Why I Love This Recipe

These are so much fun! This is not my recipe, this is from Kraft

Ingredients You'll Need

16 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
12 Nilla Wafers
1-1/2 cups Angel Flake Coconut, tinted green
36 small jelly beans
12 pieces shoestring licorice (4 inch each)
12 paper-lined medium muffin cups


Preheat oven to 350

Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until well blended

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

Top with coconut and jelly beans just before serving

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

Store leftover cheesecakes in refrigerator.
