I’m going to ask you what one of your favorite desserts of all time is and you will probably say… “cheesecake!”. Me too!! Adore the stuff. I adore cheesecake in all flavors and sizes and shapes and kinds.
THIS cheesecake is one of my favorite kinds to MAKE. And yes, that is totally different than my favorites to eat. Because, if truth be told, I’ll always order the hard stuff at restaurants. The recipes I know take too much time and energy for me to try at home.
This recipe looks SO HARD but is really SO EASY because we utilize hot fudge sauce to give us those pretty swirls. Which makes it absolutely perfect for making at home!
Yes, I totally get that there are chocolate crust recipes, and pecan crust recipes, and even gingersnap crust recipes but I’m still always going to prefer my cheesecake with the traditional full butter and graham cracker crust. It’s just the best.
We have a simple, classic 6 ingredient cheesecake for the base of this. Keeping it simple. Because I know that if you are anything like me…simple is the only way you’ll actually make it ;). And GOSH do I want you to make this cheesecake for your family and friends.
I want you to be a super hero!
Can I just say right now that there is nothing more glorious in the world than cheesecake batter, or cake batter, or cookie batter, or pie filling. That part when it is being poured or scooped or dolloped is my absolute favorite.
Totally strange. I hear you.
But I ADORE IT!
That swirl of the hot fudge sauce is my total favorite. It looks so very fancy, doesn’t it! (about now is when you might be able to guess that whenever I take those personality traits positivity and vibrancy are my top 2. I guess most of the world doesn’t gush about swirls and batter and such?)
Tip: Go all out for your favorite hot fudge sauce. Try a gourmet kind, a new flavor, or one with a shot of liquor? It will bring this to a whole new level of deliciousness!
Srsly, even I can’t believe that is this same recipe. I mean, it’s gorgeous!
Gorgeous doesn’t have to be time consuming or difficult.
