Cheesecake with a rice krispy crust and chocolate filling
We're in the early weeks of 2022, and this is one of the first desserts of the new year! We all start the year thinking I want to be on a diet or lose weight, when really it’s all about portion control, what you eat, exercise and your well being. I can eat desserts like these as long as I do it in moderation. That’s what I’m doing with this Chocolate Rice Krispy No Bake Cheesecake! I got the idea for this dessert online over the holidays, and y’all know I can bake a good cheesecake. That’s where the mashup idea came in: rice krispy crust with a creamy chocolate filling, topped with whipped cream and shaved chocolate. The cheesecake is sweet, rich, creamy, and so good! You will be in chocolate heaven when you have a bite!
