Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites made of graham cracker base and a cheesecake layer, covered with chocolate are so delicious. Yummy…
They are perfect for holidays – fancy looking and easy to prepare they will make your holiday atmosphere complete. Christmas is coming. You can feel euphoria and the holiday spirit in the air.
We are thinking about how to spend a holiday, buying presents for our loved ones and planning to make the holiday even nicer with the food that we are going to prepare. You can trust me with desserts.
We all like plenty of colorful cookies for Christmas. Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites will perfectly fit your Christmas cookies plate. What I like most about them is their bite size and of course – taste. Classic cheesecake flavor is hidden under the chocolate.
It is a cheesecake wrapped up differently. It can be decorated according to the occasion. I´ve used green and red sprinkles, since Christmas is coming. You can sprinkle them with chopped nuts, chocolate sprinkles, candy cane crumbs, M&Ms….I leave that to you, use your imagination and be creative.

How to prepare Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites?
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line 9 x 9 inch baking pan with parchment paper. In a medium dish combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, sugar and cinnamon. Press firmly on the bottom of the baking pan.
In a large dish beat, at low speed, cream cheese and sugar, until light and fluffy. Add sour cream, egg and egg white and beat until creamy. Add vanilla, flour and salt and beat until combined, not over mix. Spread the batter over the graham cracker base and bake for 35 min. Leave to cool at a room temperature and then transfer to fridge for at least 4 h or until solid.
Take out of the oven and remove the parchment paper. Cut the cheesecake into 1 inch dices. Melt chocolate, following the instructions given on the package. Add oil and stir. The mixture should be put in a small, deeper dish. Take cheesecake bites using a fork, and dip them into melted chocolate. Make sure that the bites are completely covered with chocolate.
Place them on the sheet pan lined with parchment paper and sprinkle. Put them in the fridge and let the chocolate tighten.
