Mini Chocolate Mint Truffle Cheesecakes

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!  The best part of my day was having my sweet 87 year old grandma here with us.  It was her first time visiting our home, and probably the only time.  I love that my boys got to spend time with her!

I have so many things to be grateful for, but one of those things is definitely this little blog of mine and all of YOU who read it.  Even if it is just a handful of you who come back regularly, those of you who pop in now and again, or even if you’re here visiting for the first time! (Hi! I hope you’ll come back!) But thank you to all of you.

If you’re like me and ate so much pie that the last thing you want to think of right now is more sugar, I’m sorry. But prepare yourself for more sugar, lots of sugar.   I’ll try to sprinkle some healthy stuff somewhere in between too.   It’s time for Christmas goodies, and cookies galore, and more pies:) 

And mini little cheesecakes, so cute you want to eat ten.  

These Mini Chocolate Mint Truffle Cheesecakes are made with Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Kisses filled with Mint Truffle.  One of my favorite holiday flavored Kisses!

Oh yes.  You melt a bunch of those kisses together and stir it into a simple cheesecake filling to make a minty chocolate cheesecake that’s rich and creamy and sinfully delicious.   I love all things minty at Christmastime, don’t you?  cheesecake3

The crust for these little guys is so easy to make.  It’s an Oreo!

Pour the batter over the top and bake until the cheesecake is set.  Top with a drizzle of more melted mint truffle chocolate and a Mint Truffle Kiss.  Perfectly cute and gone in two bites. 

They’re miniature, so have two!

  4. I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving! I am so in love with these cheesecakes. Especially the Oreo crust!

  5. I need to get my hands on the Mint Truffle Kisses! This recipe is perfect Kristy, I love mini cheesecakes! Then I don’t feel guilty when I have more than one!

  6. Would it work to freeze these?

  7. You are right, I DO want to eat 10! Adorable, and so easy! Great job Kristy! :)

  9. OH MY GEEEEE these are utterly perfect!!

  10. Can these be frozen? Look delicious. Thanks!

  11. I found this recipe and just made them for a staff meeting. They are sooooo good. I did start to freak out though…. I was about to put them in the oven when I realized I forgot to put the eggs in!!! I scraped all the cheesecake mix off the Oreos and liners… Added eggs , relined the pan and put them in and they still turned out great! I was worried. I do have to say I had some problems finding these Hersey kisses from the store… Went to four stores, and on the fourth couldn’t find them and right when I was about to give up there they were!!! Awesome desert. My coworkers are going to love them! (:
