Cheers everyone and merry Christmas! Christmas is only two weeks away, yikes!!! It seems to be sneaking up really quickly this year. No worries though, I’ve got mini cheesecakes to give me just the energy boost I need to get all of that Christmas shopping done.
Mini cheesecakes are hand held desserts that are perfect for holiday entertaining!
This “artzy” appetizer is really elegant and so easy to make.
You crush some chocolate wafer cookies in a food processor and add some melted butter for the crust. I used a shot glass to press the crust into the bottom of miniature cupcake wrappers. Next, I mixed up a batch of my cheesecake batter and poured it on top of the crust. I baked them in a miniature muffin tin at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. They came out perfectly!
After they cooled, I removed the cupcake wrapper, piped some cream cheese frosting on the top, dusted them with cocoa powder, and topped them off with a chocolate covered espresso bean.
These scrumptious little bites of cheesecake are creamy and delicious, yet they are not too sweet. For me they are about 3 bites, which is the perfect amount of dessert. For my husband, they are 1 bite, so he eats a few more.😉 Your guests are going to love these mini cheesecakes!
