Golden Oreo Cheesecake Bars

โ€ข81 comments
The eternal debate.
No, I am not talking about Good vs. Evil, Democrat vs. Republican or even Jolie vs. Aniston.
Well, maybe Jolie vs. Aniston…but not today…
I’m talking Chocolate vs. Vanilla.
I mean, it truly is a hard choice…so many different factors play into the ruling…
If it’s ice cream, chocolate wins all the way.
If it’s cake, vanilla is the victor.
Chocolate chips or white chips…hmmm…now we have a problem.
Forget it, I don’t have to choose, I’ll take both!
My house is divided…50/50
BUT if you talk to my husband, vanilla comes out on top 99.9% of the time…only occasionally will he allow chocolate frosting on top of white cake.
When we buy Oreos in our house we buy regular for the kids and Golden for the elders.
Have you seen those Golden Oreos?
They are delicious…the only thing better is the Double Stuff Golden Oreo…I mean if we are going there we might as well go Double Stuff.
You only live once and all that.
I have seen many versions of regular (chocolate) Oreo Cheesecake bars…it seems like a perfect combo…until…oh yeah, you guessed it…
The Golden Oreo Cheesecake Bar.
ย A standing ovation would be appreciated but not entirely expected.
Thank you, thank you very much.
It seems like quite an obvious dessert, but these beauties are new to me and every bit as delicious as you would imagine.
So, to all you people out there where vanilla rocks your world, these are from me to you…with love ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi! Iโ€™m Shelly and Iโ€™m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesnโ€™t it?

    Boy do those look tasty. I have a confession to make, I have never, yes I did say never, had a vanilla oreo! GASP!!!! I know, I'm totally deprived.
    Well there are a couple reasons.
    1) in the past couple years my hubby has been listening to some friends and there are some foods that he doesn't want in the house. I know a terrible thing, but he thinks Oreos are the worst snack ever made. Personally, I think he doesn't want them around because he can't resist them. Anyway, we haven't had Oreos in our house for a long time. another GASP!!!! No less the vanilla ones!
    2) somehow vanilla oreos just don't seem right to me. Oreos are supposed to be chocolate. Maybe I'm just afraid I won't be able to resist them if I get some of those vanilla ones, just like hubby and the other ones.
    But BOY do those bars look yummy!!!!

    ok so i wasn't that interested in these…..until i scrolled down and saw the caramel!!! i love anything w/caramel ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Abby

    Oh my GOSH. That's amazing! And I don't discriminate between my Oreos. We're equal-opportunity eaters in this household!

  4. thehungryscholar

    Love the blog.

    I cannot choose between the two, it is like choosing between my children.

    You make vanilla look sexy though.

  5. kuriouskitteh

    I was just having this debate earlier today! But that is such brilliance, immortalizing golden oreos in a cheesecake bar.
    Oh, and Team Aniston ftw.

    I'm definitely on the vanilla side of the debate, and this cheesecake looks absolutely heavenly.

    Also, your blog has received the Sunshine Award. Stop by my blog to pick it up ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats!

  7. Barbara

    OK, now we're talking vanilla here! And that is my choice, even in ice cream. I have NOT seen vanilla oreos. Have I been under a rock???

    These look gooey, decadent, vanillaish, caramelly…all those things I love. Deeeevine!

  8. Natalie...

    this looks like heaven!! it looks so amazingly good, i would have to say that i am a fan of vanilla all the way, frosting, cake, ice cream..but not on the oreos..chocolate oreos are the only way to go haha. although the golden ones are extremely tasty.

  9. Chef Dennis

    caramel and cream cheese batter…your killing me!! those looks so very very good……
    great job with the golden oreo's!!

  10. Amy

    My daughter was just over my shoulder gasping at how yummy these look, and telling me that we need to go buy some Golden Oreos. She makes me laugh!!

  11. Diane {}

    Looks delicious, I'm a chocolate girl, but not with my cheesecake or other truly rich desserts then vanilla is the winner ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Ingrid

    Vanilla, baby! Hands down no question asked!

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! That looks insanely good. I SHALL be whipping it up for myself quite soon. I'm thinking it would make a fine birthday dessert.

  13. Whimsy Cookie Co.

    This looks soooo good!! I will definately have to make this. I am totally a chocolate oreo all the way!!
    And Team Aniston!! Angelina…weirdo!!
    Thanks for sharing!!

  14. foodlova

    I am totally with your husband on the vanilla wagon. I get razzed for it and people can't believe I would choose vanilla ice cream over chocolate, but that just weird-old-me! Thanks for the sweet recipe. Never thought of it, but now that you presented it – I'll give you a standing "O".
    (team Aniston, I mean, does everyone forget how weird Angelina used to be?! Wearing a vial of blood necklace and frenching her brother…)

  15. oneordinaryday

    As long as we're sticking to double stuff oreos, I would happily play for either team.

    I have to say, though, that these bars look positively delicious. I'm not sure they'd have the same ooh and ahh factor in chocolate.

  16. SprinkleBakes

    Oh man. Those look incredible! Great idea! The debate is a tough one… I have a little vanilla in my coffee every.single.morning. Would love to have one of your bars to go with my vanilla coffee. Mmmmmm.

  17. Linda V

    Yum golden oreo's, wonder if we will be able to get them here in Australia. I just made some Black Bottom Oreo Cupcakes, it's amazing how yummy they are baked into other things.

  18. Dream It Up Cookies

    Anything that has chocolate in more than one way in the title is what i'm all about. But I can still appreciate the sound and taste of "Golden Oreo Cheescake Bar" Looks delicious ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Joanne

    I have to say, I'm with your husband. I'm a vanilla girl. All the way. Unless you throw caramel into the mix. THAT would be tough.

    Love these bars! I actually have never had Oreos…but I will certainly be picking some up so i can make this!

  20. Raina

    Everything you make looks incredibly decadent. Though I am a hardcore chocoholic for sure, cheesecake with caramel and golden oreos sounds pretty darn good to me too:)

  21. Pat

    These look so Yummy! May have to try some of these this week. I have never had Golden Oreos before.

    Oh yeah – Team Aniston all the way!

  22. Molly

    I'm a vanilla fan 99.9% of the time. Ice cream, cake, icing, etc, etc. But I've never tried the Golden Oreos! This recipe looks awesome!

  23. Kristan

    1. How awesome is it that I am leaving the first comment.

    2. Unless someone else is leaving a comment right now and then I'm gonna look pretty dang stupid.

    3. Golden Oreos all the way.

    5. Team Aniston, no question.

    6. These look completely delicious.
