Why You'll Love This Recipe

  • No Bake - I love the ease of a no-bake cheesecake, especially during the summer months.
  • Full of Chocolate - who doesn't love chocolate?! This no bake chocolate cheesecake has chocolate in the crust, in the Oreo cheesecake filling, and in the Oreos that are in the filling and on top! If you're a huge fan of chocolate, be sure to check out my Cake Mix Chocolate Cookies and Brown Butter Brownies!
  • Make Ahead Dessert - this dessert needs to be prepped ahead of time, which makes it great for a big gathering where you don't want to be assembling or preparing a dessert. If you love make ahead desserts, check out my No Bake Peanut Butter Pie, too!


Oreos - I love the addition of crunchy Oreos to this creamy chocolate cheesecake filling. I also love Oreos in my Peanut Butter Oreo Pie or No Bake Strawberry Oreo Pie.

Butter - melted butter is used in the crust.

Cream Cheese - a whopping 24 ounces of cream cheese in the cheesecake filling makes it super creamy and decadent.

Powdered Sugar - sweetens up the cheesecake filling.

Cocoa Powder - this deepens the flavor of chocolate in the chocolate cheesecake filling.

Semi-Sweet Chocolate - melted semisweet chocolate chips are beat into the cream cheese mixture for even more chocolate flavor.

Vanilla Extract - I love the warm flavor that vanilla extract adds to the filling.

Please refer to the recipe card for the complete list of ingredients.


Different Cookie - you can swap Oreos for really any chopped cookies that you want. You could do Thin Mints during Girl Scout cookie season, Chips Ahoy for a chocolate chip cookie version, or even a seasonal Oreo like peanut butter Oreos or birthday cake Oreos.

Graham Cracker Crust - if you prefer, you could make this using a graham cracker crust for cheesecakes.

Cool Whip - if you want to cut down on prep steps, you can use a container of Cool Whip instead of making your own homemade whipped cream.

Different Extract - instead of vanilla extract, you could use coconut extract or peppermint extract for a fun variation.

Expert Tips

Be sure you let your cream cheese warm up to room temperature before starting this recipe. This will ensure it's softened enough to combine thoroughly with the other ingredients.

Start with very cold heavy whipping cream before you whip it. I like to put my bowl in the freezer for 15 minutes so even the bowl is cold.

Full Fat Cream Cheese - I wouldn't recommend making this with anything but full-fat cream cheese! The lower fat cream cheese won't set up as well due to a higher water content.

Springform Pan - I highly recommend using a springform pan for this no bake cheesecake, as it makes it MUCH easier to get out of the pan and cut into slices. In addition, a normal sized pie dish will be too small for the amount of crust and filling.

Storage - store leftover cheesecake covered in the refrigerator for up to 6-7 days. You can also store it in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Serving Suggestions - this is delicious served as written. You can also top it with various things like fluffy whipped cream, raspberry or strawberry preserves, or a drizzle of chocolate or caramel sauce.

Recipe FAQs

Can I use Cool Whip instead of homemade whipped cream?

Yes! You can easily swap Cool Whip for homemade whipped cream in this recipe. I would recommend using one 8 ounce container

How do you crush up Oreos?

For the Oreos in the crust, I use a food processor so they become coarse crumbs. For the filling and topping, you can either chop up the Oreos with a knife or put them in a Ziploc bag and crush with a rolling pin.

What's the Difference Between Baked and No Bake Cheesecake?

Baked cheesecake has a filling made with cream cheese and eggs that is baked to set up. No Bake cheesecake does not have eggs and the filling sets up after some time in the refrigerator.
