Now that the cool, fall weather is here, I am craving warm, comfort foods. This Date Night In’s theme, Italian, definitely took care of that! For the appetizer, Matt and I had mozzarella sticks. At first, I wasn’t going to … Continue reading
You know those awesome coupons you get for your birthday? I love them. It’s a great opportunity to buy something you don’t need but want, without the guilt. I recently got a mini cheesecake pan with one of those.
I finally came across a recipe to use it.
First, you make a simple graham cracker crust and fill each cavity.
Fill it with the cheesecake filling.
And what is cheesecake and/or apple pie without some fresh whipped cream on top?! The original recipe calls for a Brown Sugar Whipped Cream but when it came time to make it I was exhausted. I used a whipped cream that I had already made for something else. I bet the brown sugar one tastes amazing though!
And why are these cheesecakes dangerous? Just look at them! Not only are they super cute, but you can eat one in two bites.
These cheesecakes are perfect to bring to a party. Thanksgiving perhaps??? Don’t forget to get the recipe by clicking on the link at the top of this post!
PS-if you don’t have a mini cheesecake pan, I am sure using a mini cupcake pan with liners would work just fine.
Believe it or not, I have never had a caramel apple. However, it is something I would love to try. I wonder if making them is a good activity to do with a 2 year old? I don’t think it would be messy at all (sarcasm with rolling of the eyes here). But that’s the fun of it so if we do, I will be sure to let you know how it goes!
The original recipe calls for melted caramels to drizzle on the frosting. I used caramel ice cream topping since I had it for the frosting. It ended up oozing down the sides of the cupcake rather than staying put on the frosting. It makes for a sticky mess. This may not happen if you do use actual caramels.
