These Oreo Cheesecake Bars will give you that delicious taste of cheesecake that you know and love, without the difficulty and stress of an entire cheesecake. They are easy and quick to make and will impress anyone that eats them!

I have tried making a whole cheesecake four different times and have only been successful once. It was with this Orange Chocolate Cheesecake. {Which tastes amazing, might I add.} The other ones have all tasted great and at least looked like a cheesecake, but the middles all sank in and they cracked every single dang time!

I hear that over mixing is usually there reason for the cracks and cooking to quickly is the reason for the sunken middle, but even when trying to avoid those two things, it still happens. So annoying. One day, I will get it perfect and when that happens, you will definitely be hearing about it!

In the meantime, I think I can be happily content with these cheesecake bars instead. We’ve made a Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Bar and Reese’s Cheesecake Bar, but I will have to admit that these Oreo ones are my favorite. I love that you get that rich creamy taste of cheesecake, but it literally takes half the time and less than half the stress.
