Let's Make It
Chop 1 pkg. semi-sweet chocolate; place in medium bowl. Bring 1/2 cup cream, butter, corn syrup and water to boil in saucepan on medium heat, stirring frequently; pour over chopped chocolate. Stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended. Cool completely. Refrigerate 1 hour or until thickened.
Scoop chilled chocolate mixture into 18 balls, using about 2 tsp. chocolate mixture for each ball. Freeze 30 min. or until completely frozen. Meanwhile, melt remaining chocolate as directed on package; cool.
Heat oven to 325ºF. Combine sugar and cornstarch. Beat cream cheese in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add sugar mixture and remaining cream; beat until blended. Add melted chocolate and vanilla; mix well. Add whole eggs and yolk, 1 at a time, beating on low speed after each just until blended.
Place 1 cookie in each of 18 muffin pan cups sprayed with cooking spray; cover with cream cheese batter. Place 1 frozen chocolate ball in batter in each cup, pressing gently into batter until ball is completely covered with batter.
Bake 25 to 30 min. or until centers of cheesecakes are almost set. Cool 1 hour. Run knife around edges of cups to loosen cheescakes. Serve topped with raspberries.
These cheesecakes can be baked ahead of time. Cool cheesecakes but do not remove them from muffin pans. Refrigerate up to 2 days. When ready to serve, dip bottoms of filled muffin pans in warm water; let stand 1 min. (Do not allow water to come over tops of pans.) Run knife around edges of cups to loosen cheesecakes. Remove cheesecakes from pans. Place cheesecakes on microwaveable plate. Microwave on HIGH 20 to 30 sec. or just until cheesecakes are warmed. Serve topped with raspberries. Or for longer storage, wrap cooled cheesecakes individually and freeze up to 1 month. Thaw overnight in refrigerator, then warm in microwave just before serving.
