In lieu of the normal Halloween costume party, several of my friends have decided to watch a Dracula melodrama at a local theatre this weekend. Before the play begins, our gracious hostess has invited us over for some spooky snacks and libations. And because it's impossible for me show up to a dinner party without some sort of contribution, I decided to make this quick and easy cheesecake. The recipe and instructions are compliments of the Hostess Queen Martha Stewart. I'm always somewhat hesitant about no-bake cheesecakes, but it turned out really well and was ready to be chilled within a hour. The original recipe called for making gummy spiders, but I didn't really feel like driving all over DFW to locate the gummies called for. I think the plastic spider rings are a great alternative, and will be fun to wear after taken off the cake. (You can guarantee I'll have one on!)
...and apparently the apocalypse is upon us, because I will actually be wearing a costume this Halloween. I am making my annual escape to suburbia for Halloween and will be attending a costume party. It really may be the end of the world! :)
Happy Halloween everyone! Be safe!
