Today I’ve decided to make a lovely cheesecake. Since I’m still trying to stick to my new years resolutions I tried to make the dessert small and light. I also looked at something that might look cute for valentines day, since I love pink so much.
I started off by making cute little chocolate cups to hold the cheesecake in. You can make these with chocolate and balloons. I recommend using 5 balloons for 2 serving because some of the cups will break when you remove the balloons so rather save than sorry.
INGREDIENTS ( 2 servings)
- 4-5 balloons
- 80 gram melting chocolate
- 4 Tablespoons cream cheese
- 4 Tablespoons whipped cream plus more for the garnish
- 2 Tablespoons icing sugar
- 1-2 drops red food coloring.
- 8 Strawberries.
- 2 Tablespoons Nutella
To make the cups
Melt the chocolate in a small bowl. Blow up the balloons to about the size of a tennis ball and dip the ends into the chocolate until about half of the balloons are covered. Place in the refrigerator until hard. Stick a needle in the balloons to blow them off and lightly pull them from the chocolate cups.
Scoop a tablespoon of Nutella in each cup.Strawberries into slices and layer on top of the Nutella
Mix the cream cheese, whipped cream, icing sugar and food colouring in a blender. Scoop equal parts of the mixture into the two cups on top of the sliced strawberries.
Squirt some whipped cream on top of the mixture and add strawberries on top. You could also add other fruits that you like. Chill for 30 minutes and serve.
