A few weeks ago I found my countertop, once again, laden with geriatric bananas. If I did not have a food blog, I'd make the same delish banana bread and muffins over and over. Since I do indeed have a food blog, I always feel the need to come up with something new. On that particular day I needed simple and quick and this recipe could not have fit the bill any better.

Is there anyone in the universe who enjoys packing? It's ironic that it is such a detestable chore for most people since the event that follows packing is vacation. Tomorrow we are setting out on our last summer adventure. We will spend nearly a week with family, most of whom we only get to see once a year. We leave in the morning, and guess what?!

Festive Mint Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Recipe

This cheesecake is so festive and deliciously minty! Plus, what isn't delicious when it's drizzled with chocolate!

I haven't been outside yet today, but the weather looks incredible again. I will be making my way out soon to enjoy it. In the meantime, here I sit in my pajamas eating green cheesecake. At 10:00 in the morning. Don't judge! 

Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F.

In a food processor, combine:

15 Oreo cookies

10 Keebler Grasshoper fudge mint cookies

Pulse until fine crumbs form. Add 5 tablespoons of melted butter and pulse a few more times, just until the crumbs become moistened.

Press the cookie crumbs into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.

Place three 8-ounce packages of softened cream cheese into a large bowl. Using a hand-held mixer, beat on medium speed for about 3 minutes, or until the cream cheese is light and fluffy.

Add a 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk and mix until fully incorporated.

Add 3 eggs and mix until incorporated.

Add:

1 tablespoon Crème de Menthe

1 teaspoon peppermint extract

1/2 teaspoon green food coloring (you can tailor this amount to your liking)

Mix well.

In a small bowl, combine:

1 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 teaspoon flour

Stir to coat.

Using a spoon, stir the chocolate chips into to the cream cheese mixture.

Pour the mixture into the prepared springform pan. Top with 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips.

Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.

To avoid cracking, immediately run a knife along the edge of the cheesecake to separate it from the pan. Do not remove the side of the pan, however, until it has completely cooled.

Let the cheesecake cool at room temperature and then refrigerate it until it is ready to serve.

In a small bowl, combine:

1/2 cup chocolate chips 

1 tablespoon milk

Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir until creamy. Heat in additional 15-second intervals, if needed, stirring after each interval, until creamy.

Drizzle the melted chocolate over each slice before serving.
