Triple Chocolate Cheesecake with Oreo Crust
A Triple Chocolate Cheesecake with Oreo Crust is bound to meet the chocolate needs of any chocaholic in your house, or at least, we certainly hope so! This dessert is loaded with various chocolates throughout the dessert that contribute to giving it big flavor and texture. If you check out the web site, Oh My God Chocolate Desserts, you will see just how rich and creamy and delicious this dessert will be when you make it for your family for dinner tonight. This recipe is entirely made from scratch, as well, and so the flavor will be truly fabulous in this Triple Chocolate Cheesecake with Oreo Crust.
The cake begins with the quintessential crust that we expect in a cheesecake, made from graham wafers. In this recipe, the graham wafers are replaced with Oreo cookies that you crush. They give the same lovely and slightly grainy texture to the crust that is classic cheese cake, but a great chocolate taste. The filling has a whopping two pounds of cream cheese. Many recipes will only call for 16 ounces or perhaps 24 ounces of cream cheese. So this cake will be a big one, and full of cream cheese flavor. There are also 10 ounces of bitter sweet chocolate added to the filling alone, so this will have plenty of chocolate taste.
The topping is a wonderful ganache that combines the rich flavor of chocolate with cream. Nothing can beat that combination for richness and smoothness. And it will flow beautifully over the cheese cake as an icing for it. Do not skip the cooling steps and steps that let this cheese cake sit over night. That allows the cake to settle, which is important for good texture. It is a cake that will take some time to produce, at least two days, but its beauty and flavor will make the effort well worth it. Enjoy this cake soon.
