Today I’m sharing with you this decadent, no-bake, double layer chocolate Oreo cheesecake. I’m also hosting one last big giveaway before the holidays: a $110 gift card to Vons/Safeway!

It’s been a while since I made a fully decorated cake, so I’m pretty excited with how this one turned out. It’s so creamy that it looks like an ice cream cake. I really love the that it’s two layers. The first layer is a creamy chocolate cheesecake. The second layer is an Oreo/cookies and cream cheesecake. Are you hungry yet?

No eggs, no baking, this is pretty easy to put together. And you can store it in the fridge or freezer until it’s ready for its debut.

I learned a new phrase today: Parson Brown. As in Parson Brown from the Winter Wonderland song. I’ve always guessed that Parson was some kind of minister of sorts, but I wasn’t sure if Parson Brown was a specific minister that really existed or some sort of commonly used phrase. In case you don’t know, it is the latter. According to urban dictionary “Parson Brown” is the term used to talk about a typical Anglican priest of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

So how did this come about? I was in the car singing along and I suddenly wondered out loud “who is Parson Brown?” My dear Mr. K then turned to me and flatly stated “It’s not Parson Brown, the lyrics are ‘and we’ll play until we’re parse and brown.’” Well, that left me reeling. Had I been singing this song completely wrong since my childhood? Had I embarrassingly sung it in front of others incorrectly too?

And then I went home and looked it up and triumphantly told him he was wrong. He’s the one who has been mishearing the lyrics wrong all these years! I had to rub it in because normally I am the one singing wrong phrases. I’m glad I wasn’t wrong about this one though.

Now onto this cheesecake. I was recently approached by Vons to see if I was interested in creating a recipe with their Lucerne products. Of course, I was! Vons is my go-to store to pick up most of my ingredients for recipes on this blog and I already use Lucerne products, especially their dairy items like milk and cheese, on a daily basis. The Lucerne products tend to be cheaper than the other brands being offered, and I’ve found the quality is the same, which is why I am always reaching for the Lucerne option. For this recipe, I’m using some of my favorite Lucerne products: Lucerne cream cheese, heavy cream, and whipped topping.

No Bake Double Layer Chocolate Oreo Cheesecake

Prep Time: 40 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 10
This no-bake cheesecake has two decadent layers: The first layer is a creamy chocolate cheesecake. The second layer is an Oreo cookies and cream cheesecake.

Ingredients:

For the Crust

  • 26 Oreos
  • 4 tbsp melted butter

For the Chocolate Cheesecake Layer

  • 2 (8-oz) boxes cream cheese I used Lucerne
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream I used Lucerne
  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate chips melted

For the Oreo Cheesecake Layer

  • 2 (8-oz) boxes cream cheese I used Lucerne
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream I used Lucerne
  • 6 Oreos crushed

For Decoration

  • 10 whole Oreos
  • 3 finely crushed Oreos
  • 1 can whipped cream topping spray I used Lucerne

Directions:

  1. Line the bottom of a 9-inch round springform pan with parchment paper.
  2. To make crust, pulse Oreos inside food processor until they become fine crumbs. Add in melted butter and pulse again until crumbs are all coated in butter. Pour mixture into the cake pan. Using hands, spread Oreo mixture evenly across bottom of cake pan and then press down with knuckles so that crumbs form a compact crust.
  3. Next, make the chocolate layer. First, add heavy cream to the bowl of a stand mixer. Using the wire whisk attachment, mix on high speed until stiff peaks form. You know your cream is ready when you can turn the bowl upside down without the peaks sliding out. Scoop out whipped heavy cream and set aside.
  4. Add cream cheese and sugar to the empty mixing bowl and mix on high speed until light and fluffy. You may need to scrape your bowl down a few times so that the cream cheese gets thoroughly whipped. Add the whipped cream back into the bowl and mix again on high speed until peaks form and mixture is uniform.
  5. Add in melted chocolate to the mixture. (To make melted chocolate, you can melt on the stove with a double broiler until smooth. You can also melt by heating in the microwave at 30 second intervals and then stirring in between until completely melted and smooth. if you do the microwave method, you want to be careful not to overheat your chocolate mixture. Mine was done at 2 minutes with stops in between to stir.) Whip on high speed until chocolate is completely incorporated. Scoop out mixture into cake pan. Using spatula, spread mixture across evenly.
  6. Now make the Oreo cheesecake layer. First, add heavy cream to the bowl of a stand mixer. Using the wire whisk attachment, mix on high speed until stiff peaks form. You know your cream is ready when you can turn the bowl upside down without the peaks sliding out. Scoop out whipped heavy cream and set aside.
  7. Add cream cheese and sugar to the empty mixing bowl and mix on high speed until light and fluffy. You may need to scrape your bowl down a few times so that the cream cheese gets thoroughly whipped. Add the whipped cream back into the bowl and mix again on high speed until peaks form and mixture is uniform.
  8. Stir in crushed Oreos (I pulsed them through a food processor). Now scoop out onto cake. Spread evenly across the cake, on top of the chocolate layer. Smooth the top with a cake frosting tool. If desired, sprinkle Oreo crumbs from three additional crushed Oreos across top for decoration.
  9. Let cake sit in fridge or freezer overnight until ready to serve. On day of serving, add dollops of whipped topping spray to top of cake and place an Oreo onto each dollop, arranging so that each slice gets an Oreo with a dollop of cream. Serve immediately.

  1. I do that to songs ALL THE TIME. Recently there’s an Enrique Iglesias song where he sings “I wanna be contigo, and dance contigo” and I was singing it “I wanna be gold digger, and dance gold digger”. Hahahah. And the Taylor Swift “starbucks lovers” line that apparently everyone mishears: https://nymag.com/scienceofus/2014/11/why-you-keep-mishearing-that-taylor-swift-lyric.html

    P.S. That oreo pie looks AMAZING.

    • hee hee. Yes i was mishearing “starbucks lover” and had to look it up. I do it a lot as well so I just assumed I was wrong again, but I’m so glad I was right for once!

  2. Haha, “triumphantly “….I’d be the same way too.  I. believe the phenomon of mishearing or misinterpreting song lyrics  is called a Mondegreen. I do it all the time!

    • Oh, now I just learned another new word. I didn’t even know there was a term for it. But yes, I would not let it go that he’s been thinking it’s “parse and brown” all these years.

  3. There’s a whole website dedicated to misheard lyrics. https://www.kissthisguy.com/

    That cake looks amazing and I am trying to figure out if I can make that and the trifle I had planned for Christmas…

  4. That looks so delicious! 

    I hear “Starbucks lovers” also…

  5. Hi Kirbie this looks delicious and in order to make it I have a question about directions. Specifically is about the crushed Oreos in the crust. Do you only crush the 2 outside wafers and not the cream between? and the same goes for the Oreo cheesecake layer, Do you only use the dark part of the cookies and not the cream? Thanx
