These mini hot cocoa cheesecakes are not only adorable but are delicious and so easy to make!
What You’ll Need
10 sandwich cookies, finely crushed
1 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup plus 1 tsp. sugar, divided
1/4 cup plus 1/2 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
2 oz. BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
3/4 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows
What to Do
Heat oven to 325°F.
Combine cookie crumbs and butter; press onto bottoms of 12 paper-lined muffin cups. Bake 8 min.
Beat cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa powder in medium bowl with mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Spoon over crusts.
Bake 22 to 25 min. or until centers are almost set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 2 hours.
Meanwhile, cover baking sheet with parchment. Melt semi-sweet chocolate as directed on package; spoon into resealable plastic bag. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag; use to squeeze chocolate into 12 shapes on prepared baking sheet to resemble cup handles as shown in photo. Freeze until ready to use.
Remove liners from cheesecakes. Beat cream and remaining sugar in separate medium bowl with mixer on high speed until soft peaks form; spoon onto cheesecakes. Sprinkle with remaining cocoa powder; top with marshmallows. Gently press chocolate handle into side of each cheesecake.
