Easter is quickly approaching and so is spring!  I love the bright colors that are appearing and the sunshine that is now making its way into my bedroom in the morning.  These Mini Egg Cheesecakes mimic the bright colors of spring!

A staple for Easter time is mini eggs and if you are one of those people that wait all year for the mini eggs to appear again then this dessert is definitely for you!

Easter Mini Egg Cheesecake Dessert


For this dessert, I used some mini mason jars that my mother bought me for Christmas, but you could also use small glass cups for this dessert.

The mason jars are nice because you can screw a top on them if you want to give them away, but if you are simply making these for your family then there is nothing wrong with mini glass cups.

One warning that I have is the mini eggs are a little difficult to cut.  Take your time and do not be all ambitious trying to cut a whole bunch at a time.  Doing that will probably end with the mini eggs going everywhere!

Cut one egg at a time. (I cut them into about three pieces each) Some of the mini eggs will be mixed into your cheesecake layer, and some will be used as a simple garnish on top.

I’m Megan. I love to bake! I am a 19-year old student in my second year of Bible college, and after this year I plan on going through a baking and pastries program to learn more about baking. One day I hope to work for a bakery or maybe even own my own bakery! For now, I love baking for friends and family and we’ll see where God takes me in the future.

This recipe looks so yummy. I get chosen to make cheesecake at all of the family gatherings and it is made similar to yours minus the chocolate eggs of course but it always tastes so good.
