My very favorite ice cream flavor is WITHOUT A DOUBT mint chocolate chip. I remember as a kid going to Baskin Robbins and getting a giant waffle cone and having them fill it as full as they could and eating every bite of it! Many years ago after I overcame my cheesecake fear, I started making cheesecakes on the reg. I honestly can’t remember where the original Mint Chocolate Chip Cheesecake recipe came from, but it is now so committed to memory and has been tweaked a little each time that I don’t even need it for reference. One of the most important tweaks from the original recipe was abandoning the Oreo cookie crust and replacing it with its’ super sweet counterpart vanilla wafers. A lot of cheesecakes call for graham cracker crust, but Holy wafers, Batman!! the vanilla wafer crust makes the cheesecake taste JUST LIKE mint chocolate chip ice cream in a waffle cone. This cheesecake has definitely become a family favorite for holiday get-togethers.
