Costco is a haven for all things holiday — mini gingerbread cakes, anyone? However, the bulk retailer has certainly outdone themselves this time, according to a post from @costcobuys. A festive Christmas Tree Cheesecake from Junior’s is now available at the store and it’s about to be the most perfect addition to your holiday dessert spread.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Junior’s, the New York and Connecticut-based restaurant chain has been serving iconic cheesecakes since 1950. Their classic New York cheesecake being the most popular, the brand also boasts flavors such as apple crumb, Oreo, golden fudge, strawberry, and pumpkin pie.

This Costco special is Junior’s classic New York-style cheesecake in the shape of a Christmas tree, covered in chocolate ganache and red and green sprinkles. The Instagram account user wrote that the dessert is “as cute as it is delicious” and is currently selling for $25.99, although prices may vary depending on location. You also may want to call your local warehouse ahead of time to make sure they have these in stock before you make the trek to the store.

According to the Junior’s website, their cheesecakes will last up to seven days in the refrigerator and six months in the freezer (so you can keep some on hand for any dessert emergencies). Junior’s also suggests serving the cake at room temperature. If it’s frozen to start, defrost in the fridge overnight and then leave it on the counter about three hours before serving. Dip a knife in hot water to slice the cake for a smooth cut.

With Christmas just around the corner and both the adorableness and deliciousness of this confection, you’ll want to run to your local Costco to snag a cake before they sell out. Dessert doesn’t get much easier than this, plus you’ll certainly be the most popular person at the party if you show up with a Christmas tree cheesecake in hand.
