Memorial Day is just around the corner and I needed something to make for my annual party that I throw. I always make cheesecakes, I am kind of famous for it, and I knew that if I didn’t make it I would be in trouble. I wanted to change it up though! I knew I wanted to make mini cheesecakes (or you can call them cheesecake cups) and it had to be chocolate and caramel. TWIX® Bites were perfect for what I wanted.

While I was at my local Walmart picking up some other things I needed to get for my party, I wondered down the candy aisle to see what I could find! After looking at several options I found TWIX® Bites and knew they would be a perfect match for my cheesecakes. Have you seen these? I just want to say that they are awesome… no unwrapping, you can just grab them and do what you need to do with them.  If you haven’t seen these yet, you need to check them out.

After I grabbed my TWIX® Bites on the candy aisle, I picked up cream cheese, whipped topping, strawberries and blueberries and headed home to try this idea I had. I decided to make TWIX® Mini Cheesecakes. I topped it with whipped cream that I folded crushed TWIX® Bites into and put strawberries and blueberries to keep with the red white and blue theme.

They were super easy to make and I love how cute they came out.  Here is what you’ll need to make your own:

Cupcake Pan and white wrappers

For Cheesecake batter:

  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract

12 vanilla wafers
Whipped topping – homemade or store bought will work fine. I went with store bought.
TWIX® Bites
Berries – Strawberries and Blueberries

Add 1 TWIX® piece in the middle. Bake 22 to 24 minutes or until centers are almost set. Cool in pan on wire rack. (Mini cheesecakes will deflate in center upon cooling.). Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

Take out the whipped topping and allow it to defrost completely.

Step 3: Grab a handful of TWIX® Bites and chop them up in a food processor or you can chop them with a knife. Fold 2/3 of it into the whipped topping. ***this taste so good just so you know, I could eat a whole bowl of JUST this – HA.

Step 5: Add whipped topping. ***be careful this will melt kind of fast so I would wait until you serve this to add the topping or allow your guest to create their own mini cheesecakes. Top with the strawberries, blueberries and 1 TWIX® piece.
