Chocolate Cheesecakes for Two

I was on the phone with my mom over Mother's Day weekend while she was going through her recipes trying to decide on a dessert to take to my grandma's. My mom is a perpetual recipe clipper - she has a collection of SOO many recipes from magazines and newspapers. Several years ago as a Christmas gift, I gave her a new recipe box and organized all of her recipes by mounting the clipped ones onto index cards. My mom has informed me that she never attempted to keep up with this, so you can imagine the state of her recipes now - some 5 years later. Anyway, she read me the title "Chocolate Cheesecakes for Two," and I immediately requested the recipe. I whipped up a lighter version a few hours later. I love these! Not the same texture but definitely the flavor of chocolate cheesecake (which is one of my all-time favorite desserts). If you love cheesecake but would never make a whole one just for yourself, this is a great, quick alternative!

Chocolate Cheesecake for Two

2 ounces light cream cheese (1/4 pkg)
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 ounce (1 square) Baker's semi-sweet chocolate, melted
1/2 cup light cool-whip, thawed
2 Oreo cookies or Oreo crumbs
cocoa powder for decoration, optional

1. Place two paper muffin liners in a muffin pan. Insert one Oreo cookie in the bottom of each cup, or evenly sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of Oreo crumbs in the bottom.

2. Beat cream cheese, sugar, and melted chocolate in a medium bowl with a wire whisk until blended. Add whipped topping and mix well.

3. Fill muffin liners evenly with cream cheese mixture. Top with Oreo crumbs or cocoa powder, if desired. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
