Individual Oreo Turtle Cheesecakes

Do you or do you not want to shove these babies into your mouth for breakfast? Seriously. How can I convince you to come eat the last 6 of these in my fridge right now? My thighs can’t handle any more of these. Yes, I eat them and yes I do my best to work them off but there’s only so much running a girl can do! Yikes.

Totally kicking my own trash at the gym today.

BUT, let me just say that as much as I hate certain workouts, these are the kinds of desserts that make it totally worth it!

Oreo + Cheesecake + Chocolate + Pecans + Caramel = need I say more?

And, the best worst part is you can whip these up in 10 minutes flat! TROUBLE, I tell you! All the oreo cheesecakes I’ve done take about 10 minutes to make and are just as ridiculous too. {Check out my Nutella Topped Red Velvet Oreo Cheesecakes, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Filled Oreo Cheesecakes and these Tye Dyed Oreo Cheesecakes.}

Here’s how you make this kind:

Oreo on the bottom of cupcake liners

Line 10-12 muffin tins with paper liners and oreos. Everything good and holy starts with oreos!

Cream Cheese

Scrape some room temperature cream cheese into a large bowl and beat it up to get it all loosey goosey. Yes, that is a technical term.

Adding sugar

Pour in some sugar and mix that in too.

Adding vanilla

Then you can stir in the vanilla

Adding an egg

and plop in an egg.

Cream cheese mixture

Beat this for 30 seconds or so until a smooth cheesecake batter forms. Make sure to scrape the sides and mix again briefly.

Cheesecake in cupcake liners

Spoon this mixture over the oreos and set aside. I have deeper muffin tins, so I only filled 10. Just be aware!

Chopped nuts

Now for the topping, chop up some pecans and grab some mini chocolate chips too.

Sprinkle the tops with both and pop into a 325 degree oven.

After 15 minutes or so, the cheesecakes should be set and look a little pouffy. After you cool these to room temperature, they should flatten out. Peel the liners off and refrigerate.

Once they are nice and chilled, grab one

and drizzle lots of caramel sauce over like there’s no tomorrow.

Now DIG in! Hello lover. You taste mighty fine.

These were phenomenal. Loved them to pieces and am scared I’m going to eat the rest single handedly. Send help.

Sincerely,

    I’ve been making this recipe since the year you posted it and I don’t think I have ever reviewed it. This is an awesome recipe the only thing I do different is I use the mini premade graham cracker crusts so it only makes about 6. I love this recipe and I made them again tonight and they are amazing. Thank you for sharing.
