When I saw these little conversation heart cheesecakes at Hungryhappening I knew I had to make them as they are a sweet reminder of my childhood. Oh, I used to love those little Lovehearts candies! They were a little chalky but they were my favorites! My husband loves them too. He is a candy monster. Anyway, I must say I love love love these cheesecakes.

1. Mix Graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon and butter and place a spoonful on the bottom of each of a silicon heart-shaped mold. Press them down to make crust. Refrigerate until needed later.   

2. Combine the rest of the ingredients (except food coloring) in a big bowl. Mix well. Divide into several portions and add food coloring.



3. Pour the colored fillings into the mold, and bake them in water bath for 20 to 25 minutes



4. Don't bake them longer then 25 minutes(I did for the first batch) the top will crack if they are over baked. When they look like this, they are done.Take them out and let them cool at room temperature for an hour. Then pop them into the freezer for 1-2 hours.

  
5. Pop those cuties out. Paint sweet sayings on using a paintbrush and food coloring.


6. Take a proud photo of yourself ! And feed them to your sweetheart!

Husband Says: "Proud photo indeed. These were awesome. I had one each night the first two nights she made them. Talk about a treat. See the joy in my face as I eat em? Yah, good stuff. Super stoked she found this recipe, and these are probably the best desserts she's made yet. Props to Hungry Happening blog for coming up with this, and equal and more props to Carmen for making them for us! Husband thumbs up."
