Triple Chocolate Cheesecake with Oreo Crust Recipe

This triple chocolate cheesecake dessert is very simple but so rich in taste! I often prepare this dessert because my husband loves his weekend rituals – a piece of triple chocolate cheesecake and a cup of coffee. Here is the recipe: Triple Chocolate Cheesecake with Oreo Crust Recipe

Ingredients:

For the Crust:

  • 24 Oreo cookies finely crushed
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or rum extract

For Cheesecake Filling:

  • 2 lbs. cream cheese- room temperature
  • 1 1/3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 Tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 4 eggs- room temperature
  • 10 ounces bittersweet chocolate chopped

For Chocolate Topping:

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 6 oz. bittersweet chocolate finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar

 

Instructions:

To make the crust:

  • Preheat oven to 350F/ 180C/ Gas Mark 4, grease a 9-inch spring form pan and set aside.
  • Finely crush the cookies in a food processor, add melted butter and vanilla/ rum extract and blend until it’s all moistened.
  • Press crumb mixture onto the bottom of the prepared pan and bake for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and set on a wire rack to cool while making the filling.

To make the filling:

  • Melt 10 ounces bittersweet chocolate and set aside to cool.
  • Mix cream cheese and sugar until smooth, mix in cocoa powder
  • Add the eggs one at a time, mixing on low speed and do not overbeat it.
  • Add melted chocolate and mix on low speed to combine.
  • Pour the filling over the crust and smooth the top.
  • Bake the cheesecake until the center is set and the top looks dry (about 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes).
  • Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then run a thin knife around the sides of the pan and set the cake in the refrigerator (uncovered), for at least 8 hours, or better overnight.

To make the topping:

  • In a medium saucepan stir together cream, chocolate, and sugar on low heat until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
  • Cool and pour over the cheesecake.
  • When the topping is set and cooled again run a thin knife around the sides and remove the springform pan sides.
  • This cheesecake can be prepared up to 2-3 days in advance just store covered in the refrigerator.
  • Garnish with chocolate curls (optional). Serve.
