The best thing about these Oreo cheesecake bites is that you don’t need any complicated ingredients to make them. As long as you have a leftover pack of Oreos in your pantry, you might just have all of the other ingredients to whip these up! *Note: exact measurements can be found below in the recipe card.
- Oreo Cookie Crumbs: These will be packed into the cupcake liners to create the crust.
- Melted Butter: Adds rich flavor and helps the crust stick together.
- Sugar: White sugar works fine here! Add some in to sweeten up the crust.
- Salt: Boosts the overall flavor.
- Cream Cheese: Use room temperature cream cheese to make sure everything mixes together smoothly.
- Sour Cream: I love adding sour cream to baked goods because it makes them so moist and tender! Greek yogurt also works as a substitute.
- Sugar: Granulated sugar adds sweetness to the mini cheesecakes.
- Vanilla Extract: Helps to deepen the flavor of the mini Oreo cheesecakes.
- Large Eggs: Act as your binding agent.
- Crushed Oreo Cookies: Pack delicious chocolatey flavor in each bite.
- Whole Oreos: (Optional) For topping! You can also add a dollop of whipped cream. It gives these mini Oreo cheesecakes the best presentation!
How to Make Oreo Cheesecake Bites
Traditional cheesecake can be tricky to make! (It’s so worth it though! I have a great cheesecake recipe here if you’re up for the challenge.) But these mini Oreo cheesecakes are foolproof! No water bath, no fuss, just add your cheesecake mixture to the cupcake liners and bake!
- Preheat Oven, Prep Pan: Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a muffin pan by lining each cup with a cupcake liner.
- Crust Mixture: In a bowl, combine your Oreo crumbs, butter, and sugar and salt. Then mix until well combined and pack the crust evenly into each cupcake liner firmly. Bake for 5 minutes. Then remove from oven and set aside.
- Cheesecake Filling: In a separate bowl, using a hand mixer, beat together the cream cheese and sour cream until smooth and well combined. Add in your sugar, vanilla, and eggs and beat until smooth. Add in your crushed Oreos and mix until just combined.
- Bake: Pour your filling into each prepared cupcake about ¾ full. Bake for 16-20 minutes, until the cheesecakes are set in the middle.
- Chill: Remove from oven and let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes, then refrigerate for at least 3 hours, or overnight.
- Add Toppings: Garnish mini Oreo cheesecakes with an Oreo and enjoy!
Tips for Making the Best Mini Oreo Cheesecakes
These mini Oreo cheesecakes are the BEST! They’ll be a hit wherever they go! These are a few extra tips and tricks to get your mini Oreo cheesecakes tasting absolutely divine. You won’t be able to get enough!
- Remove Oreo Filling: Be sure when you are making the crust and the crushed Oreos for the inside of the cakes, you remove the filling from the Oreos. The filling can alter the texture and keep your mini cheesecakes from turning out properly.
- Allow Time to Chill: This recipe is so simple and quick to make, just be sure you give yourself enough time to allow them to cool completely before enjoying. I recommend making them the night before they are intended to be eaten!
- Swap Out Oreos: You can play around with different flavors by swapping out traditional Oreos for other varieties. I think golden Oreos, lemon Oreos, and peanut butter Oreos would taste amazing in this recipe!
