Oreo Cheesecake BitesI think my boys are the biggest Oreo fans in the world. And, I think I just happen to be one of the biggest fans of cheesecake in the world. So when I came across these perfect little bites of deliciousness on Mel’s site, I knew they had to happen. Like, immediately. And happen they did.

A breeze to throw together – an Oreo crust, reserving a few cookies to chop up and add to the cheesecake mixture that I quickly whipped together while I toasted the crust for a few minutes in the oven. The hardest part is of course waiting for them to cool. Then they’re cut into squares and drizzled with dark and white chocolate. So not only are they easy, they’re impressive too. Perfect for the football get-togethers everyone is sure to start having!

The original recipe was for a 9X13, but I halved it to fit in an 8X8 – so you could certainly double this version. We all enjoyed a few last night, and I’m packing up the remainder to take to our late night rocket launch party tonight. Our relatively small NASA base here on the Eastern Shore is launching a rocket bound for the moon’s orbit this evening.

The payload it’s carrying is LADEE (Lunar Atmosphere Dust Environment Explorer), and it’s kind of a huge deal for us. If you’re in the area of the Eastern seaboard (north or south), go outside and look to the skies. Then come back here and tell me if you saw it! For those of you who aren’t in the viewing area, the launch will be broadcast live on NASA TV. I can’t wait to see Twitter light up with folks thinking it’s a UFO. We really are so excited, I couldn’t be prouder of all the folks at Wallops Flight Facility. Good luck lighting the candle on this bad boy, guys. Praying for fair skies, and no fishing boats in the hazard area!

    This looks yummy.

    I am confused about the cookies. Do you scrape the filling off? Please respond quickly if possible. Making it!

    I have the stuff to make a ganache instead of doing a drizzle on top, do you think that would work as well? I want to use the cream up before it goes bad and I don’t know what else to put the ganache on

    These are wonderful but the best part is I freeze them it’s like this makes them fantastic.
