  • 4 oz semisweet chocolate (110 g)

Instructions

The Base

  • Blend Oreo cookies in a food processor until you get a fine mixture. Skip this step if you’re using already made crumbs. Pour into a bowl together with butter and mix well.
  • Line a 12 hole muffin pan and distribute the mixture evenly into every hole. Using the back of a small spoon, press the mixture evenly. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes.

The Chocolate Cheese Filling

  • Chop chocolate and melt in microwave. You can also use double boiler method. Set aside and leave until it has cool slightly before using.
  • Add cream cheese into a bowl and using a handheld mixer, whisk on lowest speed just until it gets creamy. Now add in sugar, sour cream, vanilla and salt. Mix everything well.
  • Now add in the melted chocolate and mix everything together. Set aside.
  • Crack both eggs into another bowl and lightly whisk them. Add the eggs into cheese mixture and fold everything together with a spatula. Divide the batter evenly into the muffin pan.
  • Bake in a preheated oven (no fan) at 285ºF (140ºC) for 25 minutes or until when you gently shake the pan, the surrounding of the cheesecakes has set and the center wiggles.
  • Remove from the oven and cool completely before placing the pan in the fridge for min 8 hours.

Assembling

  • Remove the cheesecake from the pan (use a knife or offset spatula to help lift them out). Peel the liners and place the cheesecakes on a serving plate. Drizzle some melted chocolate on top and sprinkle some chocolate shavings. Enjoy!
