Mini Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes with Homemade Chocolate Ganache!

I made several variations of cheesecakes for Christmas and this was my ABSOLUTE favorite. It was AMAZING! It tasted like something I expect to get at a gourmet bakery. It's the best cheesecake I have ever had, low carb or not. Very, very LUSCIOUS!




Ingredients:

1 recipe for Adriana's Mini Cheesecakes
1/2 cup of your favorite sugar free chocolate chips. I used Sensato Sugar Free chocolate chips. You can also use a Green and Black's or Godiva's 85% chocolate bar chopped up.
1 recipe for Adriana's Homemade Chocolate Ganache

Directions:

1. Follow all the instructions for making my cheesecakes. Before pouring the mixture into the crusts, fold in the chocolate chips. Then bake as directed.
2. After the cheesecakes come out of the oven and are cooled, spoon the ganache on top and let it sit for 2 hours or until set. Refrigerate over night for best taste.

Recipe yields 12 cheesecakes, each with 2.36 Net carbs

The carb counts might differ slightly depending on the chocolate chips you choose to use.
