No Bake Oreo Cheesecake bars. Crushed Oreos for the base. A smooth mix of white chocolate, cream cheese, and Oreo chunks for the filling. And the topping is scattered Oreos, and dark chocolate. And you don’t have to bake it. You already know you’re going to like this one.
This has been a challenging post to write. Challenging for three reasons:
– I don’t know how to describe Oreos.
– I don’t know how to shoehorn a link to one of my previous posts into this one.
– I don’t know how to not eat all my Oreos during prep.
So I’m going to do what I always do when something feels a little overwhelming. I’m going to compartmentalise, and break down my bigger task into smaller ones. And to help with that, I present—HEADINGS! (Yes, bestie, I genuinely do find headings that exciting.)
What are Oreos?
You know what Oreos are.
You should know that they’re sweet. Delicious. But very sweet. And that was actually a challenge while testing this recipe. My initial versions were just far too sweet. Don’t worry though, I’ve toned that down by rebalancing the very technical Oreo to white chocolate to cheesecake ratio, and by drizzling dark chocolate all over the top of the final product. I know, I know. Where does such genius come from? Probably my stomach.
Totally Forced and Almost Unbearably Shameless Self-Promotion Section
This is actually a challenge with every one of my posts. The gurus of SEO (that is, Search Engine Optimisation) say that I should strive to direct traffic to, and keep traffic on, my blog. That I should write my posts in a way that people read one recipe of mine after another. And a lot of the time, that’s not so bad. For example, if I’m writing about Croissant French Toast, I’ll link to the very easily-connected Baked French Toast recipe, or Nutella & Dark Chocolate French Toast recipe.
But what do I link to in this post? I don’t have any other Oreos recipes (yet)! So do me a solid, bestie. Share this post. And write a comment below. Make your own Oreo Cheesecake Bars, and post them to Instagram, with the #ChocolatesAndChai so that I can see them. Like my Facebook page. Retweet my tweets. Re-pin my pins. And come do my dishes.
And because I’ve clearly not found any cunning way to promote Chocolates & Chai at all in this section about promoting my blog, please follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, and sign up via email to stay on top of everything happening on my blog!
(And then share my posts with all your friends.)
What Should I Do if I Ate My First Box of Oreos?
You know, I feel I shouldn’t tell you what to do. Instead I’ll share what I did. I bought another box of Oreos….which I also ate. So I bought two more boxes of Oreos. And I ate one of them, while using the other for this recipe. (Oh, and I should mention quickly… you don’t have to use actual Oreos for this recipe. Any similar Cookies & Cream type biscuit will work just dandy.)
