    Beautiful desert

    Elizabeth Halfman from Davenport, IA

    This was wonderful. I made this for a lady's get together. It's delicious, transport's nicely, slice's perfectly. Ice cream or whipping cream on top or on the side adds to this treat.

    Tempting Treat

    Marie DeAngelis from Sunrise, FL

    this tastes as good as it looks! Love the chocolate and pecans added to the "graham cracker" crust. White chocolate cheesecake layer perfectly melds the crust and Strawberry topping flavors and textures. Already have requests for Bake Again!

    Chocolate Berry Tart

    SJ Dickinson from BELLINGHAM, MA

    This desert was the best yet. I truly enjoyed the challenge of making it. The combination of the strawberries and raspberries was sheer genius on the top. Add the chocolate and you have a dream of a desert. I thought there might be some left over, boy was I wrong. Even my husband who does not particularly like cream cheese loved it.

    yummy

    June Evans from ALBANY, OR

    I had been waiting for a special occasion to make this dessert, and then realized that the best occasion is my adult children were going to stop in one night so that became my special occasion. Everyone loved it .It tasted so wonderful. And looked like it took a lot more time them it really did. I will make this again and often.Thank you.

    my chocoberry lite!!!!!!!

    M M Nodich from Appleton, WI

    I use fat free vegetable spray butter in the crust. On the filling, I use non-fat heavy cream, low-fat cheese, no calories sweetener was use for sugar. I made a syrupe with the sweetener and pured over some thaw raspbarry. My housband and I love it and we were happy that some of the calories were gone.

    Strawberry tart

    LORETTA DEATS from PINEDALE, WY

    The tart was very good. I made mine strawbwrrues only. It would be very good as a pine in a graham cracker or oreo crust. My son thought the crust wou be better if it was brownies. i have to agree with him.

  •  Star(s)

    Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Frances Calabro from PHILADELPHIA, PA

    Made this for Easter dessert. I didn't have enough white chocolate morsels so I melted some white and semi swirled morsels and added them into the cheese mixture. The combination of flavors was incredible. We are chocoholics so I drizzled bittersweet chocolate over the fruit topping. My guests couldn't stop raving. It was just the right amount of sweet and not too heavy. This is definitely a keeper.

    Ann Messing from MCKINNEY, TX

    I served this for dessert Saturday when two sisters-in-law and both of my children and their families were here for dinner. It was a big hit with everyone. Freezing the crust and then baking was a great idea--will try that method on my cheesecakes! Wonderful recipe!

    Chocolate Berry Tart

    J. E. Cash from ARLINGTON, MA

    Although rated challenging, it didn't seem that way to me. I think arranging the berries on the top so they looked their best was the most difficult part of the whole recipe. Beautiful and delicious. Quite a treat.

    This received raves and lots of oohs and aahs at a recent gathering. The vanilla flavor of the white morsels perfectly offsets the berries and I will make this again.
