Brownie Bottom Oreo Cheesecake Bars - These easy to make no bake cheesecake bars are rich and creamy, packed with Oreo cookies and feature a decadent brownie crust!
YOU GUYS. Brownie bottom cheesecake for president.
I'm serious, this is now in my top three favorite desserts.
I also may never ever ever use a traditional cookie crust again, because brownie for crust has completely won my heart.
If you are going to splurge on a dessert this summer, it needs to be this one.
The recipe makes a giant pan and serves 24 people - but, good luck not eating 3 or 4 of these yourself.
We're heading out for Chicago tomorrow and I'm seriously wondering if I can sneak some of these cheesecake bars in my bag on the plane??
CHECK OUT OUR VIDEO FOR THIS RECIPE BELOW!
These may have a tongue twister of a title, but that's just because they're filled up with so much goodness. They're insanely simple to make.
The brownie bottom is just from a good store bought, fudge brownie mix. Making it up in a 9x13 inch pan produces thinner brownies that are perfect to be used as a crust!
Our cheesecake filling is no bake, so you only need to heat up your oven once to bake the brownies.
Do let the brownies cool all the way before you top with the cheesecake, or you'll end up with a mess. I always stick my pan of brownies in the fridge and they only need about 20-30 minutes to cool. I'm impatient, what can I say?
After you get everything assembled, you'll want to chill these cheesecake bars for a good 2-3 hours before serving.
That way they will keep their pretty shape and not fall apart on you. Be sure to plan ahead for chilling time if you want to take these to a potluck or party.
Enjoy what I think is sure to be your new fave summer dessert!
I mean, how could it not be? Cheesecake, Oreo's, Brownie. Doesn't get better.
