I've been wanting to try out Martha Stewarts oreo cheesecake cups for quite awhile. It's kind of funny to call it "Martha Stewart's recipe" when people have been adding oreos to various cheesecake recipes for ages, but this particular recipe is in her cookbook Cupcakes.
One box of Trader Joe's holiday peppermint Joe Joe's and and a package of Ande's mints peppermint crunch baking chips is all it takes to turn regular 'ole cheesecake into holiday peppermint cheesecake.
I topped these with a sprinkling of these Andes peppermint crunch chips I'd found. I'm not sure why they are called crunch since they are similar in texture to any other chocolate or white chocolate chip. They are pretty high on the peppermint flavor scale--just a little sprinkle on top along with the peppermint in the Joe Joe's and there is absolutely no need to add any peppermint extract to the cheesecake itself. Of course, if you can't find the Andes chips you can always omit and just add a few drops of peppermint oil directly to the batter.
It's chocolate, peppermint and cheesecake. What else is there to say?
