This is one of the most amazing cheesecake recipes I’ve ever come across! And it is so delicious, and so versatile – great combination of cookies and cream.

 

This is by far my favourite cheesecake recipe EVER!  Unfortunately I haven’t had much success with making it myself, but Grant is the guru of this recipe.  Every single time it turns out perfectly – creamy, chocolate-y goodness. 

Couple of points to note:

  • Make this recipe gluten-free by substituting any type of gluten-free cookie, such as Chocolate Peanut Butter cookies, for the Oreos.  You don’t need as much butter for the base, and it is still very yummy.
  • Use any type of cookie (ginger nut, arrowroot, etc) and process similar to the Oreos.
  • Add blueberries or other types of fruit as a fill-in.
  • Add cocoa powder and milk cooking chocolate instead of white chocolate.

Can’t go wrong with anything that combines cream cheese, chocolate and sugar … unless you want to add peanut butter as well – might try that next time!
