Chocolate swirl oreo cheesecakes

March 18, 2018

I get a lot of requests to try and make a decadent recipe more Weight Watcher friendly, and I love a good challenge. One of my Facebook followers asked if I could “drizzle me skinny” these oreo cheesecake cups she found on the internet. I have several lightened up cheesecake recipes so I was confident I could make them and keep them point friendly. The end result was these delicious chocolate swirl oreo cheesecakes and they were a big hit in my house and did not last long at all. They would make a great Easter dessert and at only 4 smart points each you can enjoy one while staying on track. If you have a request feel free to send me an email [email protected] I’ll do my best to make it WW friendly.


Chocolate swirl oreo cheesecakes

Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12
 
4 freestyle SP, 5SP/3PP
Ingredients
  • 6 oz light softened cream cheese
  • ½ cup non fat plain greek yogurt
  • 2.5 Tbsp sugar
  • 1.5 Tbsp flour
  • 1 Tbsp light butter (I use Gay lea)
  • 2 Tbsp milk (I used 1%)
  • 1 egg
  • 12 oreo thin cookies
  • 3 squares (30g) Lindt 70% dark chocolate
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325F, place 12 paper cup liners in a 12 hole regular size muffin tin and place 1 oreo thin on the bottom of each.
  2. In a bowl using an electric mixer beat together your cream cheese, yogurt, sugar, flour, butter, egg and milk until smooth and creamy.
  3. Divide cream cheese mixture into your 12 oreo cups.
  4. Melt chocolate in the microwave, I find 30-second intervals turning after each works best.
  5. Drop a small amount of melted chooclate into the middle of each cheesecake, then use toothpicks to make a swirl effect.
  6. Bake cheesecakes for 25 minutes.
  7. Let cool completely, then chill in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours, the longer you chill them the easier they will come out of the paper liners, mine was actually in the fridge overnight, so this can easily be prepped the night before serving.

      you could use the lemon cookies for these and maybe add some fresh lemon juice and zest to the cheesecake batter and leave out the chocolate

      I just was thinking the same thing but was thinking of swirling raspberries into the cheesecake mixture!

    These were so much better than I was expecting!!! I’ll definitely be using the filling recipe again and tweaking it by using fruit. Love this!!!!

      So glad you enjoyed them Kelly, I think there is lots you can do with the filling 🙂

    I love all of your recipes! I want to make this for Easter and was wondering do you spray the liners with cooking spray like Pam prior to placing the Oreo thin in? I wasn’t sure if it will be soggy if I do that or it is not needed

      Reply Drizzle March 28, 2018 at 2:20 pm

      Hi Donna, no I did not spray them, the key is letting them sit long enough in the fridge, don’t try taking them out too early, mine actually say overnight, it is not necessary but definitely for a few hours is best

    Thanks so much! I can’t wait to try this recipe.

    Can I use non fat milk, that’s all I ever keep in the house

      I think that will be fine 🙂

  • Reply Tina April 12, 2018 at 7:07 am

    I was wondering if you could use Stevia in place of the sugar and also use skim milk instead of 1% milk. That would lower the points more for me.

      Hi Tina, yeah I think you could but I am not sure on the points, you’d need to maybe build the recipe in your WW app

    I have these little gems cooling right now-taking them to a party tonight. That way I ensure I can have dessert. I agree with all the comments; appreciate your creativity with recipes, trying them with lemon and sugar free raspberry jam middles. I love having so many options for my day to day as well as bringing to gatherings. Everyone loves the goodies I bring.

    I made these last night and enjoyed one after refrigerating overnight. It was very good! It satisfies my yen for cheesecake and the Oreo crust is so rich. It felt decadent and I really miss that. I check in often and look forward to trying other things like that carrot cake loaf. Thanks!

    Are we able to use Almond Milk? Or is it best to use regular milk

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle June 22, 2018 at 2:54 pm

      I think almond should work out ok

  • Reply Kathy Jenkins June 29, 2018 at 10:59 am

    Is the chocolate that you use baking chocolate or regular candy bar chocolate?

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle June 29, 2018 at 2:51 pm

      It is regular chocolate, I use Lindt 70% dark
