Birthday Cheesecake SquaresPosted by Cupcake Kelly on May 26, 2015 in Brownies & Squares, z | 1 comment
Hooray for long weekends! We had some friends from out of town visit. This is the first time someone non family has come to stay and I was so excited to bust out some hosting skills.
We don’t have a kitchen table, counter stools or a grill to barbecue but there will be cheesecake and lots of it! These are the most amazing bars. It’s like eating cake and ice cream at the same time.
I froze my bars and it has that great birthday cake taste but the chill makes it taste like ice cream. The bottom of the bar is golden crushed birthday cake Oreos, with a few crushed Oreos and rainbow sprinkles in the cheesecake batter. I dipped the tops in melted marshmallow candy melts and topped with more sprinkles.
25 golden birthday cake Oreos
3 tbs unsalted butter, melted
12 oz cream cheese, room temperature
6 tbs sugar
6 tbs sour cream, room temperature
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
8 Golden Birthday Cake Oreos, crushed
1 bag Marshmallow Candy Melts
sprinkles, for topping
- Preheat the oven to 325 F and line and grease a 9x9 inch baking tray with foil. In a food processor crush the cookies and then add the melted butter until the crumbs are damp.
- Push the cookies into the bottom of the prepared pan and bake for 10 minutes.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the cream cheese for three minutes until smooth, beat in the sour cream until combined. Add in the sugar, vanilla and eggs. Beat until smooth. Stir in the crushed Oreos and sprinkles. Pour the batter on top of the baked crust and bake for 30 minutes until the edges are set and middle is slightly wobbly.
- Leave to cool and then freeze overnight. Lift the foil out of the pan and slice into squares.
- Place the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds at a time until melted (thin with some vegetable oil if necessary). Dip the top of each square in the melts and then in the sprinkles. Freeze or refrigerate.
