Double Chocolate Cheesecake

Creamy, smooth and decadent. Made with our Pamela's Mini Grahams



    • 1 cup crushed Pamela's Honey Grahams
    • 3 TBSP sugar, plus ½ cup sugar, divided
    • 3 TBSP cacao powder
    • 4 TBSP unsalted butter, melted
    • 2 packages of cream cheese, softened (8 oz each)
    • 2 eggs
    • ½ tsp vanilla extract
    • ½ cup dark chocolate, chopped
    • ¼ cup whipped cream
    • 8 Pamela's Honey Mini Grahams

    Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

    Put the graham crackers into a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add 3 TBSP of sugar, 3 TBSP cacao powder and all of the melted butter, then pulse until dough comes together.

    Press the dough into the bottom of a 6 inch spring form pan, set aside.

    Put the cream cheese in a bowl with the remaining sugar. Using a hand mixer, or the paddle attachment of a stand mixer, beat the mixture until it’s light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

    Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing for 30 seconds between each addition. Mix in the vanilla.

    Pour the mixture on top of the crust

    Make the chocolate ganache topping by placing the chocolate in a glass bowl. Pour the cream into a small pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat.

    Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and allow it to sit for 3 minutes then whisk until smooth.

    Allow the ganache to cool to room temperature, then spread over the top of the cheesecake, in a spiral then using a knife start from the outer edge to the center and continue doing that at every 90 degrees. In between the 90 degrees do the same thing but from the center. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour. The cake is done when the center stays solid when you gently shake the pan.

    Allow the cake to cool for 5 minutes, then run a knife carefully around the edges of the pan to loosen the cake from the sides.

    Unlatch the sides of the spring form pan, then refrigerate the cake for at least 3 hours.


    Decorate with Mini Grahams before serving.
