  • For the crust

  • Put the chocolate cookies in the blender (without the filling) and crush them until they're completely crushed.
  • Melt the butter in the microwave for 15 seconds, mix it with the pulverized cookies.
  • Prepare 10 (2-1/2 inch) round molds by spraying with cooking spray and putting a strip of parchment paper in the inside of every mold.
  • Pour 1 1/2 tablespoons of the cookies mixture, use a spoon to press cookie mixture firmly down to create a crust.
  • Cover with foil paper and put it in the refrigerator while you make the cake.
  • For the cake

  • Preheat the oven to 300°F.
  • Beat the cream cheese with the vanilla until it is very creamy, add the sugar and keep beating.
  • Add the eggs and the single egg yolk and beat until everything is well mixed.
  • Separate the mixture in two equal parts.
  • Add the coloring in one of the mixtures and mix until you achieve a vibrant orange color.
  • Remove the molds from the refrigerator and carefully pour the mixture on each of the molds, first the orange and then the white one.
  • Bake the cakes for 35 minutes, when the time's up, turn off the oven but leave the cakes in it with the oven's door semi-open for 15 more minutes.
  • Bring them out and let them cool for roughly 10 minutes or until they've cooled off.
  • Cover them and put the cooking sheet in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
  • For the frosting

  • Place the chocolate and the whipped topping in a medium sized bowl, heat in the microwave for 1 minute, take it out and stir the mix, if needed put in the microwave again in 10 second intervals until attaining a creamy mix.
  • Remove cakes from molds and discard parchment paper.
  • Spread the chocolate on top of the cakes.
  • Melt the white chocolate in the microwave for 25 seconds, stir until creamy.
  • Put the white chocolate in the pastry bag and draw circles over the cakes.
  • With a toothpick, trace straight lines from the middle of the circles to the outside of them.

Tips

When applying the white chocolate to the cheesecakes, do one cake at a time, otherwise the chocolate circles harden and you won't be able to make the lines with the toothpick.
