Birthday’s are all about having your cake and eating it too. When my fiance’s birthday came up I knew two things had to happen.
- It had to be Cheesecake
- I had to change the game from the OG.
Don’t get me wrong. Nothing beats the plain, classic, goodness of a no-nonsense cheesecake (I should really share THAT recipe too because it’s one of the best things that comes out of my kitchen), but I get bored of doing the same thing over and over. Also, I feel that birthdays are special! There’s gotta be that extra touch!
So I hummed and hawed about what to do, and I realized that my fiance also loves Toblerone! And why should these two ingredients NOT go together!
I scoured the internet, took the simplest recipe I could find, and customized it to what I wanted…
The results were a decadent and dense dessert that hit the spot with a small slice, or big. (I’m not here to judge). And a little Toblerone on top to boot? Who can complain?!
Check out my recipe (adapted from Philly’s website) below!
And leave me some comments on what you thought of the recipe!
