Here’s What You Need:
8 oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate
1 Package of Cream Cheese (8 oz)
1 Cup Sugar
2 Teaspoons of Vanilla
8 Graham Crackers
1 Stick of Unsalted Butter
Bake 325 degrees (Crust will bake for 10 minutes before you add the filling, then bake completed pie for 45 minutes)
Cool in Fridge for 4 hours (after initial 10–15 minute cool down on your counter)
Here’s How To Put it Together:
Put the graham crackers into a brown paper bag. If you have a food processor you can also use that to crumble your graham crackers. If not this method works just fine. It also helps get out any annoyances at the day.
Because you can use your rolling pin to crush the crackers. I got this rolling pin from my Grandma. It is beautiful. It’s a marble rolling pin. I could have used my wooden pin but I decided to use this one, it made me feel all fancy.
Oh, see looky! Those crackers didn’t stand a chance.
Pour the crushed crackers into a bowl & pour your melted butter on them. Mix as you pour.
Place the buttery graham cracker crust mix into your pie pan. I use my hands to initially get it smoothed into the pan. Then I take a measuring cup to make it even and get the edges up.
Place the crust in the oven for 10 minutes at 325 degrees. While it is baking you will melt your chocolate on the double boiler.
It’s very simple. You don’t need a fancy double boiler pot, but if you have one use it. If not here’s what you do: Take a pot, find a bowl that will fit into the pot. Fill the pot 1/2 way with water. Put the pot onto the stove over low to medium heat. You will bring it the water to a boil. Put the bowl in the pot. The water from the pot will be under the bowl & will heat the bowl. THEN put your chocolate in this bowl. It will allow you to melt your chocolate without burning it.
Stir the chocolate & when it’s melted remove the bowl from the pot. And try not to fall face first into the melted chocolate.
In your mixing bowl put your cream cheese, sugar & vanilla. Cream this together & THEN add your 3 eggs. Cream the eggs in. You don’t need to turn the speed up high, a medium speed is just fine.
Once you’ve creamed those together, pour in your melted chocolate. Mix again. And again try not to fall face first into the bowl. I know it’s hard, but resist.
While you were putting together your filling, the crust should be finished setting in the oven. Take it out and pour in your filling. Place in your oven at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.
After you take it out. Cool it for about 10–15 minutes & place it in the fridge for 4 hours. While this Chocolate Cheesecake is like heaven, the waiting process is more like purgatory. Offer it up. Before you know it will be time for dessert.
And you know what? It’s worth the wait. Also, want to know way to my heart? Yep, you guessed it. Chocolate Heaven Cheesecake. It also makes a wonderful addition to breakfast, not that I’ve had it for breakfast. Well, OK, maybe once.
