Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache

The first time I made these delicious Oreo cheesecake cupcakes, I realized it was a bad, bad idea! The thing is that my husband, who by the way has a sweet tooth, went completely crazy about these cute cupcakes. I have to admit that even I’m not indifferent towards this heavenly treats. But to make it every ten days is no pleasure at all!

Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache

A few days ago, after no more than two weeks since the last time I made these cupcakes I heard the hackneyed phrase:  “Vera, when are you planning on making those little, white cupcake goodies?” What was I supposed to do? Nevertheless, in order to avoid turning this activity into a run-of-the-mill job, I decided to spicy it up a bit. If you want to turn something already tasty into something even more delicious, chocolate and Oreo cookies are a perfect choice. So, before baking them, I placed one Oreo cookie at the bottom of each cupcake and added some crushed cookies to the cheesecake base, mixing everything together. Finally, I topped this fantastic delicacy with perfect chocolate ganache.

Can you imagine what the reaction to these little Oreo- cheesecake cupcakes was! “OMG, this is absolutely fantastic!”  In a blink of an eye, a plate with 12 cupcakes was already empty.

So if you are in need of a quick and simple treat for your guests, who are about to arrive, or you just want to sweeten your day, remember- cheesecake and chocolate and Oreo are a perfect combination. But be prepared that you'll be asked  to make them again in no time!

    Should the chocolate chips be semi-sweet or milk chocolate? Thanks!

      Dear Mallory, I use semi-sweet chocolate,because the cupcakes are already sweet enough by them selves, but you could use milk chocolate either if you prefer.
      Have a nice weekend!
      All the best

      Hi Julia,
      I use only egg whites for these cheesecakes cupcakes because I want them to stay white. When you add egg yolks cheesecake might turns out a bit yellow, and I want to keep the white color as a contrast to Oreo. I’ve never try to add beaten eggs in cream cheese filling, so I don’t how it would works.
      Best regards, and thanks for stopping by ;-)
