Mini Oreo Cheesecakes

The idea of these mini Oreo cheesecakes came to me several years ago when reading a recipe that called for a vanilla wafer as the base of the cheesecakes.  I thought, ‘Wow, I bet an OREO would be awesome in a recipe like this’.  And so this recipe was born.  No lie – I have actually had neighbors (plural, as in from different households) show up at my front door – tin foil in hand – waiting for me to load them up on these delicious treats.

This is all that you need:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together the eggs, sugar, cream cheese, & vanilla extract using an electric mixer.

Lightly grease a muffin pan.  Put one oreo in each one of the 12 cups.  Fill to the top with the cream cheese mixture.

Bake for about 20 minutes.  Set on a wire cooling rack until cooled completely.

Now, you can just be done here, and they are wonderful!  Or, you can take a step further & add some chocolate to it.  Now, I am a chocla-holic, so this step is mandatory for me.

In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips by cooking on 15 second intervels, stirring each time, until completely melted.

Dip the bottoms of the mini cheesecakes into the chocolate, & using a small spoon, cover the tops of them with chocolate too.  Don’t worry if they aren’t perfectly covered…gives it character!  Carefully place them on a baking sheet covered with wax paper – or use a silicone baking board as I do.

To make for a prettier presentation, you can also just dip the bottoms of them into the melted chocolate, & after removing – drizzle more on the tops for that ‘ooh la la’ effect.

I really prefer the ‘covered with oodles of chocolate approach’ regardless of the presentation.
