After the success of our Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes, we decided to make a St Patrick’s Day version. These treats are ideal for anyone who’s a mint lover or whose favorite color is green! Plus, this recipe is fun to make with kids too.
We used mint creme oreos and added non-alcoholic creme de menthe syrup to flavor the cheesecake. If you can’t find mint oreos, Annie’s and Newman’s Own also make a similar product. Failing all that, regular oreos will work just fine too.
HOW TO MAKE MINT OREO CHEESECAKE CUPCAKES
To make them, you’ll need to start by lining a 12-cup muffin tin with white paper cupcakes cups. Then you can place a cookie into each cup.
After that make the cheesecake filling in a mixing bowl using a hand mixer. You’ll need:
- Cream cheese
- Creme de menthe syrup: I recommend Torani which is available online
Once it’s ready, spoon the mixture on top of the cookies to about 3/4 full. Now you’re ready to bake at 350°F (177°C) for about 20 minutes.
And that’s it. You bake for them for 20 minutes and then let them cool before garnishing with optional whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
