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!

Candy corn cheesecake w/ free printable


  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 Tb sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 8 oz softened cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 8 oz cool whip -softened


  1. Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melter butter in a small bowl. Place 2 TB of crumbs in each jar. I used 1/2 pint jars. Press firmly down with a spoon. Refridgerate for 30 min.
  2. 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.


Press down graham cracker crumbs in your jar with a spoon. :)

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.

    How cute is that?!? And I love that you tied it all in with the candy corn color tag, and then that candy corn cupcake liner (um, talk about easy, no cutting a circle of paper!).
    Great work!

    very pretty dessert and equally lovely tag! i must confess, i have never made a cheesecake that wasn’t baked, but this recipe is tempting me to try the no-bake route!

    We tried this recipe but it was not as thick looking as yours. I’m wondering if something is missing in the recipe? We added a box of Cheesecake flavored Jell-O pudding mix and it thickened it all up, so all’s good.

      Hmmm…maybe try refrigerating it longer next time! It is supposed to be pretty thick! That is a great idea to add the cheesecake pudding mix!
