I’m so glad I have friends that cook! It’s so fun trying their food and tasty drinks. My friend T.J. came over to watch the Super Bow. and brought a couple new desserts for me to try. One of the desserts she brought was this AMAZING cake mix cherry cheesecake.
You guys. I had no idea you can make cheesecake out of a cake mix. Am I late to the game? The flavor was fantastic! I’m already thinking up so many so many new ways to use this! I’ve got an idea I’ll share with you this summer if it turns out. 😉
Anyway it would make the perfect dessert to take into the office, church or a friend’s house for a potluck. I love cheesecake as a dessert for a party. It always impresses guests, tastes amazing and you make it ahead of time so you don’t have to rush to make it the day of!
