Chocolate Cherryripe Cheesecake

By: Simone Christensen

A friends of ours made this chocolate cherry ripe cheesecake and gave us a taste of it. 

From the moment we tasted it we fell in love with it.  It is a decadent and one of those to die for desserts. How could I resist not making it myself for our family?!

We made also sold this cheesecake in our shop. It always sold out the same day we made it, which tells you how good it is.
