Candy Bar Mini Cheesecakes Recipe
For today’s recipe, we used two different flavors of coffee creamer and just separated the batter before adding the final ingredient. We used regular graham cracker crumbs for both cheesecakes but you can use peanut butter cookies for the REESE’S® cheesecakes or mix some almonds into the Almond Joy™ ones.
Before adding the flavored coffee creamer to the recipe, be sure to separate the batter in half if you want a variety of flavors.
As if the cheesecakes would not be amazing on their own, we decided to add even more burst to your mouth. Flavored whipped topping using more of the creamer. We opted for using powdered whipped topping instead of whipping cream but you can experiment with that as well.
Simply replace the milk with the International Delight® creamer and mix until peaks form. Make as many whipped toppings as flavors of cheesecakes.
Top them with a little cut up candy to let your guests know what flavor they are picking.
So which of these mini cheesecakes would you like to try first?
Is there a REESE’S® Peanut Butter Cup in your mug? There should be. Make this amazing peanut butter chocolate iced coffee with some of the extra REESE’S® whipped topping.
