Chocolate Chip Oreo Cheesecake Bars

Chocolate Chip Oreo Cheesecake Bars

In my opinion, it doesn’t get much better then these simple Chocolate Chip Oreo Cheesecake Bars. These cheesecake bars have a thick, sturdy, Oreo crust, which I love. There is nothing worse than cheesecake bars with a thin, soggy crust. On top of the Oreo crust, is a smooth, creamy cheesecake that is loaded with mini chocolate chips.

These cheesecake bars are so easy to make and the thing I love most is that I don’t feel as guilty eating two of these as I do when I eat two pieces of cheesecake. Making cheesecake bars one of my favorite desserts to make and eat, especially, ones topped with mini chocolate chips!

Chocolate Chip Oreo Cheesecake Bars

JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:

✔ To prevent the mini chocolate chips from sinking to the bottom of the cheesecake, I like to toss the mini chocolate chips in about 1/2 Tablespoon of four before I add them into the cheesecake mixture. I also like to toss the mini chocolate chips I’m using to sprinkle on top of the cheesecake in about 1/2 Tablespoon of flour, so they don’t sink into the cheesecake too much, I like them to just sit on top of each cheesecake bar.

✔ To make it super easy for you to cut these cheesecake bars into squares, line your 9×9 inch baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang on the sides and spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. Once the bars have chilled for at least 1 hour, lift the bars out of the pan, folding down the aluminum foil sides. Then use a sharp knife to cut the brownies into squares. SUPER EASY!

If you don’t want as thick of cheesecake bars, you can use a 9×3 inch pan instead of the 9×9 inch pan I used to make these bars. Either way they will be delicious!

    Salted or Unsweetend butter?

    • Jenn — May 11th, 2016 @ 11:22 am

      You can use whatever butter you would like with this recipe! 🙂

  2. Alicia Wilson — June 24, 2015 at 6:40 pm

    I made this in a 9×13 and they look like they are ok. Took them out around 50 mins. Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Aimee — June 24, 2015 at 12:41 pm

    Hello, Just wondering if parchment paper would be fine instead of foil for lining? Making this for my sisters Birthday with few tweaks by request. Thank you for the recipe!

    • Jenn — June 24th, 2015 @ 2:19 pm

      Yes, parchment paper would be fine. Just don’t forget to spray it with non-stick cooking spray! 🙂

  4. Sara — March 9, 2015 at 3:30 pm

    If I only have 2 packages of cream cheese, will it be fine?

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — March 10th, 2015 @ 5:55 pm

      Unfortunately, you need to use 3 packages of cream cheese for this recipe to work correctly.

    I made these bars they are wonderful!!! Do you happen to know the nutritional value such as fat, sat fat and calories?

  6. Becky Best — March 1, 2015 at 11:53 am

    Hi, if I do it in a 9X13 pan, will the baking time be less? If so, by how much? Thanks 🙂

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — March 1st, 2015 @ 12:33 pm

      I have never made these cheesecake bars in a 9×13 inch pan. But I would say, bake for 40 minutes.

  7. Stephanie K. — February 28, 2015 at 10:14 am

    Will an 8×8 pan work as well?  I thought I had a 9×9 and can’t seem to locate it anywhere in my house.

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — February 28th, 2015 @ 10:26 am

      Yes, an 8×8 inch pan will work perfect! 🙂

  8. Michelle — February 28, 2015 at 10:04 am

    Sweet or semi-sweet chocolate chips?

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — February 28th, 2015 @ 10:28 am

      I used semi-sweet mini chocolate chips, but you can use which ever chocolate chips are your favorite! 🙂

  9. Tammy Popejoy — February 27, 2015 at 11:58 am

    I do not have food processor but have stand up mixer. Could you use blender to pulse cookies and butter? 

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — February 27th, 2015 @ 12:04 pm

      Yes, that should work fine. Just make sure that your butter is softened. 🙂

  10. K. Patterson — February 15, 2015 at 8:37 am

    I make this into little cupcakes. Start checking them after baking for 30 minutes.

  11. Katee — February 14, 2015 at 10:34 am

    when pulsing the Oreos- do we need to remove the cream filling first or keep it

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — February 15th, 2015 @ 3:50 pm

      Keep the cream filling!

  12. Ariel — February 13, 2015 at 8:09 am

    Do you recommend melting the butter for the crust? Or room temperature? Or cold? They look so delicious, I can’t wait to try them!

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — February 14th, 2015 @ 9:16 am

      I recommend room temperature butter! Enjoy, they are delicious!! 🙂
