Easter Eggs Cheesecake Bites

I was feeling quite festive this Easter and made several fun treats. The biggest hit were my cheesecake bites! (I mean who doesn't love cheesecake!?) They were fairly simple to make and quite delicious! The original recipe is on the Kraft website!

I used 2 different types of candy eggs on them. We started with the Cadbury chocolate eggs and then I found M&M peanut butter eggs so we had to try those out too!

1 cup graham cracker crumbs
3/4 cups plus 2 tbsp sugar, divided
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
3 pkg cream cheese, softened
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
1 cup toasted coconut (If you cant find the toasted coconut click here  to see how to toast your own)
Candy eggs

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Mix graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Press into the bottom of 18 paper lined muffin cups.
Beat the cream cheese, vanilla, and remaining sugar. Mix the eggs in one at a time, until just blended. Spoon the cream cheese batter over the crust. Bake 25-30 minutes or until centers are almost set. 
Cool completely, refrigerate for at least 2 hours. 
Top each cheesecake with 1 tbsp toasted coconut and 3 eggs. Voila! Easter Egg dessert! Enjoy!
