The holidays are upon us, and it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll make for all your celebrations. If you’re seeking a dessert that will really wow this holiday season, look no further than this Baked by Rachel recipe for white chocolate peppermint bark cheesecake.
Cheesecake is always a crowd-pleaser and because it takes time to set, it’s a great make-ahead dessert option. The combination of white chocolate and pieces of peppermint bark, along with peppermint candies, make it super-festive for the winter holidays.
The blog’s author notes that her recipe was inspired by peppermint bark cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory. And from the looks of her photos, her version might be just as delicious.
