Tasty toffee bits are a sweet surprise inside individual, creamy cheesecakes. I sometimes drizzle chocolate syrup over the whipped cream garnish.—Marla Hyatt, St Paul, Minnesota

TOTAL TIME:
Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + chilling

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chocolate wafer crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup toffee bits
  • FILLING:
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Optional toppings: chocolate wafers, whipped cream and additional toffee bits

Directions

Place each of four greased 4-in. springform pans on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square). Securely wrap foil around pans.
In a small bowl, combine cracker crumbs and butter. Press onto bottoms of prepared pans; sprinkle with toffee bits.
In a large bowl, beat the condensed milk, cream cheese and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Pour filling over crusts. Place springform pans in a large baking pan; add 1 in. of hot water to larger pan.
Bake at 350° for 24-28 minutes or until centers are just set and tops appear dull. Remove springform pans from water bath. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edges of pans to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Refrigerate overnight.
To make decorative stars, place a chocolate wafer on a small piece of waxed paper; microwave on high for 30-60 seconds or until softened. Immediately, cut with a 1-1/2-in. star-shaped cookie cutter. Garnish cheesecakes with whipped cream, additional toffee bits and stars as desired. Yield: 4 servings.
