Week #8 Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Today marks Week #8 of Pumpkin Fall Fridays 
and the first day of a week of Spook-tacular Halloween recipes! 

When I saw these Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars on Pinterest from My Recipes,
I was a little intimidated at first because 
they looked difficult to make - especially those cute little ghosts!  

But I as I read the recipe, I realized they were actually very simple to make! 
And they are just so gosh darn cute, I couldn't resist. 
I practiced a few ghosts on a plate before I tried it on the actual bar. Easy-peasy.
