  • Serves: 8
  • Contains:

Cheesecake is a delicious indulgance all year round, but is most connected with for the holiday of Shavuot, when many Jewish folks celebrate by preparing dairy meals. Here is a very simple and basic no-bake chocolate cheesecake that anyone can prepare.

Ingredients (10)

Crust

Cheese cream filling

Ganache

Garnish

Start Cooking

Prepare the Crust

  1. In a food processor with a steel blade, grind the biscuits into a thin powder.

  2. Add melted butter and process into a crumbly mixture.

  3. Press the crumbs into the base and on the sides of a greased 24-centimeter (nine- and- a- half-inch) springform pan to form a crust.

  4. Cool the crust in the freezer for about 10 minutes.

Prepare the Cheese Cream Filling

  1. In a mixer bowl, whip together cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, instant pudding and whipping cream until you get a smooth and firm cream.

  2. Pour the cream into the base and level the top. Cool in the refrigerator for at least an hour to set.

Variation:

For a richer version, you can use mascarpone cheese instead of regular cream cheese.

For the Ganache Topping

  1. Break the chocolate into squares and put in a bowl.

  2. Add whipping cream and melt together in a microwave or on a Bain-Marie until everything is melted and the mixture is smooth.

  3. Pour the coating over the cheese layer and straighten the top.

  4. Cool for half an hour in the refrigerator until the coating sets.

  5. Decorate with chocolate.

    Very yummy and rich cheesecake

    I made this recipe for shavuos and loved it! It was so chocolaty and cheesy and creamy, just perfect. The only thing is that the cheese part came out much lower than the picture looks. I would maybe double the cheese center so that there's some hight. As well as the topping I made from milchig chocolate, it was great.

    Freezer friendly?

    Can't wait to try this! Can I freeze this for Shavuos?

    My colleagues swear by freezing cheesecake. I am on the fence about it. It will last a bit in the refrigerator for sure.

    I made this yesterday and it was delish! I actually did the filling a bit different-I whipped up the whip with the sugar, then added the instant pudding and vanilla extract and then the cream cheese. Though next time I'd rather make it in individual portions as it was too runny even straight from the freezer. Oh, and I made the ganache with dairy chocolate! Yum!!
