I love Oreo cookies and I love fudge brownies and chocolate and not to mention vanilla and strawberries, I combined all these ingrediens into a delicious Oreo vanilla & chocolate cheesecake.
It is magical, and so delicious and a beautiful showstopper for any summer-party.

PREPARATION FOR THE BROWNIES BASE;
- Make the Fudge Brownies (see the recipe here) using an 8-inch spring-form pan.
- Line pan with parchment paper and grease the sides.
- The brownies must cool completely before you make the cheesecake.
PREPARATION FOR THE OREO CREAM;
- In bowl add heavy cream, mascarpone, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla bean paste and with a whisk mix for some minutes until just about fluffy.
- Be careful not to overbeat mixture, If, by chance, you have overbeaten the mixture, simply add a few teaspoons of cold heavy cream (straight from the refrigerator) and carefully blend
- Add crushed Oreo cookies and combine, and set aside while you make the chocolate cheesecake.
PREPARATION FOR THE CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE;
- Divide the yolks from the egg whites and set aside.
- Place the chocolate and butter in a medium to large bowl, set over simmering water and stir until smooth, remove from the heat and let cool a few minutes.
- Place the gelatin leaves into a bowl of cold water for 5 minutes.
- Make warm espresso coffee, take the gelatin leaves out of the cold water, squeeze them a bit, and place them into the warm coffee, stirring until dissolved. Set it aside for a minute.
- In a bowl add the melted chocolate and butter mixture, coffee and gelatin mixture, egg yolks, mascarpone, and salt, mix until it is just combined and smooth.
- Wipe a stainless-steel bowl, and the whisk of an electric mixer, with a paper towel moisten with a little lemon juice to eliminate any trace of grease.
- Place the egg whites into the bowl and beat on low speed until soft peaks forms about 1½ minute. Add the sugar a spoonful at a time. Beat on high speed until very stiff peaks form and the meringue is glossy and thick, about 3 minutes. Add the vanilla bean paste and mix for 30 seconds more.
- Take the bowl with the chocolate cheesecake mixture, and carefully combine the meringue into the chocolate mixture with a spatula, until no streaks of the meringue is visible and all you see is just a delicious chocolate cheesecake mixture
- Set aside for a minute.
