There are certain simple ideas that never occurred to me, but once I see them, I just HAVE to try them. That was the case with these pretty berry cheesecake bites. I saw them, pinned them, then shortly thereafter, walked into the kitchen and made them. I didn’t have a big party to go to. I didn’t even have anyone around who would taste them. I just wanted to make these beautiful berry bites.

I happened to have lots of berries on hand after the big graduation party … all I needed was some cream cheese. A quick stroll through my fridge uncovered some of that, then I grabbed a couple things from the cupboard and got to work.

These little cheesecake bites are insanely easy to make and they taste SO dang good! I put the rest of them that were left after I ate my fill of berry cheesecake bites into a covered container, stashed them in the fridge and shared them at cooking class the next day. Everyone loved them … one gal even took a picture of them with her phone.

I would say these darling cheesecake bites really are best eaten right away or within a couple hours, but in a pinch, you can still enjoy them the next day.
