Mini Cookies & Cream Cheesecakes


It's almost Spring. Are you excited? Because I am totally, super, creepy, excited for Spring.

I'm excited for longer hours of sunshine. I'm excited for my bf's wedding. I'm excited for Easter...like ridiculous, way-too-obsessed-with-cutesy-chicks-and-ducks-and-rabbits excited.


And I'm really excited to make treats that can be shared with friends at springtime/easter themed parties.  (janelovesparties!).

Wow.  So much excitement right now...can you feel it?  OK, before I start totally creeping you out with my happiness about spring, check out these Mini Cookies & Cream Cheesecakes I made just for you! (less creepy now right?)

So make 'em, put 'em in spring colored papers, and share 'em with your besties...or hide them in your fridge and eat every last one...I don't tell you what to do...be your own boss! ♥xo♥
