Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Bites

Time for another Girls Camp Clinic.  I wanted to make the girls something fun and tasty so I chose these beauties because they looked so cute!  This recipe comes from the Pampered Chef cookbook, “Simply Sweet”.

2 squares (1 oz each) semisweet chocolate for baking, chopped

1 (8 oz) package miniature Oreos, divided

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

1  Preheat oven to 325.  Microwave chocolate on high, uncovered, 40 – 50 seconds or until melted, stirring after 40 seconds.  Set aside.  Place paper liners in cups of Mini Muffin Pan or spray with nonstick cooking spray.  Separate 60 cookies into halves.  Place one cookie half, imprinted side down, into bottom of each cup.  Line sides of each cup with four cookie halves, imprinted side against sides of cups.  Chop remaining cookies with Food Chopper, set aside.

2  Mix cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until well blended, add egg and mix well.  Stir in cooled chocolate and 1/4 cup cookie crumbs.  Using Small Scoop, fill each cookie lined cup with a rounded scoop of batter.  Sprinkle batter with remaining cookies.

3  Bake 18 – 20 minutes or until filling is almost set.  Let treats cool in pan 10 minutes then remove to cooling rack to cool completely.  Refrigerate 1 hour or until ready to serve.
