Chocolate Cheesecake!

Chocolate Cheesecake Squares
(recipe from
  • 24 Oreo cookies, crushed (about 2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, melted
  • 4 pkg. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 pkg. (8 squares/8 oz) Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted, slightly cooled (I use semi-sweet chocolate chips instead; 8 0z)
  • 4 eggs

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Mix crumbs and butter; press firmly onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake 10 minutes.
  2. Beat cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add melted chocolate; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Pour over crust.
  3. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until center is almost set. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight. Cut into 32 squares to serve. Store leftover dessert squares in refrigerator.
These are perfection. Great flavor, great serving potential. Easy just using a cake pan rather than a springform. Oreo crust is heavenly. I usually half this recipe and put it in my 11x7 rectangle pan.
