Triple Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

Every Sunday my boyfriend and I take it in turns with our friends to host dinner. We alternate week by week who hosts and cooks dinner and who bring dessert and wine. It has become our own little tradition and has been going for over 5 months. This has meant that the challenge has become finding new and delicious things to cook each week. This week it was my turn to make dessert so I made a Triple Chocolate Cheesecake for the first time.

My Triple Chocolate Cheesecake

The cheesecake was a great success and so delicious, although a little sickly, after an amazing Ukrainian dinner of perogy’s nobody was asking for a second piece. However it made a delicious snack the next day (for each of the four of us). Here is the recipe;

Ingredients

  • 400g of Chocolate Digestive Biscuits
  • 75g of Butter
  • 800g of Cream Cheese
  • 4 heaped tbsp of Icing Sugar
  • 100g of Dark Chocolate
  • 300g of Milk Chocolate
  • 100g of White Chocolate

Method

  1. Ground the chocolate digestives until fine
  2. Melt the butter and allow to cool slightly
  3. Mix the butter and ground biscuits into a bowl and squeeze together with the back of a wooden spoon
  4. Tip into a 26cm spring form tin
  5. Push down to compact in a flat even surface
  6. Mix the cream cheese and icing sugar together gently (this does not take long)
  7. Melt 3/4 of the dark and milk chocolate together in a glass bowl
  8. Add the cream cheese dollop by dollop into the chocolate, continually stirring until you get an evenly coloured mixture
  9. Poor on top of the biscuit base then smooth and flatten
  10. Chill for 2 hours
  11. When it has cooled melt the rest of the dark, milk and white chocolate in a glass bowl, as it melts stir as little as possible to get a swirl in the colouring
  12. Pour on top of the cheesecake and move the tin around to spread the topping evenly
  13. Chill until the chocolate topping is set
  14. Before taking the cheesecake out of the tin run a knife that has been heated by warm water around the edge to ensure it does not stick

The recipe is really simple, but it is time consuming and extremely messy! However I can promise you that the results are more than worth the effort for a delicious cheesecake.
