Decadent Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake and win Driscoll's coupons

Photo and recipe courtesy of Driscoll's

So, July 30th is National Cheesecake Day. When I was growing up for the longest time I thought I didn't like cheesecake.  It was one of those times as a kid where I was basically making an assumption and not trying something.  I finally tried it when I was probably about 11 or 12 and I've never looked back since.

While I do love a killer cheesecake with more of a traditional style and flavor, this Decadent Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake looks insanely good and, well, decadent, just like the title promises.

A couple of weeks ago, in honor of National Cheesecake Day, I was emailed this recipe and sent some coupons for some Driscoll's berries.  I couldn't be happier that the kind folks at Driscoll's offered this, not just because I can do so many fun things with the berries, but because it educated me about something I didn't know before.  Their website.  Why I didn't know about it or think about it before I couldn't say, but it is bookmarked now for sure.  It certainly stands to reason that the people who grow the berries would have lots of great ideas of how to use them.

In fact, I want to share the wealth and pass on some of the coupons for the berries.  They are a great value at $2 off a package.  I have 3 of them to share, so that is $6 worth of beautiful in-season gorgeous berries from Driscoll's.  The coupons are good for any of their berries, so just to prove a point about what a gorgeous site and all the recipes that Driscoll's has, I nabbed a few more pictures and links for you.  After all, while it is still summertime, why not plan a whole meal featuring some ridiculously pretty berries.  Dessert is already taken care of above, prepare to drool over these ideas. Details to get the coupons are at the bottom.

OK, so now that you've seen just a taste of what they have come up with over at Driscoll's, head on over to their site, look around and tell me which recipe you would try first with your berries.  You have until this Saturday at noon MST to leave a comment on this post.  Drawing will be open to anyone in the United States or Canada and will be decided by  I can't wait to see what else you find on their site!

Wow. That is amazing. I love their berries. They actually recruited on the Berkeley campus but were not looking for accountants =[. Ah oh well. Anyways, I think that I would bake either the Raspberry Key Line pie with Raspberry-Tequila Sauce or the Mixed Berry Chocolate Molten Cakes.

I'd like to make the Triple Berry Oat Scones:) They have so many great recipes!

I would have to go with the Blackberry Gazpacho. But I would replace the red wine with Welch's Grape Juice.

The decadent raspberry cheesecake... I'm not a huge cheesecake person but I know for a fact I'd love that one!

Wow this is fantastic! I've always been a cheesecake fanatic but this really takes it to a whole new level.

Awesome giveaway! I would love the raspberry cilantro salsa stuffed into some tacos!

Gotta go with the raspberry cheesecake. I'm drooling. :D

Since my husband is trying to eat healthy and I'm trying to support him I didn't even tempt myself by looking at the desserts! (I may sneak a peak later though) I think I'd like to make the Chicken Breasts with Strawberry Red Wine Balsamic Sauce. To try something different with berries.

It would, without a doubt, HAVE to be that luscious chocolate/raspberry cheesecake. YUM!!!

Katrina said...

That cheesecake looks heavenly. I love raspberry/chocolate combo!

I love raspberries. I wouldn't want to hide them in a recipe. I'd only eat them plain.
