We love making this No Bake Oreo Cheesecake recipe year-round, but it definitely appears on our table several times throughout the summer. It is the perfect way to enjoy a cheesecake without the added hassle of heating the oven and baking it. This cool and creamy treat is simply irresistible!
The silky smooth filling is loaded with crushed Oreos spread over a homemade Oreo crust. The whole thing comes together in 20 minutes. The hardest part is waiting for it to chill in the refrigerator.
This is another great recipe to have the kiddos help you make. They can help crush the Oreos and make the filling. You will love how easy this No Bake Oreo Cheesecake is to make. And we know you will love the taste too!

Recipe Variations and Substitutions
- You can use a store-bought pre-made Oreo crust instead of making one, although we prefer the homemade version. If you use a store-bought crust, then you will want to cut the filling ingredients in half.
- Sometimes we like adding a layer of hot fudge to the top of the No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake.
- You can use low-fat cream cheese, but please don’t use fat-free cream cheese.
- Instead of whipping heavy cream, you can use a container of Cool Whip. Make sure you use only 1/2 cup of powdered sugar in the filling.
Serve: You can keep this cheesecake at room temperature for about an hour before you will need to pop it back into the refrigerator.
Store: Cover the Oreo cheesecake and store it in the refrigerator for 5-7 days.
Freeze: Cover the cheesecake in two layers of plastic wrap and two layers of foil. Freeze for up to 2 months stored this way. Thaw for 30-60 minutes at room temperature before serving.
Your cheesecake may not be firm enough yet due to not letting it chill long enough in the refrigerator. Be sure to let it chill for at least 5 hours to have enough time to set up. It is tempting to take it out early but don’t do it!
If your filling is not thick enough, it is most likely due to the whipping cream not being whipped enough. Beat the heavy whipping cream into soft peaks. Then when you add it to the mixture, be sure to fold it in gently. This will help keep the filling thick and creamy.
Get Kids Involved
Ages 2-3: Have your little one help crush up the Oreos to use for the crust and the pie filling.
Ages 4-5: Your child can help mix the filling ingredients together. They can then spread it over the crust.
Ages 6-8: Let your child mix the cookie crumbs with the butter. Then have him/her press it into the springform pan.
Ages 9-11: Supervise them while they prepare the entire recipe. Remember to have them read it twice before beginning the recipe.
Ages 12+: Let them prepare the entire recipe, unsupervised, while you do the happy dance in the corner!
Of course, the prices vary by brand but generally speaking, you cannot purchase a pre-made Oreo Cheesecake from a grocery store for less than $15.00. You can make this cheesecake from scratch for less than that and save a few dollars on your grocery budget. And we all know that every dollar counts!
