My sister had a housewarming party on Saturday.
I made two desserts. Honestly, there was so much food I don't think it was necessary, but alas!, I made two artery-clogging, cholesterol-raising treats.
The no-bake cheesecake in Martha's Halloween issue. I couldn't be bothered with the spiderweb decoration and just spattered the ganache Jackson Pollock-style. My only issue with the cake: the ganache did not stick to the crust sides like Martha says it should. I didn't let that stop me; I just poured it on the bottom instead of fighting with the side crumbs. This cake, as you can imagine, was so filling. Me, my daughter, and my father split one small piece. The three of us, as individuals are sweets lovers, and we were all satisfied sharing. Overall, good cake, would recommend for making it for a party.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars from my Philadelphia cream cheese cookbook. This is a no-brainer. Cream cheese. Peanut butter. No need to say more. (I must admit, I am not a real peanut butter fan, but my love and chocolate and cream cheese makes this dessert worthy of a piece or three.)
