Oreo Cheesecake Pudding Cup Recipe

I got this recipe from a co-worker at LavaNet a few years ago (Hi Tim!). It makes a lot of  cups, and has proven to be a crowd-pleaser. Mahalo to Yuka for transcribing the original version from a printed fax to electrons. Enjoy.

Makes 36 cups

Ingredients:

  • 1  box of cook and serve chocolate pudding (5.9 oz box)
  • milk for pudding
  • 1 package of Oreo cookies
  • 2 packages of cream cheese at room temperature (8 oz each)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • chocolate chips (optional)
  • Cool Whip/whipped cream (optional)

Equipment:

  • 3 muffin tins (if you have less than 3, then you will have to bake in batches)
  • 36 paper muffin cups
  • Mixer (hand or stand)
  • Mixing bowl
  • Saucepan

Steps:

  1. Cream together sugar and cream cheese in bowl with mixer.
  2. Add eggs and vanilla extract.
  3. Line muffin tins with muffin cups.
  4. Place 1 Oreo cookie at the bottom of each cup. You can put a whole cookie in each cup, or twist them apart and put half a cookie in each. If you have less than 36 Oreos (but more than 18), splitting the Oreos is a good way avoid buying another package.
  5. Spoon one heaping tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture into each cup on top of the cookie.
  6. Bake at 350° F for about 10-12 minutes, or slightly golden brown.
  7. In the meantime, make the chocolate pudding as directed on package.
  8. Take the muffin tins out of the oven, and let them cool at room temperature.
  9. Also allow the chocolate pudding to cool slightly.
  10. Spoon the chocolate pudding onto each cup.
  11. If using chocolate chips or Cool Whip, add them now. If using whipped cream, add just before serving.
  12. Refrigerate until set.
