Neapolitan Cheesecake

Not only do we love to spend as much outside as possible, but when I am inside, I don’t always want to be in front of a hot oven.  That’s why this recipe is a great one; it has a really fun and pretty design and it is NO BAKE!  No turning on the oven!  No cranking up the AC to compensate!

And it’s got an Oreo cookie crust.

This basically means that it will be awesome because anything with an Oreo cookie crust is awesome.  It’s like the law or something.

Instructions
  1. Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in 2 cup measuring cup. Add Oreo cookie crumbs and combine. Press crumbs into a 9-inch spring form pan that has been sprayed or buttered. Use a glass or flat object to evenly press crumbs into bottom and sides of pan.

Chocolate Filling
  1. In stand mixer combine room temperature cream cheese and sugar, blend on medium low for about 2 minutes.

  2. While that is mixing, place chocolate chips in microwave safe measuring cup and add in 2 tablespoons butter. Heat for 45 seconds, then remove and stir. If chocolate is not all melted, return to microwave for 10 second increments until fully melted.

  3. Pour chocolate into cream cheese mixture and beat on medium for about 30 seconds. Remove bowl from mixer and fold in whipped cream with spatula.

  4. Once combined, pour chocolate cream cheese into springform pan.
  5. Using spatula, carefully press the chocolate cream cheese down and towards the sides, ensuring it gets into every nook and cranny. You will want a flat, level layer of the chocolate cream cheese.

  6. Place springform pan into freezer.
  7. Clean out mixer bowl.
Strawberry Filling
  1. In stand mixer combine room temperature cream cheese and sugar, blend on medium low for about 2 minutes. With mixer off, add in strawberry extract.

  3. Blend for 30 seconds on medium speed, then remove bowl from mixer.
  4. Using rubber spatula, fold in whipped cream.
  5. Place all strawberry cream cheese mixture into a plastic disposable pastry bag (16 inch works best) and cut off about 2 inches from top of bag.

  6. Remove chocolate cheesecake from freezer.
  7. Starting at the outer edge, pipe out the strawberry cheesecake in circles, moving in. The goal is to create an even and level layer of cheesecake over the chocolate cheesecake. If necessary, go back in with an offset spatula and even out layer.

  8. Place cheesecake in freezer.

    What could have happened, this cake does not want to get hard? I kept it in the freezer, now in the refrigerator. I am not sure that overnight will do miracles. Can you help me?

    • Amanda says:

      Oh no! I am so sorry. I have not run into that specific problem.

  • Tena Letica says:

    Hi, I’m absolutely loving this recipe. Can I make the cake one day ahead of my party? If yes, where should I keep it overnight – in the freezer or fridge? Thank you! ????

  • Hafsa says:

    Hi. I want to make this tomorrow but am slightly confused as to how much cream cheese is needed for each filling. Is it 18 ounce?

    • Megan says:

      One 8 ounce package of cream cheese.

  • Natasha says:

    Hi there….i would love to make this neapolitan cheesecake too as i like to try out all kinds of cheesecakes. But would like to know….did u used UHT diary whipping cream like we normally use to make ganache….or is it the Non -diary whipping cream like the topping cream??,

  • Reanna says:

    I’m going to get my mother to make this for my birthday in three weeks.

  • Brenda says:

    Hi Amanda (i hope you respond and see this!!)

    I’m bringing this to a cake competition tomorrow and i need to know if i should freeze the cake overnight? Or keep it in the fridge?

    I read through all the comments and didn’t find the answer. Thank you!

    I think you forgot to add the vanilla or vanilla bean in the layer. Almond or hazelnut extract would complement the chocolate layer. For the strawberry layer real strawberry sugar syrup could be used.

  • Aivy says:

    • Amanda Rettke says:

  • Roma says:

    If i use vegetable gelatin powder do i need to set cheese cake layers in freezer or normal fridge is fine?

  • christopher says:

    What if this thing was in Sugar Rush extra sweet?

  • Jessica says:

    So easy. I’ve been using this recipe for years. My kids always request for any occasion. I do substitute strawberry flavoring with strawberry nesquick because I could never find the strawberry extract. I also double to crust with 3/4 package of Oreos and a whole stick of butter.

    • Amanda Rettke says:

      Love all these adaptations. I will try them!

  • Dawn says:

    I made this recipe a modified version for keto and my Bible study group loved it!! The changes I made were for the crust I made a Keto almond flour crust. I substituted the sweetener with swerve confectioner and made my own whip cream. For the chocolate chips I used Lily’s sugar free chocolate chips. Will definitely make again cause it was easy. Oh and I didn’t have any piping bags so I just spread the layers on top of each other.
