Chocolate Cheesecake, a simple yet elegant offering.

Chocolate Cheesecake. After those two words, not much is needed to get one's attention! This easy to make dessert looks quite impressive and your guests will love it. Chocolate Cheesecake, it is the go-to dessert for the chocolate lovers in your family...


While I prefer whole grain, naturally sweetened baked goods, every now and again, my dear husband requires deserves a dessert that is a bit more indulgent. This Chocolate Cheesecake is just that dessert. It is rich and chocolatey, and cheesecake, which all his favorite flavors in one spectacular dessert! 

I know that for many cheesecake is the dessert of choice for any and all special gatherings. This is easily verified by all the different cheesecake recipes available with a quick google search. We even have a delicious, Blueberry Breakfast Cheesecake that we bake and serve when we have guests for brunch. 


While you do not need to serve this Chocolate Cheesecake with anything, fresh strawberries in the springtime and raspberries throughout the summer offer a nice finish. For all other times, a little whipped cream and shaved chocolate are quite festive...we have even enjoyed fresh slices of persimmons in the fall.

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • cracker or bread crumbs
  • baking cocoa
  • butter 
  • sugar
  • eggs
  • cream cheese
  • chocolate chips
  • flour
  • vanilla

You will also need the following:

  • measuring cups and spoons
  • glass measuring cup or bowl
  • mixing bowl
  • hand or stand mixer
  • spatula
  • springform pan

Now we are ready to begin!
