Rich Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Updated on February 8, 2015

Cheesecake Postcard


Sinfully Delightful Cheesecake

Rich, creamy, mouth watering, sinfully delightful, chocolate raspberry cheesecake. A pleasure for a chocoholic's taste buds. Slowly savor this guilt ridden desirable dessert of ecstasy. Blend together raspberries, chocolate and cream cheese for pure delight.

Raspberries are healthy, delicious and packed with vitamin C. Dark chocolate is full of flavonoids, which act as antioxidants. Cream cheese is a dairy product with vitamin D and calcium. Though high in fat and calories a light cream cheese or cottage cheese are both alternates to this savoring recipe.

      jmsp206, It is a pretty yummy cheesecake.

    • Julia M S Pearce 2 years ago from Melbourne, Australia

      Oh this looks so good!!!

    • whats4dinner 5 years ago

      Yes, it'd be fun.

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      Yes, proud to look! Heck, I'd even wear one too to get the attention!

    • Tamara Kajari 6 years ago from Zagreb, Croatia, Europe

      Back in college probably, but today only around the house :)

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Yes, but only in select company.

    • Rhonda Albom 6 years ago from New Zealand

      I am not sure if I would wear it, only because I don't wear T-shirts, but you should be proud of your creativity - so I couldn't vote on the other side!

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      Don't think I'd wear it in public, but I'd wear it!

    • Amy Fricano 6 years ago from WNY

      Yeah, but Nah, but only because it would direct attention to the lack ot strawberries and cookies.

    No! You should be ashamed of yourself!

        I don't think I would wear it

      • blanckj 6 years ago

        I would be a little apprehensive. Thanks but no thanks.

      • Malu Couttolenc 6 years ago

        Well you should't be ashamed of yourself but I'm way too shy to wear one of these :)

        While I do not fully embrace the statement here "you should be ashamed of yourself," I do have to side with the no votes. I will gladly leave those types of shirts to the younger generation. No one really wants to look at me anyway. I can assure you!

      • Nathalie Roy 6 years ago from France (Canadian expat)

        No!! although they are funny:)

      • happynutritionist 6 years ago

        no...but you don't have to be ashamed of yourself:-)

      • Nancy Tate Hellams 6 years ago from Pendleton, SC

        No, I don't need to draw anymore attention to that particular area

      • poc 6 years ago

        Do !I look like a person who would wear such an item of clothing? Perhaps I would BUT only under a shirt as a singlet

      • David Schroeter 6 years ago from St Kilda, Victoria, Australia

        No, but only because I am the wrong gender, and it would draw attention to my "man boobs". :)

          Excellent Recipe - Sometimes you just gotta splurge. I like Chocolate and I like Cheesecake, and Raspberries are good for you. Now I can combine the three into one Sinful (but delicious) Dessert.

          I thank you for the recipe, my waist line - not so much. LOL
