Thanksgiving Recipe: Hugs & Kisses Cheesecake

The best for last…..yes dessert!  I love dessert, pretty much any type of sweet is good with me!  I started making this chocolate chip cheesecake about 10 years ago.  Not sure where we got the recipe from but it has been a hit at many events.  If you are looking for something delicious but different for the Thanksgiving dessert try this one out.

Hugs & Kisses Cheesecake:

  • 2 – (3 ounce) packages of Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 (14 ounce) can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup mini Chocolate Chips
  • 1 teaspoon Flour
  • 1 prepared Chocolate Graham Cracker Crust (8 or 9 inch) OR make your own with 2 cups of Oreo Cookies and a tablespoon of melted butter.
  • Hershey’s Hugs & Kisses (optional on top as decorations)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix cream cheese until fluffy; slowly beat in the Sweetened Condensed Milk until smooth.  Add egg and vanilla and mix well.

Toss chocolate chips with flour and stir into cream cheese mixture.  Pour into the crust.

Bake for 35 minutes or until the center springs back when lightly touched.  Cool completely.

Optional – Chocolate Glaze:  Heat 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips and 1/4 cup whipping cream in a saucepan over low heat.  Stir until thickened and smooth.  Immediately spread over cooled cheesecake.

Optional – Decorate the edges of the cheesecake with chocolate shavings and / or Hershey’s Hugs & Kisses.

Once complete refrigerate until ready to serve.  Serve chilled.

Is that really just two 3 oz pkgs of cream cheese? so 6 oz total? Just want to make sure before making it 🙂

Kendra, yes the recipe only calls for a total of 6 ounces of cream cheese. This recipe is rich and delicious, but it is not as thick as some of the other traditional cheesecake recipes so it calls for less cream cheese. Hope that helps. I know you’ll love it!
