Happy Post-Thanksgiving, everybody! Hope you all had a wonderful (or at least tolerable) holiday with your family! And hopefully you’re not drowning in guilt over those two extra slices of pumpkin pie, the slice of coconut cream, slice of marionberry pie, and that cup of pumpkin mousse ALL covered in a mountain of whipped cream. Not that I did anything of the sort…

But since we’re on the topic of desserts, I might as well reveal the Sweet of Honor for the week…

Instead of a long and wordy post, I’ll allow the pictures to do most of the talking since that’s really the reason why you clicked on this post in the first place, isn’t it?

That’s what I thought.

With ALL three of the chocolates (dark, milk, and white) wonderfully represented, this cheesecake is a chocoholic’s dream. I’m a self-professed chocoholic so I of course would know. It starts off with a simple, no-fail cookie crust made of crushed Oreos and melted butter.

Next we have three chocolatey layers of cheesecake deliciousness–dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and finally white chocolate. The first two layers–dark and milk chocolate–are baked to dense, creamy perfection in the oven, while the last and final layer–white chocolate–is made into a light and heavenly cheesecakey mousse.

Three different flavors in one single bite. How’s that for multi-tasking?

To garnish, or as I like to say “prettify” this beauteous chocolate masterpiece, I topped it off with two different chocolates–White chocolate Lindor truffles and Ghirardelli milk chocolate almond minis! I also added a dabble of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips just so all three of the chocolates could be represented.

Because there wasn’t enough chocolate in this cheesecake already…

Ingredients
  

For the Crust

  • 17 Oreos crushed
  • ¼ cup butter melted

For the Filling

  • 20 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 6 ounces milk chocolate

For the Mousse

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 4 ounces white chocolate melted
  • Chocolates for decorating (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Crush the Oreos in a food processor until finely ground. Add the melted butter and mix again until all the crumbs are moistened. Press firmly into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes until set. Cool on rack.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and cornstarch together until smooth, scraping down sides of the bowl several times with a rubber spatula. With mixer on low speed beat in eggs, one at a time, then yogurt (or sour cream) and vanilla just until blended.
  • Divide the batter evenly between two medium bowls. Melt the chocolates separately. Stir semisweet chocolate into one bowl of batter and milk chocolate into the second bowl. Pour semisweet chocolate batter into prepared crust and spread an even layer. Carefully pour milk chocolate batter over semisweet chocolate layer and use an offset spatula to spread out evenly.
  • Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until set and center jiggles slightly when pan is shaken. Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or with a beater), whip the heavy cream with the sugar until stiff peaks form. Transfer whipped cream to another bowl and return bowl to mixer. Beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Add the melted white chocolate and continue beating until smooth. Add the whipped cream and beat until combined. Spread mousse evenly on top of completely cooled cheesecake. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Once set, garnish with optional chocolates.
  • When ready to serve, run a knife or metal spatula around the border of the cheesecake, then carefully remove the sides of the springform pan. Slice and serve!

I made this and it was pretty much perfect, although the top portion was still a wee bit soft after 6 hrs in fridge (I did whip the cream stiff). It was enough of a hit for people to ask for the recipe and I most certainly will make it again! Since the first recipe from this site was a success, I will search out more recipes. Living in the Caribbean we need things that use local ingredients and work out well every time. Thank you!

Thank you so much for your feedback, Charlene! I’m not sure if the mousse didn’t set as firmly because of climate differences. I might suggest making it a day ahead to give the mousse more time to set–hopefully that helps for the next time. I’m super glad to hear that it was a hit though! Thank you for giving my recipe a try 😀
