A while back we found a recipe for mini snickers cheesecakes and we’ve been obsessed ever since. These No-Bake Mini Cheesecakes with Raspberry Sauce kind of started the obsession for us and for our readers as no matter what time of year it is they tend to go crazy on our site. Plus, hooray for a no-bake cheesecake recipe!

 

When we decided to make a new mini cheesecakes recipe we knew we had to make it easy regardless of if it ended up no-bake or not and I think this one totally works.

How Many Graham Crackers Make a Cup of Crumbs?

When you make a graham cracker crust it’s always a little annoying to figure out how many grahams you need to crush. It’s around a cup per package of graham crackers, or 8 crackers. You are welcome.

 

Can You Freeze Cheesecake?

Heck yes you can freeze cheese! Big or small, plain or flavored, any cheesecake holds up quite well in the freezer. A cream sauce goes a little differently, but cheesecake is nice and dense so the freezer wont break it up at all.

How to Freeze Cheesecake

So let’s break it down, here’s how to freeze cheesecake, start out by freezing the entire cheesecake on a baking pan. Once it’s frozen solid, remove it from the freezer and wrap it tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. We tend to do both because I don’t like the ice crystals to form on the cheesecake top as defrosting it will make the top wet. Next, place the entire cheesecake, or in this case the mini cheesecakes in a freezer bag, press the air out, seal it and place it back in the freezer.

 

How Long is Cheesecake Good for in the Fridge and Freezer?

Homemade cheesecake lasts for 5-7 days stored with plastic wrap over it to prevent drying for 5-7 days. In the freezer, cheesecake is actually good for 7-8 months! Can you believe that? Doesn’t make you feel as bad about making Mini Twix Caramel Cheesecakes for dessert this week, does it?

Ingredients:

For the Crust

  • 1  1/2 Cups Graham Cracker Crumbs, about 1 1/2 Packages
  • 4 Tablespoons Melted Butter
  • 1 Teaspoon Sugar

For the Cheesecakes

  • 2 (8 oz each) Packages Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Cup Caramel Sauce
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Cup Halved Mini Twix, divided * see note

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. In a bowl, add the butter, graham cracker crumbs and sugar, stirring to combine. Press cupcake wrappers into the holes of a muffin tin and fill each one evenly with the graham crackers. Bake for 5 minutes and remove to cool.
  3. In a bowl, beat the cream cheese with a hand mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the sugar and vanilla extract and beat again.
  4. Next, add one egg and beat on low smooth until just incorporated. Add the next egg and repeat.
  5. Gently fold 1/2 Cup of twix into the batter and spoon evenly between the cupcake liners. Drizzle a little caramel over each top and using a toothpick, swirl it carefully in. Sprinkle however many remaining twix as you’d like over each top.
  6. Bake for 15-16 minutes and then remove to cool. Once the cheesecakes have cooled for a bit, place in the fridge for 1-2 hours.

Enjoy!

The best Twix to buy, but not necessary are the mini unwrapped Twix. You merely need to half them and no unwrapping at all!

  2. Whooo, I’m so surprised that in the freezer this homemade cheesecake is good for 7-8 months!!! Good to know 🙂 Thanks!

  3. These look so yummy! I’m going to make them this weekend. I do have one question about this sentence “Sprinkle however many remaining cheesecakes as you’d like over each top.” After folding only 1/2 the Twix in, I spoon even amounts into the cups and drizzle with caramel. Then do we top with an equal amount of batter? What about the second 1/2 cup of Twix? Thanks for your great, inspiring recipes!

    • Sorry about that, you fold in the 1/2 of twix to the batter and divide the batter between all of the muffin cups. Swirl in the caramel and then if you’d like the twix to show like in our photo, sprinkle a few remaining twix over the tops of the cheesecakes before baking. You already used all the batter so there isn’t a layering effect. 🙂
