Making a Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

Happy Wednesday!

A little while ago, we wanted to do something special for a friend who was celebrating a birthday. We did a little research and found that she liked chocolate cheesecake, I already had a recipe from a coworker for Chocolate Chip Cheesecake, so decided to make that for her! And I thought I’d share the process with you!

I found the same recipe I used on Cooks.com

Here are the ingredients:

20 Oreos crushed, 1/4 cup melted butter, 3 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese at room temperature (very important!), 1 (14 oz) can sweet condensed milk, 3 eggs, 2 tsp vanilla, 1 cup mini chocolate chips, 1 tsp flour

The cheesecake crust made from mixing the crushed oreos together with the butter is dense and sweet. It’s also very easy to pat down in a spring form pan. (To ensure that the crust is even, I used the bottom of a measuring cup.)

Next simply beat the cream cheese until it’s fluffy:

Next add the sweetened condensed milk and beat together until smooth:

Then add and beat together vanilla and the eggs (one at a time):

In a small bowl mix together half a cup of mini chocolate chips and the flour.

Mix these coated chocolate chips into the batter:

Put the batter in the pan and sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips:

Bake at 300 degrees for about an hour (the cake will spring back when you touch it).

I let the cheesecake cool at room temperature overnight and then put it in the fridge. I took the cake out of the fridge about 5 hours before we wanted to enjoy it.

Ta da! Chocolate Chip cheesecake.

What goodies have you recently made?

    Your cheesecake looks scrumptious! And it turned out beautifully. I tried baking some interesting brownies a couple of weeks ago. There was a recipe in the newspaper for Black Bean Brownies which sounded so unusual I just had to try them! The beans were a replacement for the flour in the recipe. When I tasted the raw batter, I had no sense of tasting beans! And the final product, as well, was simply chocolatey! However, they were very crumbly, not in a dry way — the brownie just didn’t hold together and the texture was odd. I actually threw the recipe away….worth trying just for curiosity’s sake!! Jim ate them, of course!!

      Debbie,
      Sounds really interesting. I tried a weight watcher recipe once that used a box of brownie mix and one can of black beans pureed and that was it — two ingredients. THey were more fudgy, but the taste just wasn’t there — I guess we’ll both have to keep looking for a healthier alternative!
