You can never go wrong with Oreos, cheesecake and chocolate. This no-bake recipe for double chocolate Oreo cheesecake from Erren's Kitchen is perfect for lazy days. The cheesecake crust is made from a combination of crushed Oreos and butter while the decadent filling consists of more crushed Oreos, melted dark chocolate, and cream cheese. To say the least, this cheesecake is rich.
The beauty of this dessert is that is does not require too much attention to detail. By that, I mean you are not glued to the stove or the oven. The only step in this recipe that could potentially be a bit finicky is melting the chocolate in a double boiler because you need to make sure that the water stays far away from the chocolate so that it does not burn or seize. To avoid this problem completely, melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals.
