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 firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll do my best to make it WW friendly.
Chocolate swirl oreo cheesecakes
4-5PP, 4SP blue & purple, 5SP green
- 6 oz light softened cream cheese
- 1/2 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
- 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.
- In a bowl using an electric mixer beat together your cream cheese, yogurt, sugar, flour, butter, egg and milk until smooth and creamy.
- Divide cream cheese mixture into your 12 oreo cups.
- Melt chocolate in the microwave, I find 30-second intervals turning after each works best.
- Drop a small amount of melted chooclate into the middle of each cheesecake, then use toothpicks to make a swirl effect.
- Bake cheesecakes for 25 minutes.
- 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.

Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was!
Made these today and they are so lovely. Thank you for all you do my journey is easy because of you 🙂
You are very welcome, so glad you enjoyed the cheesecakes 🙂
You are so creative with the recipes ??❤️ I am obsessed with your blog! Thank you so much for creating and sharing!
Thank you so much Gail 🙂 I am so glad you are enjoying the recipes
Thanks! This looks so good!
Do you think these could be made without the cookie? What changes would you make in that case?
Thanks again! Love your recipes!
Hi Sara, the cookie provides a base for them so to speak, I’m not sure how they’d hold up without them
These look amazing…What can we make with the Thin Lemon? They are my favorite!!!
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!
Yum, sounds delicious!
Thx, they turned out great
Glad you enjoyed them 🙂
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
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.
Just saw this new to your blog. You got my attention with chocolate/cheesecake. Who can resist. Between you and Skinny Kitchen I can’t keep up! Hope to make these very soon. Thanks to all you do for us.
Hi Diane, happy you found me and I hope you enjoy all the recipes 🙂
Can I use non fat milk, that’s all I ever keep in the house
I think that will be fine 🙂
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
How much yoghurt is half s cup sorry if this sounds stupid just unsure what size cup to use.
Sorry little confused by your question, maybe you live overseas? We use cup measurements here in Canada & U.S and we have a half cup , it is 125ml
Just wanted to let you know that you are positively saving our lives on this WW journey with your sweet treat recipes! My husband is so grateful. Thank you so much for all you do!! We love your recipes!!
Hi Rhonda, aww that just made my day 🙂 I get the sweet tooth believe me!! So glad you are both enjoying the recipes 🙂
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 hope everyone enjoyed them and you enjoyed the party 🙂
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!
Thanks Barb, so glad you enjoyed them 🙂
Hi these look awesome! I wondered though how many per serving? Please say more then 1!! Lol thanks!
Hi Nikki, the points are listed on the post, they are 4 SP each
OMG these were incredible. I can’t stop thinking about them. They were soooo easy! Thank you for making Weight Watchers so much easier!
Hi Shelby, yay so glad you enjoyed them, thanks for your kind words 🙂
Are we able to use Almond Milk? Or is it best to use regular milk
I think almond should work out ok
Is the chocolate that you use baking chocolate or regular candy bar chocolate?
It is regular chocolate, I use Lindt 70% dark
I made these and they taste good but the bottom is a little wet, what did I do wrong?
Hi Pauline, hmmm I’m not too sure, it is so hard for me to know what when I am not there.. The bottom cookie part might go soggy after a day or two but they shouldn’t be right after making them
I did have them sit over night
Yes, they will get soggy a bit unfortunately.. best served the day you make them
These look so good! Wondering if they would freeze well or do you think they would get soggy when defrosted? Thanks for all your great recipes!
Hi Danielle, you are very welcome.. They might get a bit soggy, but I would think they will be ok to freeze
Made these tonight. Couldn’t wait for them to really cool but it was still tasty. I’m sure they will be even better tomorrow. I like that there aren’t really any diet ingredients so my family will help me eat them!
I am glad you enjoyed them and hope everyone else does 🙂
Tried this recipe today. So easy and they were absolutely delicious! If i use stevia I stead of sugar does it reduce the points?
Hi Dana, so glad you enjoyed them, yes stevia would definitely reduce points, best to build the recipe in the WW app to get the accurate point count
Hi, what can be substituted for the greek yogurt?
These are fantastic! I made them yesterday exactly the way you wrote it. I made them again today (yes, they were so good, our family devoured them in 24 hours!) with one substitution. I used vanilla-flavored Light & Fit nonfat Greek yogurt instead of the plain yogurt. It made them a little creamier and slightly sweeter, with less calories!
I am so grateful to you for this website. You’ve made our weight loss journey so much easier and tastier!
Hi Jenny, Yay, I am so glad everyone enjoyed them 🙂 I love the idea of changing up the yogurt flavor… Thank you for your kind words 🙂
I absolutely LOVE these little cheesecakes! They are delightfully creamy with a bit of crunch from the cookie. I can indulge in my love of cheesecake and control the portion size. Thank you so much for all of your great recipes!
Hi Arlene, I am so glad you enjoyed the cheesecakes, they are one of my favorites as well, and you are very welcome, I hope you continue to enjoy the recipes
