Mocha Chip Cheesecake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. + chilling
The texture of this cheesecake wasn't as smooth as my recipe for mini chocolate chip cheesecake--but your idea to combine mocha with mini chocolate chips is fantastic!I have a very similar recipe that uses a 12-oz pkg of mini chocolate chips. Here is my recipe for the mini chocolate chip cheesecake that makes a very smooth cheesecake, without cornstarch, flour, or cream. (Of course, the only way to add dissolved coffee to your recipe is to dissolve it in cream.) I think I'll try that to change my mini chocolate chip cheesecake into a mocha cheesecake!For those who couldn't find chocolate cookies, their brand name is Nabisco Famous wafers.Preheat oven to 350 degrees and adjust oven rack to center of oven. Tightly wrap bottom of 9" greased springform pan. Set aside another pan that is not taller than the springform pan, but large enough to hold the springform pan (this is called a bain-marie).Beat 24 oz cream cheese with 1 cup sugar; blend in 1 tablespoon vanilla. Add 3 eggs, 1 at a time, completely beating the egg until there's no yellow before adding next egg. Add 8 oz sour cream; beat until smooth. Fold in mini chocolate chips; pour batter into springform pan. Place springform pan inside larger pan and add 1" boiling water in larger pan.Bake at 350 degrees 1 hour until edges are very pale brown and center 2" wiggles. Turn oven off. Place handle of wooden spoon between oven door and oven opening, to crack the door open; leave cheesecake in oven 1 hour. Remove cheesecake from oven and cool completely. Chill completely (at least 6 hours) before serving.
I made this for a party. I also couldn't find chocolate wafers so I used chocolate graham crackers and they worked great. I baked it 55 minutes and it didn't quite get done in the center. But it tasted awesome and everybody loved it!
What an awesome cheesecake!I'm so glad I made it.If you love coffee and chocolate this is the cheesecake for you. Thanks for the recipe.
I used 2 8 oz packages of cream cheese instead of 3 and only half the sugar in the crust, also only 3/4 cup sugar in the filling. Plenty sweet enough and very delicious, also discovered it taste better the next day!!
I have made this a couple of times. The first time I made it for a party. I couldn't fine wafers, so I used oreos the first time - the crust seemed a little tough, so I tried chocolate graham crackers the second time - worked much better. Everyone loved this cheesecake and wanted more!
This is a really good cheesecake. I couldn't find chocolate wafers so I used oreos for the crust instead. No complaints from my family. I also baked in a water bath.
