Step By Step  

Fall is in full swing and holiday baking is here! Make Thanksgiving (or any fall party) easy this year by adding these adorable and tasty 3-Layer Caramel Pecan Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites to your dessert buffet.

As prepared by Baker Peabody,

Treat your guests to a two-bite flavor explosion.

With the addition of caramel and pecans, you can easily take these cheesecakes up a notch. Make it extra special by making the crust with Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal for a delicious change of pace. You can use plain graham cracker crumbs instead (same ratio of 1 cup) but I really think you should give the cereal a try!

To make the cheesecake bites:

Heat oven to 300° F.
