What are fun toppings to pair with cheesecake?

Cheesecake is a creamy and decadent dessert that pairs well with various toppings. While some may prefer classic toppings such as fresh berries or whipped cream, there are countless other fun and creative options.

For example, caramel sauce and sea salt add a sweet and salty contrast to the richness of the cheesecake.

Chocolate lovers may enjoy a drizzle of hot fudge or chopped chocolate pieces on top.

Adding fresh fruit, such as sliced kiwi or pineapple, can provide a refreshing flavor. Crushed cookies or nuts make a delicious topping for those seeking a bit of crunch.

Overall, the possibilities of fun and delicious toppings to pair with cheesecake are endless, making it a versatile dessert perfect for any occasion.
