Black Bottomed Mini Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites


It’s Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kiss time again! I quickly snatched up a bag at Target last week and was so excited to whip up another Fall recipes with them.

You are  going to love these caramel pumpkin mini cheesecakes. I wish I would have snapped pictures of my husband and boys fighting over the last few bites of these that didn’t last long at all. Animals!

I love a good Oreo Cookie crust on my cheesecakes. It goes perfectly with the pumpkin spice and caramel. Not a whole lot of ingredients in this recipe, which makes it all the more tempting. Hope you all enjoy!!




Black Bottomed Mini Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites

8 whole Oreos, finely ground in food processor

1 1/2 Tablespoons melted butter

8 oz softened cream cheese

1/2 Cup granulated sugar

1/2 Cup pumpkin puree (I used Libby’s)

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg

3 Litehouse Lowfat caramel dip (comes in a package of 6 20z little cups)

12 Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses, unwrapped

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine ground Oreos and melted butter into a bowl until well combined. Spoon into 12 mini cheesecake cups that have been sprayed with cooking spray. Press into the bottom of each cup so the crust is flat. Partially bake for 10 minutes then remove from oven.

2. In a stand or electric mixer beat the cream cheese,  sugar and pumpkin until smooth. Beat in egg, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg until combined. Pour evenly into the 12 cups filling about 3/4 way full. Spoon about a teaspoon of caramel into the tops of each filled cup and swirl with a toothpick gently. Bake for 25-28 minutes or until cheesecake is cooked through. Let cool completely.

3. Remove cheesecakes from pan and top each with a spoonful of remaining caramel and a Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kiss. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

12 mini cheesecakes


Have a wonderful rest of your week and weekend!!

    These were awesome. I doubled the crust and made a single of the filling. Wound up with 36 minis. I left out the kisses and used Smuckers Salted caramel topping. HUGE hit in out family. Will be making these again!

  5. Thanks a lot for sharing this with all folks you

    Hi, I dont have a mini cheesecake pan, I have a a 6 in pan, do you think I could use this recipe in that pan? For how long I should cook it? Thanks

  11. Sibyl

    Can’t wait to try these, but don’t know where to find the specified brand of caramel. Can I use my own homemade caramel sauce which is not low fat?

  12. Joy Mobley

    What are “mini cheesecake cups”? When i think of cheesecake i tionk of a spring form pan, but I’ve never heard of these, where do you get them? This looks like a great recipe!

  13. I do consider all the ideas you’ve introduced on your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are very quick for beginners. May just you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

  14. Magnificent points altogether, you simply received a emblem new reader. What could you suggest about your publish that you simply made a few days ago? Any certain?

  15. Kristyn

    Can you use muffins tins to make these or are the mini cheesecake cups required? Thank you! Thinking about taking these little guys to a Thanksgiving potluck.

  16. I love collecting recipes and this one is a keeper. I haven’t seen the Hershey’s Pumpkin Spice Kisses yet but I will certainly have another look around. Thanks so much for sharing. Mmmmm

  17. Sue M.

    Yum! I added to my favorites…great idea…plan to try it next weekend.I’m going to go find those kisses…hope they have them in our area. 🙂

  18. stephanie

    these are FABULOUS! everyone loved them! AND wanted the recipe! sadly, i couldn’t find the pumpkin spice kisses, so i used the caramel apple kisses instead and still a great success! thanks so much for all of your recipes! completely fail-safe and soooo yummy! 😀

  19. These look sooo good! I wish I could eat those pumpkin spice Hershey kisses…I’m so annoyed that they’re processed with peanuts/nuts. Oh well…I can still make these cheesecake bites! 🙂

  20. You made good ideas here. I done a research on the topic and learnt nearly all peoples will agree with your blog. Define your practice’s image for the current and prospective patients to identify with.

  21. Michelle

    how can I make this in a 10 inch pan b/c I dont have the mini pans?Would I double the recipe and if so how long to bake?

  22. Michelle

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone can tell me where you can buy the mini-cheesecake pans? I dont have time to order them. I would love to make this for Thanksgiving.

  23. Aeyoqen

    I actually made these for our Halloween potluck, but in “brownie” form because that was the only dish I had. Worked perfectly (I just had to double most of the ingredients), and they were super popular and delicious :]. Thanks for this awesome recipe, and for introducing me to pumpkin spice kisses!

  24. Jenean

    I am in the process of making these and wanted to send out a little warning. I baked my little oreo cookie crusts at 350 and at minute 8 had a smoke-filled kitchen. Four minutes worked just fine the second time around. I look forward to eating these yummy treats!

  25. Shirley Belt

    I loved these mini pumpkin-carmel mini cheesecakes. Am curious though, I have two size pans for cupcakes – one is mini tarts and the other regular cupcakes. Neither pan seemed the right size. Is there one special for mini cupcakes? Thanks!

  26. Jenny,

    Where did you get your mini cheesecake pan??? Was it Williams Sonoma? If so, does it have little holes in the bottom of each cup?? These look amazing! But I’m having a real hard time finding that darn pan.


  27. Pam in greeley

    I have tried to print the photo in color to file in my hard copy recipe notebook along with the recipe. The recipe printed fine, but for some reason I am not permitted to print a color picture of the finished product.
    Help! please.

    Caramel is so easy to make from scratch and tastes a million times better, and doesn’t have any of the preservatives and weird stuff that usually come in those pre-packaged things.

    plain white sugar, on medium heat stirring, stirring, stirring, until its all melted and smells delish. take it off heat, and whisk in heavy cream, a little at a time until when you drip a little into cool water, it dosen’t completely harden.

    give it a shot, I think you’ll find it totally worth it.

