There is a time when you want to indulge, however, don’t want to overdo it. There’s also a time when you want to entertain few friends and want to make a simple dessert that doesn’t need to be sliced. That’s when my BABY OREO CHOCOLATE CREAM CHEESECAKES come handy. They are prepared and cooked in few minutes, and they are easy to serve. Oh, did I mention that they taste amazing? Smile.
Approx. Prep and Cook Time: 35 Minutes
Approximate Cost: $6.38 or .64 cents per Baby Cheesecake with ice cream
Difficulty Level: Easy
Allergens, Other: Gluten Free
Servings: 10 small servings
1 8oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese ($1.99)
¼ c. white sugar (.20)
½ c. melted dark chocolate chips (.63)
1 egg (.16)
¼ c. sour cream (.20)
1 tbsp. cocoa powder (.20)
10 Oreo cookies ($1.00)
10 + scoops of ice cream ($2.00)
Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Prep. Your cupcake wrappers & drop 1 Oreo in the bottom.
Melt chocolate chips in the microwave (30 seconds at-a-time)
In a med size bowl, mix the cream cheese and sugar until well blended.
Add the sour cream and cocoa powder and mix until blend. DO NOT OVER MIX.
Use an ice cream scoop to drop I full scoop over the Oreo cookies.
Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes (as always depending on your oven), until they rise and crack in the middle. Remove from oven when done and allow to cool.
To serve, remove the wrappers, place in a nice plate, add a scoop of chocolate ice cream and enjoy!
Note: Traditionally, you bake cheesecakes in Bain-Marie (or Baño de Maria) which is nothing else than to place your cheesecake mold inside a larger mold fill half way with water. Just like you would do to bake a Flan. No Bain-Marie with my recipe. It’s ok to crack, since these babies will have ice cream on top, smile.
