Select All
Step 1
Heat oven to 350°F.
Step 2
Beat cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating on low speed after each just until blended.
Step 3
Place 1 wafer in each of 12 paper-lined muffin cups; cover with cream cheese batter.
Step 4
Bake 20 min. or until centres of cheesecakes are almost set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 2 hours.
Step 5
Meanwhile, tint remaining sugar with food colouring. (See tip.) Melt chocolate as directed on package. Add to noodles in medium bowl; stir to evenly coat. Shape into 12 nests, using 2 Tbsp. for each. Cut triangular piece from each marshmallow for the bird's beak; dip sticky side in coloured sugar. Place 3 beaks in each nest.
Step 6
Top cheesecakes with nests just before serving.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
How to Tint Sugar
Add food colouring to sugar in resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Shake bag until sugar is evenly tinted. Use more food colouring for a darker shade and less colouring for a lighter shade.
