Mini Chocolate Cheesecakes

Ingredients

Cheesecakes

  • 9 creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookies or 18 vanilla wafer cookies
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) plus 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 eggs

Whipped Cream

  • 3/4 cup whipping (heavy) cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated or powdered sugar

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 18 medium muffin cups, 2 1/2x1 1/4 inches, with paper baking cups. Split sandwich cookies in half. Place 1 cookie half, middle side up, in each cup. Or place 1 wafer cookie, flat side down, in each cup.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Gradually beat in 1 cup sugar and the cocoa until fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well blended. Divide evenly among cups (cups will be almost full).
  • 3
    Bake cheesecakes 20 to 25 minutes or until centers are firm. Cool 15 minutes (cheesecake centers will sink while cooling). Refrigerate in muffin cups at least 1 hour; cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour longer before serving.
  • 4
    In chilled small bowl, beat all Whipped Cream ingredients with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Spoon Whipped Cream on chilled cheesecakes. Cover and refrigerate any remaining cheesecakes.

  • Make these cheesecakes up to 1 month ahead of time. Refrigerate cheesecakes 1 hour. Place in labeled airtight freezer container and freeze. About 3 hours before serving, place covered cheesecakes in refrigerator to thaw.
  • Garnish these festive cheesecakes with wedges of chocolate sandwich cookies.
