Hi there! How was your weekend? Other than a slight hiccup, the refi closing went smoothly. Plus, I started our taxes. I know, I live an exciting life :) Before I jump into mortgage madness, I want to share my Super Bowl desserts because it’s better late than never.
|Sacrificial cheesecake for the cheesecake balls|
If chocolate cheesecake balls are a little too much to handle, how about my aunt’s cheesecake recipe? If you want to make a cheesecake just for the cheesecake balls, skip making the graham cracker crust and sour cream topping. I made 2/3 of the recipe, which yielded 24 cheesecake balls.
Aunt Me’s Cheesecake
Graham Cracker Crust
1/2 stick butter
1 2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
