Add eggs; beat just until blended * Place wafer on bottom of each of 12 paper-lined medium muffin cups

Spoon cream cheese mixture evenly over wafers

Bake 20 minutes or until centers are almost set

Cool and then refrigerate at least 2 hours

Bend each licorice piece, then insert both ends into each cheesecake to resemble the handle of a basket

Store leftover cheesecakes in refrigerator.
