- Portion size 12 servings
- Credits : Canadian Living Magazine: November 2015
- 1 cup chocolate wafer crumbs
- 3 tablespoons butter melted
- 2 pkg (each 250 g) cream cheese softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cups HERSHEY'S CHIPITS Pure Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam
MethodIn small bowl, mix together chocolate cookie crumbs and butter until crumbs are moistened; press into bottom of each paper-lined well of 12-count muffin pan. Set aside.
In large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth; beat in sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, just until combined; stir in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips. Spoon mixture over crusts, smoothing tops. Top each with 1 tsp of the jam.
Bake in 325?F (160?C) oven until edges are set and centres still jiggle slightly, 22 to 28 minutes. Let cool on rack; refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours.
In heatproof bowl set over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt remaining chocolate chips, stirring until smooth. Let cool slightly; drizzle over mini cheesecakes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 48 hours.)
Tip from The Test Kitchen: To easily form the base of the cheesecakes, use the bottom of a tablespoon measure to pack the cookie mixture into the bottom of each muffin well.?
