Instant Pot Oreo Cheesecake Recipe 

When you sink your teeth into this instant pot cheesecake recipe, I promise you’re going to want to make this cheesecake all the time. With crushed Oreos as the crust, crushed Oreos in the cheesecake filling, and mini Oreos on top, how can you go wrong?

Take this instant pot cheesecake oreo recipe to your next family gathering. Everybody is going to be so pleased with such a delicious dessert they’re going to rave about it and beg you for the recipe.

The last time I made this cake, everybody went back for seconds even though it’s so super-rich they couldn’t resist having one more piece. 

What Is Chocolate Ganache

Ganache is a combination of heavy whipping cream and melted chocolate chips. If you want to add chocolate ganache to the top of this cheesecake, that is more than fine. You can whip up a batch of chocolate ganache very easily. Simply heat up the heavy cream in a pot on your stovetop until it is just barely warm, then add in some chocolate chips and stir with a whisk. Pour it over the top of the cake, and you will have homemade chocolate ganache ready to eat. 

While I didn’t use chocolate ganache for this particular recipe, I use it for many other cheesecakes that I make. I decided to go with more of a chocolate syrup because I like the flavor and wanted something a little bit different.

Both options would be fantastic for you, so try whichever one you want.

How Long Will It Take Cheesecake To Set Up 

This Oreo cookie cheesecake will take about 5-12 hours to set up. You should keep it in the refrigerator overnight then serve it the next day. It’s very and important you don’t skip this step; otherwise, the cheesecake will fall apart as you try to cut it. 

Storing Instant Pot Cheesecake 

You should always keep the instant pot cheesecake in the refrigerator except for when you’re serving it. You can only allow the cheesecake to sit out at room temperature for no more than 2 hours at a time. It’s important to keep the cheesecake covered in an airtight container.

The cheesecake will last in the refrigerator for 5 days. 

Can I Use A Different Flavor Oreo For This Cheesecake 

Yes, you can absolutely use a different flavor of Oreos to make this cheesecake. Mint Oreos, peanut butter Oreos, or double stuffed Oreos would all be lovely options. I’ve tried mint Oreos, and they are seriously so amazing if you love chocolate and mint, that is a wonderful combination. 

Can I Freeze Oreo Cheesecake 

Yes, you can freeze this Oreo cheesecake recipe. After the cake has cooled and chill overnight, you can wrap it up with plastic wrap then place the cake inside of another container that is airtight.

It will last in the freezer for around three months. Before serving the cheesecake, you can thaw out in the refrigerator. Or you can eat it frozen if you’d rather. 


You will combine two sets of ingredients for this cake: the crust and the filling. Let’s take a closer look at what you need for this cheesecake recipe. 

For the crust:

  • 16 Oreos
  • 3 Tbsp. Melted butter unsalted
  • Pinch of salt

For the filling:

  • 16 oz. Cream cheese softened
  • ¼ C. Brown sugar
  • ½ C. Granulated sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • ¼ C. Sour cream
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 Tbsp. All purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 10 Oreos
  • Whipping cream for topping
  • Crushed Oreos for topping
  • Chocolate syrup for topping

How to Make Oreo Cheesecake

After you learn how to make this Oreo cheesecake in your instant pot, you will have a new favorite method for making cheesecakes. 

First Step: Place Oreo cookies and melted butter in a food processor. Blend until they are completely combined and smooth. 

Second Step: Place the cookie crumbs in a well-greased springform pan. Push the crumbs into the bottom, so they form a solid crust. Put the crust into the freezer for at least 20 minutes. 

Third Step: Combine the cream cheese, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, sour cream, flour, and vanilla in a bowl until smooth and creamy. 

Fourth Step:  Take 10 Oreos and crush them up and add them to the cream cheese filling.  Pour the cheesecake filling on top of the crust. 

Fifth Step: Add a piece of aluminum foil on top of the cheesecake to protect it while it is cooking. Pour one cup of water into the instant pot and add the trivet to the pot.  

Sixth Step: Add the lid to the instant pot and turn it on to the manual setting for 37 minutes. Complete a natural release for 10 minutes once the cheesecake is done cooking. Then finish with a quick release. Put the cheesecake on a wire rack to allow it to cool. 

Seventh Step:  Store the cheesecake in the refrigerator for a minimum of 5 hours. Twelve hours would be the best-case scenario. 

Eighth Step: When you’re ready to serve this cheesecake, add chocolate syrup, Oreos, and whipped cream on top.
