Triple Chocolate Cheesecake

Triple Chocolate Cheesecake

Oh my!  Check out this Triple Chocolate Cheesecake that not only looks absolutely amazing, but tastes even better!  This is one of those perfect desserts that people go “wow”over at dinner parties.   You could even change it around and decorate it as a Birthday Cheesecake which is what I did the first time I made it.  I originally found this gorgeous recipe over at Taste and looked around for the creative mystery person who put this one together, but for the life of me, I couldn’t find a name.  If you happen to know the person, I’d love to find out who it was so I can list their name on here as this is one cake that deserves a lot of credit!  It is absolutely divine.

I adapted a few things in this recipe as I couldn’t find the same ingredients as the original recipe mentioned.  Yes,  there is a LOT OF CHOCOLATE in this recipe.  You’ll love it!

If you need a measurement converter (like I usually do) this is the one I use here.

Ingredients

  • 300g plain chocolate biscuits (I used any sort of plain chocolate biscuit/cookie that I could find in the supermarket – it’ll work just fine.)
  • 125g butter, melted
  • 1 x 200g pkt Cadbury white chocolate baking block, coarsely chopped  (Or Nestle White Milk Chocolate)
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) boiling water
  • 3 teaspoons gelatine powder  (This was the hardest thing to find in the supermarket!)
  • 3 x 250g pkts cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup (100g) caster sugar
  • 300ml ctn thickened full cream
  • 1 x 200g pkt Cadbury MILK chocolate baking block, coarsely chopped (I used a block of plain old Cadbury Milk Chocolate for this one)
  • 1 x 200g pkt Cadbury DARK chocolate baking block, coarsely chopped (I used Green’s Organic Dark Chocolate for this one)
  • 100g Cadbury white chocolate melts
  • 250g punnet strawberries, washed, dried (I used raspberries to decorate on top of my cheesecake as they were in season)
  1. Grease and line the base and side of a 23cm (base measurement) springform pan.
  2. Place the biscuits in the bowl of a food processor and process until finely crushed. Add the butter and process until well combined. Transfer mixture to the prepared pan. Use a straight-sided glass to spread and press mixture firmly over the base and side of the pan. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.
  3. Place the Cadbury white chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir with a metal spoon until chocolate melts. Remove from heat.
  4. Place the boiling water in a small heatproof glass. Sprinkle over the gelatine. Stir until gelatine dissolves.
  5. Use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add the cream and beat until smooth. Add the gelatine mixture and stir until well combined. Add one-third of the cream cheese mixture to the white chocolate and stir to combine. Pour into the prepared pan and smooth the surface with the back of a spoon. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes or until the surface is set.
  6. Meanwhile, place the Cadbury milk chocolate in a heatproof bowl over saucepan of simmering water. Stir with a metal spoon until chocolate melts. Add half the remaining cream cheese mixture to the chocolate and stir to combine. Pour over the white-chocolate mixture and smooth the surface. Return to the freezer for a further 15 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, place the Cadbury dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and stir with a metal spoon until chocolate melts. Add to the remaining cream cheese mixture and stir to combine. Pour over the milk chocolate layer and smooth the surface. Place in the fridge for 3 hours or until set.
  8. Meanwhile, line an oven tray with baking paper. Place the Cadbury white chocolate melts in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir with a metal spoon until chocolate melts. Remove from heat. Dip a strawberry into the melted chocolate to lightly coat. Transfer to the lined tray. Repeat with remaining chocolate and strawberries. Set aside for 30 minutes to set.
  9. Transfer the cheesecake to a serving plate. Top with chocolate dipped strawberries to serve (or whatever fruit is in season in your area!)

 

Bon Appetit!
