Mini Mint Cheesecakes

This OREO Mint Cheesecake is over the top delicious and a must make for St. Patrick’s Day!      

OREO Mint Cheesecake

This time of year it seems all think “MINT” are popular.
Well here is a fun cheesecake that will go perfectly this St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick's Day mint cheesecake

The crust is made of chocolate cookie crumbs.
Press the crust into the bottom of pan. I used a pan that has a  two part construction, there are discs to push to get the baked item out, you could press the crumbs into cupcake liners and bake them in a cupcake pan also. If you are not able to locate the two part heart pan. Alternatively you could bake this in a sheet pan and cut hearts out with a cookie cutter.

I used a mixture of cream cheese and fat free yogurt to make this recipe. Be sure cream cheese and eggs are at room temperature, they mix better and room temperature eggs help your baked item not to become dry.

This will make them minty and green!

I didn’t over fill the pan, I knew they would rise up and I wanted the shape to remain a heart without it spilling over the top edge.


It ended up being the perfect combination of chocolate and minty goodness.


They really were so pretty.
I even had a fun idea to drizzle hot fudge sauce over the tops before serving, oh so delicious!!!

Mini Mint Cheesecake Printable Recipe
1 cup chocolate cookie crumbs mixed with 4 tablespoons melted butter
Mint Cheesecake
1 package 1/3 less fat cream cheese (room temp)
1/2 cup fat free yogurt ( I use Fage yogurt)
2 eggs (room temp)
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 Tablespoons Creme de Menthe

Preheat oven 325
Place cookie crumb mixture in bottom of pan, press firmly.
Beat cream cheese with yogurt. Add in sugar and flour mix until well blended. Add one egg at a time, beating just until incorporated. Stir in vanilla and Creme de Menthe by hand.
The mini cheesecakes baked for about 20 minutes. They began to crack a bit, but I think it was due to them being individual, they were not dry. The batter made 12 mini cheesecakes and one 4 in cheesecake.

    1. Thanks! Will keep an eye out for something like it! I love the small size. I have the Wilton set, but those are really too big.

  3. I wonder if you could bake these in an 8 x 8 square or 9 x 13 rectangular pan and then just
    use a small heart cookie cutter to cut the shapes out?

  4. This recipe I’m making for my cousin’s birthday, it fits well since it’s also St. Patrick’s day. They test batch I did came out amazing! I wasn’t able to find creme de menthe, so I substituted mint extract, and food coloring, which worked out very well.

  5. The recipe is really cute and plan to make it for my babies minus a leaf for St. Patricks Day. Thanks hun for posting this and other lovely recipes!

    1. I haven’t frozen them, desserts don’t last long here. But I’m sure they would freeze and thaw well, just as any cheesecake.
