Orange Cream Cheesecake made with MilkSplash Flavoring

 

The folks at MilkSplash and my friends at voiceBoks, are offering an exciting cooking contest and Twitter Party this month…The Splash Off!

One lucky winner will receive a $500.00 Visa gift card, for creating the best recipe using one of MilkSplash’s new Milk Flavoring products.

My entry for the contest is a luscious ricotta cream cheese orange cream cheesecake, decorated with candied orange slices.

The recipe utilizes MilkSplash Orange Cream Dream flavoring.

I added homemade candied orange slices to give the dessert a Thanksgiving twist. Their chewy-sweet texture counterbalanced by the smooth-dreamy creamsicle flavor of the MilkSplash flavoring, really hit the mark.  The addition of the Matzoh meal enhanced the texture as well as making the dish Kosher for the Holidays. 

Winner will be announced during the Twitter Party!

 
MilkSplash comes in six flavors: Horchata PiƱata, Cocoa Loco, Sir Strawberry Swirl, Orange Cream Dream, Cookies ‘N Cream, and Jammin’ Banana.
