  • 15 Oreos, finely crushed
  • 3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, melted


  • 14oz Cream Cheese, softened
  • 150 grams Granulated Sugar
  • 70 grams Sour Cream/ Greek Yogurt
  • 2.5oz Heavy Cream
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 5 Oreos, crushed but not completely

Chocolate Ganache

  • 4oz Dark Chocolate Finely Chopped
  • 2oz Heavy Cream

Whipped Cream

  • 4.2 ounces (1/2 Cup) Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Dry Milk Powder
  • 4 Oreos, crushed



  1. Line a mini muffin pan or muffin pan with liners, set aside. Preheat oven to 325F. In a food processor, crush the Oreos till they become a fine crumb. Add melted butter, stirring until fully combined. Press 1 Teaspoon in mini muffin liners or 1 Tablespoon in muffin liners, pressing down completely. Place in fridge while you make the cheesecake.


  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment beat cream cheese for 3 minutes on medium to high speed. Add granulated sugar and beat for another 3 minutes. Add in heavy cream, sour cream, vanilla extract, vanilla bean caviar mixing until fully combined. Add in eggs one at a time. You should have a creamy batter with no lumps. Gently fold in crushed Oreos. Pour into prepared liners. Bang the pan on the counter top to get rid of any air bubbles.
  2. Bake the cupcake size cheesecakes for 19-21 minutes and the mini muffins size cheesecakes for 12-15 minutes, the cheesecakes should be set and not jiggle much. Let cool on wire rack for 30 minutes then wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 4 hours or overnight.

Chocolate Ganche

  1. In a medium bowl add chopped chocolate and set aside. In a small saucepan add cream and cook until just boiled. Pour directly over chocolate, let sit for 3 minutes. Then using a whisk, mix the chocolate and cream until a silky texture. Pour over chilled cheesecake then put back in fridge to set.

Whipped Cream

  1. When ready to serve Cheesecake, take your bowl and whisk attachment to the mixer chill it in the freezer for 5 minutes. When ready whisk heavy cream for 1 minute, add a splash of vanilla and milk powder. Whisk until stiff peaks form. Using a pastry bag and any tip you like pipe the whipped cream around the edges of the cake, I like to pipe mine pretty high. Then crumble crushed Oreos on top. Store in fridge.
