Oreo mint cheesecake is my latest obsession. There are so many things I love about this cake, but the Oreos are at the top of my list. Instead of using regular Oreos, we use mint Oreos instead. Even the cheesecake has pure mint extract to give you an explosion of minty flavor in each bite. So, if you are a big mint and chocolate fan, please make this cake!

You aren’t going to regret it, plus it’s fun to make in your Instant Pot.

Storing Cheesecake 

You will need to let the Oreo mint cheesecake cool down after cooking. Once it’s cool, then you will need to keep it in an airtight container and refrigerate it. The cheesecake will last in the fridge for 4-5 days. Never let it sit out for longer than two hours at a time, or it will begin to spoil. 

Can I Swap Out The Crust In This Cheesecake Recipe 

Yes, absolutely! You can use any variety of Oreos or even graham crackers to make the crust. Both are great and will give you that traditional cheesecake flavor we all love and crave.

Topping For Mint Chip Cheesecake 

The topping that we use is a homemade chocolate ganache. It’s the best topping ever. You could also add some crushed mint Oreos, regular Oreos, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or even melted white chocolate drizzle. Add any of your favorite toppings! 

Do You Have to Refrigerate For 24 Hours Before Serving 

Yes, anytime you make a cheesecake in your pressure cooker, it needs to be refrigerated for at least 24 hours before serving. If you don’t refrigerate it, then it will fall apart as you cut it. It’s very important to allow the instant pot mint chip cheesecake time to set up. 

Does Cheesecake Freeze Well 

Yes, freezing this mint cheesecake is a wonderful way to save it for more than a few days. You can wrap it up with plastic wrap and keep it in a food storage container. It typically lasts up to three months in the freezer with no issues.
