Conversation Heart Cheesecakes

Valentine’s Day (aka singles awareness day) is coming up, so I made the perfect treat for you to share with your friends or special someone! These mini cheesecakes are silky smooth and the vanilla bean paste really enhances the flavor. Add that buttery crust and I’m in heaven. Also, they’re just super cute.


To be honest, this is probably the best cheesecake recipe you will come across. If you want to make it simple, you can forget the words, and just add a dollop of whip cream. The light whip cream pairs perfectly with the cheesecake, and a sprinkle a little graham cracker crumb on top to step up the presentation!




¾ cup Graham Cracker Crumbs
3 tablespoons butter
8 oz cream cheese
½ cup granulated sugar
1 ½ eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
Food coloring
Chocolate for writing

  • Crush graham crackers in a bag, until it is very fine, measure out ¾ cup
  • Add the crumbs into the 3 tablespoons of melted butter
  • Add 3 tbsp of crust mix into the heart molds. Pack it down, and refrigerate it
  • Soften cream cheese and beat in mixer until fluffy
  • Beat in the granulated sugar
  • Add eggs to the cream cheese mixture
  • Add the sour cream and mix the ingredients together
  • Add the Vanilla bean paste
  • Dye the cheesecake mixture with the colors you want
  • Fill your cheesecake molds to the top
  • Give it a tap to settle the batter
  • Put the mold into baking pan with sides, and add water to the pan until it reaches halfway up the molds
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes
  • Let it cool, and then put it in the freezer to become hard. Then pop the cheesecakes out
  • Write the words on parchment paper with icing, let it dry, and then place it on the cheesecakes

Ta-da! Hugs to you this Valentine’s Day!
