    They tasted great but I had the same problem with the caramel sliding off tops. Very sticky mess. I followed the directions and would like to know why this happened.

    This was disappointing. The cheesecake part didn't have a great flavor and the caramel didn't stay in a nice clump like in the photo but instead ran off the cheesecakes. I won't make it again.

    These are delicious! My whole family raved about them--we are adding them to our holiday recipe book. Cute and little--fun for serving as part of a platter of holiday cookies.
