Ingredients

  • Crust:
  • 20 regular Oreos
  • 1/4 cup salted butter melted
  • 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • Cheesecakes:
  • 16 oz. {2 pkg.} cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 12 mini Twix bars roughly chopped
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Caramel ice cream topping {Or for a homemade version try this Caramel Topping from Mom on Timeout}

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 275ºF.
  2. Grind the Oreos into fine crumbs in a food processor. Add the melted butter and the sugar to the crumbs and mix until crumbs are fully coated.
  3. Place cupcake liners in a cupcake pan and spoon one Tbsp. of crumbs into each liner and press down firmly.
  4. With your electric or stand mixer, whip the cream cheese until smooth, 2-3 minutes. Add the sugar and mix well. Add in the vanilla and eggs and mix until just combined. Add the sour cream and incorporate completely.
  5. With a rubber spatula, fold in the chopped Twix bars until evenly distributed.
  6. Scoop about 2 Tbsp. of filling into each cupcake liner and then bake for 30 minutes. Let cool to room temperature on a cooling rack.
  7. Meanwhile, place chocolate chips in a medium-sized bowl.
  8. In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat and bring to a simmer. {Don't boil!}
  9. Pour the cream over the chocolate chips and let sit for 3 minutes before stirring and then mix until completely smooth.
  10. Drizzle the chocolate and caramel topping over the cheesecakes.
  11. Place cheesecakes in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours before eating.
