How to prepare

Instructions

Line 24 mini muffin tins with paper liners.

Crust: Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Combine graham wafer crumbs, brown sugar and melted butter; divide evenly among paper liners. Press down with bottom of glass or measuring cup. Bake for about 5 minutes or until firm. Let cool.

Cheesecakes: Reduce oven temperature to 325°F (160°C). Using electric mixer, beat together cream cheese and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla; fold in sour cream.

Remove 12 pieces of chocolate; cut in half and set aside for garnish. In heatproof bowl set over saucepan of hot, not boiling water, melt remaining chocolate; let cool slightly. Fold into cream cheese mixture.

Divide mixture evenly among mini muffin cups. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until puffed. While still slightly warm, top with reserved chocolate.
