This chocolate chip cheesecake with chocolate mousse is so rich, creamy and delicious! It goes perfectly with a nice glass of prosecco or champagne. I love spending time with my husband on the balcony, especially after lunch with a generous piece of this chocolate mousse cake and a drink. Here is the recipe:

Easy Chocolate Chip Cheesecake


For the base:

  • 1½ cup chocolate crumbs
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

For the cheesecake layer:

  • 2 boxes cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup mini chocolate chips

For the chocolate mousse:

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 egg yolks
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coffee, cooled
  • ½ cup heavy cream – whipped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract



To make the crust:

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F/ 165°C/ Gas Mark 3. In a medium bowl combine the sugar, butter, and crumbs.
  • Press the mix into the bottom and up the sides of a springform pan and bake for 7 minutes.

To make the chocolate layer:

  • In the meantime, beat the sugar and cheese together until light and fluffy. Put the eggs, vanilla, and lemon juice. Mix until combined then add the chocolate chips.
  • Then, pour the mixture over the crust. Bake for 40 minutes.
  • Next, cool in the fridge before topping with the mousse layer.

To make the mousse layer:

  • Melt the butter and chocolate chips in a medium saucepan. In a separate bowl whisk together the vanilla, coffee, sugar, and egg yolks.
  • Add a few tablespoons of chocolate in the egg mixture to bring up to temperature. Put the eggs into the saucepan and stir over low heat until you reach 160 degrees.
  • Put the pan in ice water to cool, around 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Beat the cream and slightly fold into the chocolate. Apply the mousse over the cheesecake and place in the fridge for about 2 hours to set.
