Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecakes
This Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake is more pleasant to eat while the chocolate topping is still pliable. This dessert is a thick layer of ganache, cream cheese frosting, and a fresh berry on top of a chocolate strawberry cake! To add more texture and color to the frosting, sprinkle some graham cracker crumbs on top!
These two desserts in one! Combine mini cheesecakes and chocolate strawberries to make the ultimate bite-sized treats. They’re cooked using buttermilk, sour cream, no-bake, a water bath, and even in the Instant Pot, among other things. Instead of flowers or chocolate, why not make your Valentine a dozen of these mini chocolate strawberry cheesecakes? It’s a fun activity to do together! (Also, a great activity to do with kids!) Below I added some tips for making your dessert special.
Instructions for making Mini Cheesecakes:
The mini cheesecake can be baked ahead of time. Cool to room temperature before storing in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 48 hours.
- Cheesecake should be chilled before serving. Alternatively, refrigerate until ready to assemble in the fridge.
- In a double boiler, gently melt the chocolate (bain-marie).
- Individual cheesecakes should be topped with melted chocolate.
- Serve with a strawberry dipped in chocolate.
- Serve right away!
