mini chocolate raspberry cheesecakes

As promised I am back with the recipe for these delicious little cheesecakes that we made as part of our
 "ch" meal.
These are grain free and low sugar
I found the original recipe online, but changed it to make it a refrigerator cheesecake and not a baked cheesecake, I also substituted some of the sugar substitutes for stuff that I had in my cupboard, they turned out beautifully and everyone loved them, I will definitely be making these again!
I am sorry but I can't find the original source to link to.

Mini Chocolate Cheesecakes with Raspberries
Makes 12 (1/3C muffin size)

Chocolate crust
2T butter melted
4T cocoa
1/4 C coconut sugar
1 beaten egg
1/2 C almond meal
1/2t baking powder
pinch salt

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until a stiff dough, if it is too wet add some more almond meal, too dry add some more butter.
Put liners in your muffin tin- the metal ones with the paper insert are best, and spray them with cooking spray- if you don't do this it will be near impossible to remove the liners.
Divide the dough and press it into the liners.
Poke base with a fork and bake in your oven at 160C for 15minutes then freeze for 10-20 minutes until cool.

250g cream cheese - I use homebrand from Woolies
1/4 cup glucose syrup/ or rice malt syrup
1t of stevia powder
1t vanilla extract

Mix some thawed frozen raspberries with a teaspoon of stevia powder  and place in the bottom of the muffin tins on top of the crust, top with your cream cheese filling.

Ganache topping
Melt together 100g of  70% or 85% chocolate with 100ml of cream let cool slightly and spoon on top of the cream cheese, freeze until firm about 1/2 hr then refrigerate until needed.

Enjoy this as a special occasion  treat!
