Oreo Cheesecake


Oh-so-chocolatey!  Yes indeed.  The cake was loaded with lots of different kinds of chocolate and waffle and it was for my little nephew.
I made this football cake for my little nephew on his last birthday. 

 This year I decided to bake his favourite Oreo Cheesecake for his 3rd birthday.  But I thought the cake itself would be quite boring for a boy.  Therefore, I decided to top up with variety of chocolates.  He and another of my older nephew, both were so thrilling over the cake.  They were arguing who should eat what chocolates on the cakes and when it was sliced into serving pieces, they fought over who would eat the Oreo cookies and Kit Kat.   Haha! I’m sure this cake is definitely for boys of his age.
I used Philadelphia cream cheese and needless to say, Kraft’s recipe for this oreo cheesecake.  The idea of loading the cake with chocolates and waffles came from my FB friend, Weilee.  She is really good in cake decoration.
 All ready for Christmas Baking?  
Happy Baking!

36 pcs     OREO Cookies, divided (I have used about 50 pcs)
¼ cup      Butter, melted
4 pkt       Philadelphia Cream Cheese (8 oz. each), softened (I used 2 pkt)
1 cup       Sugar  (I reduced to 80g)
1 tsp        Vanilla Extract
1 cup       Sour Cream (I used half cup)
4              Eggs (I used 2 eggs)

Remove the cream sandwich between the oreo cookies.  Place the cookies in resealable plastic bag.  Flatten bag to remove excess air, then seal bag.  Finely crush cookies by rolling a rolling pin across the bag.  Place crumbs in bowl.  Add butter and mix well.  Press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan (I used 7 inch springform pan).

Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended.  Add sour cream; mix well.  Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each just until blended.  Chop or crush remainding cookies into the batter.  Gently stir 1½ cups of the chopped cookies into batter.  Pour over crust; sprinkle with remaining chopped cookies.

Bake 1 hour 10 mins (depending on individual oven) or until center is almost set.  Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim.  Refrigerate 4 hours.

Chocolate glaze
250g       Milk chocolate
4 tbsp      Heavy cream

Combine the heavy cream and chocolate in a small pot and heat over medium, whisking until smooth.

Let stand until thickened, about 30 minutes, spoon the glaze all over the cake, smoothing it over the top and let it runs over the side of the cake.

Top up the cakes with variety of chocolate according to your own creativity.

Let the cake stand until glaze firms up about 1 hour before slicing.
