Cheesecake Recipe

What's better than cheesecake?! Almost nothing! Except maybe getting a child to try it after they insist they won't like it! Getting children involved in the cooking & baking process helps them feel a sense of pride when the item is complete. They are more willing to want to give it a try to see how their creation tastes!


Baking is also an excellent way to work on many developmental skills - fine motor, problem-solving, and following instructions, to name a few. Try out this cheesecake recipe and let me know if your little one loves it!



Crust Ingredients

  • 1 sleeve of graham crackers smashed up

  • 2/3 cup of sugar

  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

  • 3 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter

  • 6 large Snicker bars chopped up

Filling Ingredients

  • 4 8-ounce cream cheese bars

  • 2/3 cup of sugar

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1tsp of vanilla

  • 4 ounces of melted white chocolate

  • 3/4 cup of heavy whipping cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Cover the outside of a 10-inch springform pan tightly with 2-3 layers of foil (this blocks water from entering the crust).

  3. Make the crust and put it into the springform pan.

  4. Make the filling by mixing the cream cheese till it is smooth. Scrape the sides of the mixing bowl, add everything in and mix well. Pour filling into the springform pan.

  5. Place the springform pan into a baking pan and pour hot water into the baking pan until it reaches about 1 inch.

  6. Bake for 1 and a half hours.

  7. Remove the cheesecake from the water bath and let it cool completely, for around 2 hours. I like to place it in the fridge to chill it prior to serving.

  8. Add toppings if desired! My favorites are fresh fruits or chocoltes.

  9. Enjoy!
