RECIPE: TKG's Chocolate Cheesecake

I've been meaning to make cheesecake a few weeks back but daughter had a sudden fascination with cream cheese and crackers so we always ran out of cream cheese. Luckily, I had this crazy moment in the kitchen. I'm now sharing my easy to make chocolate cheesecake recipe.



So here's my cheesecake inspiration recipe that I found in the pantry- Chips Ahoy, Milka Chocolate Bar, Eden Cheese, and Nestle Cream.


Because I don't have cream cheese in the pantry, I made my own cream cheese using Eden Melt Sarap and Nestle All Purpose Cream. Super easy!



Here's my homemade cream cheese:

Cut the cheese into tiny pieces (the whole box). Then using a non-stick pan (low-heat), add the cream and the cheese. Stir continuously to avoid burning the cheese, don't let it boil also. That simple, you now have your cream cheese!

I then added the broken chocolate bar to the cream cheese, thus turning it into a chocolate-y goodness. Set aside until cool then place in the fridge so that it will harden a bit.

N.B.

You have the option to add sugar to the mixture and reduce cheese amount by half. I used the whole 165g of cheese and its a bit "salty."

For the cheesecake crust:

Crushed the chips ahoy and add some softened butter/margarine and about 2 tbsp of sugar. I used Dari Creme. Form the sticky crumbs evenly into pan or wherever you want to place your cheesecake. I used Lock&Lock. Add the cheesecake mixture on top of the crumbs, cover the container and place it in the freezer for about 2 hours (depends on how cold the temperature is).

Slice a portion and topped it with anything. Daughter requested Oreo so we topped it with Oreo. Bon appetite from The Kitchen Goddess!

  1. Substuting Eden Melt Sarap and Nestle All Purpose Cream for cream cheese is a good call.
