Chocolate Coated Cheesecake Bites

Chocolate Coated Cheesecake Bites

Cheesecake is one of our favorite desserts, any which way you can think of serving them and I have never had a flavor I did not like. These Chocolate Coated Cheesecake Bites are fun to make and of course even more fun to eat.


At first I did not want to do a post which included the above photo - it was taken with my old camera and while I still don't, or ever will, claim to be a photographer {never mind a good one} my pics have definitely improved since I started using the new camera.

I have been so busy exploring other recipes and making up my own, that I totally forgot just how delicious these little bites are. 

In the pic, I left the front cheesecake bite uncovered, to show the little piece of crust hiding in there as well. I also made cheesecake pieces without the crust - the piece on the right, which is split in half.

Either way, with or without the crust inside - AWESOME !

Chocolate Coated Cheesecake Bites

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup Tennis Biscuit crumbs    (See more about Tennis biscuits in this post of mine)
1/4 cup Unsalted Butter, melted

2 x 250g (8oz each) Cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Sour Cream
1 t Vanilla
2 Extra-Large Eggs

750g (24oz) Semi-Sweet Chocolate, chopped

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat oven to 160 deg C (325 deg F) - Line a 20 x 20cm (8 inch) oven dish with baking paper. Cut the paper large enough to form an overhang (easier to remove later).
2.) Mix the Tennis biscuit crumbs and the Melted Butter. Press into the bottom of the prepared oven dish.
3.) Beat the Cream Cheese until smooth in a large mixing bowl. Add the Sugar, Sour Cream, Vanilla and Eggs - beat until very smooth. Pour filling into crust.
4.) Bake 45 - 60 minutes until the edges are set. The center will be soft but will set whilst cooling.
5.) Remove from oven and cool approximately 30 minutes before transferring it to the refrigerator, cool until fully chilled, about 1 1/2 hours. Once chilled, move to the freezer compartment for 2 hours until firm.
6.) Remove Cheesecake from paper and cut into bite-sized pieces (I got 36 pieces).
7.) Melt the Semi-sweet Chocolate until smooth (Do this in three batches-as needed). Cool for a minute or two.
8.) Using a dessert spoon dip and gently roll each piece of Cheesecake in the melted Chocolate till it's covered on all sides. Place dipped pieces on a sheet of wax-paper until set. This can take from 5 to 15 minutes.

Store all leftover Bites in a sealed container in the fridge.

  3. Chocolate and cheesecake. My first and second love... okay maybe strawberries and chocolate are squeezed in there somewhere and maybe peanut butter and chocolate. Okay, maybe there is one constant factor here.... Have a good day!

  11. Linda,
    These are right up my alley! They look amazing! I can't wait to try this recipe (when I get back from vacation) Could you take a picture of the Tennis biscuits and put them on the blog so we can see what they look like? They might be the very same thing as graham crackers.
    Thanks for sharing at Creative Thursday :) Have a great weekend.

  12. Everything you use tennis biscuits in, we would use graham crackers, so I assume they are quite similar, other than the coconut flavor. We make a pudding dessert, where we layer instant pudding alternating with graham crackers and after setting in the frig for a bit, the graham crackers get quite soft and have a cake like texture. This cheesecake sounds divine, and I love your photo with those pieces of toasted coconut, yum!
