Gluten Free Nacho Cheesecake Recipe

Gluten Free Nacho Cheesecake Recipe

If you are planning a Halloween party this year, I have another treat we featured in Simply Gluten Free Magazine – this gluten free Nacho Cheesecake recipe. This is so fun to make and even more fun to serve!

In our Trick or Treat? feature of the September/October issue of the magazine we had recipes designed to fool the eye – all the appetizers were meant to look like desserts and the desserts like appetizers. It was such a fun party to create.

Gluten Free Halloween Party

Befitting of Halloween, this version of nacho cheesecake is a bit ghoulish as well. It has worms crawling through and chopped up bears scattered over the top – we used Surf Sweets allergen-free gummy worms, gummy bears, and jelly beans to take the place of the typical peppers and tomatoes one would put on “normal” nachos.

Plan ahead if you are making this recipe – it needs to chill for at least 2 hours in the fridge, but I think it is at its best when it spends a good day in the fridge before serving.

This recipe is one that fools the eye but pleases the palate!
