I wanted to make a new dessert to add for the holidays. I combined a chocolate ganache with a no bake cheese cake layer topped with a Cranberry topping in a graham cracker crust. The combination works very well together.i also think a cherry topping would taste delicious with this pie as well. I will be adding this to my Christmas dessert list. I hope you all enjoy it! :-)
