Halloween is right around the corner to my surprise. The nice fella bagging my groceries reminded me. My mother-in-law made our little man a cute Yoda outfit and just between us she may have altered a dog costume but hey it’s cute. I guess I need to start on little lambs R2D2 costume, but it wouldn’t be Halloween if I didn’t wait until the last minute.

When chocolate meets cheesecake and the zest of an orange, combined with the simplicity of a no-bake, it creates the perfect festive holiday dessert.

Halloween for me is like the kickoff for the holidays. Once we get past Halloween time starts moving at warp speed. I think I’m ready…

Halloween also means candy. We love candy! However, I’m such a mean mom, I probably won’t let little lamb have any, but I’m not entirely a monster because I let her have some of this delicious orange chocolate cheesecake.

Seriously. My two favorite things chocolate and cheesecake with a little zest of an orange in this adorable orange jack-o-lantern.

Oh, did I forget to mention this delectable festive dessert is also a no bake? It doesn’t get any easier than a no-bake!

Orange jack-o-lanterns are fun and easy to create! Just slice the top off the orange, and then scoop out the inside of the orange, and carve a cute little face in the center!
