Chocolate-Glazed Coconut Almond Cheesecake
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 45 min. + chilling
i was excited to make this think that it would taste like an almond joy candy bar. Was extremely disappointing. The crust had no flavor and the cheesecake part had little to no flavor of coconut. This cake was not sweet enough.
I made this delicious dessert for a party and everyone was asking for the recipe! I added about 3/4 cup of miniature semi sweet morsels to the filling, to give it a bit of an extra treat. I would highly recommend this cheesecake to anyone! In fact, my neighbor has asked me to make this for her birthday.
This was a hit at our annual Christmas party!
This sounds wonderful.... (to that end even though I haven't made it I'm confident it's wonderful and will rate it anyway) I'm curious from anyone who might be able to help - I'd love to make this in a 9 X 13 pan for coffee hour at church. I'm guessing the ingredients would work fine, just wondering about the baking time. Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you
I saw this in the magazine about a year ago and decided to make it for my mom for Mother's Day. She loved it! It wasn't too difficult to make and it really does resemble an almond joy!
GrannySmith123 ... Directions #2 says to mix the crumbs, coconut, almonds and butter. Then press in the bottom and up the sides to form the crust for the cheese cake. Hope this helps, you'll find making cheesecakes are really easy once you have one under your belt.
Do you have a healthier version of this?
Haven't tried this yet but have to, very soon. It sounds wonderful. But I want to know, too, how to use it in the mini-muffin pan. That sounds like a fun thing!!
Have not tried yet--how do I use the crumbs, etc. in the mini muffin pan liners?
