Peppermint Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe – a thick and creamy chocolate cheesecake with chocolate ganache and pieces of peppermint candy
What do you serve for dessert on Christmas? My husband’s family has Grasshopper Pie. I look forward to it every year. When I was growing up my family would have pumpkin pie, because our Christmas dinner was pretty much a Thanksgiving repeat. But since high school Christmas dinner has changed, and we don’t seem to have a go to dessert anymore. Sometimes it is just Christmas cookies, sometimes it is pumpkin pie, sometimes it is something completely different. This year I think I need to start the tradition of this peppermint chocolate cheesecake!
This chocolate cheesecake recipe is pretty easy to put together. To make sure the cheesecake stays dense and creamy be careful not to over mix and incorporate too much air into the batter. This will lead to a super creamy, thick, and delicious chocolate cheesecake. You can also determine how sweet or dark you want the chocolate. I used 1/2 unsweetened, 1/2 semi-sweet chocolate for my cheesecake, which led to a relatively dark chocolate taste. A great pairing with the peppermint! If you want it sweeter, use more semi-sweet chocolate. Super easy! I used my Blendtec Blender to make quick work of the Oreo’s for the crust. Couldn’t be quicker!
I brought part of this chocolate cheesecake to our neighbors the other day. They were super excited, and later that day they returned the tray. Apparently it was a huge hit! So impress your holiday guests this year with this chocolate cheesecake recipe. It will come together quickly, and everyone will be asking you for the recipe!
