♥SpOOk-tAculAR SpiDer Web Cheesecake in Five Minutes or Less♥

The pictured cheesecake took less than five minutes. Isn't it wonderful when you can impress with just minutes invested? During the holidays I always try to have a cheesecake in the freezer and some garnishes in the pantry for a quick, fun and delicious dessert to offer friends with coffee or tea.

Purchase your favorite chocolate sauce and cheesecake from your local bakery or grocer. I personally recommend Sara Lee’s Pumpkin Cheesecake. Also a New York Cheesecake is spook-tacular!

Place a small portion of the chocolate sauce into a plastic baggy. Cut a very small “tip” at one end of the baggy. Starting in the center of the cheesecake, create a spiral design onto your cheesecake. Once finished, take a small knife and gently pull lines from the center of the spiral to the outer edge. Continue all around your cheesecake. Once finished add a little spider or other favorite fall decorations! Enjoy!

Oh Mimi, I'm so-ooo ashamed! I LOVE to bake, and I have a BRAND NEW set of 3 cheesecake pans not even out of the wrapper, for over a YEAR now! I have a wonderful recipe that a friend gave me from her mother, and I just haven't made the time to make it yet! I don't know if it's because I don't have all the ingredients on hand, or that I think only for special occasions (then don't find the time!).. or WHAT the reason is, but I would LOVE to finally MAKE the time!.. and this spiderweb cake is certainly an inspiration and much needed motivation! ~tina
