    Triple Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes

    My Triple Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes are the most perfect chocolate dessert treats to impress on Valentine’s Day. Is there a more romantic ingredient than chocolate on Valentine’s Day? The answer to that question is a resounding yes and it is triple chocolate! These decadent little cheesecake bites will definitely win the way to your lover’s heart this year.

    I use Oreo cookies to make the chocolate base for these mini cheesecakes. For the cheesecake itself, I start by beating cream cheese in an electric mixer. Then I add sour cream, sugar, eggs, vanilla and cooled melted chocolate. I pour the cheesecake mix onto the oreo bases and bake in the oven. Once the mini cheesecakes have cooled, I drizzle chocolate ganache on top and serve with chocolate shavings. 

    To make Triple Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes, you will need the following ingredients:
