These No Bake Pumpkin Caramel Cheesecake Caramel cones are an easy and super handy treat when your little ghouls and gobblins want a quick trick or treat on the go.
Being a blogger poses a problem when it comes to seasonal cooking. We get to celebrate everything one holiday before it happens – like Christmas gets celebrated at Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving is at Halloween and Halloween is basically as soon as Labor Day strikes 12:01am. Or in my case, it was August. And it’s not just the fact that Halloween is right around the corner – I mean, it’s because it’s my birthday and I’m stupid excited about it – but because it means Pumpkin-ception is upon us. Raise your hand if you were throwing elbows at the old bitties at the Starbucks to be the first in line to get your mitts on a Pumpkin Spice Latte… There are no judgements here.
I’ve been really trying hard to temper my excitement over the pumpkin that is upon us – but I feel like I’ve been failing miserably. I’m not sure if an apology is in order, but I’m leaning towards not. I mean how can you balk at Skinny White Chocolate Pumpkin Creme Brulees and learning how to make your own Perfect Pumpkin Puree? That’s right, you can’t. See? And there is no shortage of fantabulous pumpkin recipes to be had! And I’m not the only one of this kick – it’s Pumpkin Week and the usual suspects and I are celebrating this versatile gourd and putting it to good use in everything under the sun, son.
These little no bake cheesecakes are fantastic because they come together in record time and you just have to let them set and chill before dolloping them into your waffle cone and drizzling them with oodles of caramel. This sounds all sorts of unfortunate, doesn’t it? Hashtag – awesome. Hashtag – Oh Em Gee. Hashtag – have you SEEN that new JT/Jimmy Fallon video? Basically, I will stop using hastags… rightttttt hashtaggg NOW.
