Cheesecake… It’s seriously one of the best desserts on the planet! When you bite into one of these strawberry cupcake cheesecakes, you are going to feel like you’ve died and gone to heaven. They are so creamy and have an amazing flavor and texture.

I have a secret to tell you. And you’re going to be so shocked when you find out what it is!

I used something a little extra special for these mini strawberry cheesecakes. The secret ingredient is the strawberry pudding mix. It just enhances the flavor and takes the cheesecakes to a whole new level that I’ve never had before. You already know how much I dislike boring desserts!

That’s why when I wanted to make a strawberry cheesecake, I wanted something that was different and not like what everybody else makes. I love regular strawberry cheesecake recipes, but I felt like using some Jell-O would take it to a whole new flavor depth. I was right because it is a huge victory, and I am certain you’re going to love everything about it too. 

How to Store Cheesecake Properly 

After you prepared this muffin tin dessert recipe, it’s essential to let it cool down. After they’ve cooled, you can go ahead and put them inside of an airtight container and keep them in the refrigerator.

It’s essential to never put the warm cheesecake in the fridge, or you’ll develop a lot of condensation on top of the cheesecakes. This could make them slimy and wet, and nobody wants to eat a slimy cheesecake.

Can I Use A Different Flavor Of Jello Pudding 

Yes, you can absolutely swap out the strawberry pudding for a different flavor. You could even do cherry, chocolate, or vanilla. They make so many different varieties of putting you might as well try them all! 

Could I Use An Oreo Crust Instead of Graham Cracker Crust 

When you’re making the strawberry cupcake cheesecakes, you can absolutely swap out the graham cracker crust for Oreo crust instead. All you need to do is follow the recipe as directed except use Oreos in place of the graham crackers. It will give you a more rich and chocolaty flavor. We all know how well chocolate and cheesecake go well together!

Do These Cheesecakes Freeze Well 

Yes, these mini strawberry cheesecakes freeze very well. Place some inside of an airtight freezer-safe container, and they will last up to three months! When you’re ready to serve them, you just take them out of the freezer and place them in the refrigerator until they’ve thawed.

They actually taste really good frozen, so consider that next time you make them. 

Tips for Making Cheesecakes in Muffin Tins 

Making mini cheesecakes in muffin tins is a relatively easy process. I wanted to give you a few tips to ensure that you have the best cheesecake experience ever. 

  • You can combine the melted butter and graham crackers in a food processor. This is an easy way to combine ingredients and provide you with the best crust ever.
  • You can use a measuring cup or a large cookie scoop to place the cheesecake batter on top of the crust. Whatever you do, make sure that you’re using the same thing for each cheesecake, so they’re all uniform in size.
  • Don’t over bake the mini cheesecakes. If you do, they will be dried out and really not flavorful.
