No-Bake Mini M&M Cheesecakes



We rarely have cheesecake. As much as I like it, I think I have maybe made it twice in the 8 years we have been married. It is one of my husbands favorite desserts so (being the wonderful wife that I am) decided to make it for him yesterday. I found a really simple no-bake recipe to try and I decided to mix it up a little by adding mini m&m's to the filling. Next time I think I will put the m&m's only on top instead of into the filling since the coloring from the m&m's changed the color of the cheesecake. They were still incredibly rich and delicious though! :)

No-Bake Mini M&M Cheesecakes
Adapted from Allrecipes

Ingredients
1 /2 cup graham cracker crumbs
5 tbsp butter, melted
2 tbsp sugar
3/4 cup mini m&m's
8 ounces package of cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

Melt butter and mix with graham cracker crumbs and sugar. Press mixture into a lined 12 cup cupcake pan. Meanwhile in a small mix bowl beat the vanilla and cream cheese until smooth. Add the vanilla and sweetened condensed milk to the cream cheese mixture, beating 45 to 60 seconds to mix all ingredients until smooth. Add m&m's. (Or you can wait and add them to the top right before serving) Spoon the filling mixture into your cupcake tins.
Refrigerate 1 hour, until mixture thickens. Enjoy!
