30 Days of Valentine’s Fun: Mini Valentine Cheesecakes

These look absolutely delicious!  I can’t wait to try them out.  I think I will use crushed Oreos for the crust instead of Nutella cookies, though.  I’m not a huge hazelnut fan.  Thanks to The Wicked Noodle for the recipe!

Here’s what you need to make these:

  • 1 cup crushed Nutella Cookies (view 3-ingredient recipe on thewickednoodle.com/nutella-cookies)
  • 2 T butter, melted
  • 2 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 12 raspberries, stuffed with chocolate chips (white or dark)
  • melted chocolate for  hearts and drizzling over cheesecakes (preferably different colors for contrast, but use whatever you’ve got)
  • sprinkles of your choice
