Knott’s Berry Farm to Debut a Deep-Fried Boysenberry Cheesecake for Annual Festival
The annual Knott’s Berry Farm Boysenberry Festival is almost upon us, which means dozens of both sweet and savory berry-themed treats for people to enjoy, but none perhaps as anticipated as some deep-fried cheesecake.
NBC Los Angeles reports that about 70 edibles will be featured at this year’s festival.
A new item for 2016 is “The Fun Stick,” which is described as a “culinary masterpiece that perfectly combines a creamy boysenberry cheesecake, funnel cake, and boysenberry cream.”
FoodBeast describes “The Fun Stick” in detail. It is a cheesecake on a stick dipped in funnel cake batter and then deep fried. It is topped with boysenberry cream (made fresh at the park, of course) and dusted with powdered sugar. As a result of the deep frying process, the cheesecake’s graham cracker crust falls apart, giving the final product an “empanada-like appearance.”
The Boysenberry Festival begins in March 19 and runs through April 3.
