If you need a dessert to WOW your family and friends, then this Chocolate Cheesecake with Blueberry Topping is your answer. It is decadent and delicious and the blueberry topping is a must. Although, raspberries or strawberries would make great substitutes.
I found this recipe in a magazine ad for Kraft Philadelphia cream cheese. This cheesecake tastes like something you'd eat in a fine restaurant, but you can easily whip it up in your own kitchen.
Chocolate Cheesecake with Blueberry ToppingAdapted from Kraft
- 18 Oreo cookies
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 4 (8oz) blocks of cream cheese - I used Kraft Philly brand
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate, melted. Place in microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second increments. Stir in between until it is completely melted. Allow to cool slightly.
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 teaspoon sugar
Instructions1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Place the Oreos in a food processor and crush the cookies. Drizzle the melted butter into the food processor while it is running. Press the crushed cookies on the bottom of a 9 inch spring form pan to form a crust. Bake for 10 minutes.
3. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, flour, and vanilla until well blended. Stir in the melted chocolate.
4. Add the eggs, one at a time. Mix well between each egg.
5. When the batter is well blended, pour onto the baked cookie crust. Bake for 55 - 60 minutes or until the center is set.
6. Run a knife around the rim of pan right after removing from the oven, but don’t remove the rim until cake is completely cooled. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
My cheesecakes always crack as they cool. I googled for a solution and one site suggested that running a knife around the rim would prevent the cracking. It didn't. My cheesecake still cracked, but the taste was still decadent and delicious!
To make blueberry topping: Place the frozen blueberries in a bowl and stir in 1 teaspoon of sugar. Allow to thaw in the refrigerator. The sugar will thicken the blueberries as they thaw. Serve on top of cheesecake.
