Mini Dirty Banana and Oreo No-Bake Cheesecakes

Dear Baking Girl,

I call these the “Mini Dirty Banana and Oreo No-Bake Cheesecakes”

It began with an attempt to do an easy no-bake recipe (http://thecornerkitchenblog.com/healthier-no-bake-cheesecake-bites/), but then I decided to get creative.

The Corner Kitchen recipe is so simple and I loved it, but I didn’t have all the ingredients and wanted to spice up the recipe with some chocolate and banana (mm-mm my favorites).

Here are my ingredients (adapted from the original recipe) and then it will be followed by picture instructions:

Ingredients for 12 mini cheesecakes:

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • Box of Oreos – cookies used as cheesecake bases, crumbs within cheesecake and topping, and center filling as my personal replacement for half-and-half and vanilla extract)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar (can add more to your liking)
  • 1-2 tsp of lime juice (comparative to the amount of sugar added – I added too much lime juice for my first try!)
  • 2-3 squares of milk chocolate or baker’s chocolate

Step-by-step:

Cheesecake filling

  1. Open up 8 oreos and scrape out the cream filling into a bowl.
  2. Take 4 cookie halves and break them into crumbs. (Crumbs do not need to be fine)
  3. Cream together cream cheese, filling, and sugar.
  4. Add in lime juice and continue to mix into smooth.
  5. Stir in oreo crumbs.
  6. Place mixture into a bag (this will be easier to pipe mixture onto bases later) and put into the fridge while preparing cheesecake base.

Oreo Base

  1. Melt 2-3 squares of chocolate in a double boiler (I used a bowl of hot water and placed a cup into the bowl since I do not have a boiler).
  2. Spread thing layers of melted chocolate on oreo halves.
  3. Set aside in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Putting Together the Cheesecake

  1. Pipe cheesecake mixture onto chocolate covered oreos.
  2. Cut small banana slices and insert into the center of each cheesecake.
  3. Drizzle remaining melted chocolate and sprinkle remaining cookie crumbs to your liking.
  4. Place in fridge until you’re ready to eat!
