With the nights getting darker and a chill in the air—the stage is being set for one of the most festive seasons of the year. Autumn brings us Halloween and Thanksgiving. Comfort foods abound, and pumpkins, apples, gingerbread, and spices permeate our senses with tastes, sights and scents.

Kraft Foods loves this time of year too, and they wanted to help me get in the spirit of the season with some Kraft Foods favorites and a few brand new products.  If you want some great ideas be sure to check out Kraft Halloween recipes on their website.

They sent me five of their favorite brand products with a Halloween/Autumn twist – to help us get our family in the kitchen and prepare some fun and good food!

Some of the items we received were new Halloween flavors/shapes of JET-PUFFED Marshmallows. Ghosts, Spiced Pumpkins and these absolutely HUGE Pumpkin Marshmallows, which are so fluffy and fun to eat!  Have Fun with Your Yum by visiting their Facebook Community to get recipes, coupons, new product news and tips!

A classic favorite is Halloween OREO Cookies. See the Harvest Moon Phases project we did in our homeschool with those.

2 flavors of new VELVEETA Cheesy Potatoes. In our home there is never too much bacon or too much cheese…so the Bacon Scalloped variety, well let’s just say, we had no leftovers .

My favorite out of all the seasonal items though is the PHILADELPHIA Indulgence Cinnamon White Chocolate Cream Cheese Spread.

This stuff is addictive, like eat it out of the container with a spoon addictive (not that I would ever do that!). But I did make a recipe using it, that is fast and easy and perfect for any parties you might be hosting this season.

Mini Apple Cinnamon Cheesecakes

1 cup graham cracker crumbs
3 Tablespoons melted butter
1 container of PHILADELPHIA Indulgence, cinnamon flavor
2 eggs
1 – 21 oz. can of apple pie filling
1/4 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 375.

Mix graham cracker crumbs and butter. Press into bottom of 12 cupcake liners. (* If you make cupcakes or muffins a lot I would highly recommend investing in some silicone liners. I have a set of Le Crueset ones and they are fantastic for making things like this.)

Beat the PHILADELPHIA Indulgence with the eggs, and spoon into the crusts. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until set. Let mini cakes cool completely.

Combine apple pie filling and vanilla, and spoon over cheesecakes. If not serving right away, put cakes in a container and cover, and then top with apples before serving.

Because I halved the recipe, I had some extra PHILADELPHIA Indulgence Cinnamon left, so I added a few dollops on top of the apples for some extra sweet ‘oomph’ .
