Cheesecake Toppings!

I love cheesecake, though I make it all of 3 times a year — if that.  I don’t usually use toppings, but there are a number of them that would be good on the recipe that I use.

  1. Arrange blueberries in the shape of a star.
  2. Slice strawberries and use them to line the edges of the cheesecake. Add a dollop of coconut cream to the center, and sprinkle blueberries over the topping for a patriotic look.
  3. Sprinkle mini chocolate chips or M&M’s over the top of the cake.
  4. Halve cherries and mix them with whipped topping. Spread this over the top.
  5. Banana slices would top a cheesecake nicely.
  6. Crushed candy bar can be sprinkled over the top. Try a Snickers bar, or a Score bar.
  7. Reese’s Peaces or Skittles could also be sprinkled over the top.
  8. Hot fudge or caramel topping is good spread in a thin layer over the top.
  9. Try crumbling a brownie over the top of the cheesecake.
  10. Crushed pineapple of berries would be good spread over the top.

UPDATE: This cheesecake is not going to be healthy no matter what toppings you use. This is why I don’t make it often. But a treat once in a while, especially at the holidays, is nice.

UPDATE 2016: One of the cheesecakes in the feature photo is topped with dollops of whipped cream, half squares of Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate, and a drizzle of Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup. The other is topped with dollops of whipped cream, peppermint Hershey’s Kisses, and shaved chocolate.
