Ideas for cheesecake topping include strawberries, blueberries, pineapple and kiwi, among other fruit-based ingredients. Nut-based ingredients, such as cashews, walnuts and pecans, are also popular cheesecake toppings.
The Daily Meal provides recipes for chocolate ganache and peanut butter sauces on its website, both of which are suitable for cheesecake. To make chocolate ganache, pour boiling heavy cream over chocolate chips and let it sit for two minutes. Mix the ingredients with a whisk until smooth. To make peanut butter sauce, microwave peanut butter with honey or corn syrup in a bowl for 30 seconds. Stir the mixture once after heating.
