How to make Instant Pot Oreo Cheesecake
How do you store cheesecake once cooked?
Great question. If you happen to have any leftovers, your cheesecake needs to be stored in the fridge until it's ready to be eaten. Due to the ingredients in the mixture, it needs to remain in a cool place so it doesn't spoil or go bad.
Can you freeze the cheesecake for later?
Yes, you can. And while doing so is simple and easy to do, just know that it might change the texture of the cheesecake once it thaws out to be eaten. The taste and flavor should be the same though, so that's a good thing! Make certain that you're storing it in a freezer-safe container so you don't have to worry about it getting freezer burnt.
What kind of toppings could you put on the top besides Oreos?
If you don't want to add Oreo toppings to the top of the cheesecake, you could always drizzle some hot fudge on top or chocolate syrup instead. Another great cheesecake topping is chocolate chips, too! There are so many different types of chocolate chips out there that you could even add mint ones to go along with your Oreo cheesecake!
