If you’ve ever wondered what makes a cheesecake smooth and lump-free, always keep in mind to let the cream cheese sit at room temperature rather than working with a bar of cream cheese that is stone cold straight from the fridge. Using room temperature cream cheese helps in blending the remaining ingredients seamlessly for a smooth texture in cheesecakes. Instead of using just plain milk chocolate chips, try adding crumbled Toblerone bar or Hershey's chocolate broken into little bits. This recipe can be made healthier if you add dark chocolate in the place of regular chocolate for a bitter-sweet taste. Dark chocolate with more than seventy percent cacao is wholesome and healthier because it goes through less processing or ‘Dutching’ as the term is called. Dark chocolate is full of fiber, iron, magnesium and antioxidants that are essential for a healthy immune system.
In place of Graham crackers, you can also try other ones like Oreo crust, ginger snaps, ‘Digestive’ or ‘Rich Tea biscuits'. A few other choices of crusts you could try are ladyfingers, shortbread, Sandies cookies, or Sara Lee pound cake, yellow cake mix, Milk Arrowroots, vanilla wafers, soda crackers, etc. You can also add flavors to the cheesecake by mixing in instant pudding of your choice like key lime pudding, French vanilla, chocolate etc. You can also use fruit fillings like blueberry or strawberry or add toasted nuts like pecans and almonds that are healthy to incorporate. You can also use peanut butter chips, butterscotch or Skor toffee bits or even marshmallow fluff to make it a bit more fun. You can use mint extract or orange rind to make the cheesecake filling taste a bit exotic. These ingredients will help you change things up for newer flavors and adds exciting choices in desserts.
