Best Oreo Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

Oreo Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars combine the best of a Classic Cheesecake with my Oreo Cream Pie and make it just like a Slutty Brownie but use crushed sandwich cookies instead of brownies.

It’s like eating 3 delicious desserts in one bite: cookie bars, cheesecake, and Oreos all layered into one sweet treat!

This recipe is so simple to assemble: A cookie crumble base is covered with an easy-to-make cheesecake filling and topped with premade cookie dough. The cookie dough and Oreos become soft when baked and perfectly complement the creamy texture of the middle.

How to Make Oreo Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

This Oreo Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars recipe is so simple! In mere minutes, it’s only a matter of making the cheesecake mixture and then baking it between a layer of crushed Oreos and chocolate chip cookie dough. It’s the best 3-in-1 dessert in every single bite!

  1. Make The Oreo Mixture: Combine the crushed Oreos and butter and press it into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
    Pro Tip: You can either use a food processor to pulse the Oreos until crumbly or place them in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
  2. Make The Cheesecake Mixture: Beat the cream cheese until smooth, add in the sugar, and continue mixing for 1 – 1 ½ minutes. Add in the sugar mix for 1 – 1 ½ minutes, then add in the vanilla extract and almond extract and mix until combined. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well after each egg. Pour the cheesecake batter on top of the Oreo base.
  3. Cut The Cookie Dough: Cut the cookie dough into 4 sections, flatten each piece, and lay them on top of the cheesecake layer.
  4. Bake: Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 35 to 40 minutes, until the top is golden brown.
  5. Chill: Allow the bars to rest for 30 minutes, cover and chill in the refrigerator for 3 hours.
  6. Cut: Remove the chilled bars by lifting the parchment paper from the baking dish and slice into 16 – 2 ¼ inch x 2 ¼ inch pieces.

Tips

  • Line the baking pan with foil or parchment paper to lift the cheesecake bars out easily.
  • Chill the cheesecake bars completely before cutting them into bars. These bars taste better after being refrigerated for a few hours.
  • You can substitute homemade chocolate chip cookie dough for the premade cookie dough.
  • You can add crumbled Oreos or chocolate chips into the cheesecake layer.
  • Don’t worry about sealing the cookie dough, it will easily seal itself as it bakes.

Storage Tips

  • To Store: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
  • To Freeze: You can freeze the bars for up to 2 months. Wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and a layer of aluminum foil. Allow the bars to thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving.
