Oreo Cheesecakes with Mini Chocolate Chips
It’s a rainy day here in the northwest. A perfect day to hang out and make some yummy things in the kitchen. Hmmm, what to make, what to make? I only have about a thousand recipes I’ve been wanting to try and I could easily get sucked in to Pinterest for a few hours looking at recipes. What kept coming to mind, were these individual sized Oreo cheesecakes. Yum! I had everything on hand but the Oreos. Off to Safeway I went, and look at this deal I found. Not sure if it was one of those Friday only sales or what, but what a score! The regular size packages of Oreos were on sale for $3.99 (which I think is still too much, regularly $4.79, I don’t think so!).
After looking around at all my options, I discovered these on the top shelf….
So that makes the family size package only $2.50! That’s $1.49 cheaper than the regular size package….but wait, there’s more…look what else I found….
That’s a peelie for $1.00 off of any two packages of Nabisco products. So I grabbed a family size package of Chips Ahoy cookies, too. So in the end, I paid $4.00 for two family size packages of cookies. I love surprise deals like that. It pays to look around!
So anyways, back to the Oreo cheesecakes…here’s what you will need:
2 – 8oz packages of cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 C. sugar
1/2 tsp. real vanilla
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 C. sour cream
pinch of salt
1/3 C. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Put a cupcake liner into each cup of a muffin pan. Place one Oreo into each cup.
With a standing or handheld mixer, beat the cream cheese till smooth. Add the sugar and beat till combined. Beat in the eggs and vanilla, then the sour cream and salt. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Using an ice cream scoop divide the batter evenly into the 24 cups.
Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool completely (if you can wait that long!). YUM!
