How to Make No Bake Oreo Cheesecake
To start, place the Oreos into a food processor and pulse until the Oreos turn into fine crumbs. Then, put in the melted butter and salt and combine.
Secondly, use a flat bottom cup to press the crumbs into a 10-inch springform pan, and up the sides.
Thirdly, add the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and salt into a large bowl or standing mixer with a fitted paddle attachment and combine, until light and fluffy.
Next, using a spatula, fold in the Cool Whip. Then, add in the crushed Oreos and combine again until almost no white streaks remain.
After, add the filling into the prepared crust, and use a spatula to evenly spread out.
Now in a medium heat-safe bowl, place the chocolate chips, and heavy cream into the microwave for 45 seconds to melt. Next, use a whisk to combine.
Once you have combined place into the microwave for another 15 seconds until completely melted. Then, let the ganache sit for 15 minutes at room temperature.
To finish, add the ganache on top of the cheesecake filling and place it into the fridge to chill for 6 hours before serving.
Finally, you can top with your choice of whipped cream or Oreos or both.
