Mini Triple Chocolate Cheesecakes

Cheesecake is one of our absolute favorites around here.
I was going to wait until the new year to post this recipe,
but seriously…have you looked at these???
chocolate cheesecakes
They might be small in size,
but they are mighty in taste.
Or was that mighty tasty?
Either way, I couldn’t wait to share them with you.
They are made with three layers of chocolate…
making them kind of irresistible!!!
Ok, totally irresistible!
I might have consumed more than a person on a diet should have…
but hey, it is still the holidays.
My real diet will start next week. (fingers crossed)

Mini sized cheesecakes are just the right size
for any party that you might be attending.
You could totally serve these up at a New Year’s Eve bash…
and then be home in bed by 11.
Everyone will be so enamored by your cheesecakes,
they won’t even notice you leaving early.
Yup, I’m an old fart who really doesn’t care
about the ball dropping anymore.
I value chocolate induced sleep more.
I have you hooked now, don’t I?
You just can’t resist these mini sized chocolate bombs.
Go ahead and eat a couple of these…
I certainly won’t judge you.
So, let’s party like rockstars
hopped up on chocolate…
at least until 10…
then I have to go home.

    Thanks for stopping by my site (www.potholesandpantyhose.com) and commenting on my Cedar Xmas Garland! I replied to your question on what was behind the garland-you asked if it was cracked glass. It’s actually a broken mirror and here’s the link on how to make one for yourself, if you are interested!:

    I am definitely going to try this recipe for mini chocolate cakes. My Bicep’s likes anything with chocolate! This will be right up his alley. Thanks again for stopping by!
    peace out.

    Oh my. You may finally be the person who gets me to exercise regularly because I cannot keep coming here and not do it. The consequences are just too scary to think about! YUM! Happy New Year my friend. Can’t wait to see what you are up to in 2012.
