A full printable version of this recipe with ingredient measurements is available at the bottom of this post.
STEP ONE: Place the Oreos in a food processor and pulse them until they turn into fine crumbs. Set aside.
STEP TWO: Mix the cream cheese and vanilla extract in a bowl and set aside.
STEP THREE: Pour the heavy cream into a stand mixer and start whipping the cream by starting on low and then increase slowly to a medium speed until it starts to make a soft peak
STEP FOUR: Slowly mix the cream cheese mixture, confectioners sugar, and half of the Oreo crumbs into the whipped cream. Turn off the mixer when just fully combined.
STEP FIVE: Serve in individual glasses filling them halfway with mousse, adding some extra cookie crumbles, then the rest of the mousse to fill the rest. Top it with additional Oreo crumbs, if desired.
Tips To Make The Best Oreo Mousse Dessert
- Whip the heavy cream until it forms a soft peak — this will create a smooth and sweet texture you will love
- Mix the cookies and cream mousse until just combined to avoid overmixing and creating graininess
- Use room temperature cream cheese — cold cream cheese will not mix into the mousse fully
- Use Double Stuf Oreos so you get the cream filling taste in the mousse
- Crush the Oreos in a food processor or by placing them in a Ziploc bag and using a rolling pin to break them into crumbs
Variations to This Oreo Chocolate Mousse Recipe
- Add dark chocolate syrup when adding the extra Oreo crumbs in the bowls for an extra chocolate flavor
- Remove the cream cheese from the recipe to make this an original Oreo mousse without a cheesecake flavor
- Add mini chocolate chips or even white chocolate chips for another texture component
- Double the Oreos for a more Oreo flavor
- Add brownie or chocolate cake pieces and layer this in a trifle dish to serve to guests for a new way to serve this Oreo cookie dessert
How to Make Oreo Chocolate Mousse in Just 3 Ingredients
This recipe is easily changeable to make with just 3 ingredients — and it’s still no bake!
Just add a container of cool whip to the Oreo crumbs and cream cheese and gently fold the ingredients together!
I love the addition of vanilla extract if you have it on hand as well, but it’s still delicious without it!
While the super easy recipe doesn’t taste like a true chocolate Oreo mousse, it’s great in a pinch and even works for a fruit dip!
How to Store Oreo Mousse
You can make this mousse recipe ahead of time and store it right in the fridge in an airtight container and store the extra Oreo crumbs in another airtight container on the counter.
I like to keep them separated to keep the crumbs nice and crunchy for added texture.
When ready to eat: Take the cookies and cream mousse out of the fridge and layer the mousse and Oreo crumbs into individual bowls.
You can also double or triple this recipe and store it in a trifle bowl.
