Chocolate Cheesecake

Hi guys!

I’m sharing a fantastic dessert from The Boyfriend today. On Wednesday, I tried to make a Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake. I failed. Massively. The Boyfriend felt so bad for me, he made this divine Chocolate Cheesecake! That’s what I call true love. Especially because The Boyfriend has nothing with desserts. He did it just for me ❤

I always say chocolate is the answer for anything and I stick with it. I did feel bad about my failed cheesecake, but when I came home to this delicious surprise, I felt happy again. But most of all because it was such a sweet gesture.

Crust

  • 150 g Oreo
  • 150 g speculoos / Biscoff

  • 4 eggs
  • 25 g cocoa powder

Ganache

  • 400 g dark chocolate

Note: best use a spring form for cheesecakes.
