Who loves cheesecake? Me me me!! Who loves Vanilla? My husband. I am a die hard choc-o-holic, and proud of it. Kale, not so much. He’s a vanilla man. Just a simple, easy going, vanilla man. I believe the only chocolate dessert he gets excited about is chocolate chip cookies, and that’s about it.
I decided I need to make him more vanilla-based desserts, because I just love the guy, so when I saw these amazing bars over at Cookies and Cups I knew Kale would love them! They were really easy to make, and oooooh la-dee-da are they good! Mmmmmm I guess you’ll just have to make them yourself to find out : )
GOLDEN OREO CHEESECAKE BARS
Recipe By: Cookies and Cups
28 Golden Oreos, divided 18 and 10
3 tablespoons, melted Butter
1 cup Caramel bits (or 24 wrapped caramels)
1 tablespoon water
2 pkgs (8 oz each) Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup Marshmellow Fluff
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Crush 18 Golden Oreos (cream and all) in a large ziplock bag or a food processor, until they are very fine crumb.
Pour crumbs into a 9 inch square pan. Add 3 tablespoons melted butter and combine using the back of a spoon to mix and press firmly into the bottom of the pan. Bake crust for 10 minutes or until golden. Let cool 10-15 minutes.
While crust is cooling unwrap your caramels, or if using caramel bits, pour into a bowl and add the 1 tablespoon of water. Set aside.
Now coarsely chop the remaining 10 Oreos. Set those aside as well.
Beat the softened cream cheese and marshmellow fluff with a hand mixer on medium speed. Beat until combined and smooth, scraping down the sides half way through.
Add the egg and beat for 30 more seconds on medium speed until incorporated.
Stir in the coarsely chopped Oreos.
Pour the batter into the prepared crust. Spread evenly into the pan. Now melt your caramels and water in the microwave for 60 seconds. Stir halfway through. When melted, drop by spoonfuls onto the batter.
Using a knife, swirl the caramel into the cream cheese batter. Dont go too deep or you’ll mess up the crust.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until center is set. Cool for 20 minutes on wire rack and then transfer to the refrigerator for 4-24 hours. Cut into squares when completely cooled. Enjoy!

i’ve died and gone to heaven! 🙂
Yeah, these are so going on my list…yum!!!
OH MY FLIPPING HECK…..HOLLY THESE ARE FAT FREE RIGHT?!…..
No way!!! These would be incredible!! What a great idea. Though, I’d have to get my hands on some vanilla oreo’s first. I’ve never heard of them!
Oh, my gosh!!! Such a decadent bar packed full of yummy ingredients! A winner for sure!
Seriously? That’s just what I need right now in my life! I’m not sure I even knew there were such things as vanilla Oreos. The few times I go down the cookie aisle I go straight for the chocolate Oreos, Chips Ahoy (my hubbys fav) or gingersnaps (my secret freezer addiction). Now I need to search these beauties out! Thanks for sharing,
We’re backward: The husband is the true chocolate lover in our house, and I’m always vanilla, vanilla, vanilla. Why do you make me read about such mouthwatering desserts right after I eat breakfast and brush my teeth? 🙂
Wow, those do look amazing. They’re so pretty, too.
Gotta try these babies! Oh yum. And you should do a family blog. It’s my online scrapbook/journal. I am terrible at the regular versions. I love scrolling back through earlier posts and so do the kids.
Just printed out that recipe. They look fantastic. I am a die hard chocoholic myself, but I think I will give these a whirl. Yum.
Two things the husband loves, oreos and cheesecake. Going to have to make this for him!
Yum! These look great. I am a total chocoholic too but rons favorite cookie is Oreo so will have have to see if he wants me to whip up some of these 🙂 have a wonderful weekend and thanks for coming by to link up.
I’m equal opportunity when it comes to Oreos- I never met one I didn’t like. 🙂 These bars look beyond delicious!
Just seeing that gorgeous 1st pic of them, I KNOW I’m going to make these! What a great combo! You know I’m a choco-holic too but everyonce in awhile, I crave a
non-chocolate dessert and this looks amazing!!
Oh my heavens Holly these look absolutely DELICIOUS! I have never tried the golden oreo’s but will be soon cause this looks so good!
What a great idea. I love the new flavors and am looking forward to trying this. I’ve never tasted the vanilla Oreos. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary
Hi Holly! This is so creative! I’d love to try this cheesecake bars. So unique. Haha I’m a chocoholic too. 🙂 Hope you are having a good weekend so far!
Holly- Thanks for stopping in to share your recipe. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
This looks yummy! I have not seen golden oreos before! Never knew there is a golden oreo! Hahaha! Sounds funny isn’t it, but seriously I have only seen the choco ones sold here! Now I have to keep a lookout for these golden oreos! Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe!
With all those delicious ingredients I know your bars were truly something special.
Like he ‘him’, I’m not that much of a chocolate person…so these blondies look and sound to me 🙂
these look amazing!
Oh my! My husband would flip over this. His favorite dessert is cheesecake, he’s crazy about Oreos (with Golden Oreos as his favorite), loves marshmallows, and caramel, too. I must make this for him! It looks good to me, too 🙂
Could I perhaps just use jarred caramel sauce instead
