The One and Only Almond Joy Cheesecake

Almond Joy Cheesecake


Serves: 8

This cheesecake tastes EXACTLY like an Almond Joy
  • 24 whole Oreos
  • 6 tbsp. melted butter
  • 3 8-oz bars cream cheese, softened
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ c. sour cream
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt
  • 1½ c. chocolate chips
  • ¾ c. heavy cream
  • 2 c. sweetened coconut
  • ½ c. slivered almonds
  1. Preheat oven to 325º and spray an 8” or 9" springform pan with cooking spray. Make cheesecake filling: In a large bowl using a hand mixer or in a stand mixer using the paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and brown sugar together. Add eggs, one at a time, then sour cream, flour, vanilla, and salt.
  2. Make crust: In a large Ziploc bag or a food processor fitted with a metal blade, crush or blend Oreos until fine crumbs form. Transfer to a bowl and pour in melted butter. Stir until crumbs are completely coated and moist.
  3. Press Oreo mixture into pan and ⅓ of the way up the sides, packing tightly. Pour cheesecake filling over crust.
  4. Wrap pan in aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake until center of cheesecake only slightly jiggles, about 1 hour 30 minutes. Turn off heat, prop open oven door, and let cheesecake cool in oven, 1 hour, then refrigerate cheesecake until firm, at least 5 hours and up to overnight.
  5. Make ganache topping: In a small skillet over medium heat, heat heavy cream until steaming. Pour over chocolate chips and let sit for 5 minutes. Whisk until smooth then cool slightly.
  6. Pour ganache over the cooled cheesecake and sprinkle coconut and almonds on top. Refrigerate until the ganache is set, another 10 minutes. Slice and serve.
