Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes.

Today’s post is very special, so I hope you listen up. There are two parts:

(1) Hunger.
(2) The recipe.

With thanksgiving around the corner, let’s start with hunger.

Mini chocolate chip cheesecakes with an Oreo cookie crust and homemade salted caramel.


1. Hunger.

Today a few bloggers and I got together and brought a Thanksgiving dish/dessert to the table. A Thanksgiving potluck. Our purpose? Feeding America. Raising awareness of the hunger epidemic sweeping our country (and well, our world). 15.9 million children live in homes where they cannot consistently access enough nutrition to sustain a healthy life. In a country where girls literally starve themselves to fit cultural standards, there are millions of adults and children who actually ARE starving and don’t have enough food to survive.

During a time of the year when we are all focused on food and family, I feel it’s important to take a step back and think about others who may not be as lucky as we are. Find volunteer opportunities in your area. Virtually volunteer by spreading the word. Donate food, get involved, and help the 1 in 6 Americans who aren’t able to eat like you are.

Because of my job, I have  plethora of food laying around. I certainly can’t eat it all, nor do I have a bakery in which to sell the food. I can, however, donate extras to our church. Our church then brings it to Our Daily Bread, a Baltimore City based food kitchen.

2. The Recipe.

My recipe to contribute to our combined effort to raise hunger awareness is cheesecake. But this ain’t your regular cheesecake. Nope, not at all. There’s homemade salted caramel + cheesecake + Oreo cookie crust + chocolate chips. They’re mini, they’re cute, they’re decadent, and they’re simply divine.

The mini cheesecakes begin with a solid cheesecake base. You’ll need room temperature cream cheese, sugar, a dash of yogurt (or sour cream), 2 eggs, and vanilla. Just beat all of those basic ingredients together until smooth and add some mini chocolate chips. Regular sized chocolate chips would be fine as well.

The cheesecakes sit atop a simple Oreo cookie crust. The same crust I always use: crushed whole Oreos and melted butter. Press the mixture into 16-18 cupcake liners. Like so:

Oreo Cookie Crusts

Top the crusts with the cheesecake batter and bake. Allow the cheesecakes to chill in the refrigerator to “set.” There! You just made mini cheesecakes. It’s pretty simple, right?

Here’s the fun part: homemade salted caramel. Salted caramel is like liquid candy. Sweet, sticky, salted, sugary candy. Having a standard salted caramel recipe under your belt is priceless. Luckily, I have one for you.

I created a separate page for you to see exactly how I make salted caramel. Make sure you look at my step-by-step photos as a guide. Visuals always help me learn! With my salted caramel recipe, you’ll be an expert in no time, I promise.

(And you’ll want to pour the caramel on top of everything you eat, I promise.)

How to make Salted Caramel Sauce by

Mini chocolate chip cheesecakes with an Oreo cookie crust and homemade salted caramel.

Drizzle the salted caramel on top of each cheesecake. Some of your cheesecakes may slightly sink down. There are a variety of reasons why the centers may sink. Overmixing the eggs, not using a water bath, etc. That’s ok with these cheesecakes. You want a slight sink in the center so you have a place for the salted caramel. When it comes to full-sized cheesecakes, you want to be a little more aware of sinkage-prevention.

My favorite (full-size) cheesecake recipe, as well as tips to avoid cracks and sinks, is available in my cookbook. :)

Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes

Yield: 16-18 mini cheesecakes

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 3 hours, 50 minutes

Print Recipe

Mini chocolate chip cheesecakes with a thick Oreo cookie crust and topped with homemade salted caramel sauce.


Oreo Cookie Crust

  • 18 whole Oreos (Double Stuf or regular)
  • 1/4 cup (60g) unsalted butter, melted

Cheesecake Filling

  • 16 oz (448g) full-fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60g) yogurt*
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (180g) mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (or regular size)
  • homemade salted caramel sauce (step-by-step photos included)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line two 12-count cupcake pans with 18 liners.
  2. For the crust: In a food processor or blender, pulse the whole Oreos into a fine crumb. Stir the cookie crumbs and melted butter together in a medium sized bowl. Press 1 heaping Tablespoon of mixture into the bottom of each liner, see picture above for a visual. You should have enough for 16-18 cups. Bake in batches for 5 minutes and allow to slightly cool as you prepare the filling.
  3. For the filling: In a large bowl using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese on medium speed until completely smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add the sugar and yogurt and beat on medium speed until combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating on low speed after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the vanilla extract and mini chocolate chips.
  4. Spoon batter into the crusts until nearly full. Bake each pan for 20-23 minutes. The centers will still be slightly jiggly, that's OK.  The centers may also have risen up quite a bit, but they will deflate as the cheesecakes cool. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely at room temperature, at least 1 hour. Transfer to the refrigerator and allow to chill for at least two hours.
  5. Right before serving, top each cheesecake with salted caramel and additional chocolate chips, if desired. Cover cheesecakes tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Store cheesecakes (without caramel) in the freezer for up to 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight.

