I know it's not cheat day, but....No it took a lot of self restraint not to eat a bunch of these. I had to make dinner for a family and these are something that I have wanted to try, so I did and I tasted one (or two) to make sure they were okay to give away. The rest are in the freezer awaiting cheat day.
I used this recipe as the cheesecake base, but obviously I did not make this in a springform pan, so we had to improvise a bit. You will need to double the crust, because 1 cheesecake recipe will make about 100 little bite size bad boys. I used mini muffin pans, which I sprayed with PAM. I put about 3/4 tsp. of crust mixture in the bottom of the muffin pans and packed that down. I baked just the crust in the oven at 350 for about 5 minutes. Then I filled each muffin cup about 3/4 of the way full with the cheesecake base. Then baked them for 15 minutes at 350. Let them sit until cooled, then carefully run a knife around the edges, and then tip the pan over and they should just fall out. For presentation purposes I put each one in a gold foil candy cup (not really sure there official name). Half I topped with lime curd and a thin slice of a key lime and the others I just drizzled with fudge and carmel. Simple and relatively easy to make.
