How do I make my cheesecake?
Place the Spring-form pan back in the freezer.
Leave the pan in the freezer for about an hour, and when the white layer is set to the touch (it’s almost frozen) add the red layer of cheesecake on top of the white layer, and spread evenly in the pan.
Making The Chocolate Hearts:
These pink white chocolate hearts are super cute! And they are so easy to make.Just put some of your melted chocolate in a squeeze bottle and draw the shape of a heart onto parchment paper. Let the chocolate dry completely and put your hearts on your cookies. Feel free to add a few more drizzles of chocolate if you want to decorate your cookies a bit more.
How do I ensure that my pink-colored layer won’t turn into bright red as well for this cheesecake recipe?
It’s all about the number of food coloring drops that you add to this recipe. Start by adding in a few drops and mixing to make certain that you don’t add in too many to get a bright red color. For one layer of the cheesecake, you do want red but for the other, you’re going for a light pink color. And keep in mind that once you add in too many red drops, there’s no way to lessen that color! This is why you slowly add to make certain that you don’t over add in the red!
Is it easy to freeze a cheesecake?
It actually is! Freezing a cheesecake is a totally simple process and we highly recommend doing this if you can’t consume it all within a few days. Frozen cheesecake will easily last for a couple of weeks without worry and will give you a little bit of time to start craving it again to be able to thaw and enjoy!
With Valentine’s Day approaching, the time is now to get your recipes ready! This Valentine’s Cheesecake is one recipe that we give two thumbs up to because it tastes amazing and looks beautiful as well.
