Dulce De Leche Halloween Candy Cheesecake

As we move into the holiday season, and with Halloween upon us, a bounty of candy is growing in my kitchen. I have a collection of sweets that I have been gathering for the gang of trick-or-treaters that will make their way to my door on October 31st. In the meantime, my neighbor is having a little Halloween party for the kids on the block. She asked me if I would be able to make a cheesecake, and I had just bought this awesome cheesecake kit. I knew it would be super easy to whip up, and if I added a little trick or treat candy to the top it would feel like a combo between something semi-homemade and a fun Halloween creation. Happy Halloween!
