I love cheesecake. It's probably an inherited taste, as cheesecake is my Dad's favorite dessert. The funny thing is that growing up, I didn't like the taste of cheesecake at all. Several years ago I decided to try it once more, and now I am hooked! I was excited when given the opportunity to work with Decadence Gourmet Cheesecakes. While Decadence offers traditional cheesecakes, they also have a unique Cheesecake-In-A-Jar as well. These come in packs of 6, or you can try samplers with different flavors. I was able to pick out 6 flavors for the Before And After set. This comes with 4 dessert cheesecakes (in a jar) and 2 "Appetizer Cheesecakes". I have to admit, I had never heard of appetizer cheesecakes before. I chose the Chorizo Black Bean and Sun Dried Tomato for my appetizers, and NY Style Strawberry, German Chocolate, Outer Banks and Chocolate Decadence for my desserts.
The cheesecakes arrived frozen. It was hard to not eat one right away, but I put them all in the refrigerator for later. That evening after dinner I pulled out the dessert cheesecakes, and even shared with the family! (I'm so proud of myself for sharing :)
My Dad of course chose the German Chocolate, I had the Chocolate Decadence, and C had the Outer Banks. These are absolutely some of the BEST cheesecakes I have ever had! The German Chocolate has a Pecan Biscotti crust, coconut oil, cream cheese cheesecake, and a layer of chocolate. My Dad said it was excellent!
The Outer Banks is a Reese's lover's dream, as it is a rich blend of chocolate and peanut butter. Very tasty!
My Chocolate Decadence was great with a glass of milk. Chocolate pecan biscotti crust, chocolate cheesecake, and a hint of espresso. The perfect finishing touch after dinner!
The next day I ate the NY Style Strawberry (sorry, only 1 left I'm not sharing :) and again, loved the taste and texture. I don't like my cheesecake to be dry, but this was rich and creamy.
The appetizer cheesecakes were also a big hit. We often have snacks during game night (popcorn, chips, crackers, etc.) and these were perfect for dipping various crackers in.
Decadence Cheesecakes in a Jar would make a great addition to your holiday party this month! Or send a pack to a distant friend or relative-who doesn't love cheesecakes for Christmas?!
