Gorgeous little cheesecakes, but I used paper cups, so they were a little, um, distorted looking? So no pics from me unfortunately. I will use foil cups next time for better stability. The taste , however, was out-of-this world. The best of both worlds, vanilla and chocolate. MMMMMMMMMMM!! Very simple and quick. I really had to struggle to wait the two hours cooling time to sample one on these little yummy gems. Thanks for sharing these, I will make them again soon and try to take a pretty photo!!
