Personal Easter Cheesecake Cupcakes

Happy Easter everybody! Easter is such a fun holiday! I love every single holiday because the holidays mean great recipes follow! Traditional recipes such as deviled eggs and sugar cookies are some of my favorites! This Easter, I wanted to develop something creative and fun that everybody would love! I wanted something bite size, adorable, and colorful! As I was planning my recipes, this Personal Cheesecake recipe came to mind! I love it because it is super easy to follow, and the toppings can be whatever flavors you like!

For Easter, of course I wanted to use my favorite little candy, Cadbury eggs! They are so creamy, so delicious, and so addictive. It's like you eat one and then half the bag is gone and you can't help but just finish the other half of the bag! So yeah, they're a dangerous little treat! But they're also amazing and we're going to use them! I wanted the top of the cheesecake to look like a little nest for the eggs. I went ahead and topped them with a little homemade salted caramel sauce and chocolate shavings! They turned out so cute, and they taste even better!

If this is your first time making cheesecake, it is a little difficult to tell if you are making it right. I am such a visual learner and I love pictures so I thought I'd photograph this process so you can see exactly what I did and make them just like I did! Go ahead and scroll to see more!

Step by Step Picture Guide:

Here is the wet sand consistency for the crust you are looking for!

Next step is to press the graham crackers down into the liners to create the crust! I used the bottom of one of my seasonings to get a perfect edge!

Fill each cup up to about the top before baking!

Here is the cheesecakes hot out of the oven! Slightly browned, not cracked is what you want!

Below I have the recipe listed with the instructions! These cheesecakes have been tested by both mine and Brandon's families and they have had high praise! I am making another batch this Sunday for my family party and I think that you should too! Your friends and family will LOVE it! I hope you all enjoy!!

Personal Easter Cheesecake Cupcakes
Makes 12 cheesecakes

1 cup graham crackers
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons sugar
16 ounces cream cheese
2 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Chocolate Bar
Caramel Sauce: recipe below
1 bag Mini Cadbury Eggs

Preheat oven to 325.

In a food processor, plus graham crackers until they become crumbs. Add melted butter and sugar and mix. Consistency should be similar to wet sand.

Line cupcake tins with paper liners. Fill liners with a tablespoon of graham cracker mix. Press down to create smooth crust. Bake for 5-6 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool.

Prepare cheesecake batter. In electric mixer, start by beating cream cheese. Add eggs, sour cream, sugar, and vanilla and mix well. Batter should be smooth.

Fill each cupcake tin with about 3 tablespoons of batter, almost to the top.

Bake for 20 minutes or until tops are set. Allow cheesecake to cool completely in the fridge, about one hour, before serving.

Grate your favorite chocolate bar into thin slices. I used a milk chocolate Symphony bar.

Top each cheesecake with one tablespoon of caramel sauce. Add a pinch of grated chocolate pieces and top with Cadbury eggs. Enjoy!

Caramel Sauce

1 cup brown sugar
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoons vanilla
Sea Salt

In a medium sauce pan on medium low heat, combine brown sugar, butter, and heavy cream. Cook over medium low heat until sauce begins to thicken, about 8 minutes, stirring continually. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Sprinkle in about 2 teaspoons of sea salt. Let cool in refrigerator to allow sauce to firm.
