Mini Malted Milk Mini Cheesecakes- perfect recipe for leftover Easter candy!

Cheesecake screams Easter to me. I can’t remember an Easter that hasn’t included cheesecake in fact. So I was happy to partner with PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese for their Bring Out The Silver campaign along with some other delicious bloggers. Today I’m sharing the recipe for Mini Malted Milk Cheesecakes. We’re all sharing delicious mini cheesecake recipes with you today- so you’re going to have a difficult time deciding which one will make an appearance at your table this Easter!

Mini Malted Milk PHILADELPHIA Cheesecake

Do you bring out the silver when it comes to cream cheese? PHILADELPHIA = silver packaging 🙂 I sure do! I love that PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese bricks have zero preservatives and that they use fresh milk and real cream that goes from farm to fridge in just six days, all since 1872. That’s why PHILADELPHIA sets the standard for making such a rich, moist cheesecake for your family gatherings.

Mini Malted Milk Cheesecake Recipe

If you are intimidated from making a cheesecake I would suggest starting with minis- either in a mini cheesecake pan or in a muffin tin lined with paper cups. To make the best cheesecake you always want to bring your ingredients to room temperature by setting cream cheese out for at least 10 minutes. I always set my eggs in a dish of tepid water as well. Be gentle with your batter when mixing, and be patient with your oven (no peeking!) while baking. I adapted my recipe from this very delicious PHILADELPHIA Mini Cheesecake Recipe.
