Be Still My Beating Heart - Revolvers, Adrenalin and Cheesecake
A 357 powerhouse
Adrenalin Junkie Cheesecake
A chocolate covered espresso bean/cookie crust, filled with cheescake made of two kinds of dark chocolate with a dollop of espresso and a bare hint of Madagascar vanilla. Topped with a deep chocolate ganache and served with whipped cream and espresso sugar.
If you can find it, the Sharferbergs chocolate for the filling and ganache is worth it. It's very complex, Figs and red wine, honey and spice with just a hint of coffee. I'm not sure as to the spice, there's a bite that lingers on the tongue that stems off the natural bitterness of dark cocoa. Cheaper chocolates will load up a bar with sugar to dull that taste, Not this one. It makes for a glorious cheesecake.
Go on make a batch, everyone has room for one last bite.
