Caramel Swirled Golden Oreo Cheesecake Bars

Today is national cream cheese brownie day, but I just decided to make cream cheese bars. That's close enough, right? It's a cream cheese I (Casey) have a new obsession with Golden Oreo's. If you have never had them, you should go buy them asap.. and make these cheesecake bars :) I loved these! There is something about cheesecake in bar form that is just amazing. It has the delicious texture and taste of a cheesecake without all the hassle of a cheesecake, even though baking is never a hassle to me! AND, I don't feel as guilty eating it.. Here's what you need for the cheesecake bars
Golden oreo's, butter, cream cheese, sugar, milk, egg, vanilla, and caramel sauce. Place some oreo's in a food processor
pulse until all oreo's are crumbly and completely ground up, then melt the butter and pour over the crushed oreo's
stir together and pour into an 8x8 inch baking pan. Press down evenly in the pan
In a medium-size mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese about 2 minutes and add the sugar
beat until fluffy and combined. Add the vanilla, egg, and milk
beat together until well combined, then add in the chopped oreos
fold in and pour over the prepared oreo crust
spread out evenly and pour the caramel over the cheesecake
Using a toothpick, swirl the caramel into the cheesecake
cool on a wire wrack and chill before cutting
here's the chunky pieces of oreo
and the gooey caramel
I could seriously eat the whole pan of these. SO good!
