Girl Scout Cookie Cheesecake Cupcakes – Ingredients
➦ 14 Thin Mint Cookies (ground in food processor or blender)
➦ 0.5 Cup of sugar
➦ 1 egg
➦ 2.5 Tablespoons buttermilk
➦ 6 Thin Mint cookies coarsely crumbled
➦ 2 Tablespoons of melted butter
➦ 8 oz of softened cream cheese
➦ 0.25 Cup chocolate chips
➦ 2 to 3 Tablespoons heavy cream
➦ 3 to 5 Thin mint cookies, crumbled (for the top of cupcakes)
How to make Girl Scout Cookie Cheesecake Cupcakes
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. Combine ground cookies and butter in a medium bowl. Drop about 1 Tablespoon of cookie mixture into 24 mini cupcake tins that have been sprayed with cooking spray. (If you have mini cupcake paper wrappers I’d use them, it was difficult to remove my cheesecake cupcakes from the tin itself).
Press crust into cups with back of a spoon.
In an electric or stand mixer cream the cream cheese and sugar until well combined. Add egg and buttermilk until well combined as well. Stir in crumbled cookies.
Pour cheesecake mixture into cupcake tins filled almost to the very top.
Bake for 25-28 minutes or until cooked through. Remove and then cool for 20 minutes. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave until they are melted and smooth. Stir in heavy cream until smooth and shiny.
Spoon about 1 tablespoon over each cheesecake cupcake and sprinkle with additional crumbled cookies.
All that is left for you now is to enjoy 🙂
