Hello, it’s Haley here! You can usually find me over at Flour Covered Apron. But today, I’m honored to be here on Oh Sweet Basil, and excited to bring you the recipe for these out-of-this-world peanut butter cheesecake Oreo brownies. Oh, you read that right, my friend!

Peanut butter.

Cheesecake.

Oreo.

Brownies.

I might as well start by confessing to you that I have a borderline obsession with peanut butter and chocolate. Seriously, I would live off peanut butter and chocolate if I could. And I’m well on my way to trying every combination you can dream up involving these two ingredients. As part of that mission, I recently developed a peanut butter cookies and cream layer cake recipe, which happens to be exactly how these peanut butter cheesecake Oreo brownies came to be as well!

Inspired by leftover Oreos from the cake, and some cream cheese that I happened to have on hand, I wanted to make a cheesecake brownie bar with the same peanut butter, chocolate, and Oreo combo. Cheesecake is one of those things that automatically increases the indulgence factor of any dessert, so I knew it would be the perfect addition to these brownies.

And I’m all about indulgent desserts, so let me tell you about the five layers of goodness in these peanut butter cheesecake Oreo brownies! Naturally, we’re starting off with a base of super fudgy brownies. This recipe calls for both melted chocolate and cocoa powder in the batter because in my opinion, you can never go wrong with more chocolate!

Second, comes a layer of Oreos. I used straight-up whole Oreos because I just love the look of the cookie baked into each bar. Third, right in the middle, is the creamy peanut butter cheesecake filling, which is then topped with more brownie batter. And finally, we’re covering the top of these brownies with more Oreos (crushed this time) to finish it all off!

You will need to chill these for at least a few hours before they are ready to slice, so you’ll want to plan ahead. Trust me, I know it’s tempting to dig in right when it comes out of the oven. But, I promise, these peanut butter cheesecake Oreo brownies are well worth the wait. Happy baking!

Will Peanut Butter Cheesecake Oreo Brownies spoil if not refrigerated?

Because these Peanut Butter Cheesecake Oreo Brownies have been baked, it is generally safe to let them stay at room temperature for a day or two, but if we won’t eat them right away, I’ll usually store them in the refrigerator or freezer.

Can You Freeze Peanut Butter Cheesecake Oreo Brownies?

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Oreo Brownies, like most other baked goods, can be frozen successfully, though we would be a little cautious on freezing anything which has a cheesecake swirl or layer as these can sometimes “sweat” a little on thawing (they are fine to eat but may feel a little moist on the surface).

    • Hi Jacqui, I would strongly recommend refrigeration because of the cheesecake filling!

  • When you talk of good dark chocolate, do you mean unsweetened?

    • Reply
    • Hi Pat, not unsweetened, just a good quality bar of baking chocolate. You’ll find them in the baking aisle, near the chocolate chips. Hope that helps!