Additional Notes:

*Sour cream OR nonfat, low fat, vanilla, plain, Greek or regular yogurt is OK.

    I doubled the recipe. Uses 36 oreo and 1/2 cup of butter. This is really good but way too greasy. Is this normal?


    • Sallyreplied on July 16th, 2014 at 3:39 pm

      No, that is not normal. I suggest lessening the amount of butter if you double it next time. Though I’ve never had issues with the crust being greasy.

    Just made these this past weekend and already have multiple requests for another batch! They were delicious. I think I overfilled the liners with the oreo crust bc I ended up with way more cheesecake than needed, but the finished product was divine. Next time more oreos! Never a bad thing! :)

    Allison Marottaposted September 18, 2014 at 7:23 pm

    I am not a baker and attempted these this week….. the caramel sauce was surprisingly easy and is really good! I didn’t add salt while cooking it and I just put fresh ground sea salt on top when serving… so good.

    I made the cheesecakes in both regular muffin pans and mini muffin pans. Both ended up with an extremely greasy crust – I tried to follow the recipe exactly so I’m not sure what I did wrong. Other than that, they look great and taste great! If I make these again I think I would use less butter and cook the crusts a little longer and see if that helps.

    Thanks for the recipe!

    Hi there!

    These look amazing!! The inconvenient factor is that I’m allergic to eggs so I was wondering if there was anything that I could substitute the egg for in order to bake these?

    Is there a substitute for egg generally :(?

    Thanks heaps!


    • Amandareplied on November 25th, 2015 at 4:36 pm

      3 tbsp ground flaxseed with 1 tbsp. water, let sit for 5 mins until thick and that equals 1 egg. I use this for baking and you can’t tell the difference!

    Hi, Sally. These look simply amazing! I don’t bake often, and I’m wanting to make this recipe into bars. Could you tell me how to adjust the recipe to accommodate the size of a 13×9 or 9×13 inch pan? And have you ever tried adding toasted pecans in it?


    • Sallyreplied on October 13th, 2014 at 8:59 am

      Hi Jaden! So sorry for the delay responding. I was on vacation. I think this recipe would be great as bars in a 9×13 pan. I am unsure of the bake time though – sorry! But the batter and crust will certainly fit. Toasted pecans are a great addition. Either sprinkled on top after baking or folded into the batter before baking. Enjoy!

    Kimposted November 10, 2014 at 10:23 am

    I made these this wkend as a test run for Thanksgiving. They did come out amazing. My question to you is, can I make these on thanksgiving day in the morning to eat in the evening? Once the cakes are cooled off (room temperature) can I add the caramel and leave out and not stick in frig?


    • Sallyreplied on November 11th, 2014 at 8:18 am

      Hi Kim! You may absolutely make these on Thanksgiving day to eat in the evening. I do advise you to keep them in the refrigerator before serving. Cheesecake gets/tastes/looks a little off without proper chilling.

    Jacquieposted November 18, 2014 at 1:16 pm

    Can you tell me what you mean by ‘line two 12-count cupcake pans with 18 liners’ please? It sounds like six (of the 24) cupcake spaces wouldn’t have a liner but I doubt if that’s true. Thanks.


    • Sallyreplied on November 18th, 2014 at 1:41 pm

      this recipe makes about 18 mini cheesecakes. so, line your pans with 18 liners (12 in one, 6 in the other – or maybe 9 and 9? however you prefer) and bake in batches as directed.

    Made this for the family reunion on Friday, they were really yummy!!! One thing though, I don’t have a mixer with a pad so I just chunked the ingredients for the filling in the food processor. don’t think they mixed well though… do you think I can make do with a normal hand mixer for the filing or does it have to be pads?

    also for bite sized cheese cakes (mini muffin size) how long should I bake them for?

    Dianeposted November 23, 2014 at 5:44 pm

    I made these today for thanksgiving. I did use 18 oreos, ran out if the Oreo crust, had cheesecake filling left, for about three more, I am suggesting using about 25 oreos for the crust.
    thank-you for the recipe.

      I’m unsure of the bake time, it will likely be around half the time. Maybe a tiny bit longer.


    • Leannareplied on December 26th, 2014 at 11:19 am

      I made these in a mini muffin pan and changed nothing. Turned out perfect! From the pictures I thought they were already minis, so I didn’t think I needed to modify the recipe. Made for Christmas and everyone LOVED them. I did a little less Choc chips bc I love cheese cake and didn’t want te Choc to completely take over. I also used a little over a teaspoon to fill the cups. Tablespoon was too much.

      Definitely recommend – was way easier than I was expecting!!

Have put some on top on the cheesecakes and put back in the fridge ( as this is what I will have to do to transport them), but when I tried one the caramel had set on the top (not a prob) but it kind of slid off when trying to eat it. Is this normal or have I put too much butter in when making it? Thanks for such a fantastic recipe!

