These Oreo Cheesecake Parfaits are a rich, luscious, and crazy delicious dessert that is quick, easy, and requires no baking. They are perfect for any time of year when you need a simple dessert that looks like you put in a lot of effort.
To make these parfaits, you will need 6 ingredients:
- Regular or double stuffed Oreo cookies
- Cream cheese
- Powdered sugar
- Heavy cream
- Vanilla extract
Start by crushing the Oreo cookies in a food processor or by placing them in a plastic bag and crushing them with a rolling pin. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add in the powdered sugar, heavy cream, vanilla extract, and salt. Beat until well combined and creamy.
Take 4 glasses or serving dishes and layer the crushed Oreo cookies and the cream cheese mixture. Start with a layer of crushed Oreos at the bottom, followed by a layer of the cream cheese mixture. Repeat until you have used all the ingredients, ending with a layer of crushed Oreos on top.
Refrigerate the parfaits for at least 2 hours to allow them to set before serving.
These parfaits can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 day before serving. However, the longer they sit, the whipped cream will start to loosen and become flat and the cookies will lose their crunch.
Feel free to get creative with this recipe by using different flavors of Oreos or adding in extracts like peppermint for a minty twist. You can even add a splash of Baileys Irish Cream for an adult version of these parfaits.
Enjoy these Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Parfaits as a decadent and easy dessert option. They are sure to impress your family and friends, and no one will guess that they required minimal effort on your part!
