If you are planning to serve more than 4 people I would suggest to make two of these as everyone will want seconds! Plan ahead this needs to chill for at least 3 hours before serving.

This is a super simple cheescake that tastes like it took hours to make. I made my own graham cracker crust instead a store bought one. I added mint essence to the ganche topping as well as to the cheesecake mix itself. When it was glazed, I sprinkled Andes mint chips over the top for extra flavor and decoration. it was a huge hit! Thanks, Kittencall. I can always rely on you for an amazing recipe.
