The Cheesecake Process
This cheesecake uses chocolate striped shortbread cookies for the crust adding in 1 cup of chocolate chips and a 12 oz. package of bacon. But, you could certainly use the more traditional graham cracker crust if bacon isn’t your thing. We also added another package of bacon and chocolate chips into our cheesecake filling. We topped it off with more bacon in our caramel sauce.
All told, there was more than 2 pounds of bacon in this recipe. Pure heaven for any bacon lover!
