Step By Step Instructions
These are the step by step instructions to make and decorate the Oreo cheesecake cupcakes. This recipe uses a stand mixer or a hand mixer (electric mixer).
STEP 1: Use a 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake liners. You NEED muffin liners for this recipe.
STEP 2: Blend the Oreos. At this point blend the Oreos for each step to have them ready. I use a food processor / blender to blend the Oreos to crumbs and pieces.
STEP 3: Next, mix Oreos and melted butter. Mix with a fork. Then, use a 1 tablespoon to scoop the crumbs into the cupcake pan.
STEP 4: Then, compact the crust. I used a ¼ cup to compact the crust.
STEP 5: Beat cream cheese. The cream cheese needs to be beaten on high speed until smooth in a large bowl. Add in the sugar and then beat again.
STEP 6: Add in the wet ingredients. Add in sour cream, heavy whipping cream, and vanilla extract into the cream cheese mixture. Once mixed, add in the egg on low speed.
Make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl with rubber spatula. Then, fold in the Oreo pieces.
Fill the cupcake pan with the cheesecake batter. Use all of the batter.
STEP 7: Bake for 20 minutes. Then, let them cool slightly in the oven before transferring to a cooling rack. Chill overnight.
STEP 8: Top with hot fudge. You can also use a chocolate ganache instead. Use a cold metal bowl and pour in all of the whipped cream ingredients. Whip on high until stiff peaks form. Pipe immediately.
To prevent cracks in the mini Oreo cheesecakes:
Pull the cream cheese out 2 hours before baking.
For best results, make sure to beat the cream cheese and sugar together until very smooth. There should be no lumps.
Once you add in the egg, mix on low. The less air that gets into the egg, the better. Then, use a rubber spatula to gently fold the batter.
After the cheesecakes are done baking, let them sit for 15 minutes in the hot oven. This will allow them to very slowly cool.
No, we really need the fat from the cream cheese to make these rich and delicious.
I haven't recipe tested this. If you use an egg substitute, let me know!
You can definitely use the gluten free Oreos.
You can make the mini cheesecakes 2-3 days before you need them.
