Chocolate cheesecake


  • 250 g of cookies
  • 150 g of butter
  • 2 tablets of dark chocolate
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar (or sugar)
  • 750 g of Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 500 g of sour cream


Let's make the base first.

  1. Grind the cookies using a blender. It's better to use chocolate cookies, but if you don't have them, use any kind of cookie and add a bit of melted chocolate.
  2. Add the butter and a little bit of cinnamon (but no more than 1/2 teaspoon).
  3. Grease a round mold with butter and place the cookies at the bottom, slightly pressing them down.
  4. Cover the mold with kitchen film and put it in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Now we make the filling.

  1. Melt the dark chocolate over a water bath.
  2. Whisk the eggs together with powdered sugar to create stiff peaks.
  3. Keep on whisking and add the chocolate, cream cheese, vanilla and sour cream.
  4. Mix everything well to get a smooth cream.
  5. Preheat the oven to 160° C. Spread the filling over the base and smooth the surface. Bake for 1 hour.
  6. Turn off the oven, open the door and let the cheesecake sit for 2 hours.
  7. Take the cheesecake out of the oven carefully and place it in the fridge for 5 to 7 hours.
  8. You can garnish the cheesecake with whipped cream or chocolate icing.

How to make chocolate icing.

  1. Bring the cream to a boil.
  2. Break the chocolate into chunks and melt them in the cream, stirring until you get a smooth paste.
  3. Carefully place the icing on top and smooth it with a spatula.
  4. If you want to make something unusual, place melted white chocolate on the icing and draw a 'spider web' using a toothpick.
