I’m soo excited to share this with you!!! I found my perfect dessert, ever! I made this last night and I flipped out, it was beyond fabulous! It’s a cross between a cold pie, a cheesecake and a chocolate mousse! And then you have the cinnamon undertone that gives it a whole different dimension, and the little kahlua totally brings out the chocolate flavor, it’s just to die for! And it’s unbelievable easy and cheap to make! Here’s how!
All you need is a couple of simple ingredients:
Chocolate Cheesecake Pie
Makes 1 9in pie
- 2 sleeves of oreo cookies (crushed finely in food processor and if you don’t have one you can just fill a plastic bag with oreos and go over the bag with a rolling pin until they are perfectly crushed)
- 4 tbsp of butter(melted)
Directions: Preheat oven to 350F. In a bowl combine the crushed oreos with the melted butter and stir with a spatula until it resembles wet sand. Spread the wet oreos in a 9in pie plate(press them with your fingers) and make sure to cover the sides too. With a glass or a measuring cup, go over the oreo crust, applying a little pressure as you go to ensure your crust stays together. Bake for 6-8 mins or until set. Cool completely.
- 8 oz dark chocolate chips (melted and cooled)
- 2 packs cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- a small pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp half and half
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp kahlua
- 1/2 – 1 tsp cinnamon (depends on preference)
- chocolate chips for decorating
Directions: In bowl of electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, white sugar, brown sugar, salt, half and half and vanilla extract until nice and creamy about 2 mins. Add the melted chocolate, kahlua and cinnamon. Mix on medium for 2mins. Spread the mixture evenly in the cooled oreo crust. Top with some more chocolate chips. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
