Happy New Year!
While special occasions like Christmas and birthdays seem to have more obvious themed-desserts, it’s difficult to decide on an appropriate dessert to make for New Year’s. For some reason, celebrating the New Year seems to call for a bit of sparkle to cap off a year of work, gained experiences and appreciation for the people in your life.
I have been meaning to experiment with this “New” Lindt Strawberry White Chocolate bar and found this as the perfect occasion to experiment, for a sophisticated dessert for New Year’s. Though Ricelessasian has previously used this product on a few occasions, it was my first time trying it out. Normally I don’t enjoy white chocolate on its own, because it is overly sweet sometimes, but the latest product had small bits of strawberries in it which I thought would be definitely worth the try!
I decided to use the Strawberry and White Chocolate Cheesecake recipe from this amazing food blog called Dailydelicious.
The cheesecake was so creamy and luscious, with a mild, not overpowering strawberry flavour. I really enjoy using the strawberry white chocolate because it’s quite versatile – it would be perfect to use in cupcake frosting. This would be an elegant dessert to serve to family and friends on New Year’s with a glass of bubbly!
Happy 2014 everyone,
