Here's the recipe!
However, I don't seem to appreciate melted cheese as much. I have been slightly disappointed in the world-famous Chicago Deep-dish Pizza. Don't get me wrong - It's good. It's just that the deep dish is filled with melted cheese. And it turns out that Chicagoans don't really like sauce on their pizza which is actually my favorite part. I feel the same about quesadillas and really gooey mac and cheese. I just don't like eating a mouthful of melted cheese.
But back to the good stuff. I love that Jacob can appreciate a good cheese like I can and sometimes we'll buy a fancy cheese and pretend we're back in France. You can find some really good ones here, though the selection is generally quite a bit smaller (and we have yet to find a really good, authentic baguette!). This weekend we wanted to share our love with some friends and hosted a "Cheesy Game Night" where each couple was invited to bring a yummy cheese to share. We ended up with quite a good spread and some seriously yummy snacks.
To go with all the salty snacks, I wanted to make something sweet and found these delicious-looking Chocolate-Covered Cheesecake Bites on Pinterest (because I DO love a mouthful of cheesecake). The recipe was easy to follow, not too difficult, and turned out SO GOOD. I was quite relieved that we had a few leftovers. I will most definitely make these again. These bites are not a last-minute kind of dessert because you do need to make the cheesecake the day before and freeze it. But none of the steps were terribly time-consuming and they came out looking pretty good if I do say so myself.
I stuck pretty close to the recipe, though I did slightly more cream cheese and slightly less greek yogurt (a little closer to the original recipe that she followed). I only dipped about a third of the cheesecake bites, left a third plain, and drizzled chocolate and peanut butter on a third. I have never thought to put coconut oil in the chocolate to thin it out (I've only ever used shortening). It worked so well and gave the chocolate a slight hint of coconut flavor which tasted really good. I would definitely recommend making these. You will not be disappointed.
