  • 4 packages cream cheese (8 oz. each) , softened
  • 1 can sweet potatoes or yams in light syrup (15 oz.) , drained
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1-3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick) , melted
  • 2 cups HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Chips (11.5-oz. pkg.)

Directions

  • 1. Heat oven to 350°F. Combine graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar and butter in small bowl, stirring until blended. Press mixture firmly onto bottom and 1-1/2 inches up side of 9-inch springform pan.
  • 2. Beat cream cheese and brown sugar in large bowl until fluffy. Mash sweet potatoes with fork; add to cream cheese mixture, beating until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, then vanilla and pumpkin pie spice, beating on low speed until all ingredients are blended, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.
  • 3. Place chocolate chips in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at MEDIUM an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, just until chips are melted when stirred. Stir 3/4 cup cream cheese mixture into melted chips until smooth (will become a pudding consistency).
