Picture of Mini Cheesecake Nibblers
Sometimes, when I am alone, I wonder what it is like to be a giant.  Mini cheesecake nibblers help me turn this imaginary world into real life. Try it.  Once you put one of these little buggers in your palm, you too will feel like Paul Bunion sans overalls and giant blue ox.

An awesome bonus is that these mini nibblers are perfect for baking into another baked snack.  I use them when I do my "cheesecake in a cupcake" flavor bomb.  And c'mon, anything with baked cream cheese, sugar, and cream can't be bad, right?

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
1 package of graham crackers
1 tbls granulated sugar
3 tbls of butter (I prefer the taste of salted, but it doesn't really matter)

cheesecake filling:
mini muffin tin
2 8oz package of cream cheese
2 eggs
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
splash of vanilla extract
mini muffin liners
Optional: fruit topping

This may be a Newby question, how long do you have to refrigerate for?

For a bit of a different take on the cheese cake, try a ground cereal like cheerios or special k or even fruity pebbles for a real sugar blast instead of graham crackers.

Tip: use this: http://www.amazon.com/Handy-Gourmet-Pancake-Batter-Dispenser/dp/B000U6AXDI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1307759729&sr=8-1

I bought one of these and they work so well for putting batter into cupcake pans. Best part is that it's $5.25 and free two day shipping (if you are a member of it)!

I don't have the luxury of a food processor. Can I mash the graham crackers to the same consistency by hand?

I put them in a Gallon Zip Lock and run my rolling pin over it.

Awesome! I'm gonna have to try that, which is way better then my original idea using a meat tenderizer...

Yeah, you can use any method to crush. I just recently got a fancy food processor, and before that, I did the old "zip loc bag" trick.

If you have kids, this is also something great for them to do!
