Mini Peppermint Cheesecakes

Updated on August 5, 2014

I love Peppermint Season! You say that you haven't heard of it? Well for me, Peppermint Season runs from December through to the end of February. This is my favorite time to enjoy everything peppermint. These Mini Peppermint Cheesecakes are a delicious treat anytime during Peppermint Season and especially for Christmas and Valentine's Day. Change the color of the mini cupcake papers to reflect your seasonal celebration or event.

I think mini foods are fabulous! When having company, I love serving many appetizers for dinner and mini desserts to finish off the meal. It's fun, casual and for me it's easier than having everything hot and ready on the table at a certain time. Peppermint Cheesecakes are one of my favorite mini desserts and you and your guests will love them.
