March 6th is National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day
you're not sure what to do today then grab a fork and get ready to
taste a little bit of heaven because it's National White Chocolate
Cheesecake Day! WARNING:
This flavor combination may result in you eating the whole cake in one
sitting. Let's get right into celebrating National White
Chocolate Cheesecake Day!
WHY IS THIS A
With the powers of white chocolate and cheesecake combined
you really need to ask why people would want to celebrate this dessert?
White chocolate is a creamy substitute to milk chocolate and then
cheesecake is such a rich cake that makes you truly savor each bite...
it's no wonder why today is a holiday! Cheesecake has
been around since the times of ancient Greece! The Greek physician,
Aegimus, actually wrote a book all about making cheesecake. And you
know, if I had cheesecake I wouldn't feel that bad about living without
running water, electricity and gasp... the internet! Ancient Greece
doesn't sound too bad now ;). Fast forward to 1872 when
Lawrence and a few other people were trying to make Neufchatel cheese.
They made a mistake and ended up with an unripened cheese that was
heavy and creamy. He started distributing his accidental cheese in foil
and it soon became known as Philadelphia cream cheese. Then, in 1912,
James Kraft came up with his own pasteurized version of this cheese to
create the type of cream cheese that we use today in cheesecakes.
A cheesecake usually consists of things like cream cheese (of
course), cream, sugar and eggs. You whip it up and pop it on top of a
crust that's commonly made from graham crackers or crumbled cookies.
Then you bake it, try to let it sit overnight in your fridge and slice
into it and enjoy! But for today you'll want to melt down some white
chocolate and add that into the mix before you bake it. Can't forget
that! Is your mouth watering yet?
So how can you celebrate today? Well, the best and easiest
option might be to head on over to the Cheesecake Factory and get a
slice of white chocolate cheesecake from them. It might be a
little pricey but you don't have to wait to cook it and they're sooo
good at making cheesecake! They also have a ton of different
flavors for you to try out. But if you don't feel like
a mainly dessert restaurant then you can just order up a slice when you
go out to eat at a different restaurant. Or you can head to
grocery store and see if they don't already have a white chocolate
cheesecake waiting for you. That's right, a whole cake just
you! ...and maybe some family and friends. Or you
a stab at making one yourself. You can go with a mix that
require baking or you can go all out and make one from
It's really up to you and how much time you want to wait before
shoveling it into your mouth! You can get creative with the
of crust you use and if you add any fruit to it. Crumbled
pressed into a crust is pretty common so go crazy with that.
about a lemon cookie crust with a lemon sauce? How about a
cookie crust with a blueberry topping? Yeah, you better hurry
eat some cheesecake quick! I know you're drooling on your
