Who could resist chocolate and strawberries? Try dipping half of the cookie into the glaze like a chocolate strawberry.

This recipe can be easily modified for other flavored cake mixes. Imagine replacing the strawberry cake mix with red velvet, caramel, banana supreme, orangesicle or any of your favorite cake mixes.

I’m thinking about trying a spice cake mix next with white chocolate glaze. What do you think?

This recipe is almost identical to Cherry Cordial Cookies with only a slight variation in the glaze. I liked cherry so much I decided to try strawberry!

Cherry chocolate cookies! These easy cookies taste a lot like chocolate cherry cordials especially when they’re warm. I had to stop myself from eating them all before I could even glaze them.

You could try dipping half of the cookie into the glaze for a different look. Even if you slop the glaze around like I did, they end up looking artistic. I’m not adept at doing fancy things with glazes or icings, but I was pleased with the way they turned out.

Mine didn’t turn out as pretty as I would have liked, but they were yummy!

These Mini Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes are wonderful to take to cool or winter month events and holidays. I’ve even left the chocolate out of the cream cheese mixture and used food coloring to make them red and green for Christmas. So, they were more like red and green mini cheesecakes with chocolate chips on top.

Cook Time

Ingredients
  1. 1 1/3 cups graham cracker crumbs
  2. 1/3 cup sugar
  3. 1/4 cup cocoa
  4. 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
  5. 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips, divided
  6. 3 8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
  7. 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  8. 3 eggs
  9. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Spray with cooking spray or paper-line 24-30 muffin cups.
  3. Stir graham cracker crumbs, sugar, cocoa and butter. Press in bottom of cups, using all of the mixture equally.
  4. Over low heat melt 1 cup of the chocolate chips.
  5. In large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually add sweetened condensed milk and melted chocolate chips until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
  6. Spoon batter into cups and top with remaining chips.
  7. Bake 20 minutes or until set. Cool, then refrigerate.
Notes
  1. To make mini cheesecakes with chocolate chips on top instead of chocolate cheesecakes, omit the chocolate in step 5.
  2. If you use cooking spray instead of the paper cups, let cool then freeze for 10-15 minutes. They should be easier to remove.
