Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites [Vegan]

Chocolate and cheesecake are natural besties, which makes the invention of chocolate covered cheesecake bites a no brainer. Creamy and rich on the inside, sweet and decadent on the outside and all without a bit of dairy. Plus, they come together so easily that the challenge is only eating one!

Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites [Vegan]

This Recipe is :



For the cheesecake:­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 2 Tbs. coconut oil
  • 2 Tbs. agave nectar
  • 1 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup non-dairy milk
  • A pinch of kosher salt

For the chocolate:­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

  • 4 oz. dark unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 Tbs. coconut oil
  • 1 Tbs. agave nectar (optional)


  1. Soak the cashews in boiling water for 30 minutes (or warm water for 3 hours). Drain and discard the water.
  2. In a food processor, add all the ingredients for the cheesecake and process until smooth. Taste for any necessary adjustments. Fill the 6 compartments of a silicone mold with the cheesecake. Freeze for several hours.
  3. In a small saucepan, add the chocolate and coconut oil (and agave, if desired). Melt over low heat while stirring. If the chocolate seizes, add a bit more coconut oil or milk. Transfer the chocolate to a bowl.
  4. Gently remove the cheesecake bites from the mold. Using a fork or two spoons (my desired method), cover the cheesecake bites in chocolate and put on a parchment-lined baking sheet or plate. Refrigerate for several hours until the chocolate sets. Keep refrigerated until ready to eat.






When Rhea became vegan, there were no places in her Bronx neighborhood to eat so she had to learn to cook, mostly by watching TV cooking shows, especially Christina Pirello and Rachael Ray.  That led to the creation of The "V" Word website which focuses on vegan versions of favorite, familiar foods. Rhea has written several e-cookbooks which are available on her web site. It is Rhea's hope that she can spread the "V" Word to bring more compassion into the world and it is her dream to become the vegan Rachael Ray.
