Beyond Breakfast with Bays English Muffins
This Chocolate Chunk Cheesecake Spread with Bays English Muffins is the ultimate in sweet goodness. The creaminess of this spread paired with the crunch of a perfectly toasted English muffin is delightful because Bays English Muffins are delicious at any time of the day.
We still love ours in the morning for breakfast and a pizza version for lunch but knowing that there is a dessert option to pair with these tasty treats is perfection because Bays elevates any meal occasion and remember English muffins can be used for more than just breakfast at home.
This recipe is so easy to prepare, just let your electric mixer do all the work for you.
We omitted the dried cherries in this recipe when we made it at home, but you can easily substitute whatever flavor combinations of fruit, nuts and chocolate to your spread that you like.
