Ingredients

  • 9 oreos
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

Directions

  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips with 1/4c whipping cream. Whisk every 30 seconds until fully combined. Set aside to cool.
  • In a food processor blend 6 Oreos into crumbs. You should get 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp Oreo crumbs. Fill the bottom of a parfait cup with 1/4 cup.
  • In a stand mixer with the whisk attachment whip the remaining 3/4 cup whipping cream into soft peaks. Add vanilla and whip into stiff peaks. Scrape into a bowl and set aside. With the paddle attachment beat the cream cheese until it's super smooth - no lumps people! Sift the icing sugar into the cream cheese and beat well, scraping down sides as you go. Add 1/2 of the whipped cream to the cream cheese and stir until just combined. In the processor pulse 3 Oreos until roughly crumbled and stir into cream cheese. Spoon half of the Oreo cheesecake into the parfait cup and spread evenly.
  • Pour half of the ganache over the Oreo cheesecake layer. Sprinkle the second half of the Oreo crumbs over the ganache, saving 1 tbsp for garnish. Spoon the second half of the cheesecake out and spread evenly before pouring the rest of the ganache on top.  
  • Pipe the reserved whipped cream over the ganache and sprinkle with 1 tbsp remaining Oreo crumbs. Grab two spoons and dig in!
