Raspberry & Blueberry Swirl Cheesecake Cupcakes

Pin It
Everyone loves a good cheesecake right? I've never actually made a cheesecake before but I lOVE cheesecake so I thought I'd try something new. You know me, I'm a cupcake kinda girl so I made Strawberry & Blueberry Swirl Cheesecake Cupcakes! This week at work I headed up one of our fundraising events, a baking contest, to support the Save a Child'd Heart non-profit group. We raised just over $1000! We had some great entries and I am proud to say that I took 2nd place with my cheesecake cupcakes! Only missed 1st place by 3 votes, drats! At least I know my little treats were nummy!

Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake Cupcakes



Directions:

To begin, preheat your oven to 325˚F.  Line the cupcake pans with paper liners. In a blender, blend your graham crackers until they are crumbs. In a small bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar. Fold your ingredients together with a rubber spatula until all the dry ingredients are moist. Scoop in 1 tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of each cupcake liner. To press your crust into the liners use something small like a spice bottle. Bake for 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.



To make the raspberry & blueberry sauce combine your raspberries and blueberries with you sugar (separately of course) and process until smooth. Pour your sauce through a strainer into a bowl to separate the seeds from the sauce. No one likes seeds in their sauce! Set aside.

To prepare your cheesecake filling, beat your cream cheese in an electric mixer until fluffy. Blend in your sugar followed by your salt and vanilla. Last, beat in your eggs one at a time making sure each is well blended. (really important that your cream cheese and eggs are at room temperature)

To create your cheesecakes, spoon in about 2 and 1/2 tablespoons of filling into your cups.

Drip three drops of your raspberry and blueberry sauce on top of your cheesecakes. Drag a toothpick through the top of your cheesecakes to create a marbled effect.


Bake your cupcakes for 22 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool. Once your cupcakes are at room temperature place your trays in the fridge and chill for 2 to 3 hours before serving. You can also freeze these and save them for later. If frozen allow 30 minute to an hour to defrost before serving. Enjoy.

  12. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
