Triple-Chocolate Cheesecake

Recipe photo courtesy of David Loftus

An American-born beauty, the cheesecake gets upgraded with a triple dose of chocolate. It's in the crust, in the filling, and over the top. To help prevent cracks, turn off the oven and let the cheesecake sit inside for an hour. To cut the cleanest slices, use a knife dipped in warm water.

    Spectacular recipe. One of the top two cheesecake recipes I have ever made. Extended family informed me I would be bringing this from now on. Followed recipe, but mixed in a bowl with hand mixer.

    Made this recipe exactly and it came out fantastic! The crust behaved when cutting and the taste/texture was incredible. I added grated orange rind to the batter and it gave it a great added zing. Totally recommend it!

      I made this with low-fat cream cheese, low fat sour cream and 1 cup of Truvia sugar. Used reduced fat Oreo cookies for the crust. Excellent! I will definitely make this again.

    I've read the recipe and plan to make this fabulous sounding cheesecake. I do have a concern though, in the recipe, a food processor was used, will using a mixer instead of the processor change the outcome?

    Wonderful! I wrapped the spring-form tin in 3 layers of foil and baked cheesecake in a water bath for 1 hour; then let it sit in the oven for another hour -- no cracks. Came out perfectly. Added the ganache and served it with a raspberry sauce. Rave reviews. I have made this before without the water bath and ended up with cracks. I highly recommend using a water bath. ENJOY!

    I want to try this recipe for Easter dinner. Question: Do I need to bake it in a water bath? I don't want any cracks and will cool it properly, but noticed the recipe doesn't call for a water bath. Those of you that have tried this recipe and haven't had cracks, please chime in :-D Thanks so much everyone!

    Amazing!! It's so simple and cheap to make. I brought to a company party and everyone raved about how good it was. It's very sweet and heavy, so if you don't like that kind of thing avoid this recipe. I loved it!!!

    This cheesecake was simple and it turned out perfect! It was difficult to NOT open the oven for two hours but indeed it turned out WONDERFUL! I agree about adding more cream to the frosting. I did 1/2 cup and it turned out great for consistency given the refrigeration...

    Great recipe! Everyone loved it, although there was one notable comment. The sweetness was just right, but it seemed that the sourness lingered a little too long. I had used the Trader Joe's brand of semisweet morsels. I think the sourness could be balanced better with a richer, higher quality chocolate. Otherwise, I'm very happy with the result!

    Totally excellent cheesecake ! I forgot to buy enough cream cheese so I substituted yogurt and creme fraiche ... also didn't have enough semi-sweet chocolate so I added 100% chocolate powder (I had Valhrona) and so added some extra sugar (I used brown sugar). It was delicious ! I recevied MANY compliments :)
