Caramel Cheesecake Bites is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious Easter Dessert I saw this recipe and decided to try it for our family Easter reunion. I was so amazed that the dessert finished before the main plates lol. Everyone loved them and they made me promised that I will do it again for the 4th of july. I decorated them with tiny bunnies from the bakery next door and I'm planning to decorate them with tiny flags for the 4th of july. One other thing, my mother and my aunt were able to eat them, they are diabetics and usually have to miss the desserts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheesecake-aholic! I am a cheesecake-oholic! I love everything cheesecake, and add in caramel - oh my! I was worried that not using regular cane sugar would change the taste of this long loved recipe, but I found it actually made it better! I tasted more of the other flavors using Truvia than I usually do using regular sugar. I found the flavors to be more prevalent and crisp. I loved it and will start trying it in my other favorite recipes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Caramel Cheesecake Bites One of the things I love is baking, and being able to replace Truvia in my recipes is wonderful. And Cheesecake is a favorite among many of my friends and family. I didn't say anything when I served these as dessert after a small dinner party. No one even knew they were made with Truvia instead of regular sugar. I'll be making this one again and often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love this Cheesecake! I love cheesecake but don'the love the calories. This is a win win. I made it for my weekly knitting night and the girls Loved them, once they found out it was half the calories they loved it more. I did change it up a bit, I'm not a Caramel fan, so I made a blackberry compote using truvia instead of sugar. It came out wonderfully!
