10 inch pan: I trippled the base. Used the same amounts for the filling. I used a steambath and kept my heat at 325 F for 45min and turned heat off leaving cake in oven for a few hours to cool completely. No cracks.. perfect. I Iced it with with ganache; equal part heavy/whipping cream & semisweet choc chips. Boil cream, remove from heat quickly pour over choc chips and whisk till smooth. Cool 10-20min before icing the cold cake. Don't fridge until it has cooled for at least 25min on the cake. Dress with rasberries.
Fantastic! My youngest daughter has been begging me to make a chocolate cheesecake for a while now. I made it today and she and my husband LOVED it! Thanks for sharing!!!. I think next time I will try to put a layer of chocolate mousse on top like they do at the "Cheesecake Factory" endless possibilities!!
I have been looking for a chocolate cheesecake recipe and this one is a winner! It's very rich, so cut the slices small. I added a little coffee to the filling and used a store bought oreo cookie base that came in it's own pie pan. The pie pan was filled to the top but it didn't overflow. Thanks for the great recipe.
This was very very rich.Too tasty and I had to stop myself sneaking to the fridge to take another small slice....I made it for my daughter's party-doubled it up too! I also did a whipping cream and semi-sweet chocolate ganache on top-yummo. Best served with plain whipped cream as it is too sweet to serve with icecream, I will make again a definite keeper.Thankyou!!
Everyone really liked this. I thought it tasted more like a flourless chocolate cake then a cheesecake. Super chocolatey! :)
i thought it was alright, but no one in my family liked it at all, not even a 3 year old, its very dense and one dimensional, yes i used good chocolate
My lovely DIL is extremely sensitive to gluten but loves chocolate,so I took a chance and made the crust with crushed cornflakes mixed with butter.It was surprisingly good.A nice neutral tasting crust made the filling really shine. Great recipe.
Awesome! Very rich but everyone loved it. They all started with a sliver of a piece and went back for more.
I couldn't find the chocolate wafers at the grocery store, so I made a crust with 18 chocolate cream filled Oreo's and 1/4 cup of melted butter. This was the second cheesecake I've ever made in my life, and it's been at least 5 years since I made the first. Well it will not be another 5 years before I made a cheesecake again. This was amazing!! This was definitely restaurant quality. This was so rich, like eating a truffle. I topped it with Jeni's Chocolate Ganache #97213. Made this Friday, started digging into it Saturday night. It's now Sunday and it's gone! Will definitely be making this again and again.
This is the first chocolate cheescake I ever made .... no words can describe it - absolutely a 100 stars!!! My boyfriend was amazed - he just loves cheesecake...thanks for getting me brownie points! Followed another poster's suggestion, glazed the cake with chocolate ganache and served with real whipped cream. I used an Oreo cookie crust. This cake should have a warning label....just like eating truffles!!! Next time I am going to go overboard and spoon cherry pie filling over the cake then add whipping cream!!! Thanks so much for such a great recipe MizzNezz...you are my hero!!!
