Oreo Cheesecake Bars

It’s hard to say what my favorite part of this recipe is. The fudgy brownie crust (that’s easily made with box mix) is pretty fabulous… but I also LOVE that Oreo cheesecake layer! Both elements of these no bake cheesecake bars are so easy to toss together and compliment each other beautifully. The very best part? This Oreo bars recipe really couldn’t be any easier. After baking the box mix brownies, you whip up the cheesecake filling and spread it all across the top. Let it chill in the fridge and voila! You have your new favorite chocolate dessert recipe. 

However you slice ‘em, you’re gonna love more of the BEST dessert bars like Smores Bars, Fluffernutter Bars and Strawberry Cheesecake Bars.

Do I need to refrigerate these bars?

Yes! After you get everything assembled, you’ll want to chill these no bake cheesecake bars for a good 2-3 hours prior to serving. That way, they’ll keep their 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. Also, you’ll want to keep them stored in the fridge (if you happen to have leftovers) since the cheesecake layer will go bad if left at room temp for too long. 

How to Make Brownie Bottom Oreo Cheesecake Bars 

  • Prepare. Preheat the oven to whatever temperature is instructed on the box of brownie mix. Line a 9×13 pan with foil and spray it down with nonstick spray. 
  • Bake. Mix the brownie batter and bake the brownies according to package instructions. 
  • Cool. This is so important! 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.
  • Make the cheesecake layer. Beat together cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Fold in whipped topping and half of the crushed Oreos. 
  • Assemble and chill. Spread the cheesecake layer all over the cooled brownies. Top with the remaining crushed Oreos. Chill in the fridge for about 2-3 hours.

Storing Brownie Bottom Oreo Cheesecake Bars

You can store these Oreo cheesecake bars for up to 4 days in an airtight container in the fridge. It’s a great make-ahead recipe for potlucks and parties! Just note that the longer the bars stay in the fridge, the softer the top of the brownie crust will become from the contact with the cheesecake layer. 

Ingredient Notes

  • Brownie Mix – The brownie bottom is just from a good store bought fudge brownie mix.  Baking it in a 9×13 inch pan produces thinner brownies that are perfect to use as a crust!
  • Cream Cheese – Make sure the cream cheese is adjusted to room temperature prior to mixing it with the other ingredients. For the thickest, richest consistency, I recommend using regular cream cheese (not low fat). 
  • Sugar – There’s just enough granulated sugar in the cheesecake filling to sweeten the deal! 
  • Vanilla Extract – I always recommend using pure vanilla extract when possible. However, it’s not a stand-out ingredient in this recipe, so imitation will work just fine if that’s what you have. 
  • Whipped Topping – Cool Whip or an off brand is what you’ll need. 
  • Oreo Cookies – This is my favorite ingredient, of course! If you have any extras that you don’t just eat right away (can’t relate), use them to make my favorite Oreo Milkshake Recipe.
