Store No Bake Cheesecake
I personally prefer to store my cheesecakes in the freezer and thaw them one hour before serving. You can store it in the fridge but I would recommend the freezer for the best consistency!
To make sure it stays fresh, make sure you cover it tightly with plastic wrap, then aluminum foil. It’ll keep in the freezer for up to two months, and in the fridge for up to a week.
No Bake Cookies and Cream Cheesecake is a delicious dessert that you can enjoy any time of the year. Make this decadent treat in just 30 minutes from start to finish.
Head into the kitchen, gather your supplies and get started on a cookies n cream dessert that chocolate lovers won’t be able to resist!
