Triple Chocolate Cheesecake

What’s better than cheesecake? A triple chocolate cheesecake! This chocolate cheesecake is super rich, thick, creamy and soft. It’s got the perfect amount of sweetness and tons of chocolate in every layer.

The crust is made with crushed oreo’s and butter and the cheesecake is topped with a nice helping of chocolate ganache.

This chocolate cheesecake does require some prep time and a bit of patience. Once the cheesecake is cooked it sits in the fridge for at least 8 hours to chill before you can slice into it.

The ganache is super easy to whip up. Just chocolate and heavy cream melted and poured on top. Spread the ganache on top of the cooled cheesecake and place back in the fridge to allow it to set.

How to make Chocolate Ganache

I top the Triple Chocolate Cheesecake off with a simple Chocolate Ganache. The ganache is super easy to whip up. To make the chocolate ganache melt semi sweet chocolate chips and heavy cream in the microwave until smooth and melted. You can also cook the ganache over a double boiler. Allow the ganache to cool for about 2-3 minutes. Spread on top of the cooled cheesecake and place in the fridge to allow it to set.
