Updated on February 17, 2017

Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Cheesecake

Makes 18 mini cheesecakes

Ingredients

Vegetarian

Produce

  • 18 Strawberries

Refrigerated

  • 2 Eggs, large
  • 1 Yolk, large

Baking & Spices

  • 56 8 oz dark chocolate
  • 3/4 cup Granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt, fine
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract

Snacks

  • 1 3/4 cup Graham crackers, ground

Dairy

  • 6 tbsp Butter, unsalted
  • 16 oz Cream cheese

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Combine ground graham crackers and melted butter. Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoon of mixture into each mini cheesecake mold cavity. Use a tamper or cocktail muddler to pack crust into mold. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar while the machine runs on slow. Add eggs and yolk one at a time. Scrape down bowl as needed to ensure thorough mixing. Add vanilla and salt. Mix until smooth. Evenly divide cheesecake filling among molds. Smooth tops.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cheesecake will puff up slightly during baking, but will flatten once cooled. Let baked cheesecake cool to room temperature in pan. Transfer to fridge and let chill for at least 1 hour.
  5. Once cheesecakes are chilled throughout, remove mini cheesecake from mold by pushing up on the removable bottoms. Spoon melted chocolate over each individual cheesecake. Dip strawberries in melted chocolate and place on top of chocolate covered cheesecake. Serve immediately.

No Bake White Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecakes

Makes 12 mini cheesecakes

Ingredients

Produce

  • 12 Strawberries

Baking & Spices

  • 1 Cool whip
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp Vegetable shortening
  • 12 oz White chocolate chips

Snacks

  • 7 Graham crackers

Dairy

  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • 1 package Cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup Heavy cream

Desserts

  • 2/3 cup Colored candy melts, red

Directions:

CRUST

  1. Using a food processor or blender, pulse graham crackers into crumbs. Combine the melted butter with the crumbs, and mix until it’s thick.
  2. Lightly spray a mini cheesecake pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place a heaping 1/2 tbsp of graham cracker crumbs in each cheesecake well, and press the mixture down firmly using a spatula. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes to harden.

CHEESECAKE

  1. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the white chocolate chips and heavy cream. Stir occasionally, until the chips are melted and smooth. This may take up to 10 minutes, but keep the heat on low or a little higher than low.
  2. Once melted, remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool on the counter for 15 minutes.
  3. Once the chocolate is cool, combine the melted chocolate and softened cream cheese in a mixing bowl. Beat using an electric mixer until the mixture is smooth and no lumps remain. Spoon or pipe the cheesecake mixture into the cheesecake wells. Use a spatula to push the cheesecake into the well and to smooth the top.
  4. For best results refrigerate the mini cheesecakes over night, be sure to cover with tinfoil or plastic wrap. 2 hours before serving, move the cheesecakes into the freezer. This will help the cheesecakes harden, making them easier to remove.
  5. To remove the cheesecakes - Use a finger to press up on the removable buttons, sliding the cheesecakes up and out of the pan. Place the cheesecakes on a small baking sheet and return them to the freezer while you make the red chocolate topping.

RED CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE

  1. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine 2/3 cup of red candy melts and vegetable shortening. Stir occasionally, until the chips are melted and smooth. This may take up to 8 minutes, but keep the heat on low or a little higher than low. Once the chocolate is melted, add the powdered sugar to the mixture and stir until no lumps remain. The mixture should be thicker at this point. Remove the cheesecakes from the freezer and spoon some red chocolate on top of each cheesecake. You want the topping to drip down the sides of the cheesecakes.

BEFORE SERVING

  1. Top each cheesecake with a dollop of cool whip and a strawberry. I used a piping bag to pipe the cool whip on.

Cheesecake Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Ingredients

Vegetarian

Produce

  • 16 oz Strawberries

Baking & Spices

  • 1/3 cup Cheesecake filling mix
  • 4 oz Cool whip
  • 3/4 cup Milk chocolate
  • 3 tbsp Powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla

Snacks

  • 1 Graham crackers from box

Dairy

  • 4 oz Cream cheese

Instructions

  1. Melt chocolate (I melt it over a double broiler). Set aside to cool.
  2. Wash strawberries. Cut tops off of strawberries and hollow them out with a small knife, teaspoon or strawberry huller.
  3. Cut off a small portion off of the bottom of each strawberry. When cutting be sure to cut straight so the strawberries will stand. Pat strawberries DRY.
  4. Once chocolate has cooled dip the top of the strawberry into the chocolate (we like chocolate so I do about half of the strawberry). Once dipped place strawberry onto the parchment paper. Let the chocolate set before adding cream. (If the chocolate begins to thicken, just reheat.)
  5. With a mixer on medium speed; combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and cheesecake mix until fluffy, about 1-2 minutes (the cheesecake filling should just about dissolve and not be lumpy).
  6. Add the cool whip and mix again.
  7. Add cream to decorating bag and pipe cream into each strawberry. Take some of the crushed graham crackers and sprinkle over cream. Enjoy! Keep refrigerated if not enjoyed immediately.
