Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Fudge Truffle Cheesecake

  It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me.  I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is a *Double Feature*  FUDGE TRUFFLE CHEESECAKE in CHOCOLATE CRUMB CRUST!!

It’s no big news to anyone who knows me that I can pass up cake and pies…for the most part. 🙂 But, stick a cheesecake under my nose and I’m in Nirvana. I haven’t met a cheesecake I didn’t like.  Add fudge and truffle in the title and I’m so there!! This cheesecake is rich and decadent and…okay, I am a writer and there aren’t enough words. You have to taste it and just experience the magic!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s.  Happy eating!
