Put A Twist On Your Classic Cheesecake

The classic cheesecake has received hundreds of facelifts over the years. Every flavor that you can imagine can be made in your kitchen. Here are a few twists to make this traditional food more interesting.

Ice Cream Cheesecake

When you visit the ice cream section at the store, you see several flavors that combine plain ice cream with cheesecake pieces. This combination is easy to make at home with a bucket of your favorite ice cream. Many people like eating cheesecake cold anyway, so the ice cream simply adds in more flavoring and texture.

Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake

Cheesecake and mousse are two soft, rich foods that are even more delicious when combined. Chocolate mousse is easy to mix in with the soft cheese, and no baking is required. Some people like to add layers one on top of another, like cream cheese on top of chocolate mousse or in between two layers of mousse. Others like to add a chocolate crust made of brownies, chocolate biscuits or graham crackers.

Caramel Pecan Turtle Cheesecake

Caramel pecan turtle cheesecake is a mouthful of creamy caramel, crunchy pecans and rich chocolate in one bite. Add caramel to the thick cheesecake layer, then add a separate chocolate layer, including a chocolate pastry crust. Finish by sprinkling whole pecans on top. Some people like to add a caramel or chocolate drizzle or crushed peanuts.

Sopapilla Cheesecake

First, know what sopapilla means. Also known as cachanga, it is a tasty fried bread that is common on the American continent. You may be wondering how bread can be combined into a cheesecake. It’s typically placed on top and adds a unique contrast to a plain, dull cheesecake. Sopapilla adds a crunchy top layer and crust to a soft cheesecake and can be flavored with cinnamon, powdered sugar or syrup. Try this amazing sopapilla cheesecake recipe as a dessert to eat after a traditional Spanish dinner.

Peanut Butter Cheesecake

The ideal recipe for anyone who loves peanut butter and cheesecake. Blend in thick peanut butter with the soft, creamy cheese. Add as much peanut butter as you want for a strong taste, and add peanuts if you like those. Drizzle liquid peanut butter drizzle on top. Some people like to add peanut butter cookies for decoration.

Banana Pudding Cheesecake

A banana pudding recipe consists of vanilla or banana flavored pudding, wafer cookies and banana slices with optional whipped creaming. Combine this traditional recipe with plain cheesecake made of vanilla or banana flavoring. Some people like the added crunchy cookie layer in the middle. Finish it with banana slices and whipped cream on top.

Key Lime Cheesecake

Key lime pie consists of condensed milk, egg yolks and lime juice on a graham cracker crust with an optional meringue topping. The cream cheese flavoring of the cheesecake blends in perfectly with the milk and egg yolks. The key lime is a sweeter, fruitier taste than what most cheesecake lovers are used to.
