Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 300 grams Oreo cookies with filling (1 regular pack, 25 cookies)
  • 200 grams good quality chocolate (or about 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips)
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream divided, cold
  • 750 grams cream cheese (24 oz, 3 packages), room temperature
  • 255 grams powdered sugar (2 cups)

Instructions

  • In a food processor, process the butter and cookies until cookies are fine crumbs and the mixture starts to stick together.
  • Place a piece of parchment paper in between the bottom and the rim of a 9" springform pan (optional -- just helps to remove the cheesecake later).
  • Press the crust mixture firmly into the bottom of the pan and about 1/2" up the sides. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine chocolate and 1/2 cup cream. Microwave in 20-30 second intervals on high, stirring well each time, until melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and melted chocolate, and beat on low speed until combined.
  • Add the remaining 1 cup cream. Beat on low until incorporated, then beat on high for 3-5 minutes, until thickened and fluffy (you are essentially whipping the cream, so it takes time!).
  • Spread into the prepared crust, cover, and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight. Slice and serve with whipped cream or as desired.

Notes

*An 8" springform pan will work just fine -- you will just have a taller cheesecake.
