    Serve cheesecakes topped with whipped cream and drizzled with caramel sauce. Store in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • If you do not have a mini cheesecake pan, use 12 muffin cups lined with paper baking cups.
  • These mini cheesecakes can be made up to 3 days in advance. Just before serving, garnish with whipped cream and caramel sauce.
