I love nothing more than taking my son Oliver Trick or Treating.  Seeing his eyes light up with every drop in his bucket, and hearing him proudly exclaim “I’m a clone trooper!” to every neighbor.  It makes my heart smile.  But with that fun filled night comes loads and loads of candy I end up hiding from his greedy little hands.  Not so fun.

So, in order to ease his pain he helped me with this one.  I chopped up the candies that he chose and he delightfully sprinkled them all over the cheesecake batter.  We also added Oreos because well, it’s Oreos.  Then drizzled crazy amazing salted caramel sauce over the just baked goodness.  I promised him a bar in exchange for his sacrifice. I’d say he was pretty happy.
