Nutella Topped Red Velvet Oreo Cheesecakes

I make too many sweets and am addicted to sugar…..hence another Valentine’s Day recipe! I think Valentine’s Day is coming dangerously close to my favorite holiday because it is directly linked in my head to chocolate. So, be warned! Enter with caution.

Remember over Halloween when I made a similar version to these little babies? Well, here is the Valentine’s Day version. Just as simple and quite possibly more delicious. I used the double chocolate oreos for the base and simply added a touch of cocoa powder and red food coloring to the cheesecake batter. Simple enough, right? Then you bake and top with nutella! These are tasty little devils!

And, I was feeling ambitious on the day I made these, so here are a bunch of photos documenting the process! Seriously so easy!

12 Chocolate Oreos
1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
red food coloring
1/2 cup nutella

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Line cupcake pan with paper liners and place 1 oreo in the bottom. Set aside.

In large bowl, whip cream cheese and sugar together until combined. Stir in cocoa, vanilla, egg and red food coloring until smooth and desired color. Spoon batter over oreos so cups are filled 2/3 way full approximately.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until set completely. Cool to room temperature and place in refrigerator until ready to serve.

For serving, remove paper cupcake liner and place on platter. Microwave nutella in heat-proof bowl to thin out and make more spreadable. Spoon over cheesecakes and spread to cover the top completely.

  12. Hi Lauren,

    Amy brought these Oreo desserts to work for a potluck and they were a HUGE hit. I am going to make them sometime as well. I looked up your recipe for meatballs because there is a church potluck this Sat. and I’m going to make them. I haven’t had much time to expore your site but I have a feeling it is going to be a life-saver for me – as someone who, shall we say, is certainly not a creative or inspired cook. Thank you! As cooking is not my forte, your website is especially amazing to me!

  13. Wow! These look so good!! I found these through Red Mango’s Facebook page 😛 Can’t wait to try them!

  14. Just made them yesterday and it’s all gone. Love it. Thanks for recipe!

  15. Hey.
    I absolutely adore adore ADORE your mini oreo cheesecakes.
    But unfortunately for me, I don’t eat eggs and I don’t have an oven.
    I know! My life is just about… ugh.
    Please tell me if you do have any recipe that makes yummy treats without an oven and eggs and is just as yum?

    • Try no-bake cheesecakes or no-bake cookies! Both are delicious!
