    1 c Vanilla wafer crumbs
    1/4 c Hershey's cocoa
    1/4 c Powdered sugar
    1/4 c Butter; melted

    24 oz Cream cheese; (3 packets)
    - softened
    1 c Sugar
    3 tb All-purpose flour
    1 ts Pumpkin pie spice
    1 c Canned pumpkin puree
    4 Eggs
    1 1/2 c Mini chips semi-sweet
    - chocolate
    Chocolate leaves **

    * CHOCOLATE COOKIE CRUST: Heat oven to 350ºF. In medium bowl, stir
    together 1 cup vanilla wafer crumbs (about 30 wafers), 1/4 cup
    HERSHEY'S Cocoa, 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1/4 cup melted butter.
    Press mixture firmly onto bottom and 1/2 inch up side of 9"
    springform pan. Bake 8 minutes; cool slightly.

    Increase oven to 400ºF. In large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar,
    flour and pumpkin pie spice until well blended. Add pumpkin and eggs;
    beat until well blended. Stir in small chocolate chips; pour batter
    into prepared crust. Bake 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to
    250ºF; continue baking 50 minutes. Remove from oven to wire rack.
    With knife, loosen cake from side of pan. Cool completely; remove
    side of pan. Refrigerate before serving. Prepare and garnish with
    CHOCOLATE LEAVES, if desired.

    ** CHOCOLATE LEAVES: Thoroughly wash and dry several non- toxic
    leaves. In small microwave-safe bowl, place 1/2 cup HERSHEY'S MINI
    CHIPS Semi-Sweet Chocolate. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 30 to 45 seconds
    or until smooth when stirred. With small soft-bristled pastry brush,
    brush melted chocolate on backs of leaves. (Avoid getting chocolate
    on leaf front; removal may be difficult when chocolate hardens.)
    Place on wax paper-covered cookie sheet; refrigerate until very firm.
    Beginning at stem, carefully pull green leaves from chocolate leaves;
    refrigerate until ready to use.
