I really enjoy cheesecakes, both fruit and chocolate ones, so I often prepare them. They are great for some special occasions or holidays, like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, birthdays…

They look fancy, taste awesome and they are easy to prepare. Oreo crust, creamy chocolate cheesecake layer and chocolate ganache make a perfect combination. With the very first bite you will feel this full, rich taste of chocolate and cream cheese.

How to prepare Chocolate Mini Cheesecake?

Preheat the oven to 300 F. Line a muffin pan with 16 foil cupcake liners. Combine Oreo crumbs with butter and press at the bottom of the cupcake liners to form a layer. Melt chocolate chips and leave to cool. In a large dish beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla, at medium speed, until it becomes smooth.

Add eggs and beat some more, until creamy. Finally, fold in melted chocolate and beat until combined. Spread over Oreo layer and bake for 20-25 min. Take out of the oven and leave in a muffin pan to cool completely. Transfer to the fridge for at least 2 hours, or until chilled.

To make ganache – Put heavy whipping cream in the pan, on medium heat, and then remove from heat, before it comes to boil. Add chocolate chips, oil and chocolate syrup, then stir until smooth. Spoon ganache on top of each cheesecake. Decorate with chocolate swirls.

What is important for cheesecake to be tasty?

Cheese should be at a room temperature, so it could easily fold in with the other ingredients.  Eggs should also be at a room temperature. Use quality semi sweet chocolate or chocolate chips. Try not to over mix the dough, it is going to be airy and then you risk making cracks while baking it. Beat at a low speed.

NOTES:

18 Oz cream cheese – if in your store CREAM CHEESE comes in 8 Oz packages you can take 2 packages of cream cheese and 1/4 from third package, or find 3 Oz pack and take 6.

You can substitute cocoa powder for the semi sweet chocolate chips.

I used whole Oreos.

These look delicious! Can a mini cheesecake pan be used to make these? The cavities in these pans are smaller than muffin pans, so I was just wondering how long to cook in one of these pans? Thanks.

Hi Rachel,

If they are smaller, the baking time will be shorter. I don't know exactly how much because I didn't cook in a mini cheesecake pan.

Best, Dragana
