Mint Cheesecake Bars

Mint Cheesecake Bars!  A cool and creamy mint cheesecake baked on top of a mint oreo crust.  Drizzle with some extra chocolate for a decadent treat!  The fun green color makes this dessert perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!

Mint Cheesecake Bars!  Mint and chocolate are one of my all time favorite combinations.  Ever.  Add a little cheesecake in there and I might explode from happiness.  And can we just take a moment to admire the green beauty of these cheesecake bars?? I’m kind of pleased with how the color turned out.  No worries I will share the exact food coloring I used with you down below in the recipe.  Just stay tuned.

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up.  Which makes me feel that all things should be green and mint.  Or even just minty.  March to me means mint!  If these Mint Cheesecake Bars don’t do it for you, you can always check out these Jr. Mint Cupcakes, or the Junior Mint Dessert Dip, or toss some of the green food coloring into these Peppermint Patties and they instantly become a little more St. Patrick’s-esque.  Personally I think these Mint Cheesecake Bars should satisfy any minty cravings though.

The base is made with Mint Oreos, which is just heavenly all on it’s own.  Then the creamy cheesecake layer is flavored with some peppermint extract.  Giving the entire dessert that perfect cool minty taste.  The recipe is based off of the Strawberry Cheesecake Brownies that I made not too long ago.  Those bars really reminded me of my love for cheesecake.  But seriously..how does a person forget about that??
