Course: cheesecake, Dessert
Servings: 10
Author: Gemma Stafford
Ingredients
  • CRUST
  • 2 ½ cup (2 sleeves (22 cookies) (71/2oz/213g) crushed oreo cookies
  • 1/3 cup (21/2oz/71g) unsalted butter, melted
  • CHEESECAKE
  • 3 cups ( 24oz/675g) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 ¼ cups (18floz/507) cream (whipping/all purpose)
  • cup (5oz/142g) sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups (41/2oz/128g) Oreo Cookies, crushed
  • GANACHE
  • 2/3 cup (4oz/115g) Chocolate
  • 1/2 cup (4oz115) Cream
Instructions
  1. To make the cheesecake base: Combine Oreo crumbs with the melted butter and mix
  2. Press into pan your springform cheesecake tin (9 inches). Set in the fridge and start on the filling.
  3. To Make the Cheesecake filling: Add cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract, to a bowl and beat with a whisk attachment on High speed until smooth and there are no lumps, approximately 3-5 minutes.
  4. Run a spatula under the mix to make sure there are no cream cheese lumps.
  5. Pour in the cream and continue whipping until the mix thickens and becomes bigger in size.
  6. Gently fold in Oreo cookies (or whatever cookie/candy bars you like)
  7. Pour ½ the cheesecake filling into your prepared tin. Add your ‘secret’ oreo layer, then spoon on the rest of the filling. Refrigerate while you make the ganache.
  8. For the Ganache:Heat the cream in a pot until it reaches a simmer. Pour directly over the chocolate and let it melt. Whisk. Pour the cool ganache over the cheesecake while in the tin.
  9. To Set the Cheesecake: Refrigerate for at least 8 hours to set or overnight for best results. It has no gelatin so it needs longer than a regular cheesecake. You can make this 2 days in advance
  10. To remove from the tin run a palette knife or thin spatula around the edges to free it from the tin. Serve with whipping cream and garnish with mini Oreos. Enjoy!

    Hi Gemma,

    Thanks a lot for this amazing recipe.
    I’m gonna try this cheesecake for sure, but I think the powdered sugar available at my region will not dissolve, as there isn’t much liquid at this recipe.
    Please advice can I use the sweetened condensed milk instead?? And I will add 2 sheets of gelatin to the cream.
    Waiting for your reply
    Many thanks in advance

    Rasha

    • Gemma Stafford on October 21, 2018 at 1:30 pm

      Hi Rasha,

      Really glad you like this recipe. yes you absolutely can add condensed milk, maybe 1/4 cup. The fact that you are all adding gelatin is good as it will firm up the condensed milk.

      Best,
      Gemma.

  2. Theresa August on October 15, 2018 at 11:14 am

    Hi Gemma,
    I just submitted a picture. It hasn’t posted yet. I made it the other day and everyone loved it!!!! Words used to describe the whole cake were “smashing” and “amazing”!!!! I did go a little overboard with the cream topping and mini Oreos though. I covered the entire top of the cake. But they said it was beautiful!! Thank u for another wonderful recipe!!

    • Gemma Stafford on October 17, 2018 at 7:34 am

      Hi Theresa,
      Thank you for submitting the picture, I really appreciate it, they await moderation, but should be there now. We were battling with tech issues too, so there was a big delay in response, apologies.
      Thank you too for this very kind review of this recipe, it is a goodie! We love it here too, and it does give a big bang for the buck! Thank you too for taking the trouble to be in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

  3. Rachel on September 4, 2018 at 4:52 pm

    Hi Gemma,

    I once tried a no bake cheesecake and it turned out runny. Am thinking of adding either agar-agar or gelatin powder. Does unflavoured gelatin have taste as I read online some says the taste ruins their cake.

    Nonetheless, are you able to advise on the quantity of agar-agar and non flanoured gelatin if either is used?

    Thank you so much.

    • Gemma Stafford on September 5, 2018 at 9:58 am

      Hello! Great question, if you want a farther set cheesecake I suggest letting it sit in the fridge overnight. Alternatively, you can add 2 teaspoons of agar-agar or gelatin. Enjoy!

      • Rachel on September 7, 2018 at 1:29 pm

        Hi Gemma, I omitted the setting agents as unsure if they would ruin the taste of the cake (would it?) and made it 36 hours before consumption. It was not runny thankfully but rather soft. It was a hit at my son’s party and I have just submitted the photo of the cake. Love all your recipes and can’t wait to try another. Thanks so much Gemma, keep sharing and inspiring us!!

