  4. 1 teaspoon corn syrup or honey
  5. Filling
  6. 2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
  7. 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  8. 2 teaspoons vanilla
  9. 2 tablespoons red food color
  10. 2 eggs

  1. 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 18 regular-size muffin cups.
  2. 2 In small bowl, mix Crust ingredients. Divide crumb mixture among cups. Using fingertips, firmly press in bottom of each cup, making sure crumbs are firmly packed.
  3. 3 In large bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Gradually beat in granulated sugar until fluffy. Beat in vanilla and food color. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until well blended. Add cocoa and Bisquick mix, and beat until there are no more streaks and batter looks chocolaty. Pour in milk, and beat until smooth and creamy.
  4. 4 Divide batter evenly among cups (cups will be almost full).
  5. 5 Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until centers are firm. Cool 15 minutes (cheesecake centers will sink while cooling). Refrigerate in pan at least 45 minutes.
  6. 6 In chilled small bowl, beat whipping cream on medium speed 30 seconds; gradually increase speed to high, and beat until stiff peaks form. During last minute, beat in powdered sugar.
  7. 7 Remove cheesecakes from refrigerator and, using butter knife, gently pop them out of pan. Carefully remove wrappers, and top each chilled cheesecake with large dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of chocolate shavings. Serve chilled.
