Take-out Tuesday, Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Candy Pastry

🎃  Happy Halloween!  👻

 

I wonder what they are going to be this year?

 

Will you be trick or treating?

 

 

Here’s a treat you can make with the leftover Halloween loot~

 

 

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Candy Pastry

 

 

Borrow some candy from your little trick or treaters and make a grown-up treat!

 

Start with a crescent roll dough sheet {or pinch the seams of the crescent rolls together to form a sheet} and cut it in half

 

 

You can use a square dish or a rectangular dish or even a parchment lined baking sheet

 

Place 1/2 of pastry in dish

 

 

Line the baking dish with parchment, it’s so easy to remove the baked pastry and your dish will stay clean.  Prick pastry all over and bake for 10-12 minutes until golden

 

 

Mix the cream cheese with sugar and vanilla

 

 

Luckily I had exactly 1/2 of a 16 oz. whipped cream cheese container so I was able to mix it right in the container, eliminating a step like washing an extra dish  🎉

 

 

Tip: freeze the candy for 10 minutes to make it easier to chop

 

 

Spread cream cheese all over baked pastry half in a thick, even layer

 

 

Cover with mini chocolate chips, then top with candy pieces

 

 

I used Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, but Snickers, or any chocolate candy bar would work

 

 

 

Place remaining 1/2 of pastry on top of chocolate, and gently spread with very soft butter {or melted butter} and sprinkle all over with sugar and bake for 25-30 minutes

 

 

Now the hard part, letting it cool!

While you’re waiting, here’s a fun little read about why Milk Chocolate is better than Dark Chocolate, embrace your inner Halloween child here

 

 

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Candy Pastry

  • Print

1 can crescent roll dough or sheet

8 oz whipped cream cheese, softened

4 T powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup Mini chocolate chips

12 miniature Peanut butter cups, chopped, about 3 oz., or 2 cups coarsely chopped candy bars

1 tsp granulated sugar

1 T soft butter or melted melted butter

Carefully unroll dough into 1 big sheet and pinch perforations to seal if necessary. Cut dough in half according to the size of your baking dish, rectangular or square.  Line dish with a piece of parchment and place 1/2 of dough into bottom.  Prick dough all over with a fork.  Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes until starting to turn golden.
Mix cream cheese with powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth.  Spread over baked crust in an even layer.  Top with chocolate chips and peanut butter cup pieces.  Put remaining crust on top of chocolate.  Spread  butter all over crust or pour melted butter over top.  Sprinkle sugar over butter.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.  Let cool 20 minutes before cutting into triangles, bars, or squares

 

 

Cut pastry into squares, bars or triangles, big or small

 

 

 

These triangles aren’t much bigger than a strawberry, practically guilt free!

 

 

 

Drizzle with chocolate or caramel if you’re feeling extra decadent~

 

 

Stay safe today

 

 

Don’t drink and fly!

 

May your day be full of treats and sweets!

    Happy Halloween Jenna! The miniature Reese’s cups wouldn’t last long enough in our house to make it into a sandwich 🙂 Looking forward to seeing what your grands, aka, ghouls and goblins dress up as this year. I could steal that sweet little Charlie Brown away. ♥
