WHITE CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE. A smooth creamy rich white chocolate cheesecake over a honey graham cracker hazelnut crust.I have fallen in love with white chocolate. That buttery, creamy, vanilla taste is just heaven to me. I used to prefer the bold, bittersweet flavor of dark chocolate, but lately, the soft and delicate taste of cocoa butter has me in awe. Now, don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy dark chocolate, I just like them both equally now. So, more chocolate love to go around. :)

The crust is made with sweet honey graham crackers and ground hazelnuts for an added crunchy texture. The cake is creamy and smooth with the taste of white chocolate complimenting the flavor of the sweetened cream cheese and egg custard. Topped with gorgeous red strawberries, it’s pretty enough to be a centerpiece.
