How to Make No-Bake Candy Corn Cheesecakes:
Making these Candy Corn Cheesecakes is a breeze, especially since they are no-bake.
1. Prepare your muffin pan by lining it with cupcake liners for easy removal.
2. Crush the Golden Oreos using a food processor or a rolling pin and a ziploc bag.
3. Transfer the Oreo crumbs to a medium bowl and mix them with melted butter until they resemble wet crumbs.
4. Measure out 1 tablespoon of the Oreo mixture and press it into the bottom of each cupcake liner.
5. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine softened cream cheese, sugar, heavy whipping cream, honey, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.
6. Divide the cheesecake batter equally between two bowls. Tint one bowl with orange food coloring and the other with yellow food coloring. Stir to combine thoroughly.
7. Pour one spoonful of yellow cheesecake batter into each cupcake liner, filling it about halfway. Follow up with a spoonful of orange batter and spread it evenly.
8. Chill the entire pan in the fridge for 2-4 hours or until set.
9. Just prior to serving, make the whipped cream by combining heavy cream and powdered sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. Whip on high speed until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip.
10. Pipe a medium-sized mound of whipped cream on each cheesecake.
11. Top with Halloween sprinkles or decorations of your choice.
