What You’ll Need

Regular mini cheesecakes are nice but too easy. Why not make chocolate coffee cheesecakes instead?

For the crust, you’ll need Oreo cookies and melted butter. That’s the easy part. For the cheesecake base, you’ll need cream cheese, whipped cream, vanilla extract and condensed milk.

Finally, there’s the flavoring agents — cocoa powder and espresso powder. These two dark ingredients will elevate the mini cheesecakes massively!
