Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a keeper Made these for Christmas and the caramel dab on top only stayed intact for 24- 48 hours, then it became runny and ran off the mini cheesecakes. Very disappointing since they didn't look like the picture anymore and were basically just mini cheesecakes without the caramel topping. They are good if consumed the first day, but the recipe didn't say that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy, quick and delicious I made these for a Anniversary/Christmas party. They were a huge hit and gone in no time. Easy to make. I increased the bourbon and used vanilla extract.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Caramel run off after a day The caramel did not stay on the top of the little cheesecakes. After about 24 hours it started running off the sides. If you are going to make this ahead of when you are serving them do not put the caramel on the top until just before you serve them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Winner! I made this for a dinner party and it was a big hit! I added some coarse sea salt over some of them after the caramel drizzle and it was delicious.
