We made it through Halloween, but that hasn’t weakened my strong desire to have Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING! Here’s a quick no-bake recipe for a fun Fall dessert that is a hit with both kids and adults. These Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Cups are light and fluffy, yet the chocolate cookie layers makes it addicting.
Often dessert goes uneaten at our parties as we have too much of it. However, these tasty Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Cups are the perfect portion size, so everyone can indulge! The best part is that you can whip this dessert up in less than an hour, and then park them in the fridge until it’s time to serve.
Hefty® Slider Bags make this dessert creation a snap.
I used the Hefty Slider Bags to crush my chocolate cookies, and I then used another bag to pipe in the cheesecake filling into small cups!
You Will Need:
- 2 cups crushed Oreo (or similar style) cookie crumbs – about 20 cookies
- 4 tablespoons melted butter
- 8 ounces softened cream cheese
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tub frozen but defrosted whipped topping (just pull out from the fridge for about 30 minutes)
- Chocolates for garnish – I used Hershey’s Chocolate Caramel Pumpkins
- Hefty Slider Bags
How to Prepare:
Take a Hefty® Slider Bags and fill it with the Oreo cookies.
The Hefty® Slider Bags have a MaxLock® track design , so it will have an extra strong seal. Using your hand or can, smash the cookie crumbs inside the Hefty® Slider Bag.
Combine cookie crumbs from the bag and melted butter in a small bowl. Set aside.
Mix softened cream cheese, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice and sugar together until blended.
Fold in whipped topping until mixture is all smooth. Place in refrigerator for 15 minutes to set up.
Fill another Hefty® Slider Bag with several heaping spoonfuls of the chilled cheesecake filling. Seal the bag – The Clicks Closed™ sound lets you know it’s closed! Using scissors, trim one corner of the bag so you may then pipe the filling into a dessert cup.
I found my dessert cups at Smart and Final, but you may find lots of varieties online at Amazon as well.
Place 2 tablespoons of cookie crumbs in bottoms of 8 glasses. Pipe some cheesecake mixture into glasses. Place another 2 tablespoons of cookie crumbs in glasses and pipe in remaining cheesecake mixture.
Top with pumpkin chocolate or you may just finish off with a little dusting of pumpkin pie spice.
Yummy, creamy and crunchy Pumpkin Spice!
Walmart is a convenient place to stock up on Hefty® Slider Bags. I found that Hefty® Slider Bags cost less than Ziploc® Slider Bags, when comparing the same type of bag (freezer/storage) and size (quart/gallon) of the closest price point.
