Mini Egg Cheesecake is the dessert you want for all your Spring celebrations. White chocolate cream cheese cakes combine with Cadbury milk chocolate eggs.
When it comes to cheesecake, I think mini is best. They bake in a fraction of the time as a full-size cheesecake. And handheld desserts are just fun to eat. Less mess. They look cute on a plate. Automatic portion control. What’s not to love? I use this base cheesecake recipe for lots of holidays. This most recent variation may be my favorite though. Mini Egg Cheesecake starts with a white chocolate cheesecake batter. And then crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs are added. A golden Oreo provides the crust. These little desserts are so simple and oh, so delicious!

How to make Mini Egg Cheesecake
Line cupcake pans with cupcake liners. Place a golden Oreo in the bottom of each cupcake liner. With a hand or stand mixer, beat together softened cream cheese with sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth.
Melt the white chocolate in the microwave. Beat the melted white chocolate into the cheesecake batter. Crush the Cadbury Mini Eggs in a blender. Stir the crushed mini eggs into the white chocolate cheesecake batter.
Fill the cupcake liners to the top with the prepared cheesecake batter. Bake the mini cheesecakes at 350 degrees for 17-20 minutes. Allow to cool on the counter and then refrigerate overnight. Top with more Cadbury Mini Eggs to serve.
