Savor the allure and delectable flavors of autumn with our Chocolate Spiderweb Pumpkin Cheesecake. This culinary masterpiece combines the comforting warmth of pumpkin pie filling with the decadence of chocolate all nestled on a crispy chocolate wafer base. Each mouthful offers a blend of textures and flavors while the artistic chocolate spiderweb design, on top adds a touch perfect, for festive gatherings.



1 ¼ c chocolate wafer crumbs

¼ c butter, melted

3 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened

¾ c white sugar

3 eggs

1 ½ c canned pumpkin pie filling

1 tbsp cornstarch

1 c sour cream

2 (1 oz) squares semisweet chocolate

2 tsp vegetable oil


Set your temperature to 350°F (175°C).

Combine 1 ¼ cups of chocolate wafer crumbs, with ¼ cup of butter. Press this mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan.

Make the filling: In a bowl beat 3 packages of softened cream cheese with ¾ cup of sugar until it becomes smooth. Gradually add the eggs, one at a time. Beat enough to blend them together. Stir in 1 ½ cups of pie filling and 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. Pour this mixture over the crust.

Place the pan in the oven. Bake for approximately 50 to 55 minutes or until the center sets perfectly.

Add a topping: Spread a layer of sour cream (around 1 cup) over the warm cheesecake. Allow it to cool down slowly.

Create a spiderweb design: Melt two squares of chocolate along with two teaspoons of vegetable oil (using a microwave for one minute). Stir gently until you achieve a smooth consistency. Drizzle this chocolate mixture over the sour cream in an enticing spiral pattern. Use a toothpick to drag from the center, towards the edges creating a spiderweb design.

Completely cooled gently remove the side part of your springform pan revealing your masterpiece ready to be savored and enjoyed!
