Philadelphia Cheesecake of the Year Contest! #CheesecakeoftheYear

Are you like me and you feel intimidated by making cheesecake? The honest truth is that I have never made one, but that is about to change because now Kraft has given me HUGE motivation to not only make one, but to come up with my own recipe to enter into their Philadelphia Cheesecake of the Year Contest!

I absolutely LOVE cheesecake! The rich, smooth texture just melts in your mouth and the number of flavours and varieties are endless. I've had two kinds of cheesecake that I would love to be able to replicate in my kitchen.

The first one is a simple cheesecake with cherry sauce spilling over the sides. Mmmmm...I can imagine the taste right now! A light and airy cheesecake complimented with a rich and sweet cherry sauce topped with some chocolate shavings. Is your mouth watering yet?

The second kind of cheesecake that was one of my favourites was a peanut butter flavoured cheesecake (they had me at peanut butter, but it got better!) with chocolate peanut butter chunks inside, topped off with a caramel sauce. For me, it's the sauce that pulls everything together. I have a huge sweet tooth so that sauce is what puts a delicious cheesecake over the top.

  1. Oh cheesecake - is there anything better than a rich slices of cheesecake? I just love how versatile it is - can't wait to see who wins the contest!

  2. I love cheese cake too I have never made one but I am excellent at eating them! You can never go wrong with the classic cherry cheesecake!

  3. I love that you can add any flavor with a brick of Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese and create the best cheesecake ever! Anything with chocolate will have my vote!

  4. Call me a naturalist, but I like my cream cheese plain to let that flavor come through on its own! I like to add the extra yumminess on top with some strawberries or turtle toppings. Of course, nothing beats a cheesecake made with Philadelphia Cream Cheese!

  5. Chocolate peanut butter chunks? Mmmmm .... that sounds good (always!) I've never made a cheesecake before but I must try it one day soon!

  6. I love oreo cheesecake - yummmmm

  7. oohh peanut butter cheesecake you say??? I could go for that!

  8. I am so chicken when it comes to making cheesecake too.....but this does seem like amazing motivation!
