No Bake Oreo Cheesecake – A delicious no bake cheesecake made with an oreo crust, oreo cheesecake filling, whipped topping, and crushed oreos all layered into one tasty dessert!
No Bake Oreo Cheesecake
I think there is one thing that most people can agree on – oreos are pretty dang great. Whether you are a fan of classic oreos, you are a golden oreo kind of person, or you are into all of the fun flavors like lemon or red velvet, there is an oreo for everyone. After making a classic oreo cheesecake a few years back, I had been wanting to try making an easier version that was no bake. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a classic baked cheesecake but honestly, I have messed them up enough times that I tend to make no bake cheesecakes instead now most of the time. They taste great and are done so much faster with less work!
Now this recipe has 4 layers of yumminess in it – an oreo crust, oreos cheesecake filling, whipped topping, and crushed oreos. I though about stopping after the oreo cheesecake filling but alas, it needed more oreos! I got away with using a family sized pack of oreos with just a few to spare but if you only have a regular sized pack of oreos, don’t worry too much if you have to cut a few out of each step of the recipe. As for whipped topping, you can either use cool whip or homemade whipped cream. I prefer the taste of homemade whipped cream so that’s what I used but if you aren’t going to eat it immediately, then use cool whip. It will hold it’s shape better.
