Variety Picnic Cheesecake Cupcakes


Pictured:  Blueberry, Mandarin Orange, Heath Bar, Chocolate Chip, Rainier Cherry, Strawberry, Raspberry and Hershey Kiss
One of the easiest and most posted recipes on the net, perfect for summer picnics, office parties and you can really be imaginative in creating your favorite toppings. Chocolate chips, white chips, nuts, marshmallow, favorite candy bars, preserves of any kind,  fruit slices,  to include fresh peach, cherry, mandarin orange, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, pineapple just to name a few and caramel topping all make wonderful choices for your family and friends. Have ice cream toppings in the fridge? Mix and match and make several kinds to please everyone. They are easy, fun to make and sure to please a crowd.. This batch using smaller tin cups the size of the wafer made 30 cupcakes.

Note to all my blogger friends: please see last comment at the bottom....

2 packages 8oz each of cream cheese softened
2 eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar plus 1 tablespoon
1 box nilla wafers
1 bottle of triple berry smuckers ice cream topping or jam
1 bottle of strawberry ice cream topping or jam
Mini Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes (my families favorite!)


Prepare tins.  Add paper liners to cupcake tins. Put wafers in each paper cup. Set aside.
In a separate bowl mix cream cheese, eggs, sugar and flavoring and beat till smooth and creamy no lumps.

Triple berry ice topping added to the batter and swirled

Using a ladle spoon onto wafers. Top with a teaspoon of toppings, swirl with the tip of a knife . Bake at 350 degree oven,  till the center is solid around 25 to 30 minutes.

YUMMMMMMMM!!!!! Love those cupcakes and would like a sample of them all right now. I could never eat just one! I'm having no problem with comments but sure am with line spacing on blogger. Don't know why there are so many spaces between paragraphs. There's an award for you on my blog today.

Lovely mini-cheesecakes! The fruit topped ones look fresh and the chocolate ones look scrumptious :)

I'm a sucker for these. I could (and would) eat them all! As for commenting: I seem to be fine with google chrome. Internet explorer does not work well.

I might just make these for a party coming up, they are so pretty! For the orange, did you use a different kind of topping to swirl in it?

What did you do to make the mint chocolate ones?

I finally figured that out with the comments, it wsa super frustrating not being able to comment.

Cheesecake for those of who have to watch our calorie intake. Just eat one to get a taste and I bet my wife will like them as she can throw a couple in her lunch.

I really don't like baking during the summer which is early for us this year -- can you believe about 10 days of 90+ temps all ready? But at a certain level the air con is working non-stop so why not bake? These look very spring or summer like, thank you for sharing.

mobile said...

Magic of Spice said...

These all look so fun and agreed they are a perfect picnic treat :)Well for me cheesecake is an anywhere anytime deal :)

P.S. I have had trouble on some sites but some I had trouble with recently seem to be OK now? I still have a hard time if the site is not in English and that has been for weeks now :( I do hope they fix everything soon...

Drick said...
