  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips

Cookies and Cream Cheesecake:

  • 16 oz cream cheese
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • Blue gel food coloring
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 15 regular Oreo cookies, crushed

Chocolate Ganache:

  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Pinch of salt

To Decorate:

  • Chocolate chip cookies, broken into pieces


  1. Blondie Base: Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour an 8-inch springform pan. Melt butter with salt and brown sugar in a microwave-safe bowl. Let cool slightly. Stir in egg and vanilla, then gradually mix in flour. Fold in chocolate chips. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Bake for 15-16 minutes. Cool completely.
  2. Cheesecake Layer: Reduce oven temperature to 300°F. Beat cream cheese, cornstarch, sugar, and salt until smooth. Add whipping cream, blue food coloring, and vanilla, mixing well. Add eggs one at a time, then fold in crushed Oreos. Pour over cooled blondie layer. Prepare a water bath for baking.
  3. Baking: Wrap springform pan in foil and place in a larger baking tray with water halfway up the pan. Bake for 60-70 minutes until set but slightly jiggly. Turn off oven, open door slightly, and let cool inside for 15-30 minutes. Remove, cool to room temperature, then refrigerate overnight.
  4. Ganache and Decoration: Microwave chocolate chips, cream, and salt until smooth. Cool slightly until thick. Spread over chilled cheesecake and top with broken chocolate chip cookies.


  • Use high-quality blue food coloring for a vibrant color.
