Halloween Cheesecake Parfaits
These Halloween treats are super easy, plus you can make them ahead of time so that you have more time for partying. Crushed Oreos are layered with a 3-ingredient no bake cheesecake that you can tint any color you want.
Servings: 6 Servings
- 2 8-oz packages cream cheese softened
- 1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla or 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
- gel food coloring black or purple*
- 1 cup crushed Oreos
- ghost peeps
- candy pumpkins
- graham crackers
- white or black frosting
In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, beat the cream cheese on high until it is fluffy, at least 2 minutes, scraping the sides and bottom well.
Add the can of sweetened condensed milk and vanilla and beat until smooth.
Add the food coloring. Use as much or as little as you want to get the desired color. (You will probably need more than you think, but start small just to be safe.) Beat well.
Crush the Oreos in a food processor (or smash them in a ziplock with a rolling pin).
In a clear glass, add layers of Oreo, cheesecake, and candy, if you want.
To make the graham tombstones, I just used a knife to cut a quarter of a graham cracker so that it was rounded on the edges. I added store bought frosting to a plastic bag and snipped off a tiny corner to pipe on the "RIP." Be sure to use Oreo crumbs as your top layer so that it looks like graveyard dirt!
Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
*I used black gel food coloring and it came out purple. Still a Halloween color, I'll take it. :) Gel food coloring intensifies after even just a few minutes, so if you're not sure about the color, give it a few minutes to see if it gets darker.
