Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bites from Bake or Break

Two things I firmly believe: 1. Chocolate chips make most everything better. 2. Mini desserts are always irresistible. Put those two together, and you know these Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bites are sure to be a winner!

These mini chocolate chip cheesecakes have everything you love about cheesecake in a simpler, two-bite package. If you’re a bit nervous about baking a regular-size cheesecake, then these little versions are a great place to start. Plus, they’re just adorable, aren’t they?

Mini chocolate chip cheesecake recipe

Mini chocolate chips are ideal for these little cheesecakes. You can use regular chocolate chips, but you’ll only get a few per cheesecake. If you can’t get mini chocolate chips, then I’d recommend chopping the regular chocolate chips before adding them to the batter for better chocolate chip distribution.

I made the crust for these cheesecakes with graham cracker crumbs. You can, of course, use another cookie crumb for the crust if you prefer. Chocolate graham crackers, Oreos, vanilla wafers, or your favorite crunchy cookie would work, too.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes topped with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles

These little cheesecakes don’t necessarily need a topping, but I can’t resist a little dollop of sweetened whipped cream and some chocolate sprinkles. They not only make them just a bit more aesthetically pleasing, but the whipped cream is a nice flavor and texture addition. And sprinkles because, well, sprinkles!

If you need some mini sweet treats for a party, a special occasion, or just because, give these Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bites a try. I hope you’ll love them as much as I do!
