10 best easy oreo recipes

mini oreo cakes ann reardon

Oreos, who doesn’t love them? The lady at the checkout looked at me strangely when I bought an extraordinarily large supply of Oreos for this week’s recipes. What followed was LOTS of fun testing a few old recipes and designing delicious NEW ones just for YOU 🙂 The two-ingredient mousse and cute Mini Cakes are my favourite. How about you?

Most of these are quick and easy so you can make them yourself this weekend or just watch the video and dream that you’re eating them. We invited some friends over for a BBQ and surprised them with 10 desserts at the end of evening!

Triple Layer Oreo Cheesecake

1/4 cup butter
150g (5.29 ounces) oreos for the base
2 Tablespoons gelatin
85mL (2.87 fluid ounces) or 1/3 cup water
750g (26.46 ounces) or 2 3/4 cups cream cheese
218g (7.69 ounces) or 1 cup sugar
190mL (6.42 fluid ounces) or 3/4 cup milk
100g (3.53 ounces) dark chocolate
180mL (6.09 fluid ounces) or 3/4 cup cream
To decorate:
1 packet oreo wafer sticks
1 packet of oreos
100g (3.53 ounces) chocolate

Melt the butter in the microwave. Process the oreos until you have fine crumbs (or crush with rolling pin), add in the melted butter and stir to combine.

Line the sides and base of a container and press the oreo mixture onto the base. Place in the fridge while you make the filling.
Add the cold water to the gelatin, stir well and leave to one side.
Place the cream cheese and sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer and mix together until you have a smooth mixture. Add in the milk and whip together until there are no lumps. Split the mixture into three bowls making one slightly bigger.
To the first bigger bowl add some vanilla and stir it through. For the second bowl crush up a packet of oreos pour them in and mix them through.
For the last bowl take a scoop of cream cheese mixture and stir it into the melted chocolate, then add the rest and mix together.

Place the cream in a separate bowl and whip to form soft peaks. Split the whipped cream equally between the three bowls but don’t mix it in yet.

Place the gelatin in the microwave to melt it. Add three tablespoons of gelatin to the vanilla bowl and fold it altogether. Pour the vanilla layer onto the base then put it in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Add 2 tablespoons of melted gelatin to the oreo layer (microwave fro 10 second burst if you need to remelt it) and mix it together well so your cream and gelatin are all mixed into the cheesecake. Then pour the oreo layer over the vanilla layer and return it to the freezer.

Once it is starting to set and the remaining melted gelatin tot he chocoolate layer fold together and pour over the oreo layer. Give it a little shake to smooth out the top then place in the freezer overnight.

In the morning remove from the container (see video for tips) and place on serving plate. Decorate with whipped cream, oreos and oreo wafer sticks. Cover in plastic wrap and let it defrost in the fridge for at least a few hours before serving.

Icing Sugar

Add the vanilla and icing sugar to the cream and whip until you get firm peaks.
Place an oreo on some baking paper, add some cream on top, stack with another oreo, more cream and another oreo. Spread the cream evenly around the sides and level off the top so that it looks like a tall cake.
Decorate as you wish.

Leave in an airtight container in the fridge for a few hours or overnight before serving. This allows the oreos to soften.

    Hi Anne it’s so nice to see that two chefs from different parts of the world creating the same recipe! I’ve been making the 2 ingredient Oreo mousse for the last 15 years! Same thing with the mine cakes and the ice creams.
    I’m always working with Oreos since it is a favorite in our house and in my shop. Love it!

    • g’day kay, that’s great to hear – it’s a fun ingredient to experiment with ?

    I wanted to make the oreo fudge but my sister is slightly lactose intolerant. She can eat the chocolate and oreos fine’ but would there be a good substitute for sweetened condensed milk?

    • Hi Mandy, You can get ‘dairy free’ or lactose free sweetened condensed milk. Try that as an alternative.

    For the oreo cheesecake, you said to use a container, not a cake pan. About what diameter and height does this container need to be?

    • Hi Librocubic, Ann used a round container with a 17cm diameter. The height needs to around 5cm or more just enough to accommodate the cheesecake mixture for setting.

  7. Hi
    How many Oreos are in one packet?
