I’ve got another dessert and it’s going to take up a lot of room on this blog. So clear the table, the name alone is enough to qualify as two or three desserts. Black Bottom Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake. This crave-worthy cheesecake has a decadent base of chocolate ganache and a kiss of black cherry swirled into the creamy sweet cheese filling.
Remember when I rarely did desserts? Well Pinterest has changed all that, and you’re the one who will have to bear the brunt of the pain. Let me warn you though, you’re going to have to pull up a chair and two forks (this is one dense cake). Get something to drink while you’re up, maybe even something to read too. There’s no rushing through a slice of this cheesecake (no matter how small). It’s more like a marathon. Slow and steady. Know your limitations. Chew diligently. You can do this.
Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake
Because this Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake is ridiculous– ridiculous bordering on obscene. Let me put it this way. Chocolate cookie crust. Black chocolate ganache bottom. Sweet cream cheese. Black cherry swirl. All in one obscene dessert.
It’s so obscene that even the tiniest of wedges will take a couple of attempts to get through entirely. I recommend getting up and out of your chair at the halfway point and doing some stretching exercises. Belly stretching I’m afraid. Once you start you won’t be able to stop at halfway. The break will fool you into thinking that “one more bite is no big deal”. So psych yourself up for this Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake. The one with a black bottom of ganache. I have to keep repeating the name, Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake– because I want to to really understand what you’re in for once you decide to sit down.
Are you still reading? Cuz I’m still eating my slice of Black Bottom (did I mention that?) Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake. GREG
Looks delish and thinking of making, but wondering, does this recipe really result in that nice lush layer of choc? Seems like 2/3c cream with 8oz choc wouldnt be enough for a 9″ pan. ?
