Oreo Creme Egg Cookie Bars are soft and chewy Easter cookie bars with a twist! Filled with Easter eggs and Oreo Creme Eggs for a cookies and cream flavour, the secret, showstopping element to these cookie bars is the Oreo Creme Egg cheesecake filling running through the middle of these cookie bars! Trust me when I say you want to make these ASAP for the BEST Easter treat!
Where have these been all my life? Seriously. I am obsessed with all parts of these Easter cookie bars. From the chewy cookies and cream flavoured cookie outside to the creamy, cookies and cream cheesecake filling and all the chocolate and Easter eggs in between… This is a recipe I will make again and again and I’m sure you will too!
Let’s Break this down.
The Cookie Bars
The cookie dough for these cookie bars is my go to cookie pie/cookie bar recipe that always turns out chewy, gooey cookie dough to create the perfect dense cookie treat. Its featured in too many recipes to count but they include the Nutella KitKat Cookie Pie, Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars and my Kinder Bueno Cookie Bars.
Its a very simple dough and allows for all the additions we want and need for these Oreo Creme Egg Cookie Bars.
In the cookie dough of these cookie bars we have a mixture of chocolate chips, crushed Oreo cookies, Chopped Easter Eggs and Chopped Oreo Creme Eggs. A number of changes can be made to the additions of these cookie bars so long as you keep the similar ratios.
- Creme Eggs in place of Oreo Creme Eggs.
- Cookies and Cream Easter Eggs in place of regular Easter Eggs.
- Cookies and cream chocolate replacing the Oreo Creme Eggs for other times of the year.
- Additional chocolate chips or chopped chocolate in place of Easter eggs for other times of the year.
You get the idea.
The Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Filling
The filling is super easy to make. A very quick and easy cheesecake with the addition of crushed Oreos and a couple of chopped Oreo Creme Eggs if you want.
Can you tell I’m obsessed with these Oreo Creme Eggs?
The end result is a vanilla, cookies and cream, creamy and chocolatey treat perfect for Easter! Soooo good!

Beat the cream cheese until smooth.
Add in the egg, Greek yoghurt, vanilla extract and icing sugar and beat until smooth.
Add in the egg, cream, vanilla extract and icing sugar and beat until smooth.
Add in the crushed Oreos and chopped up Oreo Creme Eggs and stir through
Set aside while you make the cookie dough.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and grease a 9"x9" baking tin with butter or non stick cooking spray.
Beat the butter, brown sugar and sugar together.
Add in the eggs and vanilla extract and beat until smooth.
Add in the flour, baking powder and salt and mix.
Chop up the Oreo Chocolate, Oreo Mini Easter Eggs, crush the Oreos and chop up the Oreo Creme Eggs (leaving 2-4 for garnishing). Chop them different sizes, some in halves some in quarters or smaller, etc.
Finally add the chocolate chips, mini Easter eggs, Oreos and Oreo Creme Eggs and mix together.
Spread half of the cookie dough in an even layer in the base of the prepared pan.
Spread over the cheesecake filling.
Top with the remaining cookie dough in little blobs and top with chopped up Oreo Creme Eggs, either halved or in quarters.
Bake for 20-30 minutes. The top and sides will be golden and set but the middle will wobble.
Place in the fridge until set completely to cut into neat squares or dig in with a spoon straight from the oven!
If you can't get Oreo Creme Eggs you could use all Oreo chocolate or replace with regular Creme Eggs or any other Easter Egg.
You could use all Oreo Easter Eggs instead of Oreo Chocolate or just replace with regular mini Easter Eggs.
You can omit the crushed Oreos from the cookie dough if you wish with no adverse effects to baking time.
