mocha mousse cheesecakes


So here is the recipe for the yummy mini cheesecakes i made the other day that went pretty fast, i must say. I messed around with the original recipe mainly because it needed it. Oh, and i used chocolate teddy grahams because thats what i have at my house.

Mocha mousse cheesecakes

Oven at 325


1 cup chocolate cookie crumbs (teddy grahams!!)

4 tbsp butter, melted



3 pkg cream cheese, soft

½ cup sugar

½  cup light brown sugar

1 cup sour cream

3 eggs

1 ¼ cups semi sweet choc chips, melted

½ cup coffee, cooled

1 tbsp vanilla



¾ cup semisweet choc.

¼ cup butter, softened


Combine crumbs and butter to form a coarse meal. Put 1-2 tbsp into each LINED muffin cup. Press down. Chill while making filling. Combine cream cheese, sugars, sour cream. Add eggs, beat until smooth. Add melted chocolate, coffee, vanilla, beat again until smooth. Pour filling into prepared muffin cups, bake for 20 -25 minutes. Remove from oven, cool completely. Make glaze by melting choc and butter and stir. Pour glaze over top of cheesecakes then smooth with spatula. Refrigerate until firm.

I wouldn’t try eating these until they are completely cooled and chilled otherwise they don’t taste like mousse, just uncooked cheesecake filling. Oh, and once you have that glaze on the top and it hardens from the fridge, take it out and let it get back to room temp. Rad! One more thing, isn’t it funny how at the beginning of the recipe i have 4 Tbsp, but at the end i have 1/4 cup? Not funny so much as stupid. My bad.
