Funfetti Cake Batter Mini Cheesecakes

We have a local commercial around here for a help wanted site. Basically, it's a site to search jobs in this hopeless economy.

The radio commercials are so funny though and their catch phrase is "long name, amazing results".

Which is exactly what these cheesecakes are. 

They might have a long name, take hours to wait to for, and won't guarantee a job after the application. 

But I promise if your potential boss got even a whiff of these, you'd be hired on the spot.

I'd hire you anyways...

Plus, who doesn't like cake!? And not just any cake... Funfetti! 

Next time you go for a job interview attach these little guys to your resume, drop it on the desk and walk out.

Guarantee they'll call you in 5 minutes....

..... to finish the interview but that's irrelevant......

Cheesecake Batter:
Adapted from

16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, beaten slightly
1/2 cup full fat sour cream
2/3 cup funfetti cake mix
2 tablespoons rainbow sprinkles
18-20 Birthday cake or Golden Oreos (I used both!)

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese on medium speed for a few minutes. Add in the sugar and mix for a couple of minutes longer until combined. Add in the vanilla and mix. Slowly add in the beaten eggs and mix until fully incorporated. Add in the sour cream and beat on medium until combined, careful not to over beat the cheesecake batter.  

Sift in the cake mix to decrease any lumps. The sprinkles will not sift so simply pour those in. Add the 2 tablespoons of sprinkles and mix on low until just combined. 

Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners. Place a whole Oreo on the bottom and cover with 2 scoops from a "cookie dough spoon". Spread the batter out with the back of a spoons or knife.

Bake at 275 degrees for 30 minutes. Let cool in the pans for 5 minutes then transfer to a refrigerator to set.

(Excuse my cupcake pans they have been through a lot but are the BEST!)

Once set up you are free to enjoy... and enjoy you will!!!! Have a good weekend everyone!