  29. Kimm Geria

    Sorry Jenny I have so many questions I just am having fun making your recipes :o) I made the pbutter ones today and want to make these but am having no luck finding the pumpkin puree. I checked Albertsons, Ralphs and Pavillions and even Target. Just clarifying not pumpkin pie filling correct? I found 1 can of the pumpkin pie filling (I didn’t get it). But everyone seems to not have it in yet maybe it’s a seasonal thing and they haven’t put them out yet? :o(

  30. Holy moly! I am drooling! These look amazing. I HAVE TO make them this fall. Maybe even instead of my traditional Thanksgiving Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake. Excellent recipe!

  31. I made these today Jenny & the are AWESOME!! The pumpkin spice kisses are the perfect topper. I also found candy corn kisses and topped a few with those.

    You always have the best recipes and so easy to follow along with!!

  32. Joy

    Jenny- I just happened upon your blog just this past week. I have been in a baking mood, so I thought I would give this recipe a whirl. Well, let’s just say mine did not turn out like yours. First, I forgot to spray the pan, so the bottoms were a little hard to get out. Second, I pulled them out of the oven too soon. Lastly, as I was putting them back in, I dropped them. Yep, all my hard work landed right on the kitchen floor. The dogs went crazy. I went crazy. Geez…Might try it again another time. Thanks for the recipe!

  33. Elisha

    Oh, thanks!!!Jenny, these look SO YUMMY!!! I just LOVE baking with pumpkin. I went to an invisalign course yesterday and the entire time I was sitting next to Heather from school (don’t remember her last name) and I didn’t even know it was her until the course was over! Crazy eh?

  34. Lyn

    Oh dear, those look fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipes. My son’s bday is next week & he loves all of the above combinations. I’ll make him 13 for his thirteenth bday.

  35. Maggie

    seriously how is it that you are baking these wonderful luscious concoctions all the time and still look so trim? i’m guessing you have will power of steel!

  36. Anything with canned pumpkin makes me happy (because I’m a dietitian and I can’t resist all that immune-boosting vitamin A) and anything with caramel makes my mouth water because it’s one of my favorite flavors. This recipe looks beyond yummy!

  37. OH MY.

    I only recently (within the last 2 weeks) have discovered your site. These last three recipes have put me over the top. I am NOT a sweets person (savory all the way, baby), but I am about to change over to the “dark” side! I decided I wanted to make the Ultimate Chocolate Layered Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Birthday Cake first. But, I forgot the recipe when I went to the store. I thought, “Oh, I think I can remember all the ingredients,” so in I went. Yeah, not. I came home with half of the ingredients for that cake and then half for the caramel apple cream cheese cookie bars! I guess both just fused their ingredients into my brain and now I need to make both – actually both of those AND the black bottom mini caramel pumpkin cheesecake bites! My waistline, my butt, my thighs, my stomach, and my tastebuds all thank you!

  38. Thanks for leaving a comment on my cupcake hero entry, very encouraging.

    These cheesecake bites is too much — caramel, pumpkin and so cute! They’re awesome.

  39. Just found your blog…LOVE IT. I am SOOOOOOOOO stinking impatient that I ran out to buy the ingredients for this, but am baking it in mini muffin pans. SIGH. Hope they turn out!!!!!! LOVE all your recipes!!!

  40. Kimm Geria

    Hi Jenny i want to make this tomorrow for a girls night out. I am thinking about making a whole one since I don’t have the individual mini pans. Will the quantities work for a standard size cheesecake pan?

    These look fab!

  41. Kimm Geria

    Where can I find the mini cheesecake pans? These look fantastic I will certainly be making them for one of my fall events. Thanks for sharing another wonderful looking recipe and I just adore caramel.


  42. Sarah M

    I LOVE your recipes and have used many of them. Anyway we could get more delicious healthy/light/figure friendly recipes in the next little bit? Everything you come up with is great…and I could use the help!

  43. Jody

    I have never even seen the pumpkin kisses until last week and I thought they looked disgusting, even though I LOVE pumpkin. But you just made a believer out of me and I’m off to buy some and make these little babies!!

  44. VirginiaG

    I’d love to make these but don’t have mini cheesecake cups (or 12 ramekins) – could I use muffin cups, do you think?

  45. Oh…my…gosh! These look awesome, Jenny! Usually I only bake treats when we’re having company over or if I know I can give them away to people…but if/when I make these, I’m keeping them all for myself. 🙂

  46. Pam Shank

    very wonderful..they look so like fall and I am sure they are delicious. will give them a try for halloween or thanksgiving events. thanks

  47. Sara

    I have ever seen these before! Where did you get them? Please answer, it looks so good!

    Thanks so much for the fun recipe; it sounds really tasty, and they turned out gorgeous!

    I love your blog!!!!!!!!

  48. Do you know if the Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses are available everywhere? When I was at Target a few days ago, they only had candy corn flavored….ick! I’m obsessed with anything pumpkin…..I’m drinking my coffee with pumpkin pie flavored creamer right now! If I find the kisses, I will definitely be making these!! They look amazing!

  49. Jenny,
    I just picked up a bag of the kisses and was wondering what to do with them. These little goodies will be perfect! Now I just need an excuse to make them. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  50. I am so excited – another recipe to use with my new mini cheesecake pan!! These little cheesecakes look fabulous. I can’t wait to make them – thanks!
