On our facebook group page, a few people have been asking for an Easter recipe. My favourite dessert has always been cheesecake, especially chocolate cheesecake so it seemed like a good excuse to share my favourite “no bake” chocolate cheesecake recipe with readers.

To add a little Easter spirit to the dessert I’ve decorated the cheesecake with a selection of Easter Eggs. There are some cute little candy mini eggs for colour and the larger chocolate mini eggs are filled with caramel.

Chocolate Cheesecake Watchpoints

  1. Setting time – The cake will require at least 6 hours to fully set. This is a dish which is best prepared the day before serving.
  2. Dark chocolate is preferable to milk chocolate as it will prevent the cheesecake from being too sweet.
  3. When microwaving the chocolate, heat in 30-second intervals to prevent overcooking and a seized chocolate.
  4. Ensure there are no lumps in the gelatine before adding it to the cheesecake mixture.
  5. The maximum sized springform tin is 9″. If you don’t have a 9″ diameter tin use a smaller size. (not larger).

Below you can see some process shots which will give you a better idea of how the dish should look at each stage of the recipe.

Jamaican Chocolate Cheesecake Variation

Have you ever tried the Cheesecake Shops Jamaican Chocolate Cheesecake? It’s my absolute favourite! If you add 40mls of either Kaluha or Tia Maria to my recipe, this cheesecake tastes remarkably similar.

If you’re short on time and want to serve a cheesecake please try my Salted Caramel Cheesecake. It’s another quick to make, “no-bake” cheesecake, however, this cheesecake is served individually in glasses so it doesn’t require the same setting time as a regular cheesecake.
