Today, I have a delightful treat for you – Mini Chocolate Cheesecake with Raspberries. These little bites of heaven are the perfect indulgence for any chocolate lover. Not too sweet, with a hint of tanginess from the raspberries, they will surely satisfy your dessert cravings.
- 1 cup crushed chocolate graham crackers
- 3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- Fresh raspberries for topping
1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C) and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the crushed chocolate graham crackers and melted butter until well mixed. Press a spoonful of the mixture into the bottom of each cupcake liner to form the crust.
3. In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, cocoa powder, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
4. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the crust in each cupcake liner, filling them about 3/4 of the way full.
5. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the edges are set and the centers are slightly jiggly. Remove from the oven and let them cool completely in the tin.
6. Once cooled, carefully remove the mini cheesecakes from the muffin tin and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until firm.
7. Before serving, top each mini cheesecake with fresh raspberries for a burst of fruity flavor.
