HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
I’m glad our winter wasn’t as cold as expected. Let’s Hope it stays this way.
I was racking my brains to see if I can come up with a spectacular dessert for February and here it is.
WAFFLETON AMARETTO CHEESECAKE
3 pkg. waffleton (dark or light)
2 pkg. cream cheese
3/4 cup Brown sugar
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup amaretto – heated
1 pkg. gelatin – dissolved in amaretto above
6 squares semi-sweet chocolates melted
Whole almonds – dipped in chocolates 1/3 on the rounded side
Line springform pan with waffleton on sides with round on the outside.
Cream together sugar, whipping cream, amaretto and gelatin.
Save 1/2 cup of the mixture
Halve the remainder
One half – add melted cocolate
One half – white in bottom of 10 inch springform pan
Place chocolate mixture over white
Place 1/2 cup saved white mixture over chocolate and swirl.
Place almonds dipped in chocolates facing the points inward on top of the chocolate part of waffleton.
The result is spectacular dessert and it tastes good as it looks!
