Recipe Details


Our resident dessert whiz, Chef Michelle, is obsessed with anything mocha flavored, and any variety of cheesecake. So, she combined the two in this insanely delicious no-bake version featuring graham cracker crusts, mascarpone cheese, espresso powder, and two types of chocolate. Did we mention they’re individual cheesecakes? Now you really don’t have to share!
