  1. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, yogurt, and vanilla until smooth. Fold in whipped topping until thoroughly combined.
  2. Spoon 1 teaspoon of graham cracker crumbs into each mini party cup. Using a piping bag or a spoon, fill cups with cream cheese mixture. Lightly sprinkle cream cheese mixture with remaining graham cracker crumbs and top each with a cherry.
  3. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until ready to serve.
Better-for-You Tip:  Rumor has it that when Santa’s red velvet suit gets snug, Mrs. Claus switches from traditional cheesecake to these fun-to-eat cheesecake shooters. Each one is perfectly portioned and has less than 75% of the calories and fat of a traditional piece of cheesecake. And since this recipe makes a bunch, it’s nice to know they freeze well. When you get the hankering for something special, just let them thaw for 30 minutes and dig in. (Well, that’s what we hear Santa does.)
