Things are a little different now, but we still get those old cravings every once and a while and this treat is the perfect way to satiate said cookies n’ cream cravings…by combining it with cheesecake…win-win. While we’ve cultured our palates a bit with foods other than Oreo cookies, a part of us will always love the sweet and creamy, chocolatey duo, and this dessert is our way of paying homage to it.
