I’m already looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert. And this dessert only has to meet one criteria. Please say this with me… It must be contain chocolate!
With that in mind, I decided to do a test run on one of the desserts I’m considering. These Strawberry Kiss Cheesecakes are absolutely delicious and ADDICTING. Yes, I am thinking I may need to enroll in Cheesecake Overeaters Anonymous after making these.
These desserts are so simple to make, yet people will ooh and ah over them. I just love that don’t you?
Strawberry Kiss Cheesecakes
Makes 2 dozen mini cheesecakes. Line regular sized muffin pans with paper liners.
1 1/4 c. graham crackers, crushed
3 tbsp. granulated sugar
3 tbsp. margarine, melted
Combine ingredients in medium sized bowl; mix thoroughly. Put a heaping tablespoon of crust mix into each paper liner. Pack down using the bottom of a small juice glass.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
(2) 8 oz. packages of light cream cheese, softened
1 c. granulated sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
6 Dark Chocolate Hershey Kisses, unwrapped and ground (I used my food processor for this.)
24 Milk Chocolate Hershey Kisses, unwrapped and set aside
In a large sized bowl, add cream cheese, eggs, and sugar. Using electric mixer, beat until smooth and creamy. Add vanilla; mix thoroughly. Fill paper liners about 2/3 full with filling and sprinkle ground dark chocolate on top of the filling.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center. Remove from oven and insert the milk chocolate kisses into the center of each cake. Cool completely before removing from pan.
Thaw one package of frozen crushed strawberries, and add sugar to taste.
