Treat Tuesday #168 (Happy Book Birthday)

Treat Tuesday: No-Bake Mini Reese’s Cheesecakes

*I saw this on Facebook the other day and I stopped scrolling to read the recipe and watch the video.

*Anything with Reese's will catch my attention!

*We haven't tried making these yet, but plan to for the holiday season.

*They look a little time consuming, but I'm sure well worth it!!!


¾ cup of chocolate wafer cookie crumbs
¼ cup melted, unsalted butter

8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature 6 tablespoons of granulated sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon sour cream 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled
24 REESE’S Mini Peanut Butter Cups
Hershey’s syrup
Holiday sprinkles

1. Pour cookies in food processor and blend until they are fine crumbs. Combine cookie crumbs and butter until moistened.
2. Divide crust mixture evenly into lined mini muffin tins.
3. Press crust into the bottoms of the pan.
4. Refrigerate while you prepare the filling.

1. On medium speed, beat cream cheese and sugar until blended and smooth.

4. Fill a plastic freezer bag with the cheesecake filling and snip the corner for piping.
