I made them, set them out, and within a flash they were gone. Just gone. Eaten all up. Before I could even relish in their beauty, just gone. These Pumpkin & Caramel Cheesecake Bites are so good I should have made two batches. Or five.  Make at Home Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites with Caramel Topping. Easy to make, Easy to eat. Play Dough & Popsicles. I do love cheesecake, more than one human should, but I was always afraid of making it. I tried the boxed mixes and they are alright, but nothing does justice to a fresh pan of cheesecake. I had always heard that it is difficult and never even thought of making my own. Until now. I looked at a few different recipes and combine them to make what I thought would be the best Pumpkin Cheesecake ever..and OMG! It is!! There’s a few steps but they are all super easy and the ingredients are pretty inexpensive, especially if you can find them on sale! The longest part is baking, but who would complain about the wonderful smell of warm pumpkin cheesecake filling the kitchen. The brown sugar in the crust makes it a little chewier than a traditional graham cracker crust. If you are looking for a crumbly crust, omit brown sugar. I used a silicone muffin tin so I didn’t need to grease them. If you are using traditional muffin tins, I would suggest greasing them before putting the crust in.
