Last night, my kids had an epic Halloween haul. It turns out our new neighborhood is some kind of Trick-or-Treat nirvana, and they came home with a combined 11-pounds of candy (not even kidding). If you have a similar situation at home, whether from your own kids or candy you have left over from handing out, check out this cheesecake recipe from Cakespy over on Serious Eats.
For a sweet treat that embraces the excessive sweetness of the Halloween spirit but also takes advantage of surplus candy (or the cheap prices of Halloween candy the day after), try your hand at this Fun-Size Candy Studded Cheesecake. A rich and creamy cheesecake gets a chocolatey upgrade from coarsely chopped candy in a variety of your choosing.
