Mocha Chocolate Cheesecake Squares Recipe Video

Ok, now on to the good stuff! These little squares pack a big punch of coffee flavour! They are rich and more-ish, as my mum would say. I ran out of chocolate-covered coffee beans, which are supposed to be on top of each square, but I don't think we missed them. If you like the taste of mocha and enjoy cheese-cake, I think you'd give these delicate squares a thumbs-up.
