Cheesecake is my favorite dessert! Ever!
I love it, but not if it has fruit on top. No, no fruit toppings. The only thing worthy of topping cheesecake is caramel sauce.
Surprisingly, I haven't made many sweets lately, but tonight I was craving something yummy.
I tried an almond flour pie crust awhile back that was deliciousness, so I knew I wanted to use that as the base and I thought what better to put on top than cheesecake.
So I did.
Well, I did after I put a layer of chocolate on it.
Yes, I then drizzled caramel sauce on top.
It definitely took care of my sweet craving.
I made this crust recipe from Elana and baked it in an 8x8 pan.
After it cooled I topped it with a double batch of skinny chocolate.
I put it in the fridge long enough for the chocolate to harden and in the meantime I made the cheesecake filling.
I whipped 1 pt of heavy whipping cream until soft peaks formed, then set it aside.
I took 2 pkg of cream cheese (softened) and mixed them with 1/2 c erythritol and 2 Tbsp of vanilla until well mixed.
Then I mixed in the whipped cream. You are supposed to fold it in, but I am no good at that and I just mixed it in with my mixer. It worked fine.
As soon as it was mixed I put it on top of the chocolate covered pie crust, spread it out and back into the fridge it went to set up, probably a 1-2 hours.
While it was setting up I made the most delicious healthy caramel sauce ever,
you can find the recipe here. It is supposed to cool as well, so I put it in a jar and stuck it in the fridge.
While waiting for all my yumminess to set up I did my workout for the day.
I did a PrayFit workout, LOVE it, but oh my abs and thighs were hurting when I was done.
Then I had my protein shake and a big salad for dinner.
FINALLY, I was ready for dessert.
And it was ready to be eaten.
As I'm typing this I have no idea what to call this dessert.
How about Chocolate Layer Cheesecake Pie.
Not real original, but I'm telling you, I've got nothing.
I hope you enjoy! I did!
