Cherry Cheesecake Cupcakes

Happy Memorial Day my friends! It’s Laura from Inspiration for Moms back to share with you another sweet dessert recipe – this time it even comes with a cherry on top! My Cherry Cheesecake Cupcakes are irresistible. Just take a look….

Did you know you could have cheesecake in a cupcake size? Well, you can! This mini size is the perfect way to indulge your sweet tooth and still keep your pants buttoned. 😉

Each delicious cupcake treat begins with a vanilla wafer crust, a smooth cheesecake middle and a scoop of cherry pie filling for the top. The combination is a dream come true for your taste buds!

I may have got a little carried away with the cherries. (I didn’t think anyone would mind.) My mini cupcakes are not only a treat to eat they’re also ridiculously easy to make. Really! From start to finish, it’s about 30 minutes and that includes baking time. It’s a great choice for a last minute dessert that will impressive your family and friends!

If you are in the mood for another cool treat, you’ll want to check out my Strawberry Chocolate Banana Green Smoothie. It’s great for breakfast or even an afternoon snack.

I do hope you will give this dessert a try and let me know how it goes! Alright everyone, enjoy your the rest of your holiday weekend and I will see you again in June! As always, feel free to stop by Inspiration for Moms and say hi! 🙂
