Santa Hat Cheesecake Bites

I was asked to bring the dessert to our annual Christmas party that my friend holds at her house every year. I tried to come up with something that the kiddos and adults as well would like! I found this recipe online that used these Chocolate Desert Cups…they looked scrumptious but knew I would not find them anywhere locally and had no time to order them online. Put this recipe in the back of my mind and set out to do some grocery shopping to see what I could come up with. Well, low and behold right there in the baking aisle at Wal-Mart there the chocolate dessert cups sat…awesome! Now I can make these super cute Santa Hats!

 Here are the Chocolate Dessert Cups I used…found in the baking aisle at Wal-Mart.

So easy my 6 year old piped in the cheesecake filling in all the cups!!
