I got this recipe from http://bakingbites.com/2011/08/chocolate-chip-mini-cheesecakes/#more-11078. I changed it up a little, doubled the recipe, stirred in my mini chocolate chips and use a mini muffin tin and got about 36 of these. I'm posted my doubled recipe, hubby already tried these and they are a big hit. I've found some great recipes from Baking bites so if you love to bake check out her site.
Graham cracker crust:
- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs ( I used honey ones, but you can also try them with the chocolate or plain ones)

- Preheat the oven to 350 and line muffin pan with cups of your choice
- Combine cracker crumbs, brown sugar and salt.
- Add butter and combine all ingredients completely.
- Add mixture to the bottom of each cup in the muffin pan and press down on mixture (I used my finger to make sure the mixture was pressed in well)
