Cheese cake al cioccolato di Martha Stewart.

After a long week- end In Rimini, where I’ ve also attended a beautiful ( and Covid safe) wedding, I’m back with a post.

Whoho! I am working hard!!

I made this cheese cake so long ago I don’t even remember when but I definetely remember the silky texture and the wonderful taste!

Not a surprise as this recipe comes from one of the books of Martha Stewart and she never fails, right??

This is the book:

I loved it so much, I have this, the one about cookies, the one about cupcakes…

But I’m always on a diet and I cannot make all of them SOB, SOB!!

Here you are the recipe, indulge in this cheese cake and be happy! <3
