Chocolate Cheesecake Bites #SundaySupper

I want to say a BIG welcome to all you #SundaySupper readers! I am excited to be a part of this amazing group of bloggers! This weeks theme is Cheesecake! As my husband would say: "BUMMER!". We are huge Cheesecake lovers. I love to make it every which way I can. One of my most popular blog posts ever is my Caramel Cheesecake bites. You can view the recipe HERE. Since it was so popular, I figured I would make a bunch of different cheesecake bites in the months to come. My husband wishes I would make a new set each day, but our waistlines cannot handle that, so it is a once in a while special treat. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!!!

Gluten-Free Chocolate Cheesecake Bites
Makes 6 Cheesecake bites
8 ounces cream cheese
2 eggs
1/8 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

Chocolate Topping:
8 ounces good dark chocolate
2 ounces heavy whipping cream

1/2 cup almond meal flour
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup sugar in the raw
1/8 teaspoon fine Sea Salt
1/8 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/8 cup melted butter

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Crush your slivered almonds.
In a mixing bowl whisk together the almond flour, almonds, baking soda, and salt. Add the butter and combine with a spoon.

Line a muffin tin with liners. Push the almond mixture into the bottom of the liners.
Bake for 10 minutes to set. Set aside.
Turn oven down to 300°.
In a mixing bowl, add cream cheese, vanilla, sugar and eggs. 
Beat until light and fluffy.
Spoon mixture into the muffin tins with prepared almond crust.

Bake for 40 minutes.

Take cheesecakes out of the oven when they are done. Once cool, the middle will slightly fall and this is the perfect indent for the chocolate.
Melt chocolate and whipping cream in your microwave for 3 minutes at 50% power. Take out and stir until smooth.
Spoon about 1 tablespoon chocolate over each cheesecake. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

  1. Congratulations for joining Sunday Suppers. I need to do more joining. Now... pass me about half a dozen of these little bites. Amazing idea. :)

  2. I love your recipe! I love your crust!! I didn't know you were part of the Sunday Supper! So cool!!

  3. These look fantastic! Welcome to #SundaySupper! :)

    These are delicious and stunning as bites! Even better with a gf crust.

  5. We are so excited to have you be part of our group! What a beautiful recipe to share for #SundaySupper !

  6. Mmmm...yum! These would disappear in the blink of an eye in our house.

  7. Those look so dangerously tempting! YUM!!!

  8. Ooh, these looks excellent!!! I've made mini cheesecakes many times, but topping them with ganache is a fantastic idea!

  9. Oh wow that crust sounds amazing. I don't need to eat gluten-free but I am totally tempted to give this a try as is.

  10. These look really good! I have in-laws that are gluten free! I will have to make these for them! Thank you for sharing!

  11. I love that gluten free crust! And seriously, my mouth dropped open at the gorgeousness of the first photo, the one with the big bite taken out of it :) That dollop of ganache on top just takes these over the edge. Fabulous!

  12. I wish I was the one taking that bite, mind you the whole thing would be gone then. YUM!!!

  13. If you had not said gluten free I would have never known. The almonds and almond flour must give the crust a wonderful flavor. Then that big dollup of chocolate on the top = heavenly little cheesecakes. Great recipe!

  14. Gorgeous!!I would easily finish off more than a few of these :)

  15. ooo how pretty!! I love these! They would be perfect for a party!

  16. Welcome! Love these little cheesecake bites. I'll take 5!


Thank you! I love comments!
