  • 1 cup oreo crumbs

Cheesecake Filling

  • 1 pint whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup + 1 tbsp granulated sugar divided
  • 16 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/4 cup butter room temperature
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 3.4 oz pkg cheesecake flavored pudding mix
  • red food coloring gel

Cream Cheese Glaze

  • 1 tbsp salted butter
  • 2 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • milk to thin


  • Combine the crushed Oreos and melted butter for the crust.
  • Press into the bottom of a 9 inch, parchment lined springform pan.
  • Place in the fridge or freezer until the filling is ready.
  • To make the cheesecake filling, whip together the cream and 3/4 cup sugar until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the cream cheese and butter until smooth.
  • Add in the 1 tbsp sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Creaming for 1 minute.
  • With the mixer still on, slowly add in the cocoa powder and cheesecake flavored pudding mix (just the powder!) until completely incorporated and smooth.
  • Add the whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture and beat until smooth.
  • Add in the red food coloring until you've reached your desired color.
  • Pour into the crust, spreading until the cheesecake is smooth on top. Place in the fridge.
  • Make the Cream Cheese Glaze by combining the butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar until thick and creamy. Slowly add milk to the mixture until you have a glaze that is your preferred thickness.
  • Spread over the top of the cheesecake and sprinkle with Oreo crumbs, if desired.
  • Refrigerate until serving! For best results, let it chill in the fridge overnight before slicing.
