Easy Mini Cheesecakes for Valentine’s Day

I don’t eat desserts every day, but there are sometimes when a girl deserves a treat, don’t you think?

Take Valentine’s day for example.

Is it even possible to celebrate the holiday without something sweet?

I don’t think so.

I am pretty sure it is a rule or something.
