No matter your age, everyone enjoys something sweet at Easter! Here's an easy-to-make festive delight!

Mini Cheesecake Bird's Nests

1 cup Oreo crumbs

3/4 cup + 2 tbsp sugar, divided

3 tbsp butter, melted

3 (8oz) pkg cream cheese, softened

1 tsp vanilla

Milk chocolate blocks for shaving

54 mini eggs


Preheat oven to 325°F.

Mix Oreo crumbs, 2 tbsp sugar and butter. Press into bottoms of 18 paper-lined muffin cups.

Beat cream cheese, vanilla and remaining sugar with mixer until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Spoon over crusts.

Bake 25-30 min. or until centres are almost set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 2 hours.

Top each cheesecake with enough chocolate shavings to resemble a birds nest. Fill each nest with three mini eggs.
