I learned an important lesson these last couple of weeks – always share the desserts that you make!! We didn’t share any of the cupcakes that were made in that last post, so I ended up eating a cupcake every day for a week. So good, yet so bad. Oops.
So anyways, here is something sweet to start off your week. Make some to share! 🙂
As per usual, my recipe came from Sally’s Baking Addiction. Great website for simple, delicious, and pretty desserts.
My modifications: I doubled the recipe to make a 9×13 pan and added a cup of peanut butter to the cheesecake batter. I should probably just buy a 9×9 pan so I can stop having to double recipes all the time. I also used all neufchatel cheese and it whipped up just fine. Then I topped it with homemade salted caramel (Recipe below) and melted some chocolate to drizzle on top. YUM.
Husband’s only critique was the the crust seemed a bit too crunchy, so he wanted me to try it with a brownie base next time. Pure evil genius! 🙂
Here’s the recipe for homemade salted caramel, adapted from here. It’s SO good and really easy! This recipe makes enough to fill about 2/3 of a regular mason jar.
