  • 1/4 c HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 1/4 c Powdered sugar

1 ts Pumpkin pie spice
1 c Canned pumpkin

Prepare CHOCOLATE COOKIE CRUST. Increase oven temperature to 400 F. In

until well blended. Add pumpkin and eggs; beat until well blended. Stir in
small chocolate chips; pour batter into prepared crust. Bake 10 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 250øF; continue baking 50 minutes. Remove from
oven to wire rack. With knife, loosen cake from side of pan. Cool
completely; remove side of pan. Refrigerate before serving. Prepare and
garnish with CHOCOLATE LEAVES, if desired. Cover; refrigerate leftover
cheesecake. 10 to 12 servings.

CHOCOLATE COOKIE CRUST: Heat oven to 350 F. In medium bowl, stir together 1
cup vanilla wafer crumbs (about 30 wafers), 1/4 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa, 1/4
cup powdered sugar and 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) melted butter or margarine.
Press mixture firmly onto bottom and 1/2 inch up side of 9-inch springform
pan. Bake 8 minutes; cool slightly

CHOCOLATE LEAVES: Thoroughly wash and dry several non-toxic leaves. In
small microwave-safe bowl, place 1/2 cup HERSHEY'S MINI CHIPS Semi-Sweet
Chocolate. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 30 to 45 seconds or until smooth when
stirred. With small soft-bristled pastry brush, brush melted chocolate on
backs of leaves. (Avoid getting chocolate on leaf front; removal may be
difficult when chocolate hardens.) Place on wax paper-covered cookie sheet;
refrigerate until very firm. Beginning at stem, carefully pull green leaves
from chocolate leaves; refrigerate until ready to use.
