Mini cheesecakes

I made these for a party we had and they seemed to be a big hit. They are a little on the sweet side for me but they were all gone at the end of the night and the kids especially seemed to enjoy them.

Mini Cheesecakes

1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
12 OREO Cookies
multi-colored sprinkles (optional)

BEAT cream cheese and sugar until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping.
PLACE cookies on bottom of 12 paper-lined muffin cups.
SPOON cream cheese mixture into muffin cups. Top with multi-colored sprinkles. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
