  1. I love cheesecake. I love any dessert that has cream cheese in it. Throw in chocolate and I’m in heaven! This sounds soooooo good!

    1. With you there! My husband is not a fan for cheesecake (silly man, more for me!) but all of my kids love it. I’m not much for cake so this is as close as I get to making something cake(y). Sooooo good. Great to bring to BYO parties.

  2. Good Morning,
    This is an easy, have to try recipe, for sure. Thank you for sharing and have a great weekend.

  3. Karen,
    This is my type of recipe. I might actually make them for a group! I definitely saved this recipe.

  4. My niece is going to love this one! As will my DIL!
    I’m like your husband 😉
    Thanks, Karen!
