CHOCOLATE CHIP OREO CHEESECAKE BARS

Chocolate Chips. Oreos. Cheesecake….the ultimate dessert bar!

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!

JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:

CHOCOLATE CHIPS:  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 flour 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.

 

LINE YOUR BAKING PAN: 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!

 

  THICKNESS: 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!
