Hey, there cheesecake fans. Yeah, I’m talking to you:-) These chocolate cherry cheesecakes are going to blow your cheesecake lovin minds. You totally need to try these cherry filled cheesecake minis sometime this holiday season. I love how plain and chocolatey they look, but then one bite and you realize it is so much more!!!
A few weeks ago Lucky Leaf contacted me about trying some of their pie fillings. I have to be honest…I had never eaten this brand of pie filling before. So, what did I do as soon as I opened the can of cherry pie filling? Why grab a spoon and eat a big spoonful of course. I don’t really like sour stuff, so I was very excited to taste this and realize how SWEET the filling was. It was such a pretty shade of red too. I resisted the urge to just hide in a closet and down the entire can.
I kept thinking about what kind of pie I wanted to share with you. Each day I would suggest something different to my husband. He finally stopped me and told me to just make a cheesecake. He’s right you know. The only time we use a pie filling is usually when we are making some sort of cheesecake or a breakfast pastry.
Oh, yeah, I do remember this blueberry version I made a while ago.
The day he suggest this, my brain went crazy with all sorts of ideas. But I finally decided that since Christmas is only like 45 days away, we needed to stick with something that said, “Hello, holidays”. One of the things that I always remember about Christmas is those boxes of chocolate covered cherries that you can only buy at this time of year. I know some people don’t really like them, but I actually love those cheap little candies.
I stopped at Walmart with every good intention of just buying cream cheese and some hair product. I should know by now that I can’t just “run” into any store and get out in a minute or two. Try an hour later and a cart full of only baking supplies…why is it that I never seem to buy real food? Now if I could just remember what I bought all the other supplies for. In the store I had some good ideas, and I’m thinking I should have written them down.
Maybe if I eat another chocolate cherry cheesecake it will jog my memory:-)
Do you want to try your own can of pie filling? If you come back on Tuesday, I will be giving away a pie filling gift pack from Lucky Leaf. Check out some more pie filling recipes from Lucky Leaf.
