My friends wanted a chocolate cheesecake for Christmas. This is what I came up with. The crust is from this recipe. The cheesecake is from this recipe.


Brownie Bottom
  • 4 (1 ounce squares) of unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 4 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened

4 squares (1 ounce each) semisweet chocolate that has been finely chopped
1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream

Brownie Bottom
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a small pan over low heat melt the chocolate and the butter. (I chop the chocolate and butter into small pieces so that it melts faster) Stir until melted and combined.
  3. Next add 1-1/2 cups of sugar and mix well.
  4. Pour the chocolate mixture into a mixing bowl and add the 2 eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended.
  5. Then add the milk and the vanilla; mix well.
  6. Combine the flour and salt. Gradually add to chocolate mixture, mixing after each addition just until blended. Spread evenly into greased and floured 9-inch spring form pan. Bake for 25 minutes.
  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Gradually beat in cream. Add eggs; beat on low speed until combined.
  2. Stir in the melted chocolate.
  3. Bake the cheesecake on a baking sheet at 325 degrees for 65-75 minutes or until center is almost set.
  4. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife round edge of pan to loosen. Cool one hour longer.Place in fridge.
  1. Place the chopped chocolate in a small bowl to make the topping.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the cream to a boil. Pour over the chocolate. Whisk until smooth. Cool slightly and then pour on top of the cheesecake. Cover and chill overnight. Remove sides of pan.
