Try this delightful candy corn cheesecake for your next holiday party! I'll even show you how to make your own special pan out of stuff you have around the house.
While candy corn may only be available around Halloween, this no-bake cheesecake can be made all year round. Even though it tastes like cheesecake, each slice looks like one giant candy corn - which is even better in my opinion. But if you really want it to taste like candy corn, try adding a ton of corn syrup - I bet that would work!
Step 1: Materials & Ingredients
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (this is about 3 shy of a standard sleeve)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
5 tablespoon butter, melted
16 oz cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup sugar
Yellow food coloring
Red or orange food coloring
8" or 9" springform pan
Two other plastic or aluminum containers that can be made into smaller circle insets
Step 2: Make the Pan
I cut apart my plastic containers and overlapped them until I felt they were the right sizes.
Then I clipped them together with a small binder clip while I secured the edges with packing tape.
You can also buy what's known as a "checkerboard pan" which does the same thing, but it's like $30, and c'mon, this is Instructables, man!
