Chocolate Oreo Cream Cheese Bars

I had Oreo's in the cabinet.

I don't usually buy Oreo's unless I need them for a recipe.

These Oreo's were a "gift!"  They had sat there long enough that I decided I'd do something with them.

So here's my little concoction.

I'm not sure if it's a new favorite of mine or not -- but the Mr. and two Cherubs really loved it.

Chocolate Oreo Cream Cheese Bars

Cake Layer

1 cake mix; I used milk chocolate
2 eggs
1 stick of butter, melted
Oreo cookies, broken

Cream Cheese Mixture

1 package cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
4 cups powdered sugar (1 pound)
1-2 tsp. vanilla, depending on taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix cake mix, 2 eggs, and butter together.  You'll have a very stiff dough.

Grease a 9X13 pan and press the dough into the pan evenly.

Using your hands, break the Oreo's and evenly sprinkle them on top of the dough.  I used 15-20 cookies; you can use as much or as little as you like . . . and.that all depend on how many Oreo's are left in the package!

Cream the cream cheese and eggs together.  Add 1 cup of powdered sugar at a time, mixing thoroughly.  Alternate with a bit of vanilla.  I used 2 tsp. of vanilla because I like my vanilla. 

Pour cream cheese mixture over Oreo/cake mixture.  Using a spatula, push the cream mixture over the entire surface.

Place in oven.  Bake for 35-45 minutes; checking after 30 minutes.  You'll want the top to be golden, but the cream cheese mixture, although thin, should set up similar to a cheesecake.  It's hard to test for doneness.
