Ingredients

  • 8 Oreo cookies with filling
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
Cheesecake
  • 2 8-ounce packages cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 ounces bittersweet baking chocolate melted
  • 2 large eggs
Mousse
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 8-ounce container Cool Whip thawed
  • 7 Oreo cookies with filling
  • 20 mini Oreo cookies with filling
Instructions
  1. Place a large rimmed baking sheet onto the bottom rack of the oven. Fill halfway with water
    Preheat the oven to 350° F. and line a cupcake pan with paper liners. Line 8 wells of a second cupcake pan with paper liners as well. 

Crust
  1. Place the Oreo cookies into a food processor and pulse until they become fine crumbs.

  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the butter and the cookie crumbs. Evenly distribute the crumb mixture into the cupcake liners. Press the crumbs down firmly.

Cheesecake
  1. In a mixer, beat the cream cheese until creamy. Scrape down the sides and add the sugar. Beat again until smooth.

  2. Add the sour cream and vanilla and beat again until well incorporated.

  3. Pour in the melted chocolate and mix thoroughly.

  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat well after each addition. Fully incorporate the eggs and be sure to not overbeat the batter.

  5. Evenly distribute the batter over the cookie crusts. Place the cupcake pans on the oven right directly above the tray full of water. 
    Bake for 20 to 22 minutes.

  6. Remove the pan from the oven and place it on a wire rack. Cool the cheesecakes in the pan for 10 minutes.

  7. Gently remove the cheesecakes from the pan and place them on the wire rack. Cool for 1 hour and refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until completely chilled.

Mousse
  1. Beat the cream cheese until creamy. Scrape down the sides and add the sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth.

  2. In a food processor, pulse the 7 regular size Oreos until they are crumbs.

  3. With a rubber spatula, gently fold the Cool Whip into the cream cheese mixture. Then gently stir in the cookie crumbs.

  4. Using a piping bag and a 1M icing tip, swirl the mousse onto the top of the cheesecakes. Top each one with a mini Oreo cookie.
