Ingredients

Cheesecake Filling

  • 16 oz cream cheese softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Fruity PEBBLES™ cereal optional

Crust Layer

  • 2 cups Fruity PEBBLES™ cereal
  • 2-3 tbsp butter melted

Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp sugar

Instructions

Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.

  2. Use a food processor to pulse cereal for 10-15 seconds.

  3. Combine melted butter and cereal in a small bowl. Fill each pan cavity with one heaping tablespoon of cereal. Use a small cup, kitchen utensil, or spoon to firmly press the cereal down.

Filling

  1. In a large bowl or stand mixer, combine cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy.

  2. Slowly add in eggs, one at a time. Stir in vanilla; do not overmix.

  3. Fill cheesecake pan ¾ of the way full. Tip: use a cookie scoop to evenly distribute the batter.

  4. Bake for 13-15 minutes. Turn off the oven and let the pan rest for 5 minutes. Then, slightly open the oven door and let the pan cool for an additional 5 minutes before cooling to room temperature. Refrigerate cheesecakes for at least 2 hours before removing from pan.

Whipped cream

  1. Use a stand mixer to combine heavy cream and sugar on high until small peaks form. Pipe onto the cheesecake and finish with a sprinkle of cereal on top.
