Oreo Cheesecake Recipe – Cheesecake Bars

1 oreo cheesecake bar

Oreos… check, cheesecake… check, chocolate… check! Does life get much better than this? I love all of these things and when you mix them together I’m like a little piggy frolicking in the mud! This is certainly not diet food, so if that’s what you are after then back away slowly! But if you are happy to die and go to cookies and cream heaven, then read on…

I had been wanting to try out this recipe for a while but needed to wait until I had something to make it for… I really didn’t want all that chocolate, cream cheese and Oreo cookies sitting in my fridge waiting for just me to eat it all up. Actually, I would love that, but my hips and thighs would not! Thankfully I had a morning tea to take some sweet things to – perfect excuse to make the slice!

It kinda looks a little complicated but is totally deceptive! It’s actually really simple. All you do is start off by making a basic biscuit crumb base with the Oreos and some butter (I told you it wasn’t diet food). Pop that into the oven for 10 minutes. Meanwhile mix the cheesecake ingredients together and add in some more chopped up Oreos (I really did tell you it wasn’t diet food!). After baking in the oven, you simply spread the chocolate topping over the cheesecake layer! (Haha did I tell you that it wasn’t diet food?).

The hardest part of making these cheesecake bars is waiting for them to cool before cutting and eating them. If you want nicely sliced bars, then I definitely recommend chilling the slice overnight. And make sure you wipe your knife between each cut so that you get nice clean slices.

And finally eat the yummy cookies and cream bars! Don’t forget to share them with some friends so you don’t die of an Oreo overdose… but if you do eat the whole batch yourself, then you are even more of a sugarholic than me and I have so very, very much respect for you! 🙂
