This beautiful-looking cheesecake tart comes together in just 10 minutes...seriously, 10 minutes! It's the perfect, easiest dessert for one thanks to the utilization of the microwave and a few creative ingredients. Simply place the low-fat cream cheese in a cup and microwave until it's softened, which literally takes seconds. Stir in some powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and the creamy topping for your pizzelle is finished. Sprinkle crushed peppermint candies and bittersweet chocolate over top, and leave it to hang out in the fridge until it's firm and cool—and that's all it takes to make this satisfying treat to end your night on a high note.
