Fiona from Just So Tasty is sharing this super easy, no bake chocolate cheesecake recipe. It’s creamy, it’s chocolate-y, AND it’s way easier than making traditional baked cheesecake.

Now, it’s no secret that I absolutely LOVE cheesecake. I’ve shared these chocolate chip cheesecake bars and a no bake cheesecake recipes on Lil Luna already this year. But I don’t believe in too much of a good thing. So creating the perfect no bake chocolate cheesecake recipe was on my to do list.

I love the combination of rich chocolate and creamy, tangy cheesecake. But I wanted a recipe that had all the characteristics of a traditional baked chocolate cheesecake without the stress.

Only requires 15 minutes

Crust. First stir together melted butter and Oreo cookie crumbs to form the base. Then press the mixture into the bottom of an 8×8 inch pan lined with aluminum foil.

Filling. Whip 1 cup whipping cream with a little powdered sugar until peaks form. Then in a separate bowl beat together the cream cheese, the rest of the powdered sugar, sour cream, and melted chocolate. Then the whipping cream gets mixed into the cream cheese mixture, and we’re done with the filling.

Chill. Spread the creamy chocolate cheesecake mixture over the Oreo cookie crust, and our work is done. Pop the cheesecake in the fridge for at least 4 hours to chill, then serve.

It’s literally only 15 minutes of effort! The hardest part is waiting 4 hours for it to set up in the fridge before devouring it. 😉

Topping Ideas

The cheesecake is delicious alone or topped with other sweet ingredients.

  • Adding fresh fruit like strawberries
  • Spreading a layer of fruit pie filling over the top
  • Drizzle it with chocolate syrup or caramel sauce
  • Top with whipped cream
  • Chocolate chips
  • Chocolate shavings
  • Chopped nuts
  • Coarsely chopped Oreos
  • I’ve also made it for Christmas parties with a sprinkle of crushed candy canes – which is always a huge hit.

A few notes and storing tips

Don’t remove the Oreo cream before making crumbs. It helps act as a binding agent for the crust.

Be sure to use full fat cream cheese

Allow ample time for this cheesecake to set. We recommend chilling at least 4 hours, but you can also make it the night before.

Use different pans to double the recipe or make individual portions. To double this recipe and use a 9×13 pan. Another great thing about this no bake dessert is that you can easily use other pan shapes like a springform pan or pie plates (You may need to make more Oreo crust to cover both plates). You can even make individual cheesecakes using mini pie pans or clear plastic cups.

Cover and STORE the cheesecake in the fridge for 3-4 days. To FREEZE, allow the cake to chill in the fridge first. Cover with plastic wrap then wrap the whole pan with aluminum foil. Freeze for up to 3 months.

  5. Hi there! What kind of semi-sweet chocolate? Is the recipe called for a bar of semi-sweet chocolate? Or semi-sweet chocolate chips?

    1. I like to use a bar… like Ghirardelli or Baker’s. But you could use chips if that’s what you have.
