Mini Mint Oreo Cheesecake Cups

So, I haven't mastered the "prettiness" of these things, but they are so rich and delicious and just the right size for popping into my mouth...well, in about 3 or 4 bites.

Mini Mint Oreo Cheesecake Cups

13 mint Oreos, ground in food processor
2 T melted butter

8 oz softened cream cheese
1/2 C sugar
1 egg
2 1/2 T buttermilk
5 mint Oreos coarsely crumbled

1/4 C chocolate chips
2-3 T heavy cream
3-5 mint Oreos, crumbled

Preheat oven to 300. Combine ground cookies and butter in medium bowl. Drop about 1 T of cookie mixture into mini muffin tin that has been sprayed with cooking spray. (If you have mini muffin wrappers, use them. They will look a lot better and come out a lot easier too.) Press crust into cups with back of spoon or fingertips.

Cream together cream cheese and sugar. Add egg and buttermilk until well combined. Stir in crumbled cookies. Pour cheesecake mixture onto prepared crusts. Bake for 25-28 minutes. Let cool for about 15 minutes.

Melt chocolate chips and add cream. Stir until chocolate is smooth and shiny. Spoon over cheesecake. Sprinkle with additional crumbled cookies.

I can't wait to try this recipe with other cookies!

So I tried these when having to take a dessert to the in-laws. They worked like a charm! Thanks Becky.
