Strawberry Guava Tropical Cheesecake Bites are the perfect little treat to serve at your next luau. These fluffy bites of heaven are easy and inexpensive to make and can be made a couple days in advance which any party planner knows is a good thing!
A few years ago I shared my BFF Beth’s super easy and delicious cheesecake bite recipe. That particular recipe called for a maraschino cherry in the middle but since I was creating a Disney Moana inspired party I thought it needed something a bit more exotic. While cruising the aisles at World Market I found Strawberry Guava jam…I knew right away this was going to be my new inspiration. With just a hint of passion fruit, these cheesecake bites are sure to be a quick hit at your next luau. Lucky for us this recipe makes nearly 4 dozen bites…no one can stop at just one!
- 2 8oz bricks cream cheese, room temp
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 tbsp passion fruit juice
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 box mini vanilla wafers
- Jar of strawbery guava jam
- Mini cupcake liners
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place mini cupcake liners in mini muffin pan and set one vanilla wafer in each cavity.
With an electric mixer blend cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, passion fruit juice, salt, and vanilla extract until creamy and little to no lumps remain.
Fill each liner abut 3/4 full.
Place about 1/4 of the jam jar in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds then mix thoroughly till smooth.
Using a small spoon place a dollop of the warm jam in the center of each mini cheesecake.
Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool before eating.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Can be made two days before your party.
I hope you enjoyed my Strawberry Guava Tropical Cheesecake Bites inspired by Disney’s Moana movie!
