Rated as 4.2 out of 5 Stars

"The trick to this tempting treat is pulling a toothpick through rings of melted chocolate to create the web effect. 'This no-bake cream cheese pie goes together quickly and tastes delicious,' assures Jan White, Plainview, Nebraska. 'It's fun to serve, too, because it never fails to draw comments.'"

  1. In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over water; let stand for 1 minute. Heat gelatin; stir until dissolved. Remove from the heat; cool slightly. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Gradually beat in cream, vanilla and gelatin mixture until smooth. Pour into crust.
  2. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and butter; stir until smooth. Transfer to a heavy-duty resealable bag; cut a small hole in a corner of bag. Pipe a circle of chocolate in center of cheesecake. Pipe evenly spaced thin concentric circles about 1/2 in. apart over filling. Beginning with the center circle, gently pull a toothpick through circles toward outer edge. Wipe toothpicks clean. Repeat to complete web pattern. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting.

I used a little plastic halloween spider as garnish for the top... everyone loved it!
