I saw this on the package of the Hershey Kisses Candy Cane flavor and had to try it.

It was very good! ALSO, very pretty!
I will make it again. I think it would be fun to make it at Valentine's Day, the 4th of July as well as Christmas!

I think it would be fun to try other flavors of these candies with different crusts.

How to Make Candy Cane Swirl Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cookie crumb crust.

    Crush cookie wafers ( 45 cookies).
  2. Stir together 1 1/2 cups cookie crumbs and 1 tablespoon sugar in medium bowl; blend in melted butter. Press mixture onto bottom and 1/2 inch up side of 9-inch springform pan. Bake 8 minutes; cool. ( I would recommend wrapping the bottom of the pan with heavy foil). These directions did not.
  3. Prepare cake:
    Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in large bowl until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Set aside 1/4 cup batter; spread remaining batter in prepared crust.
  4. Remove wrappers from candies. Place 30 candies and milk in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 50% power for 1 minute, stopping to stir every 15 seconds, until candies are melted and mixture is well blended when stirred. Gradually blend reserved cake batter into candy mixture.
  5. Drop candy mixture by tablespoonfuls onto vanilla batter. Gently swirl with knife for marbled effect.
  6. Bake 45-50 minutes or until center is ALMOST set. Remove from oven to wire rack. With knife, loosen cake from side of pan. Cool completely; remove side of pan. Cover; refrigerate until chilled.
  7. Garnish with whipped cream and remaining candies.

    Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
