The Chocolate Layers
This decadent and impressive mousse cake and cheesecake creation is definitely for chocoholics! The base is a simple, chocolate graham cracker crust. You can also use chocolate Oreo cookies if you want even more creaminess. Then comes the baked dark chocolate cheesecake layer. This is the only layer that gets baked in this recipe. Once it’s baked, let it cool completely, then make the other two, no-bake cheesecake layers. For this chocolate cheesecake, and all my cheesecake recipes, I recommend using a water bath. The added moisture in the oven will keep the top of the cheesecake nice and level and prevent cracks. Just tightly wrap the bottom of your pan with a few sheets of foil. If all the water evaporates while the cake is still baking, simply add a bit more water.
The second and third layers in this triple chocolate cake are no-bake! The second layer is made with milk chocolate and the third and last layer is the white chocolate cheesecake. I can’t think of a better way to enjoy all three types of chocolates in one bite!
How To Make The Fluffiest Cheesecake!
Want to know the secret to a super light and fluffy chocolate cheesecake? Whole milk ricotta cheese! When I was writing my cookbook, The European Cake Cookbook, I learned that the original cheesecake was made with ricotta. Now, I add ricotta to all my cheesecake recipes and it makes the cake so fluffy!
That’s what allows this recipe to be so rich and chocolatey, yet light and enjoyable at the same time! Ever had one bite of a chocolate cheesecake and were overwhelmed? Not with this cake! You’ll be able to enjoy all three flavors of this triple chocolate cake with no problem!
All About The Garnishes
For the garnish, I used a simple chocolate ganache topping and my home-made chocolate garnishes. I have dedicated videos for both of these! I also added simple whipped cream dollops; the recipe is below!
