The perfect Easter treat compliments of Kraft. I was browsing the ktafy site when I discovered this recipe. A delcious dessert that is not to crazy in calories. I amended the receipe to use Chocolate cream cheese to create two types of Bird's Nests
Graham wafers and melted butter should be blended together, add a spoonful of the mixture to each paper cup. Press firmly.
Mix cream cheese, sugar and vanilla together add one egg at a time,
on slow speed and when completely blended spoon into the paper cups.
For vanilla I used 1/2 cup sugar, 2 pkgs of cream cheese and a cap of vanilla,
once blended I slowly added the two eggs.
For Chocolate: I used one pkg of cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar and
small cap of vanilla, slowly add one egg.
Coconut and eggs were recommended to be added after they cakes were cooled. I decided to toast the coconut so i have a brownish shade.
Cook at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes, remove from oven and let cool for three hours ( then add 1 tbsp of coconut and the eggs for a birds nest effect.) For me I added the coconut and eggs immediately hoping to have them adhere better to the cakes.
I divided the recipe into 2/3rds and 1/3 so I could make some chocolate ones as well. The recipe makes 18 mini cheesecakes.
