💕 Looking for a Valentine's day dessert that’ll knock your socks off BUT is as easy as…a ready made cheesecake? We’ve got you covered. Introducing a build-your-own cheesecake bar!
This dessert idea doubles as a fun evening activity, with endless ways to customize your cheesecake. We grabbed a pre-sliced Panache New York Style Cheesecake from Sobeys so that each person could build their own flavour combination.
Below are the combos we made, with some store bought and some homemade toppings, plus (of course) a show stopping CHUNK of your favourite More Granola flavour on top!
🍫🍊Chocolate Orange Cheesecake: with orange compote, chocolate shavings and Hot Cocoa chunks.
The orange compote can be store-bought or homemade. To make, heat 2 tbsps of water in a pan and add the zest of 1 orange, 1/3 cup of sugar, and a pinch of salt.
Tip: Add a spring of fresh mint for a delicious garnish!
🍎🍏 Apple Crumble Cheesecake: with a warm spiced apple compote and Nutty Crumble chunks.
This was one of the homemade toppings. We diced up 1 apple, heated a tbsp of butter in a pan, then added the apple along with a tbsp of brown sugar and a dash of cinnamon. We let this cook down for 15-20 minutes on low heat or until the apples are nice and soft. Stirring frequently. The cooking time can be increased/decreased depending on how firm you'd like your apple chunks to be!
🥧🍫 Turtle Cheesecake: with crushed chocolate turtles, chocolate sauce and Pecan Pie chunks.
🍮✨ Salted Caramel Cheesecake: with caramel sauce, flakey sea salt and Salted Caramel chunks.
We hope you enjoy this fun Vday activity everyone! We would LOVE to hear if you try it out, and what you created. When you have MORE. the possibilities are truly endless. ❤️
