  • 2 mixing bowls
  • muffin tins
  • Whisker


  • 18 Golden Oreos crushed into fine crumbs, imparting a delightful chocolatey base.
  • 16 oz of softened cream cheese contributing to a rich and velvety texture, ensuring a luscious mouthfeel.
  • 2 large eggs bringing a binding quality to the mix while enhancing the overall moistness of the dessert.
  • 1/2 cup of granulated white sugar providing the perfect level of sweetness to balance the creamy and chocolatey elements.
  • 2 tablespoons of vibrant red white, and blue jimmies sprinkles, adding a festive and visually appealing touch to the dessert.
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract infusing a subtle but distinct aromatic essence, elevating the overall flavor profile of the treat.


  • Crush the Golden Oreos into fine crumbs using either a food processor or a plastic bag and a rolling pin.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the crushed Oreos with melted butter to form the crust. Press this mixture into the bottom of a lined muffin tin and bake for 5 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • While the crust is baking, prepare the filling by beating softened cream cheese until smooth in a separate mixing bowl. Once smooth, add in room temperature eggs, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract, combining thoroughly.
  • Gently fold in the red, white, and blue jimmies into the cream cheese mixture.
  • Pour the filling over the crusts in the muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Once done, let the cheesecakes cool to room temperature before chilling them in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours.
  • When ready to serve, remove the chilled cheesecakes from the muffin tin and top with additional sprinkles if desired.


  • For best results, make sure to use softened cream cheese and room-temperature eggs.
  • You can switch up the sprinkles to match any occasion or holiday.
  • If you do not have a muffin tin, you can also make this recipe in a 9-inch springform pan for one large cheesecake.
  • Have fun and get creative with the toppings! You can add whipped cream, fresh fruit, or even chocolate drizzle on top.