        • Gemma Stafford on September 10, 2018 at 5:53 am

          Yea!
          Rachel, I am so happy to hear that, and even happier to see the results. Thank you so much for posting the photo. I am delighted oyu had a nice celebration,
          Gemma 🙂

  4. Jane Yap on August 20, 2018 at 5:05 pm

    Hello Gemma, I made it last Saturday 18th Aug 18 for my nephew’s birthday and it’s the best ever cake he had for his big day. He loves it!
    Thanks for your great recipe 🙂

    • Gemma Stafford on August 21, 2018 at 3:52 am

      Hi Jane,
      That is great, thank you for letting me know. We love this in my family too, very impressive!
      I am happy that you are baking with us,
      Gemma 🙂

  5. Jane on August 20, 2018 at 3:15 am

    Hi gemma! Love love love your recipe!!
    But can i used whipping cream instead of heavy cream? Or is it the same?

    • Gemma Stafford on August 20, 2018 at 4:08 am

      Hi Jane,
      Thank you for your kind words.
      The term ‘Whipping Cream’ is used to describe different things, depending on where you live.
      The cream which I use for most of my recipes is fresh dairy cream. Called Heavy Whipping Cream here in the US. This needs to be at least 35% fat content to whip well. This is from cows milk. It is a liquid product found in the chill cabinet in your store. It will spoil in a few days, even when refrigerated. It has no additives, it is just natural cream, skimmed from milk.
      In some places, where there is no dairy industry, there are manufactured products, usually made with milk powders and fats. These too can be called Whipping Cream. These are good for some applications, but they are not fresh cream. This type of cream will not work in my ice cream recipes, but it can be perfect for other applications.
      For the Oreo Cheesecake I think you need fresh dairy cream, at least 35% fat content, and a full fat cream cheese for best results.
      I hope this helps,
      Gemma 🙂

  6. Maryam on August 3, 2018 at 7:25 am

    Hi Gemma i love the cake so much. But every time i make this recipe, for some reason when the cheesecake gets out of the fridge, there’s some liquid around the edges of the cake. you know in the cake pan. Do you why the cake leaks?

    • Gemma Stafford on August 4, 2018 at 4:08 am

      Hi Maryam,
      this is to do with the cream cheese you are using.
      Cream cheese sold in tubs is designed for spreading, not baking. A full fat one will be better to work with.
      You may need to use a gelling agent to set it up. Take two sheets of gelatin, or two teaspoons of gelatin or agar agar. Sponge the gelatin according to the pack, in a little cold water. When it is softened drain off the water. Then, if you have a microwave pop the gelatin in for about 10 secs, or until the gelatin has turned to liquid.
      You can do this over a pan of hot water too.
      Then, take a little of the cream, warm it and combine with the gelatin. Start whipping up the cheesecake mixture, and as it is forming add the gel/cream mix. Then straight into the pan.
      *Do prepare the base before you start mixing.
      *Do not overheat the cream.
      *Do follow the instructions on your gelling agent pack.
      This is easy when you try it!
      If you are using agar agar/carrigeen moss/china grass, all seaweed extracts, then follow the directions on the packs,
      Gemma 🙂

  7. Debbie on July 22, 2018 at 3:55 am

    Hi Gemma!
    I have been comparing no-bake cheesecake desserts and many are made with powdered sugar. I am concerned that the granulated sugar will give a grainy texture. Are the two interchangeable and why do you use granulated sugar? Can powdered sugar be used as a replacement? If so, what would the measurement be for the powdered sugar? Thank you (in advance) for all of your advice and help! THANK YOU!!

    • Gemma Stafford on July 23, 2018 at 3:38 am

      Hi Debbie,
      A fine granulated sugar/caster sugar will dissolve in the other ingredients. Powdered sugar can be used, but in the same weight measurement, not cups, but weight, it is a different thing.
      I never have difficulty with this here in the US, but I do know that granulated sugar in other places can be a heavy grain, and that would not work.
      I hope this is of help to you.
      the cream cheese, and the fresh dairy double/heavy cream are really important here, they will set up if they are right. If not you may need to add a gelling agent to set it. Take two sheets of gelatin, or two teaspoons of gelatin or agar agar. Sponge the gelatin according to the pack, in a little cold water. When it is softened drain off the water. Then, if you have a microwave pop the gelatin in for about 10 secs, or until the gelatin has turned to liquid.
      You can do this over a pan of hot water too.
      Then, take a little of the cream, warm it and combine with the gelatin. Start whipping up the cheesecake mixture, and as it is forming add the gel/cream mix. Then straight into the pan.
      *Do prepare the base before you start mixing.
      *Do not overheat the cream.
      *Do follow the instructions on your gelling agent pack.
      This is easy when you try it!
      Gemma 🙂

