Take-out Tuesday, Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Candy Pastry

πŸŽƒ  Happy Halloween!  πŸ‘»

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  πŸŽ‰

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
