As you may have noticed I love trying all the different kinds of Oreos they come out with. I stand by my belief that peanut butter Oreos were the best flavor ever. As such when I spotted the Reese’s peanut butter cup ones they jumped into my shopping basket. Their filling is half chocolate/half peanut butter giving them the flavor of a peanut butter cup sandwiched between chocolate Oreo cookies.
When I decided to chop them up and mix them into cheesecake I thought about making the cheesecake peanut butter flavored, but instead let the Oreos shine through on their own (not that I would’ve argued with more peanut butter). With Oreos as the crust, pieces in the cheesecake, and a peanut butter-chocolate ganache there’s nothing missing.
- 12 whole Reese's peanut butter cup creme Oreos
- 8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt or sour cream (I used 0% vanilla Chobani)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 Reese's peanut butter cup creme Oreos, chopped
- 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
- 2 Tbsp heavy cream
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place one Oreo into 12 mini cheesecake cups* that have been sprayed with cooking spray. Set aside.
- In a stand or electric mixer beat the cream cheese, Greek yogurt, and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Fold in the chopped Oreos.
- Pour mixture evenly into the 12 cups, filling about 3/4 way full (may have extra filling). Bake for 25-28 minutes or until cheesecake is cooked through. Let cool completely.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl add the chocolate, peanut butter and heavy cream. Microwave on 50% power for 1 minute, stirring every 15 seconds until melted.
- Once cooled, remove cheesecakes from pan and top each with a spoonful of chocolate ganache. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
*Can also use regular muffin pan with cupcake liners. Yield and cook time may differ.
