Triple Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes


My Triple Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes are the most perfect chocolate dessert treats to impress on Valentine’s Day. Is there a more romantic ingredient than chocolate on Valentine’s Day? The answer to that question is a resounding yes and it is triple chocolate! These decadent little cheesecake bites will definitely win the way to your lover’s heart this year.

I use Oreo cookies to make the chocolate base for these mini cheesecakes. For the cheesecake itself, I start by beating cream cheese in an electric mixer. Then I add sour cream, sugar, eggs, vanilla and cooled melted chocolate. I pour the cheesecake mix onto the oreo bases and bake in the oven. Once the mini cheesecakes have cooled, I drizzle chocolate ganache on top and serve with chocolate shavings. 

To make Triple Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes, you will need the following ingredients:

Ingridiens for Triple Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes

Steps to make Triple Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes


Preheat the oven and prepare a muffin tray


Heat the oven to 325 °F and line a 12 muffin cup tray with silicone/ paper liners.


Make the base


Place 18 oreo cookies in a food processor and pulse until they resemble crumbs. Place the oreo crumbs in a bowl and add 4 tbsp of melted butter. Stir well to combine.


Spoon the base into the muffin cups


Divide the oreo crumb mixture between the muffin cups and press down.


Bake the base


Place the muffin tray in the oven and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.


Make the cheesecake mix


Beat 16 oz of cream cheese in a mixer with the paddle attachment. Add ½ a cup of sour cream, ¼ cup of sugar, 2 eggs and 1 tsp of vanilla to the cream cheese and mix until combined. Add 6 oz of cooled, melted chocolate. Mix to combine and scrape down the sides of the bowl as required.


Add cheesecake mix to the oreo bases


Divide the cheesecake mixture between the cooled bases in the muffin tin. Fill the cups almost to the top.




Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the cheesecakes are set but still wobble slightly. Cool completely in the muffin tray.


Prepare the chocolate ganache


As the cheesecakes cool, prepare the ganache. Place ¾ of a cup of chocolate chips and ¼ cup of heavy cream in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave at 15 second intervals until the chips are fully melted. Allow the ganache to rest for about 2-3 minutes.


Top the cheesecakes with ganache


Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the ganache on top of each cheesecake. Use a knife to smooth the top. Place the cheesecakes in the refrigerator to set.



Serve the triple choc cheesecakes chilled from the refrigerator with chocolate shavings on top.

Better than any average cake you can make from here in my opinion, though the baileys was good too.

Nahla Mastropolo

Didn't liked the way it looked but love the way it tasted, would say 10 for taste 6.5 for appearance I think the mini cherry cheesecakes looked a lot more tasty.

Flora Ollivier

Drizzle some caramel on the top of these bad boys and you have yourself and amazing dessert.

These were alright but honestly the oreos weren't the best idea kinda overpowered everything else and was lacking something.

Very tasty I replace normal sugar with brown sugar instead though.

My husband and I agreed that the pineapple cheescake was a lot more flavorful but this one we'd be making more often for the kids since they love oreos.
