[FOOD DIARY] Double Chip Cheescake + Mini Cheesecake Bites

Preheat oven to 300°F. Grease 9-inch pie pan. Afterward, combine crumbs and butter in a small bowl. Press crumbs so they are firmly arranged in the pie pan.

Beat cream cheese and granulated sugar in large mixer bowl until smooth. Add sour cream, flour, and vanilla extract; mix well. Add eggs; beat on low speed until combined.

Melt butterscotch morsels according to package directions. Stir until smooth. Add 1½ cups batter to the melted morsels. Pour onto crust.

Repeat procedure for the semi-sweet chocolate morsels. Pour on top of the butterscotch layer.

 With the leftover batter, create a spiral design on top of the semi-sweet chocolate morsel layer. Use a toothpick or skewer to craft the spiral, creating a web like effect. Place cheesecake in oven for approximately an hour and ten minutes.

After creating the web-like design on the cheesecake, use whatever batter is left to create a dozen or so mini cheesecake bites. Top the bites with crumbled graham crackers. Once prepared, place the cheesecake bites in the oven during the last 25 minutes of baking.

Remove both dishes from the oven and let cool. Once cooled, top the cheesecake with two or more of your favorite drizzles. I used melted white chocolate morsels, melted butterscotch morsels, and melted semi-sweet chocolate morsels. To create a smooth enough drizzle, try adding just a splash of milk. Be careful, adding too much will make the drizzle too runny.

After applying your favorite drizzles, it's time to enjoy this delicious dessert.

 P.S. The mini cheesecake bites make a perfect snack when you have a sweet tooth!

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I did. Until next week,
