|Chocolate Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifle|

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup pure pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 large tub (12 oz.) whipped topping, thawed, divided in half
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
|In a medium bowl, combine chocolate cookie crumbs and butter. Transfer into a trifle dish or large glass bowl. Gently press down crumbs to form an even layer of crust.
In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth.
Add pumpkin, vanilla, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice. Beat until well combined and creamy.
Use a spatula to fold in half of the whipped topping. Gently combine ingredients until smooth.

|I love pumpkin cheesecake but could never get it just right when baking it. This is more simple and is equally delicious. Plus, I incorporated chocolate, because I'm a chocoholic.|
