For the Crust:
- 1 Family-sized package Golden Oreos, crushed
- ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
For the Filling:
- 16 oz cream cheese
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 cup heavy cream
- Orange food coloring
- Yellow food coloring
For the Topping:

Prepare your muffin pan by lining it with cupcake liners for easy removal. Set it aside.
Begin by crushing the Oreos. You can use a food processor or place the cookies in a ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Transfer the Oreo crumbs to a medium bowl.
Mix the crushed Oreos with the melted butter until it resembles wet crumbs.
Measure out 1 tablespoon of the Oreo mixture into each cupcake liner and press it into the bottom. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the softened cream cheese and sugar. Add in the heavy whipping cream, honey, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.
Divide the cheesecake batter equally between two bowls. Tint one bowl with orange food coloring and the other with yellow. Stir to combine thoroughly.
Pour one spoonful of yellow cheesecake batter into each cupcake liner, filling it to about half full. Follow up with a spoonful of orange batter and spread the cheesecake batter evenly.
Chill the entire pan(s) in the fridge for 2-4 hours or until set.
Just prior to serving, make the whipped cream. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the heavy cream and powdered sugar. Whip on high speed for 2-3 minutes or until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip.
Pipe a medium-sized mound of whipped cream on each cheesecake.
Top with sprinkles or decorations of your choice.
