This is certainly not the first time I’ve made cheesecake in our Instant Pot. Did you think the Instant Pot was just for dinner??

The first cheesecake I made in my Instant Pot was this easy Mini Strawberry Cheesecake, a New York style topped with a delicious Strawberry compote. I was amazed at how easy it was and how perfectly cooked it was. Hmmm, I thought. What else could I try?!?

Of course chocolate things are always the goal for me, so I figured, why not try a chocolate cheesecake?!? I did some research and began experimenting. I gave it a go. It was good, but needed a few modifications, like more chocolate. After some testing that the kids thoroughly enjoyed tasting, I came up with this Mini Instant Pot Chocolate Cheesecake.

How to Make Instant Pot Chocolate Cheesecakes

OREO COOKIE BASE

  1. In a small bowl, mix melted butter with Oreo Baking Crumbs until it forms a consistency similar to wet sand. Spoon about 2 tsp (10 mL) of mixture into bottoms of five 125-mL Mason jars. Using fingers, press gently to create a crust.

CHEESECAKE MIXTURE

  1. In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, whisk together cream cheese, sugar (or sweetener), eggs, sour cream, vanilla and cocoa until smooth. Divide mixture evenly between jars, about 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (90 mL) in each jar. Leave room for cakes to rise when cooking.
  2. Gently tap jars on counter to eliminate air bubbles.
  3. Place metal trivet into inner chamber of pressure cooker. Add 2 cups (500 mL) water. Cover each jar loosely with aluminum foil to prevent condensation from lid dripping on to cakes. Carefully place jars on top of trivet.
