  • 1-3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, melted
  • 4 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 can (15 oz.) sweet potatoes or yams in light syrup, drained
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1-2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) HERSHEY'S Cinnamon Chips


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 of electric mixer until all ingredients are blended, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.

3. Place cinnamon 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 (Mixture will have a pudding-like consistency).

4. Spoon half of cream cheese mixture into crust; spoon half of the cinnamon mixture over top. Swirl with knife or metal spatula. Top with remaining cream cheese mixture. Spoon remaining cinnamon mixture over top; swirl to outer edges of pan.

5. Bake 60 to 70 minutes or until center is just set.* Remove from oven to wire rack. Let cool at room temperature 1 hour. Loosen sides of cheesecake from pan by running knife around inside edge of pan. Remove side of pan. Cover; refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Cover; refrigerate leftover cheesecake. 10 to 12 servings.

* Cheesecakes are less likely to crack if baked in a waterbath.
