Strawberry Cheesecake Bites are Heavenly and Addictive

These heavenly little cheesecake bites are so good. Creamy, rich, strawberry studded cheesecake enrobed in deep, dark chocolate—is there anything more appealing?

You’ll be glad this recipe only makes six delicious bites because you won’t be able to stop eating them until they are gone. Of course, you can always double (or triple) the recipe but don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Strawberry Cheesecake Bites Covered in Chocolate

Just for fun, I made a batch of these cheesecake bites coated with dark chocolate, and another with white chocolate dressed up with glittery sprinkles. These would make a great Valentine’s day dessert, or a dessert for any romantic occasion or date night.

The Perfect Date Night Dessert

The recipe calls for using an ice cube tray to form the outer chocolate shell. I used a silicone ice cube tray, which made it super easy to remove the bites.

If you use a rigid ice cube tray, just be sure to use one with rounded corners or it will be difficult to get the bites out without breaking them.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

These pretty confections combine many fantastic desserts
into one sweet little hand-held package. A rich, strawberry-studded cheesecakecenter is encased in dark chocolate for a dessert that looks like it came from a fancy chocolate shop. This recipe is excerpted from my new cookbook, Dessert Cooking for Two.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Additional Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 5 ounces semisweet baking chocolate, chopped
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons whipped cream
  • 3 strawberries, diced

Instructions

    1. Make the chocolate cups. In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, microwave the chocolate in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until it is completely melted and smooth. Put a spoonful of the chocolate into each of 6 wells of an ice cube tray (or chocolate molds or foil mini cupcake liners) and then tilt and turn so that the chocolate coats the sides. Place in the freezer while you make the filling.

    2. Make the filling. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla and beat until smooth.  Add
    the cream and beat to incorporate. Fold in the strawberries.

    3. Assemble the bites. Fill each ice cube most of the way full with the
    filling. Spoon more chocolate on top to cover the filling. Freeze until set, about 20 minutes, or refrigerate for 1 hour.

    4. Serve. To serve, invert the ice cube tray onto a plate. Let the candies stand at room temperature for about 10 minutes before serving. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.



Notes

1. A silicone ice cube tray works the best because it makes it easy to get the bites out. If you are using a rigid ice cube tray, make sure it has rounded corners.

2. If your chocolate seems too thick to pour or to distribute around the mold in an even layer, stir 2 teaspoons of coconut oil into the melted chocolate. This will thin out the consistency but won't prevent it from solidifying.
