Conversation Hearts Cheesecake

These little bad boys are to die for! They look exactly like a Conversation Heart and taste amazing. So get creative and transform the traditional round cake into a candy-themed heart. This recipe is courtesy of Hungry Happenings.
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Food coloring: pink, purple, yellow, green, red and blue

You will also need a heart-shaped silicon mold, fine tip paint brush and roasting pan.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Prepare your water bath for the cheesecakes by lining a pan with enough water to fill up halfway to the sides of the heart molds. Combine graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon and melted butter, stirring until it looks like sand. Spoon out a tablespoon of crumb mixture into each heart cavity and press the crumbs down firmly, making the crust even. In a bowl, beat the cream cheese on medium high until smooth. Add sugar and beat for one minute. Add eggs and beat until creamy. Next, add sour cream and vanilla and mix just to combine. Equally divide the filling among six bowls and add food coloring to each bowl to create the colors you want. Pour colored cheesecake filling into the heart molds. Set the mold into the water bath and bake for 15-28 minutes. Once cool use food coloring and fine tip paintbrush to paint conversation heart sayings in all capital letters.
