Are you a fan of cheesecake? What about chocolate cheesecake? If the answer is yes, I have a great dessert for you! These chocolate cheesecake bars are literally to die for, as they’re filled with dark chocolate, cream cheese, and Oreos. The Oreos are actually used to make the base of the bar, along with butter and melted chocolate. The rest of the bars are made from a combination of cream cheese, melted chocolate, and heavy cream, all coming together to create a delicious dessert. The best part about these bars is you don’t have to bake them! Once everything is in place, just stick these in the fridge for at least 3 hours!
A lot of chocolate desserts can be very rich, which is why I included this chocolate mousse pie on the list to change it up a bit. You’ll start with an Oreo crust base, which you can either buy pre-made or make yourself. Then, you’ll need to whip up some heavy cream until you have stiff peaks. Fold into a mixture of melted chocolate, butter, marshmallows, and milk, then pour the mixture onto the Oreo crust. While the pie is chilling, whip up your remaining heavy cream, then spread over pie and garnish.
5. Oreo Pie
While we’re on the topic of pies, I thought I’d mention this next lovely chocolate dessert, made from everyone’s favorite chocolate cookie. That’s right, Oreos are the star of this next recipe! It’s made in a very similar way to our previous chocolate pie, but instead using vanilla pudding mix and crushed Oreos. Add some whipped cream to top this pie, and don’t forget to chill in the fridge before eating! Sprinkle with some extra crushed Oreos, then dig into this delicious chocolate dessert. You’ll find that’s it is the perfect amount of chocolatey flavor; not too rich but not too subtle.

If you’re up for a challenge in the kitchen, consider making these beautiful chocolate macarons! Macarons aren’t necessarily difficult to make, but they require a bit of skill and attention to detail, so you couldn’t exactly whip these up quickly like some of these other desserts. But, if you’re up to the task, go for it! There’s no way you could ever regret making something as crunchy, sweet, and delicious as macarons. Fill these delicious treats with a decadent chocolate ganache or frosting, and don’t forget to follow the instructions exactly! Have fun with these!
