My mom is a perpetual recipe clipper – she has a collection of SOO many recipes from magazines and newspapers. Several years ago as a Christmas gift, I gave her a new recipe box and organized all of her recipes by mounting the clipped ones onto index cards. She has since informed me that she never attempted to keep up with this, so you can imagine the state of her recipes now – some 5 years later.

I was on the phone with my mom over Mother’s Day weekend while she was going through her recipes trying to decide on a dessert to take to my grandma’s. She read me the title “Chocolate Cheesecakes for Two,” and I immediately requested the recipe.

I whipped up a lighter version a few hours later. I love these! Not the same texture but definitely the flavor of chocolate cheesecake (which is one of my all-time favorite desserts). These are assembled in cupcake liners – an Oreo cookie crust, a no bake cheesecake filling, and topped with cocoa powder or Oreo crumbs. Super simple, but satisfies your dessert craving. If you love cheesecake but would never make a whole one just for yourself, this is a great, quick alternative!

Gluten Free Option

Use gluten free chocolate sandwich cookies for an entirely gluten free dessert!
