Day 343/365: Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes

The other night I made Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes to take to work.  (You can search online to find any variations of recipes; I used the one from Tasty.)

Cream cheese, sour cream, eggs, vanilla, and sugar whipped together to make cheesecake. Yum.

Place an Oreo on the bottom of each cupcake liner and dollop the cheesecake mixture on top of that. I used mint Oreos for the holiday season.

I made the mistake of doubling the recipe when I only had one muffin tin.  This meant that I had to wait a half hour for the first batch to cool before I could remove the cheesecake cupcakes and prep the second dozen.  It took 45 minutes for each batch to bake.  By the time the second batch was cool enough to refrigerate, it was almost midnight.

I wanted to sprinkle crushed peppermint candies and chocolate chips on the tops, but I didn’t have any mints.

I didn’t get around to taking any After photos, and there were no leftovers to bring back home.  So you will just have to imagine how they looked and tasted, or you can make a batch and see for yourself.  I highly recommend it.
