Here Is What To Do For The Crust:
Preheat oven to 325. In a food processor, add 3/4 of a package of Mint Oreo cookies and sugar. Pulse until crumbs are fine. Melt butter in microwave. Add cookie mixture to butter and mix well.
Spray springform pan with vegetable spray and line bottom with parchment paper. Press crust mixture into bottom and up the sides of the pan. Bake for 10 minutes and remove.
Here Is What To Do For The Filling:
Reduce oven to 300. In microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate on medium heat until melted. In a stand mixer or using a hand mixer, add cream cheese, sour cream, heavy whipping cream, vanilla, mint extract, and sugar and blend on low until fluffy.
Add in your flour cocoa powder until fully incorporated. Add in the eggs in one at a time until just barely beaten.
Now For The Pan:
Pour half of the cheesecake filling into springform pan. Sprinkle the chopped Oreos and pour remaining filling over cookies. Smooth with spatula.
Place Easy Bath Cheesecake Wrap into the roasting pan. Place springform pan into the wrap and fill the roasting pan with tap water to the fill line on the silicone wrap.
Now For The Baking:
Bake at 300 for one hour. Turn off oven and open door about 6” and leave for one hour. Remove from oven and pan from water bath. Place on counter for one hour and then in refrigerator overnight.
The next morning, carefully open springform pan and remove the bottom. Carefully peel the parchment paper from around the cheesecake. As you peel the parchment paper from the bottom of the cheesecake, set it onto a plate.
Now For The Serving And Eating:
Cover the cheesecake and keep refrigerated until ready to serve. When you are ready to serve, cut with a knife that has been run under hot water and wiped dry. This makes it easier to get a clean cut.
