Warm wishes on the glorious occasion of Australia Day!
Luciano and I are celebrating Australia Day as proud Australian Citizens, Luciano by birth and I as a "new Australian". Actually, not so new: I proudly became Australian Citizen in 2009, so this year I am celebrating the 8th anniversary of my "marriage" to Australia. How exciting!
To wish you the best Australia Day ever, we looked for an Australian Day recipe that you can realize last minute for your guests. With many thanks to Steph of the Raspberri Cupcakes blog. Your recipes are AMAZING! Thank you thank you thank you.
Here are the ingredients:
For the chocolate crackle base:
250g good quality milk chocolate, finely chopped

For the cheesecake filling:
300ml (about 1 1/4 cups) thickened (heavy) cream
340g (12oz) cream cheese, softened
