  • 1 cup Oreo baking crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 16 ounces full fat cream cheese at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup full fat sour cream at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 eggs at room temperature


  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, combine the Oreo crumbs and melted butter until the crumbs are moistened.
  • Add a heaping tablespoon of the crumb mixture into the bottom of each paper liner and press down to pack the crumbs together to form a crust.
  • Add the room temperature cream cheese to a large bowl and mix with a hand mixer on medium-high speed until creamy and smooth.
  • Add the sugar and mix well for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the sour cream and vanilla, and mix well on low speed until well blended.
  • Add the eggs one at a time and mix well after each addition, scraping down the bowl to make sure everything is incorporated.
  • Divide the cream cheese mixture evenly between the 12 prepared cups and pour it in over the crusts.
  • Add the chocolate (chopped) to a microwave-safe bowl along with the cream. Microwave on 50% power for 30-second intervals until the chocolate is melted.
  • Add a small dollop of melted chocolate on top of each of the cheesecakes and swirl the chocolate into the cheesecake mixture with a knife or a bamboo skewer.
  • Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for about 25-30 minutes or until the edges of the cheesecakes are set and the middles have a slight jiggle.
  • Let the cheesecakes cool at room temperature until cooled, and then chill them for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  • Serve with some fresh berries and whipped cream (optional), or some additional shaved chocolate.
