Delicious Instant Pot Oreo Cheesecake. An Oreo cookie crumble crust, creamy cream cheese filling with Oreo cookie bites and topped with chocolate ganache. It is the perfect chocolatey dessert to satisfy any sweet tooth.
Something you should know about me is, I am obsessed with chocolate but I am also very particular with my chocolate.
While I love chocolate, I think there has to be a good ratio of rich chocolate to creamy goodness and that is why I love everything about this Oreo Cheesecake that you can make in your Instant Pot.
The combination of the cream cheese filling and Oreo cookie with the chocolate ganache just make you want to escape to a private island so you can indulge in every bite in peace.
The bad news is, this probably won’t last very long in your house.
Making Instant Pot Cheesecake
If there is one tip I can give you about making Instant Pot Cheesecake it is that you NEVER and I mean NEVER want to make cheesecake in your Instant Pot after you’ve cooked something in it without cleaning the rings.
So, you will need to either do a deep cleaning of your Instant Pot before making your cheesecake or just purchase new sealing rings.
The sealing rings help the Instant Pot have that nice tight seal but they also are major magnets for odor.
They trap odors like nobody’s business so you need to remove them, soak them and clean them regularly or you get flavors/scents stuck into the next recipe you make.
Personally, I like these Instant Pot Sealing Rings because I can color code them based on how I use them. I use the black for meat, mint for desserts and clear for everything else (like veggies and stuff). It really makes a difference.

Repeat these last 2 steps as necessary until the chips are melted and incorporated. (If the mixture is too thin add move chips, If the mixture is too thick add more cream. If added stir until all ingredients are blended.)
