  Normally on New Years Eve my husband & I are bums & in bed before the ball drop lol this year we had a couple friends over to ring in the New Year. Brycen woke up at 10:30 & stayed up to ring in the New Year with us & Aiden was a party animal & was up till almost 2am wow! Lol but hey once a year whatever goes haha! It was nice to stay up & enjoy some company but I tell you we have been paying for it sleep wise lol finally today I think we have caught up on our sleep my hubby & I joke were getting old but I think were just so used to the family life we just can't handle the party hours.

Mini cheesecakes



  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 12 bite-size peanut butter cups


  • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or almond extract
  • 2 eggs


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place a paper cupcake liner in each cup of a standard muffin pan.

To make crust, in a bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter until crumbs are moistened. Press crust into bottom of each muffin cup. Put 1 peanut butter cup into the center of each crust.

Beat cream cheese with a handheld electric mixer until fluffy. Add sugar, flour, and vanilla, beating well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Spoon cream cheese mixture over peanut butter cups and graham cracker crusts. Bake until just set, about 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely before serving.
