Directions

  • 1. Crust: Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C). Line 24 muffin cups (2 1/2-inch/6 cm diameter) with paper baking cups or spray with nonstick cooking spray.* Toss crumbs with cocoa, icing sugar and butter until well combined. Press about 1 tbsp (15 mL) crumb mixture onto the bottom of each cup.
  • 2. Cheesecake: Blend cocoa with butter. Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in cocoa mixture. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Divide mixture evenly between muffin cups.
  • 3. Bake for 35 minutes or until set. Cool for 15 minutes; remove from pan and cool to room temperature on a rack. Chill completely.
  • 4. Chocolate Glaze: Combine chocolate chips, whipping cream and vanilla in a medium saucepan set over low heat. Cook, stirring until smooth. Immediately spread over cheesecakes; allow to set. Serve at room temperature.
  • Makes 24 mini cheesecakes.
  • Tip:
  • *If nonstick cooking spray is used, cool baked cheesecakes completely in pan. Place pan in freezer for 15 minutes; remove with a thin spatula.
