A Chocolate Recipe to Pass the Time

Ok so don't laugh but I was watching Dr Oz while I was resting last week and he had a food blogger on, you can see her blog here: Bran Appetit. Anyways this woman is my kind of cook. She rarely if at all uses an oven and makes food super fast. On the show they were making these greek yogurt cheesecake cups in chocolate that looked incredible. I decided to tackle this recipe this weekend and it did not disappoint!

But just as a disclaimer I naturally messed a part of the instructions up, I added all the chocolate to the base of the cupcake and as I was reading the part to drizzle some on top to make it like a peanut butter like cup, Nik was already licking the chocolate bowl so we had to make due.

Here is the recipe: Greek Yogurt Cheesecake Cups

1. So we have some simple ingredients: Chocolate Chips, cream cheese, powdered sugar, plain greek yogurt, and lemon (I used lemon zest instead of orange)

 2. First you want to take about a cup and a half of chocolate chips and melt in the microwave per instructions. (sorry about the blur, working with a new lens)

 3. Then you want to place the melted chocolate into the cupcake liners and move them up the edges, as you can see I put way too much in. whoops.

 4. While the chocolate cools in the fridge you want to mix together the powdered sugar and cream cheese

 5. Then add some lemon zest and plain greek yogurt and mix everything together.

 6. Once everything is mixed you want to dump a spoonful or so into each chocolate cup and then, as instructions say, place more chocolate on top. I ran out :)

7. let it sit in the fridge for a while then you are ready to eat them. Mine were really messy and too thick on the bottom. (I am such an awesome chef). but they did taste amazing and was so easy to make. enjoy!
