Mini Snickers Caramel Cheesecakes

Happy Dessert Day Friday! If you're a cheesecake lover, a chocolate lover or a caramel lover, you're going to love this recipe. Feel free to enjoy! 

2 cups chopped Snickers Bars
2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
5 Tablespoons melted butter
2 (8 ounce) packages softened cream cheese
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 tablespoons caramel sauce, plus some for garnish

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place chopped Snickers bars into a bowl, set aside.
3. Place graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter into a mixing bowl to combine. Spoon a couple spoonfuls of crumbs into each section of a 12-cup muffin pan and press down and up the sides. Bake for 5-6 minutes or just until browned. Remove from oven.
4. In a stand or electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth and creamy. Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined, scraping sides of bowl with a rubber spatula.
5. Beat in caramel sauce until well combined. Pour about 1/4 cup of cheesecake mixture over each baked crust then top evenly with chopped Snickers. Bake for 23-26 minutes or until cheesecake edges are just starting to brown and centers are nearly set. Remove and let cool completely.
6. While still warm, loosen all edges with a plastic knife to make for easier removal from pan.
7. Refrigerate once cooled then drizzle with caramel sauce.
