Twix Cheesecake


I love Twix and I love cheesecake, so the marriage of these ingredients was absolutely a match made in Heaven. I whipped these up for a quick Christmas dinner dessert. We always over indulge in all the turkey and fixins so we needed something small for dessert. (you can't go without dessert!) These were the perfect size and jam packed with flavor. These just might be my new favorite dessert. They will definitely be made again and again! 
Twix Cheesecake
Crust:

20 Oreos
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

Cheesecake Batter:

2 packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
12 mini Twix bars, chopped into small pieces 

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
Crush Oreos into fine crumbs. Add crumbs and sugar into a large bowl and mix. Pour in the melted butter and mix to coat all of the crumbs with butter.
Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners. Scoop a Tablespoon of the cookie crumbs into each cupcake liner. Using your hand, press the crumbs down firmly. 
In a large bowl mix the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add vanilla and lightly beaten eggs, mix well. Mix in the sour cream. 
Chop the mini Twix bars into small pieces. Add them into the cheesecake batter and gently fold them in.
Using an ice cream scooper, scoop the cheesecake batter into each cupcake liner. Bake the cheesecakes at 275 for 30 minutes. Let cool and chill in refrigerator overnight.
