Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C). Line muffin cups with paper or foil muffin liners.
  2. Remove cookie top from each sandwich cookie; crush and set aside. Place cream-topped cookies in lined muffin cups, cream side up.
  3. Beat cream cheese, sugar, baking cocoa, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer in a large bowl until fluffy. Mix in eggs until blended. Fill prepared muffin cups 3/4 full; sprinkle 1/4 cup reserved cookie crumbs over top. Discard remaining crumbs or save for another use.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until set, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely; cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  5. Top each cheesecake with 2 tablespoons pie filling and a dollop of whipped topping just before serving.

This recipe is quick and easy, but the chocolate cheesecake is divine. I also use the chocolate filling for making marble cheesecake, and have also put the sandwich cookies in a regular springform pan, added mini chocolate cookies to the filling, and baked! I love this recipe!

I'm giving 5 stars for the cheesecake part. The recipe is spot on and the cheesecake is so delicious - almost tastes like creamy fudge. To reduce carbs, I eliminate the crust part. I also usually just add whipped cream and fresh berries (whatever berry I have on hand) to keep it light and low carb.

These were quick, easy and yummy! I think next time I will just crush the cookies, reserve 1/4 for the topping, and just put some in the bottom of the paper liners. We had some friends over for dinner, and everyone loved these. Will make again.

This was so great. I added some instant coffee for an espresso variety.

When I got home from the store, I realized that I had only bought one package of cream cheese. So, I added a container of low-fat vanilla yogurt instead of a second package of cream cheese. I also cut the sugar to 1/2 cup. I didn't have paper liners on hand, so I just sprayed the muffin pan with nonstick spray and they came out fine. The final product turned out GREAT! I made these for my husband's birthday, and we all loved them.

Just made these Labor Day weekend. They were a huge hit. Would provide a pic, but (sorry) they're all gone. Super easy, will definitely make them again.

Hubby loves cheesecake, so I made these for his birthday dinner. I doubled the recipe and I got 30 cupcakes out of it.Instead of the canned filling I used fresh sliced strawberries( hubby's favorite). This was by far the easiest cheesecake-type recipe that I have come across and would recommend this for anyone looking for an easy cheesecake-type dessert. I will definitely be making these again, and maybe try with half the cocoa for the next double batch to make marble cupcakes .
