Mini Oreo cheesecakes are so easy to make with this no-bake cheesecake recipe made with that classic American biscuit as a base and crushed throughout. The kids can help you make these, as there’s lots to keep them occupied – weighing, whisking, crushing and of course, eating the results! These are everyone’s favourite chocolate biscuit, and they taste even better in the form of a cheesecake – super indulgent, this recipe will be loved by grown-ups and by kids alike. This recipe serves 12 but if your guests keep going back for more, it may end up serving a smaller group!

Ingredients

  • 2 x 154g packets Oreo cookies
  • 280g full fat cream cheese
  • 284ml double cream
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 drop vanilla extract

Method

  • Ask your child to line a 12 hole muffin tray with paper cases.

  • Count out 12 Oreo cookies to use as the base of your cheesecakes. Your little helper can have the task of placing a cookie into the base of each paper case.

  • Count out 6 more Oreo cookies and place to one side, as they will be used later for decoration.

  • For the creamy cheesecake topping, pour the double cream into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Whisk the cream with an electric whisk or a balloon whisk until the cream starts to thicken up. To test if it’s ready, lift the whisk above the bowl; the cream that drips off should leave a trail on the rest. This is the perfect consistency!

  • Add the cream cheese, lemon juice, caster sugar and drop of vanilla extract to the cream. Whisk all the ingredients together until the mixture is smooth and well combined.

  • You should be left with approximately 7 Oreo cookies, which will be added to the cheesecake topping. Place the Oreos into a freezer bag or sandwich bag and seal shut, making sure that all the air is out of the bag. Your child can then crush the Oreos with a rolling pin, until they turn into crumbs.

  • Tip the Oreo crumbs into the cheesecake mixture and stir to combine.

  • Ask your little helper to spoon the cheesecake mixture into the paper cases, covering up the Oreo bases.

  • Place the cheesecakes into the fridge for 2-3 hours to firm up.

  • When ready to serve, decorate your cheesecakes by breaking the 6 remaining Oreo cookies in half and pushing a half into each cheesecake.
