Triple choc cheesecake

photo 4So today we have a triple layered cheesecake, which uses milk, white and dark chocolate! It’s set in different layers, which are set at different times, sure it will take a bit of time, and will make a hell of a lot of washing up, but the end result is defiantly worth it!

The dish here is served with a homemade toffee sauce and chantilly cream, and the combination works superbly!

To make the triple layered cheesecake, i just adapted a normal chocolate cheesecake recipe,  this was done  by dividing the recipe into three, to make three separate flavored cheesecakes, so the recipe was pretty much made up as i went along! The separate cheesecake mixes were then set with gelatine at different times (around 1hr for each layer) and the Cheesecake base was made using chocolate digestives, just in case there wasn’t enough chocolate in the mix!

Overall it was really nice and a real chocolate lovers cheesecake, So if you’ve got a sweet tooth, be brave and give it ago, All the hard work is worth it!

Here’s a recipe i found on tinternet;

  • 200g plain chocolate biscuits
  • 80g butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup cold tap water
  • 5 teaspoons gelatine
  • 500g cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 150g white chocolate, melted
  • 150g dark chocolate, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups thickened cream, whipped
  • 100g milk chocolate, grated
  • cocoa powder, to serve
  1. Grease and line a 24cm (base) springform pan. Process biscuits in a food processor to fine crumbs. Transfer to a bowl. Add melted butter. Stir until well combined. Use your fingertips to press into base of prepared pan. Refrigerate for 20 minutes or until firm
  2. Place water into a heatproof microwavesafe bowl. Sprinkle over gelatine. Stand for 1 minute. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH (100%) power for 20 to 40 seconds or until gelatine dissolves. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar and milk until smooth. Stir in gelatine. Divide cream cheese mixture between 2 bowls.
  4. Stir white chocolate into 1 cream cheese mixture. Stir dark chocolate into other.
  5. Fold half the cream through white chocolate mixture and half through dark chocolate mixture.
  6. Pour dark chocolate mixture over biscuit base. Freeze for 10 minutes or until firm to the touch. Carefully spread white chocolate mixture over dark. Cover. Refrigerate overnight.
  7. Release sides of pan. Place cheesecake onto a serving platter. Sprinkle with grated milk chocolate. Dust with cocoa. Cut into slices with a warm knife. Serve.

    Wow. This just sounds sooo delicious! And the photo is beautiful!
    I do have a question though: at no.6, you pour dark chocolate mixture over the biscuits, and then add white, and then you refrigerate it overnight. But in the picture, it has two more layers. Shouldn’t we have to add dark chocolate mixture over the white again and then top with white? I’m sorry if I misunderstood!

      Ahh i had an observant reader who noticed there was 4 layers! 😀 I started with a dark chocolate layer and then went from there, its still triple chocolate though, just with 4 layers 😀

      I recipe i posted here, was a nice recipe i found on the internet, so it was slightly different to the one i had originally used! But if you use gelatin, there shouldn’t be any need to set each layer overnight, as the gelatine will help to set the chocolate cream cheese layer, and should be firm enough in around 1-2hours to set the next layer on top, It’s worth experimenting, and lets face it, even if it goes wrong it will still taste good! Thanks for following by the way!

        You’re very welcome and I’m definitely going to try this cheesecake (and probably more of the delicious recipes you’ve got here!) 🙂 This is one of the “Please-do-try-at-home-experiments” for me!
