I love cookies. I could eat them any time of the day or night. My weakness for cookies comes out while I am clothes shopping which is ironic considering I am a woman and I hate buying new clothes for myself. Wait, check that I love buying new clothes for myself, I hate buying jeans. But since shopping is a fun, yet emotional time for me, I always crave a cookie when I’m done. I sometimes I have no self-control and stop by a local cookie shop and buy one. Sometimes I make it home and whip up a big batch. Cookies are just my thing, so it was bound to happen that I make a cookie cheesecake. But I elevated this easy dessert recipe to elite cookie status by including cookie dough too!
Now cookie vs cookie dough – hands down cookie dough. Right?! My mom always lets us eat cookie dough, she didn’t worry much about the egg thing, thank goodness. So today I take two of my very favorite weaknesses and turn them into an easy no-bake cheesecake recipe. You won’t believe how good this chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake is. The hot fudge sauce on top really take it to a whole other level of dessert bliss, but it’s just as good with extra cookie dough on top.

Tools used to make this recipe:
Mixing Bowl: These mixing bowls get used just about every day at my house. The grip handle makes them easy to hold and the pour spout makes them perfect for batters!
Springform Pan: These pans are great for no-bake desserts or showstopping dinners
Stand Mixer: I don’t know what I’d do without my stand mixer. I use it for just about everything…and I mean everything! Cakes, cookies, mashed potatoes, and shredding chicken!
- 1 ½ cups chocolate chip cookie crumbs
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
- 12 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened
- 2 cups frozen non-dairy whipped topping thawed
- 1 ½ cups chocolate chip dough chunks use a premade refrigerated dough
- Hot fudge sauce optional
- Make the crust: in a medium mixing bowl combine chocolate chip cookie crumbs, brown sugar, and melted butter. Stir together until combined.
- Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch cheesecake pan or springform pan. Make sure to firmly press to make the crust compact, as not to crumble when the cheesecake is complete. Set aside in the refrigerator while you prepare the rest of the no-bake cheesecake.
- Beat together cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and butter in large bowl on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Fold in whipped topping until blended.
- Add chocolate chip cookie dough chunks and fold in until incorporated. Spread on top of prepared crust. Set the no-bake cheesecake in the refrigerator for 60 minutes.
- Cut the cheesecake into slices and serve, drizzle with hot fudge sauce and sprinkle with chocolate chip cookie dough crumbles.

I noticed that the recipe never indicates when the vanilla extract is to be added

Ok can you explain to me why it will not show the recipe for the No bake chocolate chip cheese cake. I thought it was because I needed to sign up so I did and it still does not show me anything.
Jennifer Kimmel says
Hey Tammy, I hope you found the recipe. The link has been fixed. Sorry about this.
Do you use 1/4 cup plus 1/2 stick of butter or just 1/2 stick of butter?
Aubrey Cota says
It’s just the 1/4 cup of butter softened. No addition of 1/2 stick, originally it should have said OR to help identify. I have updated the recipe to reflect the correction
Just wondering if you can use whipped whipping cream instead of frozen topping and can you use homemade cookies and cookie dough instead of store bought?
Julie Kotzbach says
Hi Jodi! You can use homemade cookies and cookie dough if you prefer. For the whipped topping, you’d want to substitute a stabilized whipped cream. We have a homemade “cool whip” recipe here that’ll work: https://realhousemoms.com/homemade-cool-whip/
Looks really good
