Ingredients for Oreo Cheesecake Bites

  • Cream Cheese – The most important ingredient in a cheesecake is the cream cheese! Use softened full-fat, or pre-whipped, cream cheese. 
  • Sugar – Add sweetness to the cheesecake with granulated sugar. 
  • Eggs – This recipe uses two large eggs for a smooth consistency and rich flavor. They also help the cakes set into a firm, sliceable texture.
  • Vanilla – Two teaspoons of vanilla extract add a delicious depth of flavor to the cheesecake.
  • Oreos – The star of the show for these little cheesecakes is the Oreo cookies. They add an extra crunch and distinct Oreo flavor.

How to Make Oreo Cheesecake Bites

This mini Oreo cheesecake recipe is such a great dessert. They are simple to make and store well, which makes them the perfect mini desserts to enjoy whenever your sweet tooth strikes!

Step One – First, combine the ingredients to create the cheesecake batter. Mix softened, or whipped, cream cheese in a large mixing bowl with sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix the creamy cheesecake filling by hand or use an electric mixer to make it easier.

Step Two – Next, use a knife and chop 8 Oreos into small pieces. As an alternative, crush the Oreos in a gallon ziplock bag with a rolling pin. I prefer chopping the cookies to get more cookie chunks and fewer cookie crumbs.

Step Three – Mix the chopped Oreos into the cheesecake mixture using a silicone spatula. 

Step Four – Line a regular cupcake pan with cupcake paper liners. Place a whole Oreo cookie in the bottom of each baking cup.

Step Five – Next, pour the batter into the cupcake liner over the whole cookie. Fill the cupcake liner about 3/4 full.

Step Six – Bake the cheesecakes for 15 minutes at 350 degrees, or until the cheesecakes are set. For the best results, allow the cheesecakes to cool for at least 30 minutes. Then remove the mini cheesecakes from the cupcake liners.

Step Seven – Place the Oreo Cheesecake Bites in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours. These little cupcakes taste best cold. 

Step Eight – Finally, top each mini Oreo cheesecake with whipped cream and Oreo crumbs. Serve the treats cold from the refrigerator.

FAQ’s

Can I Make These Oreo Cheesecake Bites in Advance?

Yes! One of the best things about these little desserts is that you can make them a few days in advance. Top the cupcakes with whipped cream just before serving. The whipped cream will melt if you add it too early.

How Do I Store Cheesecake Bites?

Place the mini cheesecakes in a single layer in an airtight container. Store them in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Can I Freeze These Oreo Cheesecakes?

Yes, these little cakes freeze very well! To avoid them sticking, individually wrap each Oreo cheesecake cupcake in foil or plastic wrap. Then place them in a large food storage bag and store them in the freezer. These cheesecake cupcakes are good for about 2-3 months in the freezer.
Thaw the bites in the refrigerator overnight or at room temperature for no more than 3 hours.

Alternative Topping Ideas

After topping each mini cheesecake with whipped cream, there are a few ideas for toppings. Add Oreo cookie crumbs, chocolate ganache drizzle, or a mini Oreo cookie. You could also use sprinkles, especially if the mini cakes are for a specific holiday or occasion.
