Oh my gosh, are you drooling? Because I sure am.

Too bad I polished off the last slice of this heaven earlier today. You know me, chocolate is my greatest weakness. And when you add it to the creamiest cheesecake, the combination is simply irresistible!

But I’m happy to reported I didn’t eat the whole thing by myself. I mustered every bit of discipline and brought it out to the ranch, where it didn’t get a chance of surviving more than 2 days.

This cheesecake is everything: rich, creamy, moist and dense, just how an amazing chocolate cheesecake should be.

And it’s infused with chocolate in every layer: in the crust, the filling and the topping. And we’re talking Oreo cookie crust – the best yet!! No, no skimping on chocolate here, that’s for sure.

I seriously wish I could pass a fork to you so you can take your first bite right now, right here. But the technology isn’t there yet (and I really hope it’ll be soon!), so you’ll just have to get in the kitchen and bake it for yourself.

And before I let you go, let me tease you with a few more images of this marvelous cheesecake.

Supreme Chocolate Cheesecake

Insanely decadent chocolate cheesecake for your indulgence! It’s like biting into creamy chocolate truffle, but in a cheesecake form.

Yield: 16 servings

Ingredients:

For crust:
  • 18 Oreo cookies (about 1 1/2 cups of crushed cookies)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
For filling:
  • 2 cups (12oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 packages (24oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14oz/400gr) sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (125gr) sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder, optional
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
For ganache:
  • 1 cup (240ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 4oz semi-sweet chocolate, chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Wrap 9-inch springform pan with double layer of aluminum foil.
  2. In a small food processor, process the cookies until fine crumbs. Add melted butter and pulse until well combined.
  3. Press onto the bottom of prepared cake pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
  4. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips in 30-second increments at 50% power until nice and smooth.
  5. In a large mixing bowl with whisk attachment, beat cream cheese until fluffy.
  6. Add sweetened condensed milk and beat until smooth.
  7. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one.
  8. Add sour cream and give another good stir.
  9. Then stir in flour, espresso powder, vanilla extract and salt.
  10. Add melted chocolate. Mix until smooth, 1-2 minutes.
  11. Pour the batter into the prepared crust.
  12. Set the cake pan in a roasting pan and pour hot water up to half way of cheesecake pan. (Alternatively, if you don’t have large enough pan, you can fill another baking pan with hot water and place it on the bottom rack below the cheesecake pan.)
  13. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until the center is almost to set. Open the oven door ajar and cool for an hour.
  14. Remove the cake on wire rack, and then in 10 minutes carefully run a knife around the edge of the pan. Cool until room temperature, and then refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours, or preferably overnight.
  15. To make the ganache, heat heavy whipping cream in the microwave until hot.
  16. Pour it over chopped chocolate. Let it sit for 2 minutes and then stir until smooth. Immediately pour the ganache over the cheesecake. Chill until set and serve.

  1. This is my first time making a cheesecake in the oven. I watched the video and I didn’t see foil on the pan. What do you mean by wrapping the pan in foil twice?

  2. In regards to the chocolate, Is that 30 second increments, not minute right?

  3. When you add the sour cream into the filling? 

  4. Hello I am allergic to eggs do you have to have eggIess cheesecake? What would you use instead?

  5. Love it! Pinning to try it!

  6. I would give anything for a slice of that right now!

  7. This chocolate cheesecake is a chocolate lover’s dream!! Thanks for sharing!!!
