Oreo Crust ⁣⁣• 24 Oreo cookies ⁣⁣• 4 Tablespoons butter melted (56g) Chocolate Cheesecake ⁣⁣• 8 oz dark chocolate 60-75% (226g) ⁣⁣• 24 oz cream cheese softened to room temperature (680g) ⁣⁣• 1 cup sugar (200g) ⁣⁣• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ⁣⁣• ½ cup sour cream (120g) ⁣⁣• 3 eggs room temperature

Place your Oreo cookies in a food processor and process until pulverized to fine crumbs.

Add melted butter and pulse again until well-combined.

Pour cookie crumb mixture into prepared baking pan and use the back of a spoon to press the crumbs firmly into an even layer. Set aside.

Chop your chocolate bars into small pieces (if using chocolate chips, you do not need to chop) and place in a medium-sized bowl.

Microwave for 30 seconds, stir well.  Microwave again for 15 seconds and stir again, repeat until chocolate is smooth and completely melted.

In a large bowl, beat together softened cream cheese and sugar until ingredients are well combined.

Add sour cream and vanilla extract and stir well, pausing once to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl.

With mixer on low-speed, add melted chocolate and stir until completely combined.

Add eggs, one at a time, stirring on low-speed until just combined after each addition. 

Pour chocolate cheesecake batter evenly over prepared cookie crust.

Bake on 325F (160) for 40 minutes or until cheesecake is just set and slightly jiggly to the touch.

Slice and Enjoy!
