I made this dessert when I wanted to make something small and sweet for dessert. All I had in the house was cream cheese and chocolate chips, and thus the Shot Glass Cream Cheese Dessert was born. It is so simple and can be whipped up in an instant. You can substitute crushed graham crackers instead of mini chocolate chips if you'd like more of a crust.

I love shot glass desserts! I often order them in restaurants so I was happy to try this one! I tweaked it to become an 'Almond Joy' flavored dessert because I'm on an 'Almond Joy' candy bar kick lately! I only made 2 servings. I lightened up the cheese by using 1/2 cream cheese(fat free) and 1/2 ricotta cheese. I also added a few drops of almond and coconut extracts to get that 'Almond Joy' flavor. I also topped it with sweetened shredded coconut and chocolate chips. This was soooo good that I wished it was larger than a shot glass! YUM! Read More

This seemed ideal for a small sweet dessert. Since I was out of chocolate chips. I substituted Heath Bar chips and drizzled chocolate on top. Like the idea of using low fat cream cheese - this has a lot of possibilities depending on the contents of my cupboard. (We live miles from the nearest store so don't make trips for one item!)

This was very good and easy to make. I did modify it by adding 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract reducing the sugar to 1/2 cup and omitting the chips on the bottom. I also used less chocolate chips and just folded them into the cream cheese mixture instead of layering and drizzled chocolate syrup and whipped cream on top when served. Next time I'll make it the same way but use mini chocolate chips. Read More

Finally a way to use up the leftover cream cheese! I had half a block (4 oz.) that needed to be used. Scrounging in the pantry yielded a bag of about 30 chocolate chips. To this imagining a cheesecake I added 1/8 teaspoon of raspberry extract and 2 tablespoons of sugar. You can hardly go wrong with cream cheese chocolate and sugar. Read More
