Candy Corn Cheesecake FAQ’s
How do I know when the cheesecake bars are done?
Cheesecake will be done when there is just a small amount at the top of the pan that still looks “wet”. Remove it from the oven and allow it to cool. It will then firm up. Allow them to completely cool before cutting.
Should cheesecake be jiggly?
Cheesecake consistency should still be jiggly, but definitely not soupy.
