TWIX Cheesecake Bites on a Stick

I found some coupons for TWIX bite-sized candies. And proceeded to buy 10. Okay 15 bags at Walmart. I’m stocking up over here people. In case there is ever a TWIX shortage, you know you can come on over to my house. Anytime. I’ve got you covered.
And once I had my billion bags of TWIX candies, I decided to throw a little get together with some friends, make some desserts with the candies and have everyone try them out.
I’m convinced that desserts always taste better in miniature form, but definitely always tastes best on a lollipop stick.
