To assemble
  1. Place oreo crumbs in the bottom of 4 small glasses. You can use those made for mini desserts or, like I did, glass jars from Glade candles.
  2. Place a dollop of mocha cheesecake over crumbs. Continue to layer Oreo crumbs and cheesecake until glasses are filled.
  3. Garnish with whipped cream and top with either a chocolate covered espresso bean or an Oreo.
