This post about Cheesecake Hacks for Easter is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Sara Lee Desserts, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #SaraLeeDesserts http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

I was just talking with my husband about how we have not been home for a major holiday in at least three years. He did not believe me until we went through each celebration. Not having family in town is really tough, and we usually spend our holidays traveling to them. An unintended consequence of all this travel? When I don’t have to entertain at home, I tend to get less creative with holiday food items. However, I am taking a stand this year by making some fun Easter cheesecake hacks. I am calling them “cheesecake hacks,” because with the help of Sara Lee Original Cream Cheesecake, you skip the major part of baking a cheesecake from scratch.

When you think of Easter, don’t you think of bunnies? What do bunnies eat? Carrots, of course. In only a few minutes, you can create these adorable carrot cheesecake slices to serve at your Easter brunch, or you can easily bring them to an Easter Party. Since the Sara Lee Cheesecakes are frozen, it makes it even easier as the chocolate will harden almost instantly.

No need to defrost this cake before decorating. As I mentioned above, the frozen cheesecake actually helps the process along.

Cut the cheesecake into eight, even slices. The box suggests four servings, but I like my carrots skinny!

Place each piece on a cookie sheet lined with parchment. You will have them sit for a few minutes while you make the carrot tops.
Place another piece of parchment onto a cookie sheet. Using melted green chocolate discs, create your carrot tops. Allow them to set completely. In the winter, this takes a few minutes. If your climate is warmer, you may want to place these in the fridge to help them set.

Next, melt orange chocolate discs in the microwave. You can place the melted chocolate in another plastic bottle or a disposable frosting bag with a small tip. Gently squeeze the orange chocolate over each slice. Allow each to set for a few minutes.

When the cheesecakes have slightly defrosted and your carrot tops have hardened, you can insert the carrot tops into the crust side of you cheesecake slices.

I told you it would be easy to make a yummy store-bought cheesecake into something even more spectacular!
