Chocolate Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

Our family loves cheesecake... and for his birthday cake, my son wanted cheesecake..... and he wanted chocolate cheesecake. I asked if he wanted chocolate inside the cake or on top. He said, "BOTH".  :)  So, using my basic cheesecake recipe, I adjusted it and made a Chocolate Chocolate Cheesecake.

 I didn't take a picture of the batter, but this is when I just took it out of the oven.
 Here is where I put sour cream on the hot cheesecake and then I put it back into the oven for 5 minutes.
 The sour cream also helps to keep all of these chocolate chips in place... I used a mixture of milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate.
 Side view... looks good. :)
It tasted great. My son (the birthday guy) said it was the BEST cheesecake he's ever had. Of course, I have heard that before, so either they are getting better and better.... or every time he has cheesecake, it just always tastes the "best" to him. :)









                    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
   Chocolate Chocolate Cheesecake  
        Crust Super Simple Shortbread Bars
       1 cup butter, softened
           1/2 cup sugar
           1 tsp vanilla
            2 1/2 cups flour 
       Mix all together and press into bottom of greased 9" x 13" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. 
        Filling    
       4 - 8 oz packages cream cheese, softened
           1 1/2 cups sugar                                                 Beat cream cheese and sugar well.
           1/4- 1/2 cup cocoa , depending on taste             Beat in.
           2 tsp. vanilla                                                       Beat in.
           1 cup sour cream                                                Add
           4 eggs           
          (1 cup sour cream mixed w/ 2 tsp sugar.... Save this for AFTER baking...)
           2 cups chocolate chips (milk and semi sweet)....save chips for AFTER baking...

           Add eggs one at a time and beat just enough to mix in. Make sure well blended, but don't overblend.  Pour onto baked crust -cool is best, but in a time crunch hot works fine, either way.  Bake at 335 degrees for 45-60 minutes... start checking at 45 minutes and leave until  looks almost done in the center. Remove cheesecake from oven - spread sour cream and sugar mixture on hot cake as best as you can.... bake for another 5 minutes. Remove cheesecake and add chocolate chips. Let cool on rack enough (at least an hour) and then chill.  Enjoy. :)

    1. Oh, good, I hope she likes it. :) I sometimes add nuts to the top also, but the son who had the birthday is sensitive to nuts, so we didn't.... but nuts are great on it too. :) Thank you for visiting.

    1. The kids like it in the 9" x 13" pan because it is much easier to clean than the springform pan. We make cheesecake quite a bit and this simplifies it. :)

  12. Oh my! This sweet treat has my husband's name written all over it! I'm not a chocolate fan, but I like to make something chocolate for him (and guests, because I'm the only weirdo who doesn't love it!) every once in a while.
