Banana Walnut Cheesecake



The first time I had this cheesecake was from QVC...My neighbor purchased this cheesecake and was telling me how very good it was and gave me a slice. I decided then that I could make this. I really only make it during the holidays.

Very simple very easy but exquisite cheesecake. The taste is wonderful.

The cheesecake from QVC used chocolate biscotti but I used a banana cake mix and added walnuts to the crust.

The milk chocolate chip just adds the perfect finishing touch.

I will be adding a picture as soon as I make it.
