I got this recipe from Bryans Aunt Connie. She is a wonderful cook and all of her recipes are amazing. This is one of Bryans favorite desserts so I decided to make it for his 40th birthday. I had to make this for his actual birthday because I had a surprise party planned for the following Saturday.
heres the recipe:
i add a chocolate ganache layer because we are all are crazy about chocolate and i had to have a frosting so i could write happy 40th bryan on his cake.
to make the ganache...add 6 ounces of bittersweet chocolate chips and 1/3 cup cream to a pyrex and microwave until chocolate melts and then let it cool a few minutes and then 'frost' the cheesecake. i used white chocolate in a frosting bag to pipe the happy 40th bryan on his cake.
