Marshmallows, Candy Corn, And Chocolate Chips

Instructions for Halloween cheesecake treats:

Simply break apart the graham crackers into the square to create you jack o’ lantern cheesecake crust.  Then, grab a mixing bowl and mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar.  I kept adding the powdered sugar until it tasted sweet enough for our liking!

Then add several drops of orange food coloring.  Once that is mixed together well, spread on top of the graham cracker. Next is the fun part! Have candies divided into bowls for easy grabbing. 

Let your children use their imaginations to create their Halloween treat cheesecakes.

As you can see, some preferred more of pattern design, while my other ones made varying Jack O’ Lantern faces.  Each one unique to their personalities and all of them tasted yummy. Easy, right?!
