This was easy enough to make although I missed the ingredients for the genach because I didn't see the click through for that recipe but it was still delicious and lovely.
Okay - a little confused: It calls for 2 (4 oz) chocolate bars - I wasn't sure if it was a total of 4 oz. or a total of 8 so I erred on the light side and only used 4 oz. Methinks it won't be as chocolate rich as it should be, more like a light chocolate flavor? Well, we will see if it is still good! Wish me luck!!!
Haven't made this yet because I'm confused.....lol. Do the chocolate bars and cream get mixed in with the cream cheese mixture and that gets poured on the crust? If so, where does the icing come from ( ganache ) ? Thank you!
This was absolutely fantastic! For the crust we did a combination of shortbread cookies and chocolate chip cookies because my daughter said she did not like almonds or dark chocolate, lol. But other than we did everything the same. I will definitely make it again.
This was fantastic! I had to go to two supermarkets to find the cookies. Also, I added an airplane-size bottle of kaluha to the ganache. Very rich and serves more than ten for sure. I didn't do the snowflake because it is July, but just the plain ganache was great. Took to a dinner party and it was a hit!
Truly amazing, best cheesecake I've EVER eaten!!!
I was in charge of dessert for New Year's Eve, and this was a HIT! I found the cookies in the Keebler section, right next to the Pecan Sandies. This recipe takes some time, but it was worth it. I passed on the snowflake, and instead placed each piece on a swirl of raspberry sauce. Delicious! One small hint: put only half of the ganache on, refrigerate the rest and swirl that on top. It's easier to work with when cooled. I will definitely make this again! I agree with the other reviewer - this is very rich, so a small piece is all you need. This will serve a large group!
Had no trouble finding the cookies at Publix. My white chocolate snowflake was a total failure, but I attribute that to user error. The cheesecake is delicious, but it was insanely rich. 4 adults ate less than 1/4, and none of us finished our slices. Serves much more than 10.
Excellent cheesecake! I too had a hard time finding the suggested cookies and chose to use shortbreads as well, but added 1/4 cup of cocoa to the crushed cookie mixture.
Time consuming but so worth it!Hard to find the cookies for the crust.I bought chocolate shortbread cookies and added 1/4 tsp of almond extract.
