No-bake Cheesecake Bites

These little guys are dangerously good!

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Chill Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Yield: 24 mini bites

Ingredients

      Crust:

    • 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs (approximately 7 sheets)
    • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons melted butter
    • 3/4 cup chocolate chips, melted

Filling:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 cups marshmallows
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions

 

  1. Crush graham crackers into fine crumbs. You can do this by placing them in a ziplock bag and using a rolling pin, or in a food processor.
  2. Blend crumbs with sugar and melted butter in a large bowl.
  3. Scoop equal amounts of graham crumbs into a mini muffin tin and press down firmly. This should fill 2 mini muffin tins (24 mini muffins).
  4. Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave, working in 15 second increments so as not to burn the chocolate. Mix chocolate with a spoon until smooth.
  5. Drop 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate into each indent in the muffin tin, to make a layer of chocolate on top of the crust.
  6. Place in the fridge to chill for 1/2 hour.
  7. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in small saucepan over low-medium heat, then add marshmallows and stir frequently until marshmallows are melted.
  8. Using a whisk or hand mixer, beat together the melted marshmallows and cream cheese until smooth and fluffy.
  9. Remove muffin tins from fridge and scoop a teaspoon of marshmallow filling into each crust.
  10. Drizzle the remaining melted chocolate chips over the top of the mini bites.
  11. Marvel at how cute they are, and enjoy!
