MILKY WAY MIDNIGHT CHEESECAKE

Milky Way Midnight Cheesecake

You know that old saying ‘Nothing good ever happens after midnight”?

Well, I feel I must set the record straight and share some of my favorite good things that take place after midnight:

  • Stargazing while camping in the wilderness
  • Netflix binge-watching
  • Having a great conversation
  • Having a great conversation while sipping a glass of wine
  • Dancing, dancing, and more dancing
  • Enjoying a slice of this cheesecake

What are some of your favorite (G-rated, ok? lol)  midnight activities? I might want to try them out myself.

I hope you try out this cheesecake.  Consuming it post-midnight might also become one of your favorites. Thanks so much for reading! x -j

CHEESECAKE
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a standard mixer, whip cream cheese on the highest speed for 5 minutes.
  3. Scrape down sides of bowl and add sugar, whip for 2 more minutes.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time. Mix on the lowest speed in order to prevent too much air from destroying the consistency of the batter. Mix just until each egg has been incorporated into the batter. And scrape down sides of bowl between additions.
  5. Add vanilla and pinch of salt on low. Mix just until incorporated.
  6. Pour cheesecake batter into pan.
  7. Sprinkle milky way minis evenly over the top of the cheesecake.
  8. Place springform pan in the center rack of the preheated oven. Bake for 60-65 minutes. Turn oven off, prop oven door open with a wooden spoon and let the cheesecake sit there for 10-15 minutes.
  9. Transfer cheesecake to refrigerator and allow to chill for at least 8 hours, preferably overnight.
  10. Top cheesecake with remaining chopped milky way minis.
  11. Drizzle with chocolate syrup before serving if desired.
