Poor David has to share his birthday with Thanksgiving...last year I made a pumpkin pie for his birthday/thanksgiving dinner...this year he asked if i could make him something not pumpkin for his birthday.
Me: Not pumpkin?? But it is Thanksgiving!!!???
Downtrodden Hubby: But...it is my birthday...
Me: oh...right...ahem...whatever you want the light of my life (I'll just make me a pumpkin something anyway!)
Downtrodden Hubby: That's chocolate cheesecake that model made on TV yesterday looked good?
Me: As you wish...
The 'model' he was talking about is Lorriane Pascale. I have to say I'm not a huge fan of the show's format, but for the most part her recipes are simple, homily, and...as I found out on Monday night...totally doable!
This no bake chocolate cheesecake was a cinch to put together. The only difficulty I had was piping the white chocolate on the top and then swirling the STILL WARM icing...it had cooled too much (thank you makeshift piping bag malfunction)...but it still tasted good. For a no-bake cheesecake I was really happy with the outcome. The biscuit base is thick and crunchy, the cream cheese middle is pretty creamy...I think it needed a bit more chocolate...but still tasty...and the top firmed up nicely.
