12 Cheese Dessert Recipes That Are The Definition Of Sweet Perfection
We have no shame in admitting that we would happily eat cheese for every meal if we could — including dessert. Really, we know that cheese is better than people, and it's pretty much the perfect food, so of course it only makes sense that cheese desserts are the only kind of desserts we care about.
While we love cheesecake more than most things, there are so many other possibilities for using cheese in dessert. Try making danishes from scratch, or whip up some truffles for an easier challenge. Either way, your constant cheese cravings will always be satisfied. Looking for some cheesepiration? We've got you covered.
