Mint Cheesecake Cupcakes Recipe + Enter to Win a Years’ Worth of Groceries

Raise your hand if you love cheesecake!  I know, who doesn’t love cheesecake right?  My fellow cheesecake fans you are going to love these mint cheesecake cupcakes, they are amazing! This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of United Supermarkets.

I went to my local United Supermarkets for their Stock Up Sale the other day, which I highly recommend checking out and purchased all sorts of good stuff.  OREO’S being one of them, rather than having a package of OREO’S sitting around the house I decided to use them to make these mint cheesecake cupcakes for my daughter’s dance team.  I promised them cheesecake about a month ago, so I figured it was time to fulfill my obligation, lol.

I sure hope you enjoy these mint cheesecake cupcakes as much as my daughter’s dance team!  There wasn’t one left, lucky for me I tried one before I took them.

I’m planning on heading back to my local United Supermarkets this weekend to REALLY stock up my pantry!  I mean, you can’t go wrong the prices are amazing and with kids in the house, I’m always looking for ways to save money and keep my pantry stocked!