    Hi Sally! Am I supposed to bake the Oreo crusts for 5 minutes first? The recipe box says to do that “in batches” while making the filling, but the long text recipe post jumps right to filling them and then baking. Thanks for clarifying! Jenny

    I used your blog quite a bit during my “baking season” and I have to say that you have made a new fan. I made these for my new boyfriend’s family at our first Thanksgiving together and these people just destroyed these. I mean, you helped me impress 24 people; not one person disliked these. I keep getting requests to make them again and because of the demand, I think I’m going to keep this as a special-event-type recipe, that and the fact that these are very much an indulgence. *wink*

    Thank you!

      It doesn’t completely harden – it gets a little chewy.

    Gabbyposted February 17, 2015 at 9:15 am

    I just made this for my work bake off – everyone had high expectations from me as I had brought in your other yummy recipes before (triple salted caramel cupcake and choc chip raspberry banana bread). Other teams had been trying to trash talk me leading up to it, trying to throw me off my game, even when I am ill. I had not made a cheesecake in almost 10 years but it was my best bet – I don’t want to risk dry cakes/cupcakes and who could resist an oreo crust?

    This had to be perfect. One of my opponents accidentally brought his cake in a day early and I was told it looked good. I was shaking when I was laying it out for presentation, my team relied on me to make up some ground for the appalling week my team member had last week. I didn’t have time to try them out before I brought them in so I couldn’t be super confident and I hoped that the salted caramel wouldn’t burn in the microwave. Well no amount of trash talking could stand up when they saw when I brought out my plate of goodies – this was before they even got a taste!

    Everyone clearly stepped up in week 2 – one of my competitors’ cakes looked semi professional – I hadn’t even done his level of decorating before and I am one of the most seasoned bakers at work (even then this is very sporadic). The other competitor’s square cake looked neat but basic and I was quietly confident I would score points on presentation over his at least. The judge was left alone to taste the goods while we waited impatiently in another room. The results are in – the “decorated” Ferrero choc cake with Nutella cream frosting scored high on the presentation and creativity but low on texture and taste – it was too dry – exactly what I wanted to avoid. The square blueberry and lemon and drizzle cake was highly praised in taste and texture – but average on presentation and creativity. The cheesecake – not only did it look good straight up, the crunchy oreo base with creamy cheesecake middle and gooey salted caramel on top was just too much for the senses. It was a massive hit and won easily. Couldn’t shush my trash talkers though – they are now teasing me because they think the salted caramel is shop bought standard :p

      Mine are a little more white than golden on the top– it sounds like you may have overbaked them. Some golden brown is OK and if you don’t mind the appearance, completely fine to eat.

      I’m unsure of the exact time as a full cheesecake, Melissa. It will be a very thin cheesecake, though. I suggest using my favorite cheesecake recipe to bake a full cheesecake.

    This was my first attempt at making caramel and cheesecake. Had never ever attempted these! 
    I made the cheesecakes for someone that is competing in a fitness competition this coming weekend, as a post comp treat. He looooves cheesecake but had already prepped treats with Oreos. Soooo I decided to add my own touch and baked crispy Nutella cookies to make the base. I also made a few with m&m’s and Skor (for which I will prep a chocolate syrup). I tried one with the chocolate chips while it was still warm. Couldn’t wait any longer… 
    They are amazing!! I cannot wait to bring them on the weekend for the athletes to devour! And the Nutella cookie crust came out perfect. Amazing recipe.. Will make it again for sure!

    Thanks for the awesome mini cheesecake recipe. I used regular sized chocolate chips on accident but it was still delicious. I tried to follow your caramel recipe and ruined my tfal sauce pan due to the abrasiveness of the dry sugar being stirred. Perhaps a different type of pan should be used/recommended. I instead used Ree Drummond’s caramel recipe which mixes the cream, butter, and sugar together prior to cooking. It came out great!

    Hi. Thanks for this recipe. Is the caramel supposed to be served warm on top?

    Hi Sally – thanks for the awesome recipe. I am taking these to the thanksgiving family dinner and I wonder if I can top with the caramel at home. Transport and refrigerate until desert is served? Will the caramel be too hard? Or if I left it out until serving will the cheesecake not be good? What’s the best option? If I am unable to top with caramel just before serving?

      Lisa, I gave myself the day off on Thanksgiving when you asked this question. But in the future, you can bring them topped with caramel and keep at room temperature until serving. OR refrigerate but allow to come to room temperature before serving. The caramel shouldn’t be cold.

    Dear Sally,
    I made these last night and took to my daughters for her first home Thanksgiving. Her fiance’ doesn’t like chocolate (go figure! but, I like him anyway) so, I made three separate batches. One original, then original with peanut butter chips and for him, a graham cracker crust with mini toffees. You can really add anything in to the filling after it’s made. I also used the vanilla yogurt then found it a bit over sweet so I added 1/2 cup of sour cream to cut it some and it didn’t bother the texture. The salty caramel is divine. I will be making these again for our work Christmas get together. Thanks for the recipes! Next on the list is those decadent honey butter rolls!

      Oooooh I love the sounds of these with peanut butter chips! I’ll have to try it. Sounds like a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thanks for reporting back, Samantha!
