The week of Valentine's Day is always a busy week for me as a chef. I wanted to get a head start on a special Valentine's treat for my family this week since the next couple of weeks are going to be pretty hectic. I had to make a chocolate chip cheesecake to serve at a party this week anyway so I decided to make some mini cheesecakes for my family at the same time. I can store the mini cheesecakes in my freezer until Valentine's Day.
After searching through all sorts of gourmet kitchen stores, I ended up ordering my mini springform pans from an internet website. The very next week I found them in the cooking isle at Walmart. :) If you're interested in making mini cheesecakes - check your local Walmart store for mini springform pans.
Chocolate Chip Cheesecake
1 cup oreo cookie crumbs 2 cups sour cream
2 Tablespoons butter, melted 3 eggs
16 ounces cream cheese 1 Tablespoon vanilla
1 cup sugar 1 ½ cups chocolate chips
Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips. Pour into crust and sprinkle with remaining chips.
I like to top my cheesecakes with a sweet and creamy topping. I combine 1 cup of sour cream and 1/4 cup of sugar to make the topping. Spread the topping on the cheesecake and serve with chocolate chips...
or fresh fruit.
