  • 2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (14 ounce) can chocolate-flavored sweetened condensed milk
  • 2eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon peppermint extract
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons crushed peppermint candies
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line 18 muffin cups with foil baking cups.


  • Step 2

    Combine chocolate wafer crumbs and butter in a medium bowl; divide mixture evenly among the prepared muffin cups, pressing firmly to form crusts.

  • Step 3

    Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 6 minutes. Let cool completely, about 30 minutes. Keep oven on.

  • Step 4

    Beat cream cheese in a bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Beat in sweetened condensed milk, eggs, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract into a smooth filling. Divide filling evenly over the cooled crusts.

  • Step 5

    Bake in the preheated oven until filling is set, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Remove foil baking cups gently.

  • Step 6

    Melt chocolate chips in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 15-second intervals, stirring after each melting, 1 to 3 minutes. Drizzle melted chocolate over cheesecake bites and sprinkle with peppermint candies. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
