Chocolate Mousse Mini Oreo Cheesecakes – mini cheesecakes with thick Oreo cookie crust topped with light and creamy chocolate mousse.
Perhaps you thought : Oh no, here is another in a series of cheesecake recipe!!! But this ain’t just a regular cheesecake. Nope, not at all! Here’s Oreo cookie crust + cheesecake + a huge cloud of mouthwatering chocolate mousse frosting+ an extra Oreo cookie on top. They are mini, they’re decadent, and they’re simply irresistible.
It is usually said that the mini cheesecakes are better than the regular size cake because you have a whole cheesecake for yourself, but this time it won’t be enough. I’m sure won’t be able to stop at just one cupcake.
I have to admit, this delicious combination of cheesecake and chocolate mousse was not my idea.More than a year my mouth waters every time I see the picture of Mini Oreo Cheesecakes with Chocolate Mousse from Yes to Yum on Pinterest. However the site no longer exists so unfortunately I never get the recipe.
I decided to make something like that myself. I start with a regular cheesecake base and let it sit atop simple Oreo cookie crust, the same crust I used so many times. It’s all went smoothly and then it was time to make frosting. I simply love, love, chocolate mousse, but I want it to be creamy, full of flavor and not just a simple chocolate whipped cream which people use to call chocolate mousse. Besides the cream and chocolate in my version it must have a few egg yolks ( in this case it’s three egg yolks,so I don’t have any leftover to throw away because I only use egg whites for the cheesecake). And to make this mousse extra special, I added some crushed Oreos in it.
It turned out better than I imagined. I used to finished my cheesecakes with a thick layer of chocolate ganache, but after making these Chocolate Mousse Mini Oreo Cheesecakes I found a perfect match – cheesecake and chocolate mousse.
