Weekend Sweets: Cheesecake Bites

I was trying to come up with a quick and fun dessert for my mom's graduations that looks fancy but is easy to make and I came up with these little cheesecake bites. This picture does not do them justice, probably because this picture is terrible!
2 C milk
1 (8oz) package cream cheese
1 (3.4oz) package white chocolate instant pudding mix
1 package vanilla cream sandwich cookies (golden oreos work well)
cut fruit for topping
Tinfoil baking cups

Step 1: Lay all of your tinfoil muffin cups out on a cookie sheet (you want to use the foil cups because they'll hold up better than the paper ones). Place one cookie in the bottom of each cup.

Step 2: Put cream cheese and milk in a blender and mix well. Add the pudding mix to the blender, mix and let sit for a minute or two until the mixture stiffens up. When the consistency is like that of thick pudding use a spoon (I used an ice cream scoop and it worked perfectly) so plop some on to your cookies. You don't want to overfill the cups, leave about 3/4" from the top of the cup unfilled.

Step 3: Top with cut fresh fruit. I used strawberries on the trial run and then blackberries on the ones for my mom's graduation which I unfortunately did not get a picture of. Serve fairly soon after making, as time goes on, the pudding will seep into the cookie making it soggy, still good, but not as good. Enjoy!
