Here’s a simple recipe that is always a big hit at a BBQ: No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Bars

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Bars

As it turns out, there are very few summer days left in this season.  Just a few more weekends to go, and then we’ll be grabbing sweaters in the morning and thinking about putting our patio furniture away.  I plan on milking every last drop of sunshine out of it and enjoying our backyard for as long as we can stand it.  Eating outdoors is our favorite.  And we love having friends over to enjoy it with us.  This so simple dessert is a good one to serve at a barbecue where there are plenty of kiddos around.  Kids love the Oreos in this dessert, but I think you’ll find that the adults like them too!

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Bars Recipe -

You can make this ahead of time- either early in the day or the night before.  It just needs time to set a little in your refrigerator before you start cutting into it.  This recipe is always a big hit at a party- easy and yummy!

Yield: 8 to 12 servings

Prep Time: 25 minutes

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Bars



  • 48 Oreo Cookies, crushed into crumbs
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, melted


  • 3 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 3/4 cup cold water
  • Three 8-ounce packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups 2% or whole milk
  • 3 cups Cool Whip
  • 30 Oreo cookies, crushed


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the crust ingredients and press into the bottom of a 9x13-inch pan. Place in the freezer while you make the filling.
  2. In small saucepan, soften the gelatin in water; stir over low heat until the gelatin is dissolved.
  3. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the cream cheese and sugar until well blended. Add the milk and the dissolved gelatin gradually. Mix until well combined. Mix in the Cool Whip.  Remove 1 1/2 cups of the mixture and put in another bowl.  Carefully spoon the rest of the filling mixture into the pan on top of the crust. Add the remaining Oreo cookies to the rest of the mixture, spread on top, and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.

    48 oreo’s and 3 packets of cream cheese? You are steering me in the right direction here. I think you are right, everyone loves Oreo’s, kids or adults. That are BBQ, I mean, great that you think this pairs well with BBQ. The wife and I have had good BBQ on the brain lately, NOT easy to find in Buffalo, NY. Still,, the search is on!

    Can I use whipped cream instead of Cool Whip? Or does this dessert require the
    stablizers found in Cool Whip?

      Pretty sure this one is more like a “Cool Whip” kind of dessert. But I haven’t tried it with whipped cream, so I can’t say for sure.
