Loaded with Golden Oreos and white chocolate, Oreo Cheesecake Bars are the perfect dessert for any occasion.

I think the name pretty much sums up these bars, they are sinfully delicious. Packed full of both white chocolate and Golden Oreos, Oreo Cheesecake bars are the ultimate dessert.

I honestly cannot tell you how many times I have made these; definitely more than I can count!

Jeremy and I are both a huge fan of white chocolate, I feel like it isn’t used enough in desserts. The subtle flavor pairs perfectly with Golden Oreos.

I like to make this recipe whenever the white chocolate craving hits for us at home, but on more than one occasion, I have made them for bake sales and gatherings.

It’s an unexpected dessert that helps to break up heavier items on the dessert table. You know what I mean, when everything is rich chocolate chocolate chocolate, you need something a little lighter to reach for here and there.

These white chocolate bars really help balance everything out.

Oreo Cheesecake Bars are always a huge it when I make them, why not take a chance and try them out for yourself?!

WHY THIS RECIPE WORKS:

  1. It makes 9 bars but you can easily double the recipe if needed.
  2. Great for a make-ahead dessert option since it needs to set up in the fridge.
  3. Since the cheesecake layer is thin, this recipe does not need a water bath.

  • Golden Oreos
  • Salted butter
  • Full-fat Cream cheese (I like Philadelphia cream cheese)
  • Granulated sugar
  • Sour cream
  • Egg
  • Vanilla extract

  • White chocolate melting wafers

HOW TO MAKE OREO CHEESECAKE BARS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F degrees. Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. Place 12 of the Oreo cookies in a food processor and process them into crumbs. Drizzle in the melted butter and pulse a few more times until the crumbs are coated.
  3. Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Bake for 5 minutes, set aside to cool while the filling is made.

  1. Place the cream cheese, sugar, sour cream, egg, and vanilla into the food processor. No need to clean the food processor in between making the crust and filling. Pulse until combined and creamy. Add the white chocolate chips and pulse a few times to distribute evenly.
  2. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the crust and smooth out the top. Bake for 36 minutes or until the cheesecake mixture is just slightly jiggly right in the center.

  1. While the bars are baking, roughly chop the remaining 8 Oreos (or use a rolling pin). As soon as they are done baking, sprinkle the remaining Oreo pieces and gently press them into the top of the cheesecake. 
  2. Let sit on the counter until completely cool, and then cover with plastic wrap. Let sit in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours until set. 
  3. Cut into bars and drizzle with the melted chocolate wafers if using, let them sit for about 15 minutes for the white chocolate to harden, and serve immediately.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

WHAT IS THE BEST WHITE CHOCOLATE TO USE?

The best white chocolate to use is a good quality one. I like Ghirardelli or Guittard.

I normally use white chocolate chips, but you can use white chocolate bars or white baking chocolate in its place. Just cut them up finely before using.

I also use white chocolate melting wafers for the drizzle on top. My favorite brand for this is again Ghirardelli.

CAN I USE REGULAR OREOS INSTEAD?

Absolutely, make this recipe your own and use any flavor of Oreos you like. This is truly an oreo lovers dessert.

You could even fold in Oreo chunks or Oreo crumbs right into the cheesecake mixture. This will add even extra Oreo flavor!

CAN I ADD ANYTHING?

To add to the cheesecake layer:

  • Sprinkles
  • More crushed Oreo, as mentioned above
  • Nuts of any kind
  • Dried fruits

For the topping:

  • Whipped cream
  • Melted white chocolate instead of the melting wafers
  • Other cookie crumbs, such as shortbread or vanilla wafers
  • White chocolate ganache
  • White chocolate curls
  • Dusting of powdered sugar
  • Powdered sugar glaze

For the crust:

    I knew this recipe would be good just given the ingredients… but I couldn’t have imagined how incredible they actually were. The words “best dessert I’ve ever head” was said by multiple people at the table. Truly addictive. You have got to make this!

  5. 5 stars
    Really upset I can’t find the strawberry version of this 😭 it was my favorite. Using this to remake the strawberry cheesecake bars but if it was deleted I’m highly disappointed.
