|chocolate peppermint cheesecake from delish.com|
For several years now, while I've been busy at work, Sarah has taken over the roll of holiday desert baker and believe me, I'm not complaining! A few years ago she tried out a new desert recipe and I talked about it here. Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake. Oh my goodness! That cheesecake was so good that I've dreamed about it many, many times since. My mouth waters just thinking of it. Heck, I gain four pounds just thinking of it. It was SO FREAKING good!
Last year she tried to make it again but.... I don't know if she used a different recipe or if she fudged on the ingredients or what but.... Sorry to say, Sarah, it was Not the chocolate peppermint cheesecake we were expecting. It was good. I mean, there was nothing wrong with it, but it wasn't the FREAKING AWESOME cheesecake of the previous year.
This year, I'm hoping and praying she'll give it another try and use the "real" recipe without skipping or exchanging any of the ingredients because believe me, that original cheesecake was 25 pounds (possibly not an exaggeration!) of pure chocolate and peppermint bliss!
If you're wondering what to bake for Christmas this year, give this cheesecake a try. I don't think you'll be sorry. (Unless you try to eat the entire thing by yourself that is.)
