Chocolate Chip Oreo Cheesecake Bars

In my opinion, it doesn’t get much better then these simple Chocolate Chip Oreo Cheesecake Bars. These cheesecake bars have a thick, sturdy, Oreo crust, which I love. There is nothing worse than cheesecake bars with a thin, soggy crust. On top of the Oreo crust, is a smooth, creamy cheesecake that is loaded with mini chocolate chips.
Ingredients:

  • 1 package Oreo cookies
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 3 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon flour
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

PRE-STEP: Preheat oven to 300F degrees. Line a 9 x 9 inch baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang on the sides. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
STEP 1: Using a food processor, pulse Oreo cookies and butter together until crumbly.
STEP 2: Press cookie crumbs onto bottom of prepared pan. Set aside.
STEP 3: Using an electric or stand mixer, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy.
STEP 4:  Add condensed milk and beat until smooth.
