If you are a fan of a homemade breakfast that you can put together in minutes, this recipe is for you! I love the entire pancakes, eggs, and bacon traditional breakfast of course, but typically we have these larger breakfasts on weekends.

During the week, it's more about getting a good start to the day and moving on. I am excited to share this Chocolate Chunk Cheesecake Spread, which you can make ahead. Enjoy a hot toasted Bays English Muffin with this spread, and it's ready before the coffee is done brewing!

Bays English Muffins are a great staple to have in the kitchen for breakfasts. Since they are so much lighter than bagels, you're not going to be as weighed down after eating. Plus, we all know English Muffins are more forgiving on calories and carbs than many other breakfast breads!

This recipe uses sweet ingredients, but feel free to substitute the chocolate chips with sugar free Lily's chips if you're trying to stick to a lower sugar breakfast. I also included the option to substitute the cream cheese for the low fat Nuefchatel Cheese. I often substitute this out and you really cannot tell the difference if there are multiple flavors in the recipe.

Make It:

This spread is made in the mixer, but you can also use a hand blender. The key to creamy spread without clumps of cream cheese is to soften it well before mixing. I prefer to soften on the counter and just use it when it's coming to room temp. In a pinch, I've soften in the microwave but it can pop and also curdle if you're not careful so you need to stay right with it!

Just mix other ingredients after cream cheese is softened.  I love the addition of the dried cherries here… it's such a pretty final result and really gives that cheesecake flavor to the spread!  If your mix is room temp or warm, you can refrigerate if desired. Personally I do not mind room temp spreads on my Bays English Muffins, since I toast the bread anyway.

Finally, you can always make this spread as a lovely homemade addition if someone is bringing breakfast to the office, Sunday School class or brunch.

  1. I like that it is cheesecake, that would be delicious. I bet the chocolate (if thats not your thing) could be substituted with almost anything like fruits to give it a change of pace too.

  2. This sounds yummy! I make a dip similar to this at Christmas time. There’s hardly any leftovers! I like the addition of dried cherries.