  8. Marion on July 21, 2018 at 2:21 pm

    I love your recipes! Recently found you on YouTube and trying lots of your recipes. Thanks so much! Can l ask for some advice please?
    If I need to use agar agar to make the cheesecake set, do l use exactly the same quantity of agar as l would gelatine and prepare it in the same way? I have read that agar needs to be boiled then added to warm liquid. Is that correct? I’m not sure how it all works. Thanks for your help

    • Gemma Stafford on July 23, 2018 at 3:43 am

      Hi Marion,
      agar agar is a seaweed based natural gelling agent, like Carrigeen moss and China grass.
      The important thing is to read the instructions on your particular pack, there are different versions.
      This is how I add gelatin to a cheesecake, and I have to do this when I am in Ireland:
      Take two sheets of gelatin, or two teaspoons of gelatin or agar agar. Sponge the gelatin according to the pack, in a little cold water. When it is softened drain off the water. Then, if you have a microwave pop the gelatin in for about 10 secs, or until the gelatin has turned to liquid.
      You can do this over a pan of hot water too.
      Then, take a little of the cream, warm it and combine with the gelatin. Start whipping up the cheesecake mixture, and as it is forming add the gel/cream mix. Then straight into the pan.
      *Do prepare the base before you start mixing.
      *Do not overheat the cream.
      *Do follow the instructions on your gelling agent pack.
      This is easy when you try it!
      I hope this is of help to you,
      Gemma 🙂

    • Gemma Stafford on April 15, 2018 at 5:16 am

      I am really happy to hear this, thank you.
      The measurements are in grams too in this recipe:

      CRUST
      2 ½ cup (2 sleeves (22 cookies) (71/2oz/213g) crushed oreo cookies
      ⅓ cup (21/2oz/71g) unsalted butter, melted

      This is the ‘g’ reference here, so you should manage it well.
      Gemma 🙂

      • Mariean on April 16, 2018 at 6:46 pm

        Thank you so much for sending me ur recipe in grams measurement.soooo much appreciated ,God bless you..

  11. Tracy on April 4, 2018 at 4:00 am

    Hi I don’t have a springform pan can I substitute it for a regular cake pan or do you recommend a different style pan? Also what type of chocolate do you recommend for the ganiche sauce? Thank you

    • Gemma Stafford on April 6, 2018 at 3:29 pm

      Yes use a cake tin but you will need to line it with cling wrap so you can get your cake out of the tin once set.
      Use 70% bitter sweet chocolate for your ganache. it works best.

      Gemma 🙂

  12. Jemma on March 25, 2018 at 5:40 am

    Hello,
    What type of sugar can you use Granulated or icing sugar?

    Thanks,
    Jaymin

    • Gemma Stafford on March 25, 2018 at 9:03 pm

      Hi Jaymin,

      use granulated sugar 🙂

      Gemma.

  13. seera on March 24, 2018 at 5:56 pm

    what type of cream dear ? i don’t understand.

    • Gemma Stafford on March 25, 2018 at 3:51 am

      Hi there,
      The cream which I use for all of my recipes is fresh dairy cream from cow’s milk. This cream must be kept cold, it will spoil at room temperature. The cream which will whip up well will have a fat content of 35% – 49.4%. This is what is known as double/heavy cream. This is the only cream which will work in my ice cream recipes, and is the one which works best in my cheesecakes.
      I hope this helps,
      Gemma 🙂

  14. Jay on March 17, 2018 at 10:46 pm

    I made this for my boyfriend’s birthday yesterday.HE LOVED IT! It turned out to be soo good. Would definitely be making this very soon again!
    I left it in the freezer for a bit as I had to transport it far and it held up well.

    • Gemma Stafford on March 18, 2018 at 5:55 pm

      I’m trilled to hear that!!!

      Thanks for trying my recipe.
      Gemma.

      • Amola Darekar Sharma on March 21, 2018 at 10:44 pm

        Hi Gemma,

        This recipe is big hit!
        Really thanks a lot! But I have made it in the 4inch spring form pan as I have never tried cheesecake before.. Next time I will try it in 9inch pan for my kitty party..
        Thanks a lot. I always look forward to your recipes..

        Amola

        • Gemma Stafford on March 22, 2018 at 3:41 am

          Hi there,
          Good for you, Kitty parties sound like fun, do let us know if you win the pot!
          Gemma 🙂

  15. SofiA on March 10, 2018 at 10:22 am

    Can I use fresh cream(cream which we get after boiling and cooling the milk)in making ganache or when we use sour cream in cakes?

    • Gemma Stafford on March 11, 2018 at 6:35 am

      Hi Sofia,
      1 oz unsalted butter
      1/4 cup (2oz) full fat milk
      4 oz of dark 70%ish, cocoa solids chocolate. Proceed as per my Ganache recipe.
      Yes! You can make ganache with this type of cream. You can also make it with milk and butter as above,
      Gemma 🙂

  16. Đạtt Dươngg on March 2, 2018 at 6:47 am

    Hey, I was wondering if i can whisk the creamcheese by hand or not? What can I do if I don’t have an egg whisk machine?

