Hi there Eighteen 25 fans! I’m Jamielyn from iheartnaptime.net and I’m SO excited to be here today. I absolutely adore these girls and have been a “blog stalker” for quite some time. It was so fun to room with them this summer at EVO conference. We may have had a little too much fun… and a little too much sugar (nahh). 😉
Today I’m going to share with you a fun recipe: Candy Corn Cheesecake in a jar. They are SUPER yummy and adorable. I also made a free printable (link at bottom) for you all to enjoy! 🙂 I love this time of year!
- 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 3 Tb sugar
- 1/4 cup melted butter
Combine above ingredients in a small bowl. Place 2 TB of crumbs in each jar. I used 1/2 pint jars. Press firmly down with a spoon. Refrigerate for 30 min.
- 8 oz softened cream cheese
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup sour cream
- 8 oz cool whip -softened
Beat cream cheese until smooth, add sugar and mix well. Next add sour cream and vanilla. Mix well. Then fold in the Cool Whip. Place topping in 2 bowls. Add orange food coloring in one and yellow in the other. Spoon the yellow cheesecake into the jars and then layer the orange topping next. Then refrigerate for 2 hours.
I also added candy corns in the middle…gotta have candy corn! 🙂
Then it was time to package these cute little jars. I placed a cupcake liner under the rim and then cut out a cute little tag and tied it to the jar with orange twine. You can download the printable for free HERE.
These make great gifts for the girls you visit teach, grandparents, teachers and friends.

awesome, jamielyn..i'm so doing this with my kids!:)
About how many does this recipe make?
I would love to know how many 1/2 pint jars this made as well. I am going to do it for a Halloween baby shower:). Thanks!!!
This looks amazingly easy and delicious! I can't wait to make this!
Ok so I made this any with recipe as given there is enough "crust" for 12 but only enough filling to fill 6 1/2 pint jars with a bit of room on top. I would recommend putting 3-4 tablespoons of crust and then make 6 jars. I also used nilla wafers instead because I don't like graham cracker. Tasted fantastic!
Also I put candy corn on top an the color bleed off candy an formed a liquid layer on top. May work better between layers?.
