Why Mini Oreo Cheesecakes Work

Calling all Oreo lovers!

This easy recipe brings together the best of both no bake cheesecake and Oreo cookies. I’m a sucker for both..what can I say? Here are more reasons why this recipe works so well.

  • No complicated baking is required. Just mix, refrigerate, and enjoy. It’s stress-free
  • With the single-serving size, it’s easy to indulge with portion control. 
  • Individual servings are perfect for gatherings. Bring them to your next barbecue or party for a dessert that’s guaranteed to be a hit. 
  • They’re freezer-friendly, so you can make a big batch and store them as a last-minute emergency dessert stash. 
  • Preparation time is only 20 minutes, so you can relax, call it a night, or go do other things as they chill in the refrigerator.

Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed to make mini oreo cheesecakes.
  • Oreo Cookies – We’ll process these into crumbs to make a tasty Oreo crust
  • Unsalted Butter – It’s essential to add moisture and richness to the crust. 
  • Cream Cheese – Creates the tangy base for these cheesecakes. Be sure to use blocks of cream cheese, not the type that comes in a tub.
  • Plain Greek Yogurt – Adds extra creaminess, flavor, and a lighter texture with a little less fat.
  • Sugar – Adds sweetness.
  • Vanilla Extract – Adds aromatic flavor. Choose a pure vanilla extract, or try our homemade vanilla extract for best flavor.
  • Cool Whip – Lightens up the cheesecake texture and calorie count. Make sure it is fully thawed before using it in this recipe. Use our homemade stabilized whipped cream if your prefer that over store bought.
  • Whipped Cream – This topping is optional but makes a tasty presentation. Our homemade whipped cream is perfect.
  • Chocolate syrup – Drizzle this over the whipped cream as an optional finish. Try our easy chocolate syrup recipe!

Easy Instructions

  1. Make the cookie crusts. Pulse the Oreos in a food processor to fine crumbs. Stream in the melted butter until blended. Add 2 Tablespoons of crumbs to each cupcake liner, and press it in firmly to make the crusts.

PRO TIP: Some people love just putting a WHOLE unprocessed oreo cookie in the bottom, instead of crumbs. This works great too!

  1. Make the cheesecake filling. Beat the cream cheese, yogurt, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl until smooth. Fold in the Cool Whip until thoroughly combined, then fold in the crushed Oreos. 
  2. Fill and chill. Fill each cupcake liner to the top using a cookie scoop or spoon. Smooth the tops, then refrigerate the cheesecakes for 6+ hours. 
  3. Serve. If desired, serve the cheesecakes with piped whipped cream and chocolate syrup on top.

Tips and Tricks

  • Soften the cream cheese to room temperature beforehand. This makes it easier to blend and achieve a silky-smooth consistency. Use our guide on how to soften butter for best tips and tricks.
  • Beat the cream cheese mixture thoroughly so no lumps remain. This will ensure a super creamy texture. 
  • To ensure the crusts don’t fall apart after baking, press the crust mixture firmly into the cupcake liners before filling them.
  • Use a piping bag with a big star tip for the whipped cream for a professional touch. 
  • Feel free to get creative and add additional toppings to each cheesecake. Some options include whole Oreos, maraschino cherries, strawberries, and chocolate shavings. 
  • Change the flavor using flavored Oreos such as java chip, peanut butter, or caramel coconut.
  • Skip the oreo cookies and make a batch of our easy no bake mini cheesecakes and top with berries instead!

Recipe FAQs

Can I use sour cream instead of yogurt?

Yes, feel free to substitute the Greek yogurt with sour cream if that’s what you have on hand. For maximum flavor, it’s best to use full-fat sour cream if you plan to do this. 

What’s the best way to store these cheesecakes?

Store Mini Oreo Cheesecakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Wait until you’re ready to serve them to add the whipped cream and chocolate syrup. 

Can you freeze Oreo Cheesecakes? 

Yes. To freeze these cheesecakes, store them in a freezer-safe, airtight container for up to 3 months. To thaw them, let them sit overnight in the refrigerator.
