Chocolatey cold frozen cheesecake with a coffee twist! This mocha cheesecake is a no-bake dessert with a chocolate cookie crust and topping and a rich mocha cheesecake filling.



For the Crust

  • 1/2 cup salted butter, melted
  • 2 cups Oreo cookie crumbs (see note)

For the Filling

  • 8-ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1 (11-oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 1 teaspoon hot water
  • 1 ½ cup whipping cream


  1. Combine the melted butter with the Oreo cookie crumbs.  Set aside ½ cup of this mixture to use for the topping. 
  2. Press the remaining crumb mixture into a 9″ springform pan.  Press the crumb mixture into the bottom and a little up the sides. 
  3. For the filling, beat the cream cheese in a large bowl until fluffy.  Then beat in the condensed milk and chocolate syrup, scraping sides and bottom partway through until well mixed.
  4. Dissolve the coffee in 1 teaspoon of water.  Add this to the cream cheese mixture.
  5. Whip the whipping cream in a separate bowl until stiff.  Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese batter.
  6. Pour this whole mixture on top of the cookie crumb crust. Sprinkle the reserved crumbs over top.
  7. Freeze overnight or for at least 6 hours. Serve frozen. 


You can buy Oreo cookie crumbs or crush whole cookies in a food processor. You can also use chocolate wafer cookie crumbs or make a graham cracker crust for this recipe.

If you don’t want to make homemade whipped cream, you can substitute 8 ounces of prepared whipped topping. 

For a plain no-bake chocolate cheesecake, omit the coffee granules.

Fold some chocolate chips into the filling before pouring it into the prepared pan for an extra chocolate kick. Or drizzle some melted dark chocolate ganache or melted chocolate over the top before serving.

Keep the leftover cheesecake in the freezer.
