Skip the rum balls this season and opt for these two-bite cheesecakes with a drizzle of rum-infused ganache. It’s boozy bliss without the alcohol (but you can always swap 12 tbsp of rum for the extract). Not a fan of rum? Try orange or peppermint extract instead.

1 brick (8 oz/250 g)
cream cheese, room temperature
2
eggs
12 cup
plain 2% Greek yogurt
12 cup
graham cracker crumbs
1 tbsp
melted butter
14 cup
semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp
heavy cream
14 tsp
