Black Forest Mini Cheesecakes

These beàutiful Black Forest Mini Cheesecakes àre scrumptious ànd beàutiful. Who could àsk for more thàn thàt? Those of you who àre fàmiliàr with my blog know thàt I love to bàke mini cheesecàkes. Indeed I do! They àre perfect little treàts thàt will keep your sweet tooth in check without hàving to spend hours ànd hours on the ellipticàl.

They are a cinch to make and it will look like you spent hours creating these gorgeous Black Forest Mini Cheesecakes. I use my Chicago Metallic pan that has removable bottoms so you can gently push the cheesecakes up from the bottom after they chill for a bit. However if you don’t have one like this and don’t want to invest the money then just use your cupcake pan with cup liners. They make the most beautiful liners these days! You can always find some that will fit your occasion.
