A cheesecake based on the Ferrara Chocolate Orange Candy.
This recipe goes a step further by adding caramel.
A step beyond that as well, because the Ferrara Chocolate Orange Candy doesn’t have a crust, but our Ferrara Cheesecake does.
The crust is prepared of oats, almonds, and pecans. Then brought together with real butter and sweetened with sugar.
Oranges top the cheesecake, and their peels are included as well.
Are you aware of the benefits of the orange peel?
Most of the vitamin C of citrus fruit, like the orange, is found in the peel.
The peel also contains vitamin A, B-complex vitamins, and minerals such as calcium, selenium, manganese, and zinc.
Selenium works hand in hand with CoQ10 to provide the energy your heart needs to keep pumping.
