  • 1 cup Graham cracker- crushed
  • 3 Tbsp. Brown sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. Butter- melted
  • 8 oz. Cream cheese- room temperature
  • 2 cup Powdered sugar
  • 1 cup Heavy cream
  • Chocolate syrup


Making Mini Cheesecake Crust

  • Starting with your crust, mix together the crushed graham cracker and brown sugar in a bowl.
  • Add melted butter until well combined.
  • Place 12 cupcake liners into a muffin pan.
  • Add in 2 Tbsp. of the crust mixture into each liner.
  • Press down the mixture with a spoon making sure to pack tightly. (If not packed tightly the crust will crumble when taken out of the liners.)
  • Place into the freezer for 20 minutes.
  • While the crust is setting, start making your filling.

Mini Cheesecake Filling

  • In a bowl add in the room temperature cream cheese. (Must be room temperature or the filling will be clumpy.)
  • Beat the cream cheese until smooth with a stand mixer or a hand mixer.
  • Add in the powdered sugar ¼ cup at a time.
  • Mix until smooth and creamy.
  • In a separate bowl, pour in the heavy cream.
  • Beat until the heavy cream is the consistency of whipped cream.
  • Continue by folding the heavy cream into the cream cheese mixture, little amounts at a time.
  • Continue folding until well combined.
  • Once well combined, get the crusts from the freezer and put ¼ cup of the cheesecake filling into each of the mini cheesecake crusts.
  • Smooth out the top and place in the fridge until set. (Best to leave overnight, minimum 5 hours)
  • Once set take out the mini cheesecakes.
  • Drizzle chocolate syrup on top.
  • Serve with or without cupcake liners.
