Yes, one more cheesecake recipe! And I am not going to stop here, more will follow!

You know there is a deep love between cheesecakes and me and a long history between us. Today is the time of a Chocolate marble one…To die for!

I made it for my house-warm dinner and my friends loved it! It could also be a good idea for your Valentine’s dinner…why now?

Ingredients:

for the crust

  • 200 g digestive cookies
  • 1/2 cup butter

for the filling

  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 250 g cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 ts vanilla extract

Start by making the crust! Crumble the digestive cookies with a food processor or with a rolling pin in a zip lock bag

Melt the butter

and pour it onto the cookies

stir with a spoon then press crumbs evenly over the bottom of a greased spring form pan. Cover and refrigerate while you make the filling!

Grab some dark chocolate

In your microwave melt the chocolate with 2 tbsp of heavy cream. Set aside and let it cool down

In a bowl of your electric mixer mix together cream cheese, sugar and flour until soft and fluffy

add one egg at a time mixing well after each addition scraping sides of the bowl

add vanilla extract and heavy cream

and mix until well incorporated. Remove about 1/2 cup of the batter

and mix it with the melted chocolate

Poor the remaining batter on top of the crust

then scoop out the chocolate mixture

and with the back of a spoon gently mix the 2 batters together without combining them completely. Bake at 170 C for about 20 min then turn the temperature down to 120 C and back for 40-50 more minute or until center is set.

Remove from the oven and let it cool down. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Enjoy!

Love
