oreo cheesecake bites {recipe}

Hello there, deliciousness!

Cheesecake has always seemed like one of those intimidating things to make. No clue why. But I love how simple this recipe is. I took a batch to a church party last weekend and miiiiight have hidden a batch in our own freezer too. And then they miiiiight have disappeared entirely too quickly.

FYI, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to make this. The actually cooking is minimal, but as with all cheesecakes, there is a bit of sitting time as you allow it to stand in the fridge. 

: :  Ingredients  : :

 - 1 package of Oreos
 - 1/4 cup of butter, melted
 - 4 packages of cream cheese {8 ounces each}
 - 1 cup of sugar
 - 1 cup of sour cream
 - 1 teaspoon of vanilla
 - 4 eggs
 - 4 ounces of semisweet chocolate {optional}
  - 4 ounces of white chocolate {optional}

First, preheat your oven to 325 degrees. 

Then cover your 9x13 pan in tin foil. 

Crush 2/3 of the Oreos and mix with the melted butter. Apply this to the bottom of the pan as your crust.

Now grab a large bowl and soften your cream cheese. Mix with sugar.

Then add in sour cream and vanilla. Mix again.

Next, add in your eggs, one at a time, mixing it after each egg.

And finally, crush the remaining Oreos and add into the mix. 

Pour the mix over your crust.

Bake for 30-40 minutes. You'll want to make sure the edges are set and just starting to brown and that the middle is almost set. 

Wait until the cheesecake is completely cooled from the oven, then move it into the fridge for two hours. 

Upon removal, removing the cheesecake by grabbing the edges of the tin foil and lifting it out of the pan. I always like to cut the ugly edges off before I slice it up into squares.

And finally, feel free to melt the semisweet and white chocolate to drizzle on top!
I'd recommend letting these set in the fridge for a bit longer.

Personally, I love mine straight out of the freezer!!
