Cheesecakes are a wonderful addition to any celebration, year-round, and Halloween is no exception. Whether you’re looking for a dessert centerpiece or bars and bites you can share with all the fiends and monsters in your life, we’ve got recipes here for you. Add a dessert to your Halloween menu this year that doesn't come in a candy wrapper with these 27 festive cheesecakes—they’re ghoulishly good.

We’re all about the pumpkin for Halloween (have you carved yours yet?), so we’re putting it into a number of the recipes here, everything from basics, like our chocolate pumpkin cheesecake or our no bake pumpkin cheesecake, to more elaborate affairs, like our chocolate-pumpkin mousse cheesecake, our pumpkin cheesecake roll, or our pumpkin crème brûlée cheesecake bars. In case you’re feeling a little pumpkin-d out, we’ve also got a number of recipes that utilize some of our other favorite fall fruits and veggies, like our caramel apple cheesecake bars, our sweet potato cheesecake, or our sparkling cranberry cheesecake.

In another nod to the holiday, we’ve got a number of cheesecakes filled and topped with candy, like our Snickers cheesecake, our Twix cheesecake, our double Reese’s cheesecake, or our mini death by chocolate cheesecakes. They’re perfect for celebrating during the month of October, as well as being a great way to use any leftover Halloween candy the rest of the year.

Since it's Halloween, a time for tricks and treats, we’ve also got a few surprises in store with some of these desserts. Put your cheesecake in a “costume” with our cheesecake stuffed cupcakes, our cheesecake stuffed pumpkins, or our pickle cheesecake that’s actually a tasty dip in disguise. This good mix of horrifying and delightful will be welcome at any Halloween bash.

Cheesecake Pumpkin Bars

Our first version of this recipe used an entire can of pumpkin puree, because who wants leftover canned pumpkin to sit forever in the fridge? That was a mistake: It yielded gummy bars that were too dense due to the high moisture content of pumpkin. Trust us, and only use what the recipe calls for, then make our pumpkin cheesecake roll with the rest.
