Mini Twix Cheesecakes

It can be hard to bake things for a..selective little sister. So when I found a recipe that made her eyes light up and her say “Yum, make that!” you know for certain that it was going to be made. Besides, who can resist something that has CANDY inside of it? These lonely mini Twix bars have been in my cabinet, calling for something delicious to be made out of them. Like last week, I had never made cheesecake before, although I’ve bookmarked many recipes 🙂 After these, with their oh-so-creamy filling but with the slight crunch of the cookie part of the Twix, these mini-cheesecakes are the definition of heaven. So go and get yourself a slice of heaven and make these cheesecakes. 😉

Mini Twix Cheesecakes: Adapted from Gingerbread Bagels

Makes 14 mini-cheesecakes

Ingredients

Crust

  • 6 Graham Crackers
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Cheesecake

  • 2 packages (16 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (I used Chobani instead!)
  • 12 mini Twix bars, chopped into small pieces

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees and line 14 muffin tins.
  2. In a food processor, grind up the graham crackers into fine crumbs. Pour into a bowl and add in the sugar. Mix to combine. Add in the melted butter until fully coated.
  3. Scoop 1 tablespoon of the graham cracker mixture into each cupcake liner and press down firmly with your hand. Set aside.
  4. In a stand mixer, put in the cream cheese and mix for 3 minutes, or until smooth. (A hand mixer works fine) With the mixer on, add in the sugar and combine. Add in the vanilla extract. Beat in the eggs until fully combined. Finally, add in the sour cream and combine.
  5. Add the chopped up mini Twix bars to the cheesecake batter and fold in.
  6. Using and ice cream scooper, scoop the batter into each cupcake liner. Bake for 30 minutes. Refrigerate the cheesecakes overnight, then enjoy!

If you’re having a bad day, make these cheesecakes. If you’re having a good day, make these cheesecakes. If you’re having any day, make these cheesecakes. You won’t regret it! 🙂
