Mini Cheesecake Bites w/ Strawberry Topping.

Hi Ya’ll!

 

Happy Saturday!

I hope that everyone is having a great weekend so far. My day has been pretty busy. I got a bit of work done (working from home) while juggling my little guy at some points. Now, that my little guy is taking a nap, I’ve decided to get a bit of blogging done by first starting with a recipe I made on Thursday.

Now, you guys know that I love my sweet treats and although I’m a Southern girl who loves big portions, I’ve been trying to eat a bit healthier, so I made something in “Mini-size” again. Haha!

I’m a lover of Cheesecake and those of you who read my blog regularly, know that I’ve posted about my Mini Pumpkin CheesecakesClick Here! previously.

This time, however, I was not in the mood for anything pumpkin (nor did I want to repeat my previous recipe), so I decided to go for a Mini version of regular Cheesecake w/ a Strawberry topping (not a HUGE fan of Cherries), but with a tastey twist! This recipe is so easy and GOOD! It’s definitely a WINNER in my house (voted by both my guys, of course!). As an added treat, I made the crust out of Graham Cracker crumbs as usual, but then topped each crust with a Vanilla Wafer to add that extra bit of mildly sweet flavor and great shape and uphold.

It’s sure to be a family favorite and is a great size, even for the little ones, to ensure that they aren’t eating too much sweets!

Check out more pictures and the Recipe below. ENJOY.
