Banana Chocolate Cheesecake

Just in the ovenSo, first I would like to apologize for being MIA from blogging for a bit. LIfe got a wee bit stressful, busy, chaotic, and I lost my creative edge. I can happily say it came back today! (at least for today). This Friday is the Kinette end of year pot luck and I volunteered to bring something fattening and delish – AKA dessert! True to my procrastinating self, I didn’t think of what I would make until o, today. That is when I thought Banana Chocolate cheesecake would be to die for! After not finding any recipes online that looked like I was imagining, I decided to wing it.. after all, I’ve created cheesecakes before, it can’t be that hard. AND if the batter is ANY indication, this is freaking amazing!
