Serve the perfect Halloween dessert — creamy cheesecake crawling with chocolate spiders

Halloween will be here soon, and especially for this spooky time, I've created a spiderweb double-decker cheesecake. It is moist, rich and very satisfying. The double-decker cheesecake has a crunchy crust and two layers of cheesecake. Everything is topped with white chocolate glaze and decorated with spiderwebs.

The creation of the spiderwebs and spiders is very easy and it doesn't require any special skills. I used melted chocolate to decorate my double-decker cheesecake. First I made circles around the cake and then I created spiders.

This cheesecake is definitely perfect for a Halloween party. Every guest will be surprised at how delicious and cool-looking this cake is.
