It may be my background, it may be my culture, but when I first stumbled upon a slutty brownie recipe, I raised my eyebrow and few thoughts came to my mind. Why that particular name? What was so mind blowing about the brownies that they have to be called slutty?

Turns out it was the mixture of chocolate chip cookie dough, Oreo cookies and fudge brownies that make them absolutely irresistible.

I still wasn’t sold on the name until I actually made these Cheesecake Bars based on that original recipe. Cheesecake makes my heart skip a beat and the idea of adding Oreo cookies to a creamy cheesecake layer definitely deserves my full attention.

Be warned, Oreo cookies don’t stay crunchy when baked in the cheesecake layer. They absorb some moisture from the cheesecake. However, the ones crumbled on top stay slightly on the crunchy side. These bars are a great a mixture of different textures and delicious berry flavors.
