Mini Halloween Pumpkin Cheesecakes!

Happy Halloween!

I'm bringing these delightful treats into school to share with the fabulous 8th grade team I get to work with this semester! I have learned so much from them and I am excited to share these great Halloween treats.  Here's to a fun Halloween...enjoy everyone!

Mini Halloween Pumpkin Cheesecake (adapted from Yummy Mummy Kitchen)

15 oreos
16 oz light cream cheese
2 eggs
1 cup pumpkin
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
Chocolate Ganche:
1/4 cup half and half
8 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 300, line a cupcake pan with foil liners, and place the cookies in the cupcake pan.
2. In a large bowl, beat the rest of the ingredients together until well combined.  Pour the batter into the cupcake wells until they are 3/4 full.  Bake for 20 minutes. The middles should be set.  Let cool
3.  Make the spiderwebs: In a double boiler, melt the chocolate with the half and half until well combined and smooth.  Place in a plastic bag and cut off the tip of the bag.  Draw circles with the chocolate on the cooled cheesecakes and, using a toothpick, drag the toothpick through the chocolate circles to make the webs!

Enjoy :)
