Recipe Tips

  • Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature before trying to make this dish as it can cause consistency issues such as lumps of plain cream cheese throughout your cake.
  • You can use a combination of both milk and dark chocolate for a slightly different flavor. It will help take away a little bit of the sweetness.
