Dark chocolate cheesecake
Everyone loves a good cheesecake, right? Well this Dark Chocolate Cheesecake will blow your mind! It tastes sooooo good. Rich dark chocolate combined with creamy cheesecake. Topped with a nice and smooth chocolate glaze. Thats just perfect.
Cheesecake and chocolate cake in one. Creamy and crunchy at the same time: This Chocolate Cheesecake is simply heavenly! Because I love both types of cake, the development of the chocolate cheesecake recipe was a pure joy for me. A little bit of chocolate here, a little bit of chocolate there… ?. Done!
The result is a super creamy chocolate cheesecake with three layers. While most recipes are “no bake” in this direction, i.e. fridge locations, I have chosen a baked version. The crispy base consists of chocolate cookie crumbs, cornflakes and butter. The cheesecake cream consists of cream cheese and – of course! – lots of chocolate
