I made this easy, no-bake cheesecake for a Father's Day dessert. Everyone in my family loves cheesecake, but some like it topped with just cherries, some like just hot fudge, some like it loaded up - everyone is happy!

In a mixing bowl, add the cream cheese and sugar and beat with a hand mixer on medium-low speed until smooth. Add the banana and vanilla and beat until combined.

3To make the Graham Cracker Crust, add all ingredients to a small bowls and stir to combine. Add cupcake liners to a 12-cup muffin tin. Add about 1 tablespoon of the crust mixture to each cup and press down firmly to the line the bottom with the crust. Refrigerate until ready to fill.
4To assemble and serve, add a scoop of the caramel sauce over the graham cracker crust and then top with a portion of the cheese cake filling. Top with cherries and drizzle with hot fudge and nuts (optional).
