This Chocolate Oreo Cheesecake is absolutely incredible. This recipe is so easy to put together and the ingredients fit so well together to create a gorgeous display of layered chocolate and cheesecake. This recipe tastes magnificent with a creamy texture and chocolatey rich flavor.

  • Butter – Use unsalted to control the amount of salt in the recipe.
  • Cream cheese – You will need to use at room temp or softened.
  • Sugar- Every great dessert uses sugar in the recipe.
  • Vanilla- Use pure vanilla for the best flavoring.

When cooled, evenly spread the Cool Whip mixture over the cheesecake.
Put another 6 Oreos in a Ziploc bag and sprinkle onto the Cool Whip. Put the cheesecake into the fridge until you serve, or overnight to have the best results.
When you get ready to serve, slice into 2×3 inch pieces and put 1 full Oreo into the center of the bar.

Is This a No Bake Dessert Recipe?

No this is not a no-bake dessert. There are different baking parts to create this dessert. I do have a few no bake recipes that are similar like  No Bake Chocolate Lasagna  and Chocolate Mint Cheesecake Mousse {No-Bake}

Can I Make This With Low-Fat Cream Cheese?

While this recipe does not call for low fat cream cheese, you can certainly use low fat cream cheese in place of full fat. You can also use fat free Greek yogurt too.

Notes

NOTES: Make sure you set your cream cheese out to soften, about 45 minutes before you're ready to make the dessert. I open the packages when I remove them from the refrigerator, before they're soft, as it's easier to open when they're still firm. Just sit them out on the counter, and they will soften right on the foil package, and there' no mess. ALSO, place the tub of Cool Whip in the refrigerator at the same time. This will allow the Cool Whip time to thaw, and it will be fluffy, and billowy when you're ready to use it. You can definitely make this dessert the day before, and leave it in the refrigerator until time to serve.
Regarding the Greek Yogurt; you can use any brand you prefer, but, I used 'THE GREEK GODS GREEK YOGURT'. It's really thick and rich and creamy, and did wonderfully in the cheesecake.
Makes 12 - 15 servings
