  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake pan with baking cups.
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer or with a handheld mixer, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add sugar and mint extract and beat well. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Crush half the package of Oreos and gently fold them into the cheesecake mixture. I like to also add a little green food coloring.
  • Place a whole oreo cookie in each cupcake cup. Scoop cheesecake mixture over cookies.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Refrigerate at least an hour before serving.
  • After mini cheesecakes have cooled, top with crushed oreo and chocolate hearts(see below).

Chocolate Hearts:

  • Melt 1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips and spoon into a plastic baggie. Cut a small hole in one corner, then pipe out heart shapes onto wax paper. Refrigerate til hardened, then lift off wax paper carefully.
