Individual chocolate cheesecakes on top of chocolate cookie crusts - who can resist? A fine finish to any holiday meal.


Chocolate wafers

12 item(s), about 2 1/2 oz

Neufchâtel cheese

8 oz, softened

2% reduced fat milk

1 cup(s)



Unflavoured gelatin

2 tbsp(s)

Unsweetened cocoa powder

3 tbsp(s)


1 cup(s), boiling


  1. Line 12 muffin tins with paper muffin liners. Place a wafer in the bottom of each of 12 muffin tins (or custard cups); set aside. (If the wafer doesn’t fit in bottom of muffin liners, break into pieces to cover bottom.)
  2. Place cheese in bowl of a food processor and process until loose. With food processor running, pour milk down feed tube.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, mix together sugar, gelatin and cocoa with a fork or spoon. Slowly add boiling water, mixing as you go; mix quickly until gelatin has completely dissolved.
  4. With food processor running, slowly add cocoa mixture through feed tube; process thoroughly, about 1 minute.
  5. Fill each muffin liner (or custard cup) with about 1/3 cup of cheese mixture. (Muffin tins will be filled up to the top; custard cups should be about 2/3 full.) Chill for a minimum of 2 hours. Yields 1 per serving.


These easy-to-make cheesecakes can be made a day in advance and stored in the refrigerator. If you’re a coffee lover, add a teaspoon of instant espresso to the cocoa mixture for an extra kick.
