Easy Dessert Bar Idea

I love going to parties where you can personalize your dessert and make your own toppings.  I have a great recipe for individual mini cheesecakes and I was hosting a county Farm Bureau Board Meeting for a group, so I decided to make a cheesecake toppings bar.  The first person to test it out was my son.  He didn’t think he liked cheesecake until he could choose any toppings he wanted.  His favorite personal cheesecake was loaded with chocolate chips, pretzels, and marshmallows!

Easy Cheesecake Topping Ideas

Mini cheesecake toppings can be super easy.  We used mini chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, pretzels, chocolate syrup, mini marshmallows, strawberry dessert topping, cherry pie filling, blueberry pie filling, really any flavor of pie filling that you enjoy would be great.

I love the chocolate and peanut butter combination and my husband enjoys pie filling.  Whatever toppings you choose I hope you enjoy the mini cheesecakes as much as we do!
