Innocents are snared easily by a ganache spiderweb. Spun by a gumdrop spider with limber licorice-string legs, the web is draped over a dangerously addictive and creamy no-bake cheesecake. Candy Spiders make a creepy garnish.

    I made this today and it came out great. Instead of lemon juice I used Vanilla extract. It tastes really good with the vanilla. I would recommend this recipe.

    My photo shows the wafers that can be used - but I'm sure there are tons of others. Haven't tried this yet, but looks great - maybe with some lil turkeys for thanksgiving dessert!

    This is THE BEST cheesecake I've ever made or eaten! This was such a success, I am thrilled to have found this recipe. I made it into cupcakes and it makes a lot! I didn't use all of it, but I think it would have made around 36-42 regular sized cupcakes. The ganache looked amazing and was so easy!

    I cannot seem to find the chocolate wafers this year, I plan to substitute w/ choc. graham crackers. Do I have to freeze the cake? Is this what makes the sugar dissolve properly? ususally no bake cheesecake recipes call for powdered sugar, so I am concerned the sugar will make the cake grainy?? Any suggestions or advice?

    It's a real yummy cake especially with the oreo crust. I had it refridgerated overnight and later freeze it for an hour so that the middle is perfectly firmed before cutting it. It's a favourite!

    Wow this was soooo yummy! I made some changes... and I don't have enough room to write them all here! Used Oreos for the crust and nothing else, made mini cheesecakes in cupcake cups instead of a large cheesecake. Email me if you want details. :) Overall fabulous!!! brookesummer@gmail.com
