No-Bake Turtle Mini Cheesecakes
For the Crust:
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
For the Cheesecake Filling:
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream, whipped to stiff peaks
For the Topping:
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup caramel sauce, plus extra for drizzling
1/4 cup chocolate chips, melted
1. Prepare the Crust:
In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted butter. Stir until the mixture resembles wet sand.
Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of a muffin tin lined with paper liners. You should have enough crust mixture to fill about 12 mini cheesecakes.
Place the muffin tin in the refrigerator to chill while you prepare the filling.
2. Make the Cheesecake Filling:
In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
Gently fold in the whipped heavy cream until fully incorporated, being careful not to deflate the mixture.
3. Assemble the Cheesecakes:
Remove the chilled crusts from the refrigerator.
Spoon the cheesecake filling evenly into each muffin cup, filling them almost to the top.
Smooth the tops with a spatula or the back of a spoon.
4. Add the Topping:
Sprinkle chopped pecans evenly over the top of each cheesecake.
Drizzle caramel sauce over the pecans.
Melt chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the caramel sauce.
5. Chill and Serve:
Place the muffin tin in the refrigerator and chill the cheesecakes for at least 2 hours, or until set.
Once set, carefully remove the mini cheesecakes from the muffin tin and peel off the paper liners.
Drizzle additional caramel sauce over the tops of the cheesecakes, if desired, before serving.
6. Enjoy!
Indulge in these delightful no-bake turtle mini cheesecakes, and savor the combination of creamy cheesecake, crunchy pecans, gooey caramel, and rich chocolate!
