These Oreo Cheesecake Bars are a great dessert recipe for the Super Bowl or any party!
When I think of the Super Bowl, I think of healthy foods. I think of green smoothies and kale chips and tofu and flax seed granola and…
That’s not right at all.
Let’s start over.
When I think of the Super Bowl, I think of wonton mozzarella sticks, giant bowls of Spicy Harlem Meatloaf Chili, hip-widening Creamy Hot Crab Dip, and bite sized desserts– many of them, preferably with chocolate.
We’ve had a good long run of healthy recipes here on the blog, but I hope you’re as ready as I am to jump back on the dessert train. I’ve grown to love cooking over the years, and I’ve really enjoyed this season of healthier recipes. But baking is my first love and there’s nothing like the warmth of the oven, the drum of my mixer blade, and the smell of dessert wafting from the kitchen to make my soul happy.
I figured if I was jumping back into this dessert train, I might as well go all out with two of my favorite things: Oreos and Cheesecake. I really don’t feel much explanation is in order. I mean, when you combine two things as amazing as Oreos and Cheesecake magical things happen. In fact, a unicorn might have actually been born when this came out of the oven.
These bars are easy to throw together, totally make ahead friendly, and, since they’re fairly rich, you can cut them small and feed a bunch of people (or just a few people who really love cheesecake).
So do your part to grow the unicorn population. Make Oreo Cheesecake Bars. Share them with your friends. Be the star of your Super Bowl party.
Then make another batch and hoard all the creamy, crunchy, chocolatey Oreo goodness for yourself. I don’t think the unicorns will mind.
