These easy Chocolate Marble Mini Cheesecakes are the perfect treat to make for a crowd! Creamy and decadent, these cheesecakes start with a chocolate crust, creamy chocolate marble cheesecake filling, and are topped with decadent chocolate ganache.
Place cookies in a food processor and pulse until only fine crumbs remain. You will need to put the ENTIRE cookie in - don't remove the filling!
Drizzle in the melted butter and pulse several times until it is completely incorporated.
Press the crust into the bottom of each cup. I use about a heaping tablespoon of the mixture for each cup and then use the end of my ice cream scoop to really pack the crust in. Set aside.
Beat the cream cheese until nice and fluffy.
Add in the sugar, flour and vanilla and continue beating until well combined.
Beat in the eggs one at time making sure they are well incorporated.
Spoon half of the cream cheese mixture into the prepared cups. evenly dividing the mixture among the 12 cups.
Stir the melted chocolate into the remaining cream cheese mixture. Drizzle over the top of the batter. Run a knife through the batter to create swirls. You may end up with extra batter - that's okay! Make a couple extra cheesecakes if you have enough.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes until the cheesecakes are set. Turn the oven off and open the door.
Let the cheesecakes cool for 30 minutes before removing from the oven. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
Melt chocolate chips together with the heavy whipping cream in a small saucepan. Stir until smooth.
Spoon ganache over the top of the cooled cheesecakes. Refrigerate 30 minutes before serving.
Makes 12 cheesecakes. Store in refrigerator.
