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.

Reese’s is my favorite candy bar! Those mini cheesecakes are basically my dream come true and I could easily devour an entire batch on my own.
Coffee and candy–my two favorite things! The cheesecakes look fantastic as does the iced coffee. Love that you can use creamer for so many things.
I’m convinced everything is tastier when it’s tiny! Maybe it’s because all of the flavor is packed into one bite. Can’t wait to try these cheesecakes.
Reese’s are my favorite and this looks amazing. Actually, it looks like something I’d have a hard time eating just a few.
Oh these look delicious. I am hosting book club this month these would be a perfect dessert for the ladies.
Wow…candy bars & cheesecake all in one. Sounds great. Also perfect that they are mini so as not to eat too many.
Oh I could so eat loads of those. Looks like a great way to use up leftover chocolate too.
These mini cheesecakes are perfect for a dessert buffet. They look like a little bite of heaven
