Ingredients

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 14 whole Chocolate graham cracker sheets crushed (or 1 box Chocolate Teddy-Grahams)
  • 2 tbsp. Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 cup butter melted

Filling:

  • 4 packages 8 ounces each cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 8 ounces white baking chocolate melted and cooled

Strawberry Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
  • 3 tbsp. strawberry jam

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of your food processor, combine cracker crumbs and cocoa powder and pulse into fine crumbs; drizzle in butter and pulse until combined. Add 1 tbsp. of crumb mixture to the bottoms of a lined muffin tin, press to pack lightly.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla until well blended. Add eggs and yolks; beat on low speed just until combined. Stir in white chocolate. Scoop over crust, cheesecake should come just shy of the top of the muffin liners.
  3. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until center is just set. I filled a small 8×8 baking dish half-way with water and set this below the cheesecakes as the cooked — this is an optional step.
  4. When cheesecakes are *almost* set in the middle, they will still have some wiggle to them, remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
  5. Carefully remove from the muffin pan and cool completely. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour, or overnight,
  6. For sauce, in a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and water until smooth. Add strawberries. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened. Add the jam and stir. Remove from the heat; and allow to cool.
  7. To serve: unwrap the cheesecake from the paper liner, top with strawberry sauce and eat! Refrigerate leftovers.
