3tablespoonheavy cream(divided 2 tablespoon and 1 tbsp)
1 ozwhite candy melts
sprinkles or tiny candies
broken candy canes***optional
8mini peanut butter cups***optional
Remove FROZEN Sara Lee Cheesecake from it's packaging and cut into eight equal slices.
Place the cheesecake slices on a wire rack over paper or a baking sheet (anything to keep your counter clean will do).
Add 2 tablespoon of heavy cream to 4 ounces of green candy melts in a microwave safe container (I suggest a glass measuring cup). Heat for 20 seconds and stir. Repeat for 10 seconds. You are just looking for partially melted wafers. Stirring in the hot cream will melt them fully without overheating which will break the candy and make it grainy.
Scoop a dollop on each slice and spread to edges. Do the tree peak first and finish covering each slice before moving to next one.
Add 1 tablespoon of heavy cream to 1 oz of white candy wafers. Melt as above, but this will melt even faster! Take a fork or chopstick dunk in ganache and drizzle back and forth over the tree to create a garland pattern. Decorate with sprinkles or candies.
If you opt to add the bottoms, break straight pieces of candy cane to about 1 ½ inches long. Dunk one end in very hot water for a few seconds then insert into a mini peanut butter cup. Stick the other side into the wide end of cheesecake slice to create trunk and stand.
