This heavenly Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe is any chocolate lover’s dreams come true! Our delicious cheese cake recipe will make your mouth water even before your begin baking!
- 1 ½ cups chocolate wafer crumbs
- 1/3 cup melted unsalted butter
- 8 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chopped chocolate
- 24 ounces cream cheese
- 1 cup white sugar
- 3 large eggs
- ½ cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup miniature chocolate chips
To make the crust, combine the chocolate wafer crumbs and melted butter. Press the crust into a 9" spring form pan and set it aside.
For the filling, melt the chocolate pieces in a double boiler. Stir until the chocolate is smooth. In a separate bowl, combine the cream cheese and sugar. When the chocolate is melted, add it to the cream cheese mix and stir until it is well blended. Add the eggs one at a time and stir gently until the batter is well mixed. Pour the mix into the crust and place the spring form pan into a water bath.
Bake the cheesecake at 350 Degrees for 50 to 55 minutes. Jiggle the cake gently. If the center wobbles, the cheesecake is done. Remove the cake from the oven and slide a knife around the sides of the cheesecake to loosen it from the pan. Let the cake cool to room temperature and refrigerate it for a few hours.
To make the chocolate topping, heat the whipping cream to a boil. Remove it from the heat and add the chocolate chips. Wisk the topping until it is well blended. Allow the chocolate topping to cool and spoon it on top of the cheesecake about two hours before the cake is served.
Time to grab a pan and start baking your chocolate cheesecake! Don’t forget, cheesecakes make the perfect gift or treat just for you.
