Once melted, remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool in the refrigerator for 15 – 20 minutes. 4. Once the chocolate is cool, combine the melted chocolate and softened cream cheese in a mixing bowl. Beat using an electric mixer until the mixture is smooth and no lumps remain. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. 5. Crush the graham crackers by pulsing them in a blender or food processor. Once crushed, add 2 tbsp of graham cracker crumbs to each glass. 6. Pour some cheesecake into each glass. 7. If you plan to serve them later, refrigerate the glasses and be sure to cover with plastic wrap. Top each glass with a dollop of blueberry coulis before serving. 8. To make blueberry coulis, in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the blueberries, water, sugar, vanilla extract and lemon juice. Stir the mixture occasionally, as it will begin to bubble and boil. Allow the sauce to thicken, this make take up to 10 minutes. Allow the sauce to cool slightly before adding it to the cheesecake.
