Halloween is fast approaching and I could not be any more excited! I love cute and spooky things all too much. With time always being so limited, I definitely can’t do it all. Knowing that you all struggle with the same thing, I love sharing simple ideas that are so EASY. This Halloween Candy Cheesecake is hauntingly simple with the help of The Cheesecake Factory Original Cheesecake found right in the frozen aisles of my local Publix store. All you need to do is thaw and decorate. That’s what I call winning Halloween! Let me share exactly how I did it.
You know that I’m a lover of foods from the freezer because they last longer and you can stock up so that you can whip up a meal or dessert in no time at all.

I can see myself stocking up on this simple dessert so that I can pull it out of the freezer and simply thaw it before serving. It’s that easy.
This easy cheesecake is the perfect canvas for pretty much any flavor add-ons for any celebration or holiday. For a wonderful Halloween twist, I chose some of the very best traditional candies. Chopped mini chocolate candy bars to sweet and sour gummy worms, I love the way this came out so much. Adding candy eyes was the final awesome touch that really brought the festive appeal to this yummy cake.
