This cheesecake is as fun to make as it is to eat and perfect for birthdays, parties, or any special occasion that calls for a little extra sparkle.


For the Crust:

  • 2 cups Golden Oreo cookie crumbs (about 20 cookies)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the Cheesecake:

  • 4 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1½ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon butter extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¾ cup colored sprinkles (jimmies)

For the Topping:

  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • Pink gel color
  • 1 container (8 ounces) Cool Whip, thawed
  • Additional sprinkles for decoration


  1. Prepare the Crust:
    • Pulse Golden Oreos in a food processor until finely crumbled. Mix with melted butter.
    • Press the mixture into the bottom of a 10-inch springform pan lined with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Make the Cheesecake Filling:
    • In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until light and creamy.
    • Mix in heavy cream, vanilla, almond, and butter extracts.
    • Add eggs one at a time, beating just enough to incorporate, careful not to overmix.
    • Gently fold in the sprinkles and pour the batter over the prepared crust.
  3. Bake the Cheesecake:
    • Preheat the oven to 325°F.
    • Place a large pan filled with water on the bottom rack of the oven to create a humid environment.
    • Bake the cheesecake on the middle rack for about 80 minutes or until the center is set but slightly wobbly.
    • Turn off the oven and let the cheesecake cool inside with the door slightly open to prevent cracking.
  4. Prepare the Topping:
    • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine white chocolate chips and cream. Microwave until melted and smooth, stirring occasionally.
    • Add pink gel coloring to achieve your desired shade of pink.
    • Pour the glaze over the cooled cheesecake, spreading to the edges.
  5. Decorate:
    • Decorate the top with swirls of Cool Whip and a generous sprinkle of colorful jimmies.


  • Ensure all ingredients are at room temperature to ensure smooth mixing and reduce the risk of lumps.
  • After adding eggs, mix as little as possible to prevent incorporating too much air into the batter, which can cause cracks.
  • For a perfectly smooth topping, allow the cheesecake to cool completely before adding the glaze.


  • This cheesecake can be refrigerated, covered, for up to five days, making it a great make-ahead option for parties.
  • For longer storage, wrap the cheesecake in plastic wrap and then aluminum foil, and freeze for up to two months.

Whether for a birthday, anniversary, or just because, it’s the perfect treat to make any day feel like a celebration.
