Mini apple cheesecakes made with apple pie filling and topped with white chocolate.
Mini Apple Cheesecakes
A few years ago I shared a recipe for mini caramel apple cheesecakes, because in case it’s not apparent I have a bit of an obsession with mini cheesecake recipes. I wanted to adapt that recipe with white chocolate instead of the caramel. My inspiration for this recipe came from an apple pie caramel apple. Have you tried one before? They’re amazing! It’s dipped in caramel then white chocolate and apple pie spices. I decided to skip out on the caramel for this cheesecake recipe but you always add both caramel and white chocolate on top. To make these I used my favorite mini cheesecake pan, cheesecake recipe, apple pie filling, and Nestle White Chocolate Chips. We love using these chocolate chips to drizzle over our favorite dessert recipes and the apple filling with the white chocolate was a perfect pair.
