This yummy Halloween-themed treat is super fun and easy to make with kids!
Ingredients / Supplies:
- 2 Pre-made Oreo pie crust
- 2 bars of regular Philadelphia cream cheese
- 8 oz container of sour cream
- 1 can of condensed milk
- Vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- Can opener
- Rubber spatula
- Butter knife
- Plain dark chocolate Hershey’s bar (large)
- Small Sandwich bag (plastic)
Preheat oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
To make the blending easier, use the butter knife to cut up the cream cheese bar into the blender. You want to use 1 whole bar per cheesecake you plan on baking.
With the spoon you want to scoop in HALF of the 8 oz container of sour cream into the blender.
Next you’ll need to pour HALF of the can of condensed milk into the blender.
Carefully crack the large egg to add to the ingredients.
Lastly, you want 1 TSP of Vanilla extract.
Start the blender. You want to make sure that there are no lumps left in the mix from the cream cheese.
Use the rubber spatula to go around the edge of the cup to scrape down and blend one more time to make sure you get everything mixed in.
Once that’s done, you want to pour that WHOLE mix into the pre-made Oreo pie crust and repeat steps again for cheesecake number 2.
Once you’ve repeated previous steps and poured the 2nd batch of mix into the 2nd pie crust, set your oven timer for 45 minutes at the same temperature and put your cheesecakes in the oven and wait!!
You want the top of the cheese cake to be a light yellow/gold color. Each oven temperature is different so you might need to add anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes to get the color you want. After you get the cheesecakes the color you need, turn the oven off and pull both cheesecakes out of the oven for you and let the cheesecakes cool for about 30 minutes.
Once the cheesecakes have cooled off a bit, break the Hershey’s bar in half and melt it in the microwave in a small bowl. The melted chocolate might be too hot to handle so pour that into the sandwich bag you have set aside. You’ll need to cut the corner of the bag after the melted chocolate is poured into it. *Note* you want just a tiny bit of the corner cut to avoid a mess. The next step is the spider web!
Begin with a circle at the center of the cheesecake and do a line from that circle, to the bottom. Then go around the whole cheesecake to make your spider web. Repeat with the 2nd cheesecake. Place plastic cover over the cheesecakes (each pre made pie crust comes with a plastic cover) and put them in the fridge to chill for a min of 2 hours. When we bake these cheesecakes, we do them in the evening and let them chill over night and they’re perfect the next day!
