For the most part, I have a plan of what I'm going to post…for the most part. Then, sometimes I make something and that plan goes straight out the window. This was one of those times.
We have been planning on going down to Mr. Schwartz's sister or my sister (in-law) and brother-in law's house to watch the first Vikings game for a while. Things have been a bit let's just say "wild" at my day job so I hadn't put much thought in what I should bring. I don't like to show up empty handed. So, after we already ran all of our errands on Saturday I thought "crap, what are we going to bring to Jenna and Chris'? Bahhh my life is so hard why do I never think of things in the store!?" Then I saw a no-bake cheesecake mix and sprinkles sitting right next to it. Sure enough I had half a bag of white cake mix sitting on top of that. Hummm…what to do. MINI CAKE BATTER CHEESECAKES that's what. And TA-DA this recipe was born.
Oh, and it was a good excuse for me to do a giveaway…scroll to the bottom to check it ouuut.
check this recipe out.
And top with a little additional crust.
Do it. Word to the wise, whipped cream melts quickly, I didn't let it. I popped these in the freezer and when it was time to travel I packed them in a thermal bag. They made it safely and did not melt in the almost two hour car ride.

Mini Cake Batter Cheesecakes
1 Package Jell-O No-Bake Cheesecake
5 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons sugar
2/3 cup cake batter mix (either white or yellow)
1 3/4 cup milk (I used skim)
2 cups heavy cream (or whipped cream from a can)
2 tablespoons rainbow sprinkles
Combine the graham cracker crust packet with the melted butter and sugar. Place cupcake liners in a cupcake pan and press crust into the bottom of each cup reserving about 1/8 cup of the crust for topping.
In a large bowl, combine the cheesecake mix, cake mix and milk using a hand mixer. Once things are combined, spoon onto the crust on each cup.
In a sperate large bowl, whip the whip cream using a hand mixer. Spoon into a zip top or pastry bag and pipe on the top of the cheesecake.
Sprinkle remaining crust crumbles and sprinkles.
