The hidden cherry center in these Cherry Chocolate Cheesecakes will make everyone smile when they bite into these sweet little chocolate treats.
Hey, there cheesecake fans. Yeah, I'm talking to you. These Cherry Jubilee Chocolate Cheesecakes are going to blow your cheesecake lovin' minds.
You totally need to try these cherry filled cheesecake cupcakes sometime this holiday season.
I love how plain and chocolatey they look, but then one bite and you realize there is so much more to them!!!
A few weeks ago I had a few extra cans of pie filling that needed to be used. I kept thinking about what kind of pie I wanted to share with you. Each day I would suggest something different to my husband.
He finally stopped me and told me to just make cheesecake. He's right you know. The only time we use pie filling is usually when we are making cheesecake or Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Rolls.
The day he suggest this, my brain went crazy with all sorts of ideas. But I finally decided that since Christmas is so close, we needed to stick with something that said, "Hello, holidays" like these Cherry Cheesecake Brownies.
One of the things that I love about Christmas are those boxes of chocolate covered cherries that you can only buy this time of year. I know some people don't really like them, but I actually love those cheap little candies.
Those little chocolates inspired me to make these cute and delicious chocolate covered cherry cheesecakes.
How to make Cherry Jubilee Chocolate Cheesecakes
- Crush the Oreo cookies and mix them with melted butter. Spoon the mixture evenly into the bottom of 20 cupcake liners and press down firmly.
- Beat softened cream cheese and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs, yogurt, flour, and vanilla and mix.
- Melt the chocolate and let it cool slightly before adding it to the cheesecake mixture.
- Add the eggs and beat until just mixed in.
- Spoon the batter evenly into the cupcake liners.
- Place a small spoonful of cherry pie filling in each one and swirl gently. Bake and cool.
- Top the cooled cheesecake with chocolate ganache and let set.
Top the chocolate cherry cheesecakes with Cool Whip and a cherry candy right before serving. The hidden cherry center is always a fun thing for your taste testers to find.

Hooooooow did I not know that Andes made chocolate cherry candies? My husband loves those boxed chocolate covered cherries, AND he loves cheesecakes, so these would be a hit in my house. Yummo!
I am wondering if they are new this year because I don't remember seeing them before either. I found them at Target:-) Love that place!
Oh you tempt me!!
That is good to hear:-)
Averie @ Averie Cooks
Wow they are gorgeous and I know that cupcakes like this can be fussy and a pain - and you made them look so easy and like I'd like you to make me a dozen 🙂
Thank you so much Averie. That means so much to me coming from you:-) These cheesecake cupcakes are actually so easy to make up, but they do look pretty impressive.
Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel
Oh wow, Jocelyn, these cheesecakes look awesome! I love the surprise filling inside--and I LOVE chocolate and cherry.. such an underrated pairing! These are too cute:)
Aren't surprise fillings just the best? And I agree, cherry and chocolate is very underrated:-)

These are so pretty!!!!
Thank you Dorothy. I had so much fun with this photo shoot!!!
These look amazing! I am not a fan of cheesecake but the hubs got this awesome one at Emerils once had me try it and I loved it lol! I bet I will love this! He loves cheesecake! Our anni is Thursday I think I will make these for him! Cherry Jubilee mint thins yum! Where can you find these at? Thanks for sharing the recipe.
The good thing about these little ones is that there isn't a whole lot of cheesecake for those that don't like it that much. Of course I had to eat about 6 because I love the stuff:-) I found the Andes Cherry thins at Target!!! Happy early anniversary...I hope your hubby likes the cheesecakes!!!
I’ve never seen those, either! Wonder if they are on shelves at Valentine’s Day or if they no longer are offered.
Aimee @ ShugarySweets
