Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like I should not be the one to make my own treats for my birthday?? But I love it!! And who else is gonna do it for me at the ripe age of 26?🤔 Anyways, I make these mini cheesecakes every year for my birthday and bring them to work. They are always a hit! I always used to think that making cheesecake would be super complicated until I tried it. It is actually very simple and does not require too many ingredients! Chances are, you might already have all of the ingredients on hand!

Bake the graham cracker crumbs.

Add the cheesecake filling.

Let cool.

Dip in chocolate.
