1 cup (2 sticks) butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
2.5 cups flour

“First make the chocolate chip cookie dough. Beat butter, sugar, and granulated sugar until fluffy, then beat in vanilla and eggs. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl, then slowly stir into the butter mixture.  Add chocolate chips and chill for 30 minutes or freeze until ready to use.

Preheat Oven to 325 degrees F. Paper-line 24 muffin cups. Fill the bottom of each muffin cup with layer of cookie dough (approximately 1 tablespoon or more, depending on how thick you want the cookie crust).

Now try not to attack these babies yet… I know pure and utter torture!

While the cheesecake cups cool, make the whipped cream. Whisk heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add confectioners sugar and whisk until combined. Cover tightly and refrigerate.

Once the cheesecake cups are cooled, place a dollop of whipped cream on top and sprinkle mini chocolate chips.

    My aunt used to make these frequently and used an Oreo cookie as the bottom crust. They are great to make for parties.

  8. Ashley says:

    I would love to know what size can to use for the sweetened condensed milk. I made these with a 14oz can (didn’t even use all of it). They did not set and are so goupy they must be eaten with a spoon. There are several size options in the store, I went with the medium size since it was specified.

  9. penny says:

    i love cheesecake and those look really delicious!

  10. Dawn says:

    I want to make these but are concerned the cheesecake measurements may be wrong. I think there should be 3 pkgs of cream cheese and 3 eggs, which is a standard recipe with a 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk. It may be why one reader had a problem.

  11. jenn s. says:

    Hi Dawn & Ashley –
    After looking at some similar recipes, it looks like the appropriate amount of sweetened condensed milk for 2 packages of cream cheese should be 8 oz, which may be the smallest can available?

    I’ll double check when I’m at the store on the can sizes, but I’m going to go ahead and update the ingredients list to specify a small can/8 oz. Thanks for the tips!

    You are right, it does not add up. I filled about 32 cupcakes with the dough and still had a ton left. I only had enough cheesecake mix to fill 24 of them

  15. Dawn says:

    Disappointed in these instructions. Tried them tonight and found that the cookie recipe is basically for Toll House cookies and to fill the muffin pan for 24 would use too much dough. I decreased it to a Tbsp. scoop and adjusted the cheesecake to 3 blocks cream cheese, 14oz. can sw. cond. milk (which I think is the smallest they sell) 3 eggs and 2 tsp. vanilla.

  16. jenn s. says:

    Thanks so much to everyone for their feedback on the recipe. It looks like Natasha’s turned out well for her, based on the great photos of the final result, but we’re going to do a batch here and may adjust the recipe a little based on the results and everyone’s recommendations. Keep you posted!

    P.S. – For those of you that needed to increase the cream cheese from 3 packages to 2 – were you using 8 oz packages each – so 24 oz total? I googled a few more recipes for “cheesecake cookie cups” and they all called for only 2 8-oz packages, just like this one. So strange that the results are turning out so differently for everyone!

  17. Luly says:

    Made these last night & they came out perfect & ubberly delicious… off to eat more :P

  18. megan says:

    Thanks for the recipe! I made them last weekend, and they turned out perfectly. I cheated a little and instead of making the cookie dough, I purchased a tube of Pilsbury chocolate chip cookie dough, divided it evenly among the 24 muffin cups, and then followed the rest of the directions as stated. For the cheesecake mixture, I used my cookie scoop and two scoops filled the muffin cups up almost to the top. They were perfect that way!

    My work is having a chocolate dessert contest for Valentine’s day, and I think I will make these again, except I will top them with a whipped chocolate ganash instead of whipped cream.

  19. megan says:

    I should add, I used 2 packages of cream cheese and 8 oz of sweetened condensed milk. The smallest can my store had was 14 oz, but I just use 1 cup of it, which is 8 oz. There was just a tiny bit of the cheescake batter left after I filled my 24 cups.

  20. Heather says:

    Could this be death by delish?!

  21. Red Wine says:

    In the words of Homer Simpson…mmmmm, gggrrrgghhhhh

  22. Dawn R. says:

    I trial baked these for my daughter’s baby shower in a few weeks, and they turned out WONDERFUL. I used two 8oz pkg of cream cheese and the 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk. Because of the concern over how much “milk”, I SLOWLY added about a third of the can at a time, beating well with each addition. I DID BAKE THEM FOR 20-25 MIN. THOUGH. Couldn’t keep my sons and husband away from them. (with the left over cookie dough, make more or just bake some cookies!)

  23. Heidi says:

    Delicious! Thanks!
    I also had to bake the cheesecake longer, but I live at a higher altitude. The cookie part also sunk a bit, but nothing a huge dollop of whipped cream couldn’t hide :)

  24. Heather says:

    Made these for my co-workers for Valentine’s Day. Everyone loved them. Thanks for posting the recipe.

  25. CB says:

    They look delicious – I’m sure mine won’t turn out that nice, but I’ll give it a go!

  26. lauren says:

    I made these the exact way the recipe says, but my oven runs a little hot so maybe you just need to bake them longer for the cheesecake part. I also had a lot of cookie dough left over, I wonder what I shall do with it?

  27. lauren says:

    also I used Andes mints chopped up instead of mint chocolate chips couldn’t seem to find them anywhere!

  28. Laura says:

    Not much of a baker but these sound wonderful.
    I am going to give it a try, I will let you know how they turn out

  29. Jessica says:

    These sound delish! I will be trying them this weekend for an Easter dessert! Thanks!

    Lauren-it calls for mini chocolate chips, not mint. But did it turn out good with that variation?

  30. Nurinator says:

    I just made them with the original recipe…the cheesecake was perrrfect! But, I had to cook it for 30 minutes. I was afraid the cookie would burn but they turned out pretty good :)

  31. I’m still in the process of finishing these but all the measurements worked perfectly for mine.
    I can NOT wait to have everyone dig into these tiny wonders. :)
    MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT OVER MIX the cheesecake batter, this could make it a little different consistency. I definitely have more cookie batter left than cheesecake mix. I’ll just make a few cookies. :) Gives me something to snack on now and keep me away from the cheesecakes! :)

  32. Katy says:

    I just wanted to send you a note saying, I’ve been making these for the past year and a half and they are the most requested desert by my family and friends- SO delicious!! Thank you for sharing this recipe!!!
