Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 45 min. + chilling
First of all this tastes divine. The 3 stars are because the crust was far too thin and the topping was 3 times thicker than needed. It was impossible to cut without cracking that thick topping, so presentation was not great. On the plus side, I added whipped cream and homemade raspberry sauce to cover the ugly, cracked top presentation. Highly recommend these additions as they also cut the sweetness. A little of this goes a long way, so being able to cut smaller servings is important to me. Going to make again in the future with these mods.
For my husband and I it was okay. My daughter in law loves it. Instead of the ganache topping, I used a hot fudge topping.
This cheesecake is amazing!! So smooth and rich. And it is not hard to make at all!!! I used crushed up chocolate teddy grahams for the crust. Would decrease the amount of vanilla in the ganache if you use real vanilla. Am going to try this with dark chocolate next time instead of semi-sweet. Brought this in for work and the girls loved it!!! Will be making this again very soon.
I made this and won first prize at the church dessert/chili contest. Thanks Taste of Home! It was easy and delicious.

Can’t decide if the flavor outshines the presentation! Outstanding rich and creamy texture with deep chocolate flavor. Served with fresh raspberries. Absolutely a winner.
This is the ultimate chocolate rush dessert! Wow! It goes together quick and easy. I did add a little more cream to the topping so it stayed soft.
I thought this cheesecake was very good. I loved the cookie crust, which I used crushed up Oreos, one of my favorite parts of the cheesecake! . The filling was excellent. My family enjoyed it and not a sliver was left. The reason I gave it 4 stars was bc I didn’t really care for the chocolate topping. It was too thick and hard to cut into. I just peeled that layer off. My kids and husband seemed to enjoy it all though. Next time I’m either going to try a different topping or leave it off all together.
Made two cheesecakes for my dad’s 81st birthday party. Absolutely delicious and quick. I also tried the Lemony White Chocolate cheesecake listed here. Both are heavenly and wiped out clean. No leftovers darn! I too agree a tiny bit more cream in the topping would have helped with the spreading consistency of the chocolate topping.
Awesome recipe! Made it today exactly as written for Easter dessert and it was so delicious! Everyone loved it. Will definitely be a go to recipe.
