"The Ring of Doom" Cheesecake with Reese's pieces chocolate Bark

Picture of
One does not simply... make orange cheesecake!
However, since it's Halloween time I've decided to make an exception. This is a NY style cheesecake dyed orange with a black swirl. Sounds good but I wanted more PRECIOUS chocolate. The "bark" is made from white chocolate melts that came in the color black and I added some Halloween sprinkles, candy eyes, and my favvvvv Reese's Pieces. 

Sure to delight your guests at a party and give your taste buds a dangerous trip to candy land. 

---Everything you will need in a nutshell---


• 2 cups of gram cracker crumbs.
• 2 tablespoons butter, melted
• 9" spring form pan (note: you do not have to use a spring form pan, but your finished product crust will be thicker)
• A large sheet of aluminum foil. Enough to cup the bottom of the 9" pan.


• A large bowl
• 4 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, room temperature
• 1 1/2 cups white sugar
• 3/4 cup milk
• 4 eggs
• 1 cup sour cream
• 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
• 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
• Orange and black food coloring.
• two separate mixing bowls for the two different colors


• 1 pound of white chocolate melts dyed black.
• Fun Halloween sprinkles
• Your favorite candy. For me I choose Reese's Pieces because it won't overpower and will add to the flavor of the bark and cheesecake.
• wax paper
• large cooking sheet

I never would have guessed the shape of the black filling was made this way...
