Recipe: Oreo Cookie Cheesecake Bites

This is extremely calorific, but everyone deserves a bit of a treat!!  Enjoy in moderation!  This is adapted from the recipe on the Oreo website.

You will need:-
36 OREO Cookies (you'll need 4 standard packs)
100g butter or margarine, divided in to 75g and 25g.
400g cream cheese
200g sugar
200g crème fresh
1 tea spoon vanilla essence
4 eggs


Line a 13" x 9" baking tray with foil allowing a little of the foil to extend over the sides.

Finely crush 24 of your OREO cookies (I used my blender).

Melt 75g of butter and mix with the crumbs. Press this mixture in to the bottom of the prepared tray.

Beat the cream cheese and sugar with a mixer until blended. Add the crème fresh and vanilla essence mixing well.

Now add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each just until blended.

Chop remaining cookies. Gently stir into batter and then pour over the buttery biscuit base.

Bake for 45 minutes, or until centre is almost set then leave to cool. 

Meanwhile, microwave chocolate and remaining 25g of butter in a medium-sized microwaveable bowl on high for 45 seconds to 1 minute, or until the butter is melted.

Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is well blended.

Allow the mixture to cool slightly before spreading over the top of the cheesecake, then refrigerate for 4 hours.

Use the foil handles to lift the cheesecake from pan before cutting to serve.
