Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes Recipe
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.
*If nonstick cooking spray is used, cool baked cheesecakes completely in pan. Place pan in freezer for 15 minutes; remove with a thin spatula.
