With an Oreo crust, creamy cheesecake filling and a light and fluffy whipped topping, these Oreo Mini Cheesecakes are simply incredible!Jump to Recipe
Wanna know what I love about these mini cheesecakes? Well I could talk about these for days, but I’ll keep it short and to the point!
- Easy to serve. I love that these are easy to serve at a potluck or get-together. No knives or serving spatulas needed!
- They’re so pretty! Just look at these. With that chocolate drizzle and Oreo on top, they’re almost too pretty to eat!
- Portion control. Just one of these will conquer your sweet tooth and having them in little muffin liners makes for easy portion control.
- OREOS. If you’ve been around here for awhile, you know I LOVE Oreos. So having an Oreo crust, some in the cheesecake and one on top is music to my ears!
- Oreo Cookies – I used regular Oreos. Feel free to get fancy and try different Oreo flavors! (Wouldn’t the Chocolate Peanut Butter Oreos be SO good?!)
- Cream Cheese – I recommend using full fat cream cheese for the creamiest texture
- Sour Cream – Again, I recommend using full fat rather than a “light” sour cream
- Eggs – I used “large” eggs
- Whipped Topping – I used Cool Whip (If you use homemade whipped topping, you’ll want to stabilize it if you’re aren’t going to enjoy the cheesecakes right away)
- Chocolate Chips – Milk chocolate, semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips will all work!
- Vegetable Oil
How to make Oreo Mini Cheesecakes
Cheesecake can be a little intimidating. For a beginning baker, it can be difficult to know when the cheesecake is done and then of course there’s always the possibility of big cracks in a large cheesecake when it cools. Well, you don’t have to worry about that with these little minis (we’ll cover any cracks anyway!!).
The “crust” is as easy as it gets. Simply place one half of an Oreo into the bottom of a muffin liner. Then, you’ll make the filling and scoop it into the liners and bake.
Once the cheesecakes come out of the oven, you’ll let them cool. Now for the fun part! Either pipe or scoop a big dollop of whipped topping (homemade or store-bought) over each of the cupcakes. Drizzle with a melted chocolate and top with an Oreo piece! Just look at these little cheesecakes…..mmmmm!!!
