Rich and satisfying desserts are welcome any time of the year, but we’d like to think that throughout the festive holiday season Santa gives us all a present actually by taking away something – calories! Here are three confections that are proven crowd pleasers, courtesy of CooksSalon.com where cooks from first-timers to long-timers can tap into recipes & tasty resources in new Salons every Friday.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake This is so good it just might be illegal. Or at least something you don’t want to mention to your dentist. Rich cheesecake goes a big step richer with melted chocolate chips blended in. Then cozies up to a thick layer of peanut butter that’s gone all sweet with powdered sugar, then finished with a chocolate drizzle. And, it’s no-bake. From Tasty.co which just keeps on living up to its name. Recipe <> From Jan 22, 2021 Salon
Cherry Cream Cheese Coffeecake This is just so perfect for breakfast or brunch, with its buttery crust, creamy layer, cherry sweetness, and crumbly top. And as you can see, it is crowd size. The recipe calls for prep in a springform pan, but I opted for a rectangular baking pan for thinner slices. One other nice thing, it can slip into dessert mode just as is. Of course a side of ice cream can’t hurt. From my own files. Recipe <> From May 14, 2021 Salon
