  5. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray (or dab of coconut oil) and press a large spoonful of coconut mixture into each cup, pushing it evenly into the bottom and up the sides.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  7. Let cool in muffin pan before removing and placing on a cooling rack until ready to use.
  8. To prepare the roasted strawberries
  9. Increase oven temperature to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. You’ll want to use parchment for this as the strawberries get really juicy and sticky. Set aside.
  10. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add sugar, oil, vanilla, and salt. Once completely mixed, add cut strawberries and coat.
  11. Place strawberries on prepared pan and roast for 20-25 minutes, until juices thicken but are not burnt.
  12. Remove the berries and juice from the pan while still warm. Place in a small bowl, stir in balsamic vinegar, and set aside.
  13. To prepare the chocolate cheesecake filling
  14. Place cream cheese and milk to a small bowl. Stir until incorporated.
  15. Add chocolate, stir again.
  16. Divide the cream cheese mixture evenly among the coconut cups. Top with roasted strawberries, extra coconut or chocolate shavings.
