No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Bites

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Bites

With Valentine's Day only a few days away, how about a tasty morsel for your sweetie, or maybe just to indulge yourself. The nice thing about these bites are that they are "bite size"!  So if you are trying to watch the calories, these little bites will do the trick. Now I can't say they are low calories, but you only need a small bite to satisfy your sweet tooth.

I have seen these made with graham cracker crusts but I had a package of Oreo's so I used them as my base instead. You could definitely use graham crackers if you want. 

Now wouldn't they make a special treat for your Valentine? You don't even have to bake them, but you do have to chill them so give yourself a little time.

Another great feature of these bites is that you can make them ahead of time and leave them in the freezer until ready and then dip them in chocolate. 

OK, maybe you don't like the idea of taking time to dip each one, no problem. Pour the chocolate over the top and then cut them into squares. Simple right?

If you do add the chocolate on top and then leave it in the freezer, thaw it in the refrigerator; if it goes straight from the freezer to room temperature, condensation will form and alter the appearance and texture.

I actually made a pan and dipped on half of it. The other half I wrapped up and will save for another special occasion.

No Bake Oreo Bites

Eclectic Red Barn: No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Bites
Ingredients
    For the crust:
  • 1 small package Oreos, finely crushed
    (You can always make a graham cracker crust)
  • For the cheesecake:
  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • For the coating:
  • 2 cups chocolate chips, melted

Instructions
  1. Line a 9x9-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Spray with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a food processor, add Oreos and whip until finely chopped and mixed.
  3. Transfer the Oreo mixture into prepared baking dish. Press the mixture down using the bottom of a measuring cup or glass to create an even layer. Freeze for 15 minutes.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer (or using a hand mixer), mix cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar, and vanilla on medium speed until smooth.
  5. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly on top of the chilled graham cracker crust. Freeze for at least two hours or longer.
  6. Transfer the frozen cheesecake onto a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, cut 1-inch-wide strips vertically then horizontally, creating mini cheesecake bites.
  7. Place cubes on a tray lined with parchment paper and keep cold in the refrigerator while you melt the chocolate.
  8. In a medium bowl, microwave the chocolate for 90 seconds, stopping to stir every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.
  9. Dip the top of a chilled cheesecake cube in the melted chocolate. Allow excess chocolate to drip off, and set it back on the tray. Repeat with the remaining cubes.
  10. Freeze for 15 minutes, then serve.

    1. Irene,
      They were so easy to make. The only part that took some time was dipping each one into chocolate, but as I said, you could just spread it over the top and be done.
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
      Have a great weekend.
      Hugs,
