How To Make Mini Eggnog Cheesecakes

You could also easily make this recipe into mini eggnog cheesecakes or serve it in a mason jar as I did with the Strawberry Pretzel Dessert!

To turn them into mini eggnog cheesecakes, simply buy mini cheesecake crust cups and divide the filling between them.

You can also use silicone muffin liners. Put the liners into a muffin tin and press a graham cracker crust mixture in the bottom of each muffin liner. Top with the cheesecake filling, but only about an inch deep.

Once they’re cooled and completely set you can remove the silicone liners from the muffin tins and then pull them away from the finished mini cheesecakes for serving.

Because I purchased at Save-A-Lot, the ingredients were very wallet-friendly making each cheesecake I made cheaper than buying one premade – with the fresh flavor of homemade!

FAQs:

Q: Can I use a different crust for this no-bake cheesecake?

A: Oh yes. You typically won’t find anything aside from the chocolate and graham crusts at the store. However, you can easily make your own crust by mixing about 1 1/2 cups of any sweet cookie or cracker with 1/4 cup sugar (if needed) and 1/3 cup of melted butter. Press the mixture in the bottom and up the sides of a pie dish then proceed.

Our favorite alternative crusts for this no-bake eggnog cheesecake are:

  • Gingersnap
  • Animal cookies
  • Chocolate chip cookies

Q: Can I use a different pudding in this no-bake eggnog cheesecake?

A: Yes, but not all flavors of pudding go well with the flavor of eggnog. We’ve used vanilla, tapioca, and white chocolate. Still, our favorite is vanilla.
