The Cheesecake Factory is one of those rare institutions that have redesigned how the public thinks about a certain food. With an upscale dining atmosphere and a side café with all 36 flavors of cheesecake available for takeout, we can indulge on a fancy night out or at home in our pajamas watching Love Actually.
However even if you’re just getting a slice to go, these desserts rack up a tab. At about $9 per slice, these heavenly creations demand a special occasion. And when that occasion comes around and you can’t choose one of everything, here’s our Top 7 list to help you decide.
7. Lemon Raspberry Cream
Lemon mousse on creamy lemon cheesecake on raspberry ladyfingers on raspberry vanilla cake. Excuse me while I devour this with my own “lady fingers.” If you love lemon, try this peach lemon butter cake that will literally melt in your mouth, or these gluten-free lemon bars.
6. Adam’s Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple
This slice is swirled with Reese’s peanut butter cups, Butterfingers, and caramel. I don’t know who Adam is, but I think I want to propose to him. If you can’t get enough of peanut butter fudge, try this freezer fudge recipe or this fudge recipe which uses only three ingredients.
5. Oreo Dream Extreme
Cookies and cookies and more cookies on cheesecake. And baked in, too. Want to eat this cheesecake from the comfort of your own home? Try these Oreo cheesecake cookies or this single-serve mug Oreo cheesecake.
4. White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle
Cheesecake with raspberry swirls topped with white chocolate and a chocolate crust. They say you can’t describe food porn, but you know it when you see it. I’m definitely seeing it. If you’re craving raspberry now (we don’t blame you), try making this raspberry Prosecco sauce or this raspberry and blackberry cocktail.
3. Chris’ Outrageous Cheesecake
Chocolate cake + fudgy brownie + chocolate chip coconut cheesecake + coconut pecan frosting = world peace. Chris deserves a Nobel prize for this one. If you need more brownie in your life, we’ve got you covered with these brownie hacks, or try one of these next-level brownie recipes.
2. Ultimate Red Velvet
Layers of rich red velvet cake alternating with the smooth, creamy original cheesecake, topped with cream cheese frosting. Is that a heart attack, or am I falling in love? Wanna know how they make red velvet so… red? It all comes down to science. Still craving brownies from that outrageous cheesecake? Try these red velvet cheesecake brownies.
1. Fresh Strawberry
With some glazed berries topping a slice of original cheesecake, it’s almost healthy, right? Want a twist on the classic? Try this strawberry-glazed cheesecake. Or, if you’re gluten free, try this strawberry cheesecake instead.
Lucky for you, the Cheesecake Factory can also two-day ship full cheesecakes all over the U.S. It’s perfect for your next party, birthday or break up. But the good news is you no longer have to decide between all 36 options. We’ve got your back. If you want to have the ultimate Cheesecake Factory experience, you’ll want to follow these tips.
