Chocolate cheesecake bars are a rich dessert made with chocolate flavored cheesecake and an oreo crust. This treat is a chocolate lover’s dream!
I’m not sure why, but I have been on such a cheesecake kick recently. This week I made these intense chocolate cheesecake bars, last week it was nilla wafer cheesecake pie and last month I made raspberry cheesecake bites. It’s only a matter of time until I turn into cheesecake.
But of the three I just mentioned, the chocolate cheesecake may be my favorite. It is rich, smooth and most importantly chocolatey. I just can’t resist chocolate.
When this dessert was baking in the oven, the most heavenly chocolate aromas filled my kitchen. Every bite delivers the most intense chocolate flavor. The fluffy yet thick cheesecake melts away in your mouth, while the Oreo crust gives its own irresistible flavor.
The lucky ones who tasted these chocolate cheesecake bars could barely finish their first bite before sending their compliments to the chef. This dessert is that good.
It is also pretty easy to make from scratch. The Oreo crust is literally just Oreo cookies and melted butter pressed into a pan. The chocolate cheesecake filling requires only five ingredients (most of which, if not all, are probably in your kitchen).
Just whip the filling ingredients together and pour is over the crust. Bake and chill the cheesecake bars. Voila! This chocolatey dessert is ready to enjoy.
The best advice I can give for this recipe is to wait for the melted chocolate to cool. Obviously you still want the chocolate to be melted, but if it is still pretty warm it will cause the cheesecake filling to seize up before pouring onto the crust. Nobody wants that!
I suggest melting the chocolate after you make the Oreo crust. Preheat the oven and make the filling. By the time you’re ready to add the melted chocolate to the filling, it should be the proper temperature.
Chocolate lovers get your baking pan ready and pull out the ingredients. This recipe is undoubtedly for you!
