These are made with an easy cookie base and creamy baked filling and topped with melted dark chocolate and a few fresh raspberries.

Mini seems to be my theme this past week. First with the Mini Apple Pies and now these. These came as an inspiration in the wee hours of the morning. Some friends were coming over for a bite to eat and I didn’t think I had enough dessert. I love cheesecake, but just didn’t have time time to make a big Cheesecake.
Then I thought, “mini”. Well, if you are in desperate need of cheesecake but don’t what the whole shebang, these might be just up your alley. Super easy to make and can be put in the fridge until needed.

Tips For Making The milk Chocolate Topped Raspberry Cheesecake
- You can use any kind of biscuits of the base of this cheesecake. I used graham wafers but you could use vanilla or chocolate cookies crumbs. It’s up to personal preference.
- I used dark chocolate for the topping, but you can use milk or even white if you like to.
- Again, I used fresh raspberries, but any kind of berries would work for these little cheesecakes.
