Double Chocolate Whiskey Cheesecake


Double Chocolate Whiskey Cheesecake

Cheesecake is a pretty excellent dessert on its own. However, there are a few ways to make a cheesecake even more decadent than it already is. We have found those ways. First, you add chocolate to the cheesecake. However, we didn't just add chocolate, we added double the chocolate. Secondly, we added Jack Daniel's Whiskey. There is nothing Jack Daniel's cannot solve!

I didn't have any Jack Daniels on hand, but I had part of a bottle of some stuff called Maker's Mark, which I think is bourbon, and this stuff was amazing! This would be awesome for a night with the girls, and I might just serve it with a shot of whatever you add to it on the side!

Wow what a decadent dessert. I definitely want to try this one. Well worth the effort I would say. 4 tablespoons of whiskey is quite a lot and so I am expecting to taste it nicely. I like that. What is the point of making a liquor flavored cake if you can't taste the liquor. I find that happens often and is always disappointing. I don't think I will be disappointed with this cheesecake recipe.
