Ingredients



Crust

• 1 & 1/4 cups chocolate cookie crumbs (or 16 Oreo cookies, crushed)

• 1/4 cup melted butter


Cheesecake

• 750 grams full-fat cream cheese (3 regular-sized bricks), softened at room temperature

• 1 cup white sugar

• 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate

• 3 eggs

• 2 tsp. vanilla

• 2 tbsp. cocoa powder


Chocolate Ganache

• 1 8oz. bar semi-sweet chocolate, chopped

• 3/4 cup whipping cream

• 1/2 cup chocolate curls for topping (optional)



Instructions



Making the Crust

• Combine chocolate cookie crumbs with melted butter. Press into the bottom of a greased springform pan.


• Preheat oven to 350°F. 


• While the oven is pre-heating, bake the crust for 6 minutes to set, then remove from oven to cool.


Making the Cheesecake Filling

• Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring in-between. When melted, set aside to cool.


• Cream together the sugar and cream cheese until smooth in texture.


• Once melted chocolate is cooled, fold into cream cheese mixture. 


• Add in the eggs and vanilla, and fully combine.


• Fold in the cocoa powder until completely combined.


• Pour the cheesecake filling over the crust and lightly shake the pan to even out the batter. 


• Bake the cheesecake until the center is set and a toothpick comes out clean, roughly 50 to 60 minutes. 


• Cool on a rack for 5 minutes, then run a knife around the edges of the cheesecake to separate it from the pan (if needed).


• Set the cheesecake in the fridge to cool for at least 8 hours. 


Making the Chocolate Ganache

• In a medium-sized sauce pan stir together the chopped chocolate and whipping cream on low heat until fully melted.


• Remove from heat and leave to cool, about 10 minutes.


• Pour ganache overtop of the cheesecake, and return to fridge for an additional 30 minutes to set. 


• Sprinkle chocolate curls over the edges of the cheesecake before serving.
