Mini Grasshopper Cheesecakes

Recipe by HeatherFeather

A thin mint cookie for a base and a yummy green filling..perfect for St Patricks day or anytime. A big hit with kids too. My own creation. You will need 18-24 foil cupcake liners for these.

  9. Combine topping and spoon onto each cake, then allow to cool completely still in the tins. (about 30 minutes).
