Oreo crust, a creamy cheesecake layer, and a fluffy Oreo chocolate mousse topping make this Mini Oreo Cheesecakes with Chocolate Mousse absolutely irresistible!!
Cheesecake is one of my very favorite desserts on the planet, and I don’t make it nearly enough. Maybe because I’m afraid that I’ll have no control and finish off half a cheesecake by myself. 😉
Mini cheesecakes are a perfect solution. The same yummy dessert, but with mandatory portion control. And of course mini foods are just fun to serve, and even more fun to eat!
I adapted one of my favorite chocolate chip cheesecake recipes to come up with these tasty treats. Then I topped them with a rich and creamy chocolate mousse. That just happens to be filled with crushed Oreos.
Oh my goodness. The mousse alone had me in heaven! And it is so easy to make that it’s scary. So yummy!
If you are looking for an easy dessert that will please a crowd, look no further. Everyone will love these little cheesecakes topped with chocolate mousse!
Mini Oreo Cheesecakes with Chocolate Mousse
9 whole Oreos
2 Tbsp melted butter
8 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup whipping cream
1 Tbsp powdered sugar
3 Oreos, finely crushed
1-2 Tbsp milk
For crust: Finely crush Oreos in a food processor. Add the melted butter and mix well. Press into the bottom of 12 paper lined muffin cups.
For filling: Beat cream cheese in a mixing bowl till smooth. Gradually beat in the sweetened condensed milk, then the egg and vanilla. Divide between the 12 crusts. Bake at 350° for 20-20 minutes or till puffed up and starting to crack. (They will sink as they cool.) Remove to cooling racks. Cool completely, then chill for at least 30 minutes.
For mousse: Melt chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave at half power, stirring every 30 seconds. Set aside to cool slightly. In a glass mixing bowl, beat cream till soft peaks form. Quickly beat in the melted chocolate. Fold in the crushed Oreos. Add enough milk to make a spreadable mousse. Using a LARGE tip, pipe the mousse on top of the cheesecakes. (You need a large tip or the Oreos clog it up.) Garnish with additional Oreos if desired.
