For this recipe, I wanted to get away from the traditional graham cracker crust and went with a chocolate cake base instead. I used my ‘Basic Chocolate Cake Recipe’, which I use for so many of my cake creations. It’s easy to prepare, rich and chocolatey! The cake on its own is delicious, but adding the cheesecake batter on top transforms the cake into the best brownie ever! After baking, the base is rich and fudgy – perfect for cheesecake bars!

The Secret To An Amazing Cheesecake!
Want to know how to make the fluffiest and most amazing cheesecake ever? Just add ricotta cheese! The combination of cream cheese and ricotta cheese makes the cheesecake less dense and more fluffy, resulting in an unforgettable texture. You can use the ricotta cheese trick for almost any cheesecake recipe; just substitute 8 ounces cream cheese with whole milk ricotta.
In addition to the ricotta cheese, I also added melted white chocolate. The chocolate helps make the cheesecake even more rich and velvety. The white chocolate cheesecake layer is then dotted with fresh raspberries and raspberry preserves.
