TOTAL TIME:
Prep: 1 hour + freezing Bake: 40 min. + freezing

Ingredients

  • 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 9 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate English toffee bits

Directions

Line the bottom of a 9-in. springform pan with parchment paper; coat paper and sides of pan with cooking spray. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, vanilla and salt until smooth. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Pour into prepared pan.
Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 325° for 40-45 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Cover and freeze overnight.
Remove from the freezer and let stand for 30 minutes or until easy to handle. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate with cream; stir until blended. Remove from the heat. Transfer to a large bowl; cover and refrigerate until mixture reaches spreading consistency, stirring occasionally.
In a small bowl, combine cracker crumbs and remaining sugar. Using a melon baller, scoop out 1-in. balls of cheesecake; place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Top each with a heaping teaspoonful of chocolate mixture. Sprinkle crumb mixture over half of the balls and toffee bits over the remaining balls. Cover and freeze for 2 hours or until firm. Yield: 5-1/2 dozen.

"Delicious, handy to have in freezer, but the melon baller step took forever and was very messy. Plan to try again with a 10X15 pan, and cut the cheesecake into small squares."
