Mini Mocha-Toffee Crunch Cheesecakes


  • 36 commercial pre-baked miniature phyllo dough shells*
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
  • 1 teaspoon hot water
  • 1 teaspoon Kahlua (coffee-flavored liqueur)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) block-style fat-free cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons toffee bits (such as Skor)

* Look for pre-baked miniature phyllo dough shells in your supermarket's freezer section or at Middle Eastern markets. (There are usually 15 shells in a package.)


  1. Place the phyllo shells in miniature muffin cups to prevent them from overbrowning.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Place 1 phyllo shell into each of 36 miniature muffin cups.
  4. Combine coffee granules, hot water, and Kahlua in a small bowl.
  5. Place coffee mixture, sugar, and the next 5 ingredients (sugar through egg) in a food processor; process until smooth.
  6. Spoon about 1 tablespoon cheese mixture into each shell; discard the remaining filling.
  7. Sprinkle cheesecakes evenly with toffee bits.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes or until set.
  9. Remove from pans, and cool on a wire rack.
