Oreos cookies and cream mini cheesecake

Remember this peanut butter oreo cupcakes with oreo and peanut butter frosting that I made awhile ago? It was such a big hit amongst the readers and also at the fund raiser for RSPCA. That was awhile ago and I wanted to do something with oreos again. So I went for Oreos and cream cheese combination. I still don’t understand why the oreos bought in Australia isn’t as good as the ones in the US. Can anyone explain why? I can’t wait to get to US/Canada and get my worth of oreos back to Australia! If you are in SF/Vancouver/Toronto/NYC, please leave a comment or email me if you like to catch up. Shall correspond details.

These mini Oreos cookies and cream mini cheesecake can be eaten in 2 to 3 bites. It keeps really well in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Just make sure that it is covered! I love the speckles of Oreo bits :)

Mister and I could not stop at one. We were going to give most of it away but ended up eating them all ourselves! Chin chin to our ever expanding waist line but happy laugh lines on our faces :)