    • Gemma Stafford on March 5, 2018 at 8:19 am

      Hi there,
      Yes! this was made at home by all sorts of people all over the world before there were electric whisks.Do give it a try,
      Gemma 🙂

  17. Anna Januszek on March 1, 2018 at 1:44 am

    Hello Gemma,
    I want to make your Oreo Cheesecake for a birthday on Saturday. Is it possible to make it today? Or better to make it tomorrow?

    I love to watch your videos!! 😍

    Best wishes,
    Anna

    • Gemma Stafford on March 1, 2018 at 6:57 am

      Hi Anna,
      This will be fine made today, no problem, it will allow it o set up nicely. Wrap it well, in the pan, in the fridge, this will keep it fresh,and safe!
      I hope you like making and eating this cake. Check out the technique here for tempering the chocolate too, this will give it a lovely shine and snap!
      (https://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/temper-chocolate/).
      Gemma 🙂

  18. Rachel on March 1, 2018 at 1:41 am

    Hi Gemma, I tried uploading the picture of my cupcakes of your no bake oreo cheesecake but not sure why the webpage had difficulty to do so. I made 60 of them (tweaked your recipe quantity) and they were a hit! Thanks so much for your fool proof recipe. It made me shine like a pro that day LOL!!!

    • Gemma Stafford on March 1, 2018 at 6:58 am

      Hi Rachel,
      I did not check the photos yet today, they stay there until I approve them. I look forward to seeing them now, I will do it in an hour or so.
      I am delighted that they were a hit for you, a Bold Baker nideed,
      Gemma 🙂

  19. Chiara on February 15, 2018 at 11:26 pm

    Hi Gemma!
    Do you put half of the 200g of Oreo into the mixture and the other half as a secret layer, or all the 200g into the mixture and more as a secret layer? And in case, how much?
    Thank you!!!!
    Chiara

    • Gemma Stafford on February 16, 2018 at 3:54 am

      Hi Chiara,
      Go back to the recipe here. The cookies are pulverized, 1/2 used as a base layer, and 1/2 in the center.
      You will see this in the pics. However, you really can do this as you please, be creative, make individual servings too!
      Gemma 🙂

  20. Cherry Reyes on February 14, 2018 at 3:36 am

    I made this as a Valentine’s day gift for my mom. However, I had to freeze it as it was too soft. So it turned out as a No bake oreo ice cream cake. 😁

    How would I make this firmer without freezing, Gemma? Would gelatin help? Help please.

    Thanks, Gemma.

    • Gemma Stafford on February 15, 2018 at 5:24 am

      Hi Cherry,
      This can be a problem where the cream cheese is very soft, and the cream is not high fat enough.
      Yes, you can use gelatin, my mum does this too as she has a problem getting the right cheese at times.
      For this recipe try this: Take two sheets of gelatin, or two teaspoons of gelatin or agar agar. Sponge the gelatin according to the pack, in a little cold water. When it is softened drain off the water. Then, if you have a microwave pop the gelatin in for about 10 secs, or until the gelatin has turned to liquid.
      You can do this over a pan of hot water too.
      Then, take a little of the cream, warm it and combine with the gelatin. Start whipping up the cheesecake mixture, and as it is forming add the gel/cream mix. Then straight into the pan.
      *Do prepare the base before you start mixing.
      *Do not overheat the cream.
      *Do follow the instructions on your gelling agent pack.
      This is easy when you try it!
      I know that this works Cherry, I hope it resolves this for you,
      Gemma 🙂

      • Cherry Reyes on February 15, 2018 at 5:28 am

        Thanks, Gemma. Will try this again with your gelatin tip. 🙂

        Much appreciated!

  21. Ada on February 4, 2018 at 1:10 am

    Hi Gemma,

    As my family is quite sugar conscious, around how much sugar can I cut down on so that I will not compromise on the texture? Thx

    • Gemma Stafford on February 4, 2018 at 5:11 pm

      Hi Ada,

      great question. You can cut the sugar in half (so 1/3 cup) and it won’t alter the end result of the cake 🙂

      Gemma.

  22. sophiawilson on January 27, 2018 at 10:50 am

    hi gemma i love the recipe but i wanted to ask if you don’t eat cheesecake can it be made otherwise i am 12 years old and wanted to make this for my mother’s birthday and she is not a fan of cheesecake so can you make it differently

    • Gemma Stafford on January 28, 2018 at 3:35 pm

      Hi Sophia,

      Unfortunately this recipe is a cheesecake. You can leave out the cream or cream cheese otherwise you don’t get the same result.

      Gemma.
