A delicious Halloween themed cheesecake!

I was inspired by a Fave I saw today about a cemetery cake for Halloween, and got into a baking mood! After searching for a neat recipe, I came across the Batty Chocolate Mint Cheesecake recipe on the Food Network's website. It looks very cute, and cheesecake is one of my favourite desserts - so I gave it a go!

The cheesecake has a chocolate brownie base topped with a delicious creamy mint filling. I love how the green tint adds an eerie touch, and that it is topped with a storm cloud of whipped cream with bats flying over top. So delightful!

It has a prep time of 1 minute and a total time of 75 minutes. It's a beginner friendly recipe that serves 12 - 16. If anyone is interested in checking out the instructions, please click on the image up above.
