Here is another mini cheesecake recipe for you! The last ones I made were these scrumptious chocolate Easter cheesecakes decorated with Mini Eggs. I used the same base cheesecake recipe to make this chocolate orange version, and topped them with a deliciously creamy dark chocolate orange ganache. Perfection. I just love the chocolate and orange combination!

This is such a quick and easy recipe to throw together, the only hard part is waiting for them to chill before topping them with the chocolate ganache. The chilling time is at least 4 hours, but you can also leave them overnight if preferred. I left mine overnight, then I topped them with the ganache.

The dark chocolate orange ganache is incredibly creamy, rich, and full of flavour. It’s the perfect topping for these mini chocolate cheesecakes, and it sets beautifully at room temperature or chilled.

Ingredients

    For the Crust
  • 12 Oreos
  • 1/4 cup (56g) unsalted butter, melted
  • For the Cheesecake
  • 2 cups (450g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup (112g) caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup (25g) cocoa powder
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • For the Ganache
  • 1 cup (175g) dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (115ml) heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice

Instructions

    For the Crust
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with muffin cases, and set aside.
  2. Using a food processor, pulse the Oreos into fine crumbs. Add the melted butter, and mix until all the crumbs are moist. Press the mixture into the prepared muffin cases. Bake for 8 minutes, then allow to cool whilst preparing the cheesecake.
  3. For the Cheesecake
  4. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese and sugar until combined. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then mix in the cocoa powder, zest and orange juice.
  5. Divide the mixture between the prepared muffin cases, and bake for 20 - 22 minutes, or until the cheesecakes are just set. Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  6. For the Ganache
  7. Place the dark chocolate in a heat proof bowl, and set aside.
  8. Microwave the heavy cream until hot, but not boiling. Pour over the chocolate and leave for 5 minutes, then whisk together until smooth. Whisk in the orange juice. Allow to cool for another 5 minutes.
  9. Pour the ganache over the tops of the cheesecakes, chill until firm, or serve straight away.
  10. Store the cheesecakes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

    The hardest part about cheesecake is always waiting for it to chill! I find for a full size cheesecake it really is best to let it sit overnight and really firm up. But, even with this struggle, cheesecake is totally worth it. Yummy!

    Marsha, these little cheesecakes look so wonderful. But, first of all: are you feeling better? I hope you are. 🙂 I’m so appreciative that you pushed yourself to get this recipe out even though you were under the weather. Let me tell you, the effort was worth it. 🙂 I shared this recipe to my FB page and so many people told me how glossy and delicious these looked. Woot woot! Pinned, of course! Have a great weekend. xoxo

    Ooops! Not sure how that got submitted before I was finished with my reply (crazy laptop). I wanted to tell you how scrumptious (and cute) these cheesecakes look. I adore the Oreo crust and bet that orange ganache is a lovely complement to the chocolatey cheesecake.
