Black-Eyed Susan Cheesecakes

  • 24 vanilla wafer cookies
2 packages (8 ounces, each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips

Beat cream cheese and sugar on medium speed of mixer in large bowl. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Stir in peanut butter chips. Spoon heaping tablespoon cream cheese mixture into each muffin cup.

Bake 15 minutes or just until set, but not browned. Cool.

Place chocolate chips and butter in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM 30 seconds; stir. If necessary, microwave at MEDIUM an additional 10 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred.
Drop about 1 teaspoon of chocolate mixture onto center of each cheesecake, letting white show around edge. Place almond slices around chocolate mixture to resemble petals. Cover; refrigerate. Cover; refrigerate leftover cheesecakes.
