How To Make Oreo Cheesecake
Step 1: How to Make Oreo Cheesecake Crust
The first step in this cookies and cream, cheesecake recipe is the crust. To make the crust, lightly grease the edges of a 9 inch spring-form pan with non stick cooking spray. Next, line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.
Then crush up the oreo cookies. After that, put the butter into a small bowl and microwave it for 3o to 45 seconds. Pour the butter into your cookie crumbs and stir it together until the crumbs are well covered. Once you’ve completed that, press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan and up the sides making a thick crust. When you’re satisfied with your crust put it in the fridge and let it chill while you make the filling.
Step 2: How To Make Oreo Cheesecake Filling
The next step in this no bake oreo cheesecake recipe is making the filling. Start by using a microwave-safe bowl to melt the white chocolate in the microwave. Make sure that your microwave is on 50% power ,and heat it for 30 second increments. Stir the chocolate between each 30-second interval until it is smooth and melted. After that, stir it until it’s nice and smooth.
Place your mixing bowl and whisk in the freezer for ten minutes. Tip: You can do this before you melt your chocolate so you’ll be ahead of the game. Chilling your bowl will help you make the whipped cream faster. Once it’s chilled put your heavy whipping cream into the bowl and beat it until thickened. Next, slowly add in the powdered sugar until you get stiff peaks.
Set the whipped cream aside ,and beat the softened cream cheese until it’s smooth. Scrape the sides of your bowl so no chunks of cream cheese get stuck on the side. Add the sugar and vanilla and continue mixing until smooth. Next, add in the white chocolate and mix it together with the cream cheese until it is combined.
Finally, to finish up the no bake cookies and cream cheesecake filling, mix in the whipped cream. You’ll need to do this in two batches. This will make the cheesecake so creamy it almost melts in your mouth. Once it’s smooth, add in your crushed Oreos and stir again. Pour it into the crust, and spread evenly. Chill in the fridge for three to four hours before serving.
Step 3: How to Make the Oreo Cheesecake Topping
For the topping, we’re going to make another batch of whipped cream the same way we did for the filling. Remember to chill your mixing bowl and whisk Pipe the whipped cream onto the borders of the cake using a large open round tip. Garnish it with more crushed Oreos and hot fudge topping. The hot fudge is optional but I suggest using it so you can taste the full experience!
This oreo cheesecake recipe needs to stay refrigerated.
Can you use a premade oreo crust?
It’s not advised to use the premade crusts here sorry. 🙁 Most of the crusts you’ll find are for regular sized (8 inch) pies. This is going in the bottom of a nine inch spring-form pan so the filling would likely overflow. For best results make your own.
Can you use Cool Whip instead of whipped cream?
There is no reason you can’t substitute cool whip for the whipped cream. If you’re in a hurry go ahead and use the Cool Whip.
Can you make this into individual cheesecakes?
That is a great idea! Maybe you’d like to have small individual cakes for a party? One of the best ideas is to use a small jar. You can find them in all sorts of sizes. Pick the one you want and fill them as you would the spring-form pan. Chill them and serve when ready.

Dip your knife into the hot water and then cut the cheesecake, Be sure to dip it into the water again after each cut. Don’t forget to clean the knife off each time before dipping i into the water.
