Chocolate chip cheesecake recipe
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
6 hours
Yield: 12 servings
Indulge in a creamy cheesecake bursting with chocolate chips to satisfy your cravings! Featuring a chocolate crust, creamy cheesecake and silky ganache, this chocolate chip cheesecake is one of my favorites!
  • Crust
  • 8 oreo cookies or any cream filled chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Cheesecake
  • 2 1/2 cups (20 oz) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup Imperial Sugar® (or Dixie Crystals) Extra Fine Granulated Pure Cane Sugar
  • 3 Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Ganache
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  1. Heat the oven to 325F. Grease a 9 inch heavy duty pan . Wrap the outside of the pan with aluminum foil.
  2. In a food processor, add the Oreo cookies and the walnuts. Pulse until finely ground. Mix with the melted butter.
  3. Press the crust evenly on the bottom of the prepared pan. Refrigerate for 5 minutes while making the cheesecake filling.
  4. In a mixing bowl, add the cream cheese, yogurt and sugar. With the paddle attachment on, beat on low speed until just combined.
  5. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the eggs then add them to the cheese mixture. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  6. With a spatula, fold in 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
  7. Pour the cheesecake filling over the prepared crust.
  8. Place the cheesecake in a roasting pan filled with hot water. Make sure there's around 1 inch of water in the roasting pan otherwise the water will evaporate before the cheesecake is fully baked.
  9. Bake the cheesecake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.
  10. Turn the oven off, slightly open the door and leave the cheesecake to cool in the warm oven for about 2 hours.
  11. Remove from the oven and refrigerate 4 or more hours before slicing.
  12. Just before serving, spoon a little ganache over each slice of cheesecake.
  13. To make the ganache, add the chocolate chips and heavy cream to a heatproof bowl. Microwave for a couple of seconds until the chocolate is melted. Stir to combine.
  14. Pour a little ganache over each slice of cheesecake.

Valentine’s marshmallow pops

Fix some marshmallow on one end of the lollipop stick and place it into the chocolate. Add some sprinkles and let it dry. The kids will enjoy fixing the marshmallow and adding the sprinkles. Let the excess chocolate drip off before adding the sprinkles and ensure that the coating is not too thick.

Chocolate Strawberry hearts

Chocolate Strawberry hearts

Clean and dry the strawberries before cutting them in half. Cut a little bit more so that you achieve a heart shape then join the together with a tooth pick. Dry the berries before dipping them in chocolate. A thin layer will be ideal compared to a thick one. Add some sprinkles for fun or use different colors of chocolate to dress your chocolate strawberries.
