Delightful Mini Cheesecake Recipe

An easy mini cheesecake recipe on a chocolate wafer crust.


1 1/2 cups chocolate wafers
4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
12 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon all purpose flour
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
2 Tablespoons milk

Optional garnish:
Cocoa powder
Decorative chocolate pieces


Preheat oven to 350F.

In a food processor, grind chocolate wafers, butter, sugar, and a pinch of salt.

Pat into a 12 hole cheesecake tray pressing firmly into the bottoms.

Bake for 8 minutes and then let cool completely on a wire rack.

Beat cream cheese and sugar for several minutes--until completely smooth.

Add flour and vanilla, stir well. Add egg and milk. Mix just until combined and smooth.

Pour cheesecake mixture into pan, filling each cavity slightly more than 3/4 full.

Bake at 375F for 15-20 minutes, or until there is only a slightly jiggle left in the cake.

Cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for 2 hours.

Remove from pan, and decorate with cocoa powder and decorative chocolate.
