Kit Kat Crusted Strawberry Cheesecake 

 

kit kat crusted strawberry cheesecake

It took me three days to plan this cake. I knew I wanted to use strawberries and Kit Kat together, but in a way, both flavors would be huge and exploding in your mouth. Kit Kat only in the crust was too boring, strawberries just added after baking the cake not enough.
So this Kit Kat Crusted Strawberry Cheesecake has Kit Kat inside the crust, on top of the crust (you can see the chocolate layer between crust and cheesecake), strawberries in the cheesecake and on top. Finished off with some whipped cream this treat is heavenly! Highly addicting, crunchy, creamy, refreshing, sweet … you name it!
No one will be able to resist – my promise!
