This recipe is quick, simple, and delicious. It utilizes a pre-made Oreo pie crust, chocolate instant pudding mix, and cream cheese to make a decadent dessert everyone will love.

Neufchatel Cheese or Cream Cheese?

In this recipe, it does not matter if you use Neufchatel Cheese or Cream cheese in this recipe. Use whichever you prefer.

I often use Neufchatel Cheese in recipes that call for cream cheese because it has a little bit less fat. But other than that it tastes the exact same to me.

Can I use Homemade Whipped Cream?

Absolutely! You don’t have to use the whipped topping in this recipe. You can make your own whipped cream by whipping Heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.

Just don’t forget to sweeten your homemade whipped cream with a little bit of powdered sugar because whipped topping like Cool-whip is slightly sweet.

Can I make my own crust?

Yes absolutely. To make your own Oreo crust first crush up some Oreos into small cookie crumbs and mix with a little bit of melted butter. Press into a pie pan before adding the chocolate cheesecake filling.

Of course, making your own Oreo pie crust will add a bit more prep time to your 5 minute chocolate cheesecake but homemade is always better so I say go for it if you have the time!

A little slice of deliciousness! I have made this for a couple of family events and has now officially become my new “go to” dessert for events because it goes together quickly and easily and can be prepared a day ahead of time and also because I get a lot of requests for it.

Very quick and easy to make. I saved back just a bit of the whip topping to put on top and shaved a chocolate bar onto it.

  1. Can I use the tub ready made cream cheese with just a chocolate pudding box.
    I want a chocolate filling.

    • The filling would be extremely rich if you only put those two ingredients together. I think you would need some milk and whipped topping to lighten up the chocolate pudding mixture. The milk and whipped topping also helps with the consistency of the dessert, without them the pudding mixture would be too stiff.

  2. Whipped cream comes in at least 2 different sized tubs. How many ounces should the tub contain?

  3. You had me at chocolate. This recipe looks super easy and good. Perfect for the holidays

  4. I absolutely love the sound of this and the fact it is so quick to make and doesn’t need be backed is such a bonus.
