Oreo Dessert is an easy to assemble no bake dessert with 8 ingredients. Our oreo delight recipe has 4 layers, including a homemade oreo whipped cream layer! This no bake oreo dessert is fluffy, rich, and cuts cleanly! It will quickly become your favorite summer dessert.

A lot of other oreo desserts tend to get mushy and don’t cut nicely because they have a layer of actual pudding in the middle. Our dessert still uses a box of chocolate pudding mix, but you prepare the pudding mix so it turns out to be like chocolate mousse. That means our dessert is thick, fluffy and cuts cleanly!

How To Make Oreo Dessert

Oreo Crust

  1. Combine blended oreos with melted butter. Press the oreo crust into an un-greased 9×13 inch pan. 

Cream Cheese Layer

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract, beat on high until its fluffy. Add in one container of cool whip and mix on low until incorporated. Spread the cream cheese layer evenly over the oreo crust. 

Chocolate Mousse Layer

Oreo Whipped Cream Layer

  1. Remove the metal or glass bowl and beaters from the freezer. Combine the heavy cream, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and 6 crushed oreos in the bowl, beat with an electric mixer for 4-5 minutes, or until stiff peaks form / it’s scoop-able with a spoon and holds its shape. Spread this layer on top of the chocolate mousse layer. Top the dessert with the remaining 6 oreos, breaking them into smaller pieces.

How Long is Oreo Dessert Good For?

This oreo pudding dessert is best eaten within 2 days of making it. The oreo crust will soften as more times passes. 

How To Quickly Soften Cream Cheese

Remove the cream cheese from the paper packaging, but keep it in the foil wrapper. Place the cream cheese in a bowl of hot water for 5-10 minutes. The cream cheese will quickly soften to room temperature.

It is really easy to make this dessert gluten free by using gluten free oreos.  All of the other ingredients in the recipe are naturally gluten free!

Add in one container of cool whip and mix on low until incorporated. Spread this layer on top of the cream cheese layer. Return the pan to the fridge.
