This was unbelievably easy and wonderful! Place in a mini Valentine cupcake paper and when warm from the oven, press a Reese's pnut butter cup, then drizzle with Hershey's syrup - decadent!

I haved this recipe and swirled in a little homemade raspberry jam into the batter just before putting them in the oven. The centers fell a bit so I served them with another spoonful of jam on top. They were a bit tough to get out of the cups cleanly when warm, so I put them in the fridge for about 10 minutes before getting them out of the papercups to serve. Thanks for the recipe!

This is my long lost loved. I first discovered this recipe when I was about 19 years old. I don't know where I got the recipe from. I remembering making it about 3x's. I even invited my 13 year old cousin to come and spend the night and I would show her how to make this recipe for a party our family was throwing the next day. We had a blast making this together. I somehow ended up losing this recipe. I have thought about it often over the years. I have mentioned it to people when talking about cheesecakes or recipes and no one I spoke with was familar with this recipe. I have tried googling it before but didn't find what I was looking for then one day I was looking up cheesecake recipes on this site and up popped this one! Yeah! Finally! I was sooo excited. I later showed it to my 13 year old daugther and she was excited as well. She wants to make them next week and already she is planning what toppings she'll use....'chocolated drizze, mini chocolate chips, and hmmm' (her mind drifts off deep into thought). I'm so excited that I found this and can now pass along to my oldest daughter. By the way, the ingredient list says vanilla wafers is that the same as the vanilla nilla cookies? That's what I always used. Thanks for posting and helping me find my long lost love.

These were well received when I made them for Christmas last year. My in-laws thought they were awesome and my dh said they were a definite make again. Which is really saying something since he rarely eats sweets! I made ours using mini cupcake liners and topped with heath bits and mini chocolate chips from the baking aisle.

Jan 09: These are delicious and easy and were a hit with everybody. I couldn't find the mini cupcake papers so I used regular and crushed the vanilla wafers with some melted butter to make a little crust in the bottoms. I topped some with cherry pie filling, some with chocolate chips, some with both! These are great to bring for pot lucks or parties. Update Dec 09: I found the mini cupcake liners, so made these again with the nilla wafers whole as the crust. One note: the vanilla wafers tend to get soggy after a day or so, I'll crush them with melted butter for a crust from now on to avoid that. One other note - this recipe makes more like SIXTY mini cheesecake cups, not 16 like the recipe calls for! Which is a good thing, I had 2 parties to bring them to, so it was perfect. I made some as turtle cheesecake using chocolate chips, a piece of pecan, and caramel. Very versatile recipe, thanks!

I couldn't believe how easy and tasty these were! I adore cheesecake and with the wafer as a base, it really worked! The cheesecake baked up and set well and was sweet enough without overpowering the tang of cheese. I may have eaten 5 in one go!

these were so easy to make. Only thing I found is they didn't work well in the bigger cupcake tin, so I used the mini one and it worked out perfect! I topped some with caramel and some with chocolate chips. I bought them to a get together for Easter and they all disappeared!

Made these for my Office Food Day that we do every month to celebrate employee's birthdays. They were a HIT! Everyone LOVED them. <3 I left some plain, sprinkled brown sugar on some, sprinkled mini chocolate chips on some, and sprinkled Ande's Mint chips on some. The ones with the Ande's Mint chips were the most popular. Such a great simple recipe. :)
