Homemade Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

Updated on September 14, 2012
5 stars from 2 ratings of Chocolate Cheesecake

I really like cheesecakes. I always have trouble finding the prefect store bought one, so I worked on making my own recipe for a chocolate one. This one has a chocolate graham cracker crust and a chocolate topping. This is great by itself or served with fresh raspberries, a dollop of whipped cream, or dusted with grated chocolate; or all three. Enjoy!

Prep time: 40 minutes

Bake time: 45 minutes

Cool time: 45 minutes (15 minutes; Then 30 minutes)

Chill time: 4 hours



1 sticks (1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons) of unsalted butter; melted

40 chocolate graham cracker squares (approximately 2 cups); crushed

1 tablespoon white sugar


24 ounces cream cheese (softened at room temperature)

4 ounces (8 tablespoons) ground chocolate

1 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 whole eggs

1 egg yolk

ΒΌ cup milk


1 ounce (2 tablespoons) brown sugar

1 cup sour cream

1 cup chocolate chips



1. In a large bowl mix crushed graham crackers, melted butter and sugar until incorporated.

2. Press mixture into the bottom a 9-inch springform pan.


1. In a large mixing bowl using an egg beater or standing mixer beat cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla until combined.

2. Add chocolate. Mix until combined.

3. Add whole eggs and the egg yolk all at once. Beat at low speed until combined.

4. Stir in milk.

Topping: (make this after cheesecake is baked, while it is cooling)

1. In a small sauce pan over low heat melt together sour cream, brown sugar, and chocolate chips.

2. Constantly whisk together until melted smooth. (It will take some time before the chocolate starts to melt so be patient.)

Baking Directions:

1. Pour cream cheese mixture into crust-lined pan.

2. Place on a cookie sheet.

3. Bake in 375 degree f for 35 to 45 minutes or until center appears nearly set when shaken a little.

4. Cool in pan on wire rack for 15 minutes.

5. Make topping while cake cools.

6. Spread topping over the top of the cake and make sure it evenly covers the entire cake. Cool for 30 minutes.

7. Allow to cool completely before chilling in refrigerator for at least 4 hours before serving.

      It does look like you have come up with the perfect chocolate cheesecake. I love the idea of the chocolate graham cracker crust and the good quality chocolate topping. In my opinion, it doesn´t need anything else. Above all, I am happy to see you have actually made it yourself, which is not the case of many other chocolate cake recipes I´ve seen published in HP, congratulations.

      Looks so yummy! And a very elegant dessert especially with the raspberries added. I've never made a homemade cheesecake and this might have to be my first!
