There is no crust to make, roll out and bake.   There is no warm water ensuring the cheesecake doesn’t crack.  And most importantly, no pressure.

How to Make St. Paddy’s Day Mint Cheesecake Cups:

To Make the Filling:

  1. Whip up some heavy cream until it forms stiff peaks, setting aside a portion to use as a topping later.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese with powdered sugar until smooth.
  3. Add in peppermint and vanilla extracts, along with a few drops of green food coloring for that festive touch. Once everything is well mixed and green with no white streaks, gently fold in the chilled whipped cream and mini chocolate chips.

Now, it’s time to assemble your dessert:

  1. Crush up some Oreo cookies into fine crumbs.
  2. Layer the cookie crumbs at the bottom of round bottom glasses, followed by a layer of the cheesecake mixture.
  3. Repeat this process, finishing off with a dollop of the reserved whipped cream on top.
  4. To be a little extra: garnish each glass with an Oreo cookie, Thin Mint cookie, or Andes mints. Pop them in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving to let the flavors meld together.


  • Cookie Crumb Base: Experiment with different types of cookie crumbs for the base, such as graham crackers or chocolate wafers, to add unique flavors and textures.
  • Flavor Variations: Try using peppermint extract or add a splash of Irish cream liqueur or Irish Whiskey for an authentic Irish twist.
  • Colorful Garnishes: Play around with different garnishes to enhance the St. Patrick’s Day theme. Use green sprinkles, edible gold flakes, or shamrock-shaped candies to add a fun and festive flair to the dessert.
  • Individualized Portions: Serve the cheesecake cups in individual-sized portions for easy serving and a charming presentation. Use mini mason jars, shot glasses, or decorative dessert cups to showcase each delectable treat.
  • Toppings: Sprinkle crushed Lucky Charms cereal, shamrock shaped sprinkles or green colored sugar crystals on top.
  • Baileys Whipped Cream: Top the cheesecake cups with Baileys-infused whipped cream for an extra indulgent treat. This adds a creamy, boozy flavor that pairs perfectly with the cheesecake filling.


  • Irish Cake Pops: Bite-sized bursts of sweetness, packed with Irish charm that’ll have you feelin’ lucky with every bite.
  • Shamrock Shake: It’s not just a shake, it’s an experience, baby.
  • Savory Irish Cottage Pie: Layers of hearty goodness that’ll warm you up from the inside out.

          I quadrupled it for 21 mini stemmed wine glasses (dollar store), and a family pack size of Oreos

      When I made these, I doubled the recipe and got 8. However, I used the short, clear disposable wine cups, not a larger wine glass.

    The recipe was easy to make but the serving size was difficult. It’s a lot easier if you have a hand mixer or a mixing bowl cause doing it by hand is a hassle. Each cup I had was two layers of oreo and cheese filling I made 10 cups. I did use 4 blocks of cream cheese and just multiplied everything else by 4, wish it was clear how many servings. But they came out very cute and everyone loved them.

    If your planning to make for more than 3 people you’ll need to triple or quadruple this recipe!
