Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

I found this Valentine’s Day idea in a Good Housekeeping magazine.  I was looking for an easy Valentine’s Day treat for the masses.  This was perfect!  Everyone at work got a piece and it didn’t break the bank.  The honey glaze was a unique idea and such a sweet addition.  If your work has less than 50 people, share this with your neighbors, too.  They will love you for it!
