To make the cheesecake, first stir together melted butter and Oreo cookie crumbs to form the base. Then press the mixture into the bottom of an 8×8 inch pan lined with aluminium foil.

For the chocolate cheesecake filling, first whip 1 cup whipping cream with a little powdered sugar until peaks form. Then in a separate bowl beat together the cream cheese, the rest of the powdered sugar, sour cream, and melted chocolate. Then the whipping cream gets mixed into the cream cheese mixture, and we’re done with the filling.

Spread the creamy chocolate cheesecake mixture over the Oreo cookie crust, and our work is done. Pop the cheesecake in the fridge for at least 4 hours to chill, then serve.

You can top each slice with a drizzle of chocolate sauce, fresh berries, and whipped cream. I’ve also made it for Christmas parties with a sprinkle of crushed candy canes – which is always a huge hit.
