How to make Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes are so easy to make! First, start by crushing your graham crackers in a food processor or in a plastic bag. 

Combine melted butter, sugar, and crushed graham crackers. Once combined, press mixture into the bottom of a muffin tin that has been lined with cupcake liners. 

Bake crusts for 5 minutes and then remove from the oven to cool. 

For the cream cheese, follow the directions below and combine accordingly. Don’t forget to use a mixer on low speed or your hand. 

Add eggs one at a time and beat at a low speed. 

Fold in chocolate chips. I used mini chocolate chips in this recipe as well as pretty much any dessert that calls for chocolate chips. I like the texture of the mini chips.

Bake cheesecakes until the center is slightly jiggly and then turn off the oven and open the oven door to begin the cooling process.

Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack. After about 45 minutes, or until cooled completely, and then place in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours to set completely. 

Can I add Oreos to my cheesecake instead of chocolate chips?

Yes! Absolutely! Just substitute the chocolate chips for crushed Oreos! You will have another amazing go-to dessert recipe!

How do you know when mini cheesecakes are done?

You can check to see if your cheesecake is done by slightly shaking the cheesecakes to see if they jiggle in the middle. You want the middle circle to jiggle a little but the outside portion to be firm. Remove from oven and the center will continue to bake while cooling. 

Why did my mini cheesecakes sink?

Your cheesecakes could sink because the batter was over mixed or whipped. To prevent this, use a fork to mix cheesecake instead of a hand mixer. Also, pay attention to how you add your eggs to be batter. Be sure to add one at a time and mix or beat on a low speed to decrease the amount of air in your batter. 

What happens if you over mix cheesecake?

If you over mix your cheesecake or mix it at too high of a speed, your cheesecake could crack on the top. This is easy to cover up with ganache or toppings and does not change the taste of your cheesecake. 

Finally, I’d love to hear how your Mini Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes turn out! This is quickly becoming one of my favorite deserts to make for a crowd!
