Mini Cheesecakes Topped With A Mini Caramel Apple
For this you can use your favorite cheesecake recipe. You can choose to use a crust or go crustless…Your call. I swear by my adaptation below (or the original) of Jim Fobels Cheesecake Recipe!
To make the caramel from wrapped (Kraft) Caramels.
25 individually wrapped Kraft caramels
3 1/2 TBS heavy cream
In a small pot or saucepan, combine the caramels and the cream and heat over medium heat, stiffing often until caramels have melted and cream is incorporated. Scrape caramel into a small deep bowl, and begin dipping apples (with the lollipop sticks already placed in them), placing them on a parchment paper lined tray as you finish each one. Double dipping is a good thing. Quickly place in the fridge to allow the caramel to firm up, decorate with additional chocolate or whatever you choose. Store in the fridge until you are ready to top your mini cheesecakes with them.
