I have not looked forward to a movie as much as I have to see Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. No secret there! We’ve created so many fun posts for this movie which you can see at the end of this post! I’ve been saving up because I want to buy my daughter the Belle’s Musical Tea Cart next year for Christmas – it’s so gorgeous! This Beauty & the Beast inspired Cheesecake Shooters recipe takes only minutes to put together and adds a lovely dramatic flair for your next party!
Cheesecake Shooters Ingredients:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 TBSP sugar
5 TBSP salted butter, melted
6 plastic dessert shooters
- Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix until combined.
1 Tub of already made cheesecake filling
Food coloring- Red and Yellow
2 disposable pastry bags
- Split the cheesecake filling into 2 bowls.
- Add red food coloring as desired to one bowl and yellow food coloring to the other.
- Scoop each of the cheesecake filling into a disposable pastry bag – 1 for each color.
- Cut the pastry bag tip and twist the top so you can easily pipe it out.
Cheesecake Shooters Directions:
- 1. Add an inch or so of the graham cracker crust into the bottom of the cup.
- 2. Pipe roughly about the same amount of red cheesecake filling on top.
- 3. Pipe roughly about the same amount of yellow cheesecake filling on top.
- 4. Add another layer of red cheesecake filling on top.
- 5. Add another layer of yellow cheesecake filling on top.
The final step is the topping! There are several ways to do this depending on how creative you are at baking and the time you’re willing to spend on it! You can easily just add some whipping cream with edible rose flowers on top and be done with it!
