Chocolate Cherry Cheese Tarts

These pretty little tarts are reminiscent of chocolate covered cherries...only the chocolate is inside the cheesecake! Sometimes, I make them even smaller, in those tiny little tart pans with just one cherry on top. But, hey...it's Valentine's Day, and these are just the perfect size to satisfy your Sweetie's sweet tooth!
