Smucker’s Mini Raspberry Cheesecake Recipe #SpreadALittleSunshine

Disclosure: I was chosen and compensated for this post by Mom It Forward Blogger Network.  All opinions are my own.   

I am always looking for an easy, quick and yummy snack.  My kids come home everyday from school and immediately go straight to the pantry.  Sometimes it's fun to have something made up for them, like a special treat. These mini raspberry cheesecakes were perfect for my kids.  Since I used the new natural Smucker's fruit spread, they were super yummy!!  And they were so easy to make.  These will would be perfect as a little appetizers at a party or pot luck too!

Smucker's just came out with a new line of natural fruit spreads.  They are delicious and made with quality ingredients from natural sources.  There are 6 different flavors, Red Raspberry, Red Tart Cherry, Blackberry. Strawberry, Concord Grape and Orange Marmalade.

Mix the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla.  Then put onto the graham crackers.  I used a frosting decorating tip and bag to put on the cream cheese mixture.

Then I just put a little bit of the fruit spread on top.  It was so easy and quick with the squeeze bottle.
