Who doesn't LOVE oreos, right?
Chocolate biscuits sandwiched together with delicious cream. Have you tried dunking oreo in cold milk before eating it? If you haven't well then you should. It's yummy!
So today I would like to share with you a super easy no-bake Oreo cheesecake. From top to the bottom, it's all about oreo in this recipe.
Let's start, shall we?
As you can see in the video below, the base of this cheesecake is dark and it's made from oreo biscuits.
I'm using the whole biscuit together with the cream. I find it too much work just to scrape the cream out and then to throw it? A bit of a waste of a yumminess, don't you agree?
You can either make the crumbs for the base by putting the biscuits in a zip lock bag and bashing them like there's no tomorrow.
Or you can also put them in a food processor and blend them into fine crumbs.
I have gotten many questions from you guys asking what type of cream cheese do I use for my no bake cheesecakes.
I always use Philadelphia cream cheese. And this post is not sponsored by any means. Haha!
When it's the best, it is the best. Don't you think?
I have tried using other local brands from Spain and unfortunately none of them works as perfect as Philadelphia cream cheese.
I also never use light cream cheese, even from Philadelphia brand. I've tried using light cream cheese, to find a way of making the cheesecake lighter but the texture was all off.
So if you're looking to substitute with light cream cheese, light yogurt, light cream.. I guess this cheesecake is not for you.
It's a decadent and delicious cheesecake that we only make for weekend gatherings or special occasions. I don't think anybody eats cheesecake on a daily basis. Right?
I'm using a 7 inch (18 cm) springform pan for this cheesecake. I think that's a perfect size.
As you can see in the video, there are traces of oreo bits in the whole cheesecake itself. Yes, we are squeezing the oreos biscuits as much as we can in this one.
Personally I like it because the oreo bits give some texture to the cheesecake.
The Chocolate Ganache
Go big or go home, right?
So for this already delicious and wonderful oreo cheesecake, I'm adding some chocolate ganache on top. Followed by some cute cream flowers and of course, finished off by some oreo biscuits.
The ganache is super easy to make and it gives the whole cheesecake an elegant look. Besides, nobody can say no to a chocolate ganache right?
So there you go, a beautiful and delicious no bake oreo cheesecake that's easy to make. Keep it in mind for your next gathering or event.
