These oreo cheesecake bars are so delicious! Made with a buttery graham cracker and Oreo crust, a super creamy and a super velvety and creamy cheesecake filling full of Oreo cookie pieces. A foolproof dessert recipe the whole family will love!

Let’s be honest, Oreo cookies are pretty amazing. In a milkshake, or stuffing chocolate, or served with ice cream there’s something about adding oreo to traditional desserts that makes them feel a little more special.

I always loved those thick Oreo cheesecake slices you can find at some popular restaurants, however making a full cheesecake can be a little bit challenging, especially if you are not a seasoned baker. Cheesecake bars on the other hand? So easy and foolproof!

These Oreo Cheesecake bars are incredibly good! The curst is super crunchy and has a subtle chocolate flavor. The filling is super creamy and velvety and studded with Oreo pieces. You can make the bars as big or tiny as you want. Cut big squares if you are planning to serve it as a standalone dessert or cut small bite size pieces if you want to serve it as a grab and go snack that’s perfect for little hands.

How to make an Oreo crust for pies or cheesecakes

This Oreo crust works not only for this cheesecake recipe but also for pies or even for cold desserts you want to serve in little glasses (like parfaits and mousses!).

To make it, I like to mix graham crackers with Oreo cookies. Some recipes call for only Oreo cookies but I find that to be a little too sweet and overpowering. Adding the graham cracker makes the crust more subtle and delicate.

I bake the crust for a couple of minutes before filling it just to make it sturdier so when we slice the bars they hold their shape. If you prefer to use it for a no bake cheesecake or for any other recipe feel free to omit the baking step.
