A simple but enjoyable meal followed by a sweet dessert will warm everyone's heart. This dessert, inspired by the red velvet cake, will melt everyone's heart. Yes, even cold hearts can melt with this one. It is a mini soft set cheesecake in a cup with a melting red velvet heart center. It is a breeze to make so will have you pleased, too.
This recipe makes 12 cheesecake cups. Ramekins or muffin cups can also be used instead of the glass cups.
Ingredients for the crumb crust:
1 c. digestive biscuit or graham cracker crumbs
5 tsps. light brown sugar
2 tbsp. melted butter
Mix everything together. Put 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mixture in each cup. Press lightly so it doesn't set solid. It has to remain crumbly so it can be scooped up easily with a spoon.
Ingredients for the red velvet heart:
1/2 c. milk
2 tbsps. condensed milk
50 gms. white chocolate, chopped
1 tbsp. melted butter
1 1/2 tsp. red food colouring
Unmold the hearts onto lined baking tray and re-freeze until ready to use.
Ingredients for the cheesecake:
1 c. cream cheese
300 mls. whipping cream
1/2 c. white sugar
Whisk the cream and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the cream cheese and whisk again until combined. Spoon into a piping bag. Pipe into the crumb base lined cups. Level the tops with a spatula. Press a frozen heart in the center, making sure that it is fully set in so that it doesn't flow out of the heart shaped indentation when melted. The heart melts in a few minutes. It is then ready to serve.
