No Bake Berry Oreo Cheesecake

I knew when I saw the title of this recipe I wanted to try it. I was meandering through Target a few days after reading this recipe and saw the Berry Ice Cream Oreos, so I bought them. I am SO glad I did. This is a wonderful dessert--run out soon to find the Oreos and make this!

No Bake Berry Oreo Cheesecake

2/3 pack crushed up Berry Oreos (2 sleeves)
1/2 cup melted butter

1 sleeve of crushed Berry Oreos
1/4 cup melted butter
1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 8 oz. tub cool whip
Red Food coloring (optional)
Strawberry Whoppers(optional)

* Note: I crush my Oreos with my food processor. It is very easy and results in all the crumbs being a uniform size. You can also crush them with a rolling pin with the Oreos in a Ziploc bag. Totally up to you.

1. Prepare crust by adding melted butter to crushed oreos, mixing until well combined. Spread mixture on the bottom of you pan, pressing down evenly or putting an equal amount in cupcake liners in your cupcake pan (mine was about 2 tsp in each cupcake liner). Set aside.

2. Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl with mixer until well blended. Fold in cool whip and remaining chopped cookies. You can also add food coloring to make it a little more pink. Spread over crust.

3. Refrigerate 3-4 hours until firm before serving. If wanted, top with more cool whip and a whopper(or a blackberry)Enjoy!

Makes about 16 cupcake size cheesecakes.
