Milky Way candy bars and make-ahead convenience give this sweet specialty its fantastic flair. "Our children and their families love this eye-appealing dessert," says Pat Pierce of Epworth, Iowa. "And I never worry about left-overs because it's gone in a flash."
The trick to this tempting treat is pulling a toothpick through rings of melted chocolate to create the web effect. "This no-bake cream cheese pie goes together quickly and tastes delicious," assures Jan White, Plainview, Nebraska. "It's fun to serve, too, because it never fails to draw comments."
This dessert is oh-so-rich and handy to have in the freezer for unexpected company (like we had last night!). I grew up with eight brothers who devoured a cake every day! That meant my mother and I spent many evenings in the kitchen...and we never heard of cake mixes back then!
”We love desserts,” writes Mary Lewis in Sanford, Maine. “When my husband was diagnosed with diabetes, I learned to be more creative with his carbs. This recipe’s a keeper with built-in portion control!”
Our Test Kitchen staff takes advantage of convenience products to transform plain store-bought cheesecake into a delectable dessert. Served on a plate decorated with swirls of chocolate syrup, each sensational slice looks as if a master baker prepared it.
I love the scent of lavender, and the edible flowers make this cheesecake one of the most unique I have ever tasted. You can use lavender honey in this recipe for extra flavor, but even without it, the lavender is very distinct. —Julie Palmer, Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania
