Rocky Road Cheesecake~

Today, I'm sharing a recipe for Rocky Road Cheesecake.  I made this for my family on Father's Day and it was a huge hit. My husband loved it and it was so easy to make. 

This was so simple to make but don't tell anyone!  They'll think to worked all day. Next time I may even add a little more melted chocolate to the creamed cheese! I added some shaved chocolate and chopped peanuts to the top. What a delicious treat!

Rocky Road Cheesecake
