Oreo Chocolate Marble Cheesecake

Here's another yummy cheesecake recipe! I made the crust from one recipe, and the filling from another. I added extra Oreos from the crust on top just to make it extra delicious. The filling recipe I found online wasn't very good. It didn't mention that you need to add the cream cheese or the sugar. I figured out the cream cheese part but almost didn't catch the missing sugar! That would have been gross! So my lesson here is, always be careful with recipes you find online!

Oreo Chocolate Marble Cheesecake

  • 24 Oreo cookies
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
  • 3 pkg (750 ml) cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • ½ tsp vanilla

For the crust, place 16 of the Oreo cookies in a large ziploc bag, and roll with a rolling pin to crush finely. Mix with the melted butter and press into the bottom of a springform pan.

Beat together the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, and 2 tsp vanilla until well blended. Beat in the flour, and then beat in the eggs.

In a separate bowl, mix 1/4 cup each of cocoa powder and sugar together. Add in the oil, 1/2 tsp vanilla, and about half of the cheesecake mixture.

Alternate spooning in the plain and chocolate cheesecake mixtures on top of your crust, ending with dollops of chocolate on top. Use a knife to gently run through the cheesecake, creating the marbled effect. Add some of the extra crushed Oreos on top.

Bake at 450 ºC for 10 minutes. Without opening the oven door, lower the temperature to 250 ºC and bake for 30 minutes, and then turn off the oven and leave it for another 30 minutes. Loosen the sides with a knife and cool.
