Trending Chocolate & Vanilla Swirl Cheesecake

You’re guaranteed to be the star of your next potluck event walking in with this amazing chocolate and vanilla swirl cheesecake!

We were going to be having a little luncheon at the church in order to celebrate the oncoming season of Spring! We have a great group of people at our church, and we like to get together whenever we can. We have an awesome space to host luncheons, and when we do everything potluck style, there’s no cost to the church other than just running the electricity and the water.

Whenever they schedule these, with my husband and I being retired, we usually try and go. It’s a great way for us to meet up with our friends and enjoy some conversation with one another. I usually always make a dessert, because that’s what I am best at making. When I found this recipe for a chocolate and vanilla swirl cheesecake, I was more excited to make it than what I was to go to the lunch I think.

Isn’t it just so pretty? I already knew before even walking in the door people were going to ooohh and ahhhh over my creation. And I was 100% right!
