More About This Recipe
  • 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. 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! Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove and let it cool to room temperature. Place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Top with caramel sauce and pecans. Then enjoy!
