  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • pinch of Salt
  • 2 ounces Milk Chocolate, grated
Optional Garnishes:
  • Whipped Cream
  • Grated Chocolate

Directions

For the Base:

  1. Place your graham crumbs in a small mixing bowl. Add the sugar if desired. Mix well.
  2. In another small bowl melt your butter, then pour it over the graham crumb mix. Stir with a fork until well combined.
  3. Set the bowl aside until ready to assemble the cheesecakes.

For the Cherry Chip Filling:

  1. In a stand mixer whip the heavy cream until it's fluffy. Set the bowl aside.
  2. Now in another bowl mix the cream cheese until it's smooth as silk. Add the powdered sugar and mix again till smooth. Add the cherries, cherry liquid, almond extract and a dash of salt. Mix again until combined.
  3. Now slowly fold the whipping cream you made from the heavy cream into the cream cheese mixture. Keep on folding in until it's combined perfectly.
  4. Set this bowl aside, or if you like being fancy you can transfer the mixture to a piping bag and place in the fridge until you're ready to layer the dessert.

For the Chocolate Chip Filling:

  1. In a stand mixer whip the heavy cream until it's fluffy. Set the bowl aside.
  2. In a double bowler melt the chocolate until it's smooth. If you are unsure how to do that all you do is place a heat proof bowl over top of a saucepan with water, but don't let the bottom of the bowl touch the water. Heat the pan over medium heat. Keep the bowl of chocolate over the hot water until you need it so the chocolate stays smooth and melted.
  3. Now in another bowl mix the cream cheese until it's smooth as silk. Add the powdered sugar and mix again till smooth. Now you can add the melted chocolate, vanilla and dash of salt to the cream cheese mix. Mix until well combined.
  4. Now slowly fold the whipping cream you made from the heavy cream into the cream cheese mixture. Keep on folding in until it's combined perfectly. Now you can add the grated pieces of chocolate. Fold in briefly. You want the pieces to say intact and not blend too well.
  5. Set this bowl aside, or if you like being fancy you can transfer the mixture to a piping bag and place in the fridge until you're ready to layer the dessert.

Putting it all together:

  1. Put about a teaspoon of graham crumbs in each serving glass. You can tamp it down with the blunt end of a knife, or if you have a honey dipper they work super well for pressing down graham crumbs in small dishes. Keep at it until all the glasses are filled about 1/3 of the way.
  2. Now pipe, or spoon in the chocolate chip filling, you want to fill each glass so it's 2/3 of the way up the sides.
  3. Now pipe, or spoon in the cherry chip filling so it fills each glass.
  4. You can garnish with whipped cream, grated chocolate and maraschino cherries.
  5. Serve with a big old cherry and chocolate loving smile!
