I love making snack sized treats.

I can eat more than one and not feel guilty.

No plate (evidence) to clean when I sneak into the kitchen to have just one more.

They travel well if taking to the office or a friends.

Did I mention I can eat more than one and not feel guilty?  These would make a nice presentation for a shower or afternoon party.

Petit Mocha Cheesecakes


  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 1 teaspoon hot water
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream


  1. Line mini muffin tins or mini tart pans with paper liners.
  2. Combine graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar, add melted butter and stir until all crumbs are moist.
  3. Place about a teaspoon of crumb mixture into each paper liner. And press down to form a bottom crust. An easy trick to do this is with a shot glass. Just press down with bottom of shot glass (that fits in muffin tin) and give a quick twist and remove.
  4. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy, add eggs, vanilla, sugar and vanilla, beating until smooth. Add flour and cocoa (I sift mine) and gently blend in.
  5. Combine instant coffee and hot water and add to mixture.
  6. Spoon cream cheese mixture into muffin tins, approximately 1 tablespoon per cup.
  7. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15-18 minutes, until just set. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  8. To make the glaze, combine chocolate chips and whipping cream in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat until chips are melted and smooth. Drizzle over cheesecakes.

  1. That is exactly why I make small treats…I can eat more without the guilt:-) These look amazing by the way:-)

  2. Joan…these little mocha treats looks rich and scrumptious! I love mini desserts because I like to have a whole dessert just for myself…no matter how small it is! And you are so funny! But I can justify away any guilt I would feel about having more than one! How could I resist? Great tip with the shot glasses and one that I will definitely use in the future! : )
