White Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake Cups #chocolateparty
The other day I felt like cheesecake. So I ran to the store took the cream cheese packest out of the box and put them on my dashboard and kept holding them to help them get soft. You must have softened cream cheese for cheesecake and then you have to bake it, let it chill, the whole process is really too long for someone as impatient as me.
These were worth the wait though. I loved the crust, I used Golden Oreos, I think it’s my new favorite crust 🙂
These cheesecake cups are part of the Chocolate Party hosted by Roxanas Home Baking. I joined the party in February and I have loved each month. This month was my “challenge” month since I am not a fan of cherries, but I did like these cheesecakes. :)Be sure to check out Chocolate Cherry Bars and see all of the other bloggers involved in the chocolate party!
White Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake Cups
- 14 Golden Oreo's, crushed
- 2 tbsp butter, melted
- 2 8 oz blocks cream cheese, at room temp.
- 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup white chocolate chips, melted and cooled (melted it is about 1/2 cup)
- 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1 jar cherry pie filling
- 1 cup white chocolate chips, melted
- Preheat oven to 350F and line a muffin pan with liners.
- Use a food processor or a plastic bag and rolling pin to crush the Golden Oreos into crumbs. Put crumbs in a medium bowl, add melted butter, sugar and mix until fully combined. Set aside.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer beat cream cheese for 2 minutes. Add in sugar and mix for 1 more minute. Mix in eggs, vanilla extract, white chocolate and sweetened condensed milk.
- Scoop 1 tbsp of crust mixture into each muffin section of pan, make sure to press down evenly. Pour cheesecake mixture on top of crust into 2/3 full. Bake for 17-20 minutes, until the cheesecakes are not giggling, if the cheesecakes crack they are beginning to over bake. Let cool in pan for 1 hour and transfer to refrigerator to chill. Let cheesecakes chill in fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.
- Scoop 1 tbsp of cherry pie filling on top of each cheesecake.
- Melt white chocolate chips and drizzle on top of cheesecakes. Store in fridge.
