Chocolate Cheesecake Cookie Bites

Sharing is caring!

Hey y’all!!!  I am back with another awesome dessert perfect for Valentine’s Day.  I love making cookie cups and every time I make them they disappear in minutes.

Chocolate Cheesecake Cookie Bites

I usually make just a vanilla cheesecake filling but come on what’s Valentine’s without a little chocolate?

My favorite part of these little bites are how easy they are to make, you just start with a sugar cookie mix from the baking aisle and then whip up a super simple filling of cream cheese and pudding.  Of course they are just too cute which makes them even more irresistible!

When Valentine’s Day rolls around you have to make these for the sweeties in your life.  These are perfect for a little sweet treat for your kids, the perfect party bite or even just a decadent little dessert to share with your honey after a romantic dinner.

I just mix a little cocoa into a sugar cookie mix (the dry kind on the baking aisle), roll them into balls and pop them into your greased mini muffin tin.

When they come out of the oven I immediately make a center by pushing a little shot glass into the middle to make the well for all that yummy cheesecake filling.

Cookie Cups

That filling by the way is so luscious I could just eat it with a spoon, yum!!  Softened cream cheese is blended with chocolate pudding that I make using half the milk called for to produce a thick rich filling.

A few heart sprinkles and you are sure to put Cupid out of business!  If sprinkles aren’t your thing, feel free to top each one with a little slice of strawberry for a pop of color.
