Brownie Cheesecake Tarts

My cute friend Jess over at brought these little bites of deliciousness to a get together and they were a quick "must have that recipe" in my book. We made them last week and they were a big hit! They look fancy and feminine and would be the perfect addition to your Valentine's celebrations. (The strawberries look like hearts!)
To-Die-For Brownie Cheesecake Tarts

1/4 cup light corn syrup
50 Nilla wafers rolled into crumbs
1 package cream cheese, softened (either leave at room temperature for a few hours, or put in microwave for about 15 seconds)
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 pint strawberries
1/2 cup powdered sugar

1. On medium heat melt butter, corn syrup and chocolate chips until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and stir in wafer crumbs. While still warm divide evenly among mini muffin cups. Press with tart shaper (if you don't have a tart shaper, press with the end of a French rolling pin or citris reemer, or something that has a 1" flat circular end).
2. Chill for 15 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside to chill more.
3. Beat together softened cream cheese and powdered sugar. Fill each tart with mixture (pipe it in to make it look really nice).

4. Slice strawberries with an egg slicer and place slices on each tart.


  1. Took this to a church party and they were a hit! So yummy!

  2. Thanks, Mauri! Will have to try those oreo stuffed cookies for sure! :) ps...if this shows up as a "reply" rather than a "comment" I apologize, I was having a problem simply commenting...
