Dark Magic Cheesecake Bites & A Keurig Giveaway!

Posted Nov 17 2012 8:34am

Hi friends! Happy Saturday! I must REALLY love y’all (which I do) because I’m coming atcha with ANOTHER giveaway today! And this one, is pretty freakin’ rad too, I mean, one of you will walk one with a Keurig Special Edition ! But, before we get to that, I have to share an amazing recipe one of my sponsors, Barbara , created for Green Mountain Coffee ! I asked her to whip up whatever her heart desired, as long as it had Green Mountain Coffee in it. And guys, what she came up with BLEW ME AWAY! Check out these Dark Magic cheesecake bites!

But, I’ll let Barbara take it away and share her amazing creation with you!

Hi friends! I’m so happy to be guest posting here for the Realistic Nutritionist! Now, I love cheesecake and I would eat it much more often if it wasn’t so full of calories! I have discovered, however, that a whole slice is really more than I need to satisfy my craving for this decadent dessert. So I thought why not make a bite size version?… and one that you can eat with your hands!
Nothing goes better with cheesecake than a good cup of coffee so I combined the two together to make a rich mocha-flavored cheesecake bite. Green Mountain Coffee’s Dark Magic coffee works perfectly with this recipe because of its incredible depth & bold espresso flavor.
Try these crunchy creamy mocha-espresso bites with a Green Mountain Dark Magic latte & you will be in coffee heaven!

Yields 24 cheesecakes.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 – 15 minutes

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the Neufchâtel cheese with a hand mixer or stand mixer until light & fluffy. Continue beating, slowly incorporating the sugar into the cheese. Add the egg whites & beat on medium speed until blended.
  3. Combine the chocolate chips & milk together in a small bowl & microwave on 20% power for 1 minute. Stir until fully melted.
  4. Add the chocolate, Green Mountain Dark Magic Coffee, vanilla & salt to the cheese mixture. Beat on low speed 1-2 minutes until combined. Fold in sour cream.
  5. Spray a mini tart pan  or mini cupcake pan with an oil mister or cooking spray. Press a wonton wrapper into each round. Spritz the edges lightly with the spray/mister. Spoon 1 Tablespoon of the cheesecake mixture into each of the wonton rounds.
  6. Bake in preheated oven 15 minutes or until edges are golden brown & cheesecake looks slightly firm. Turn off the oven, crack open the door and let cool 20 minutes. Remove from oven & continue cooling on rack an additional 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle with the hazelnuts & confectioner’s sugar (if desired).
