Layered Chocolate Cheesecake
I should actually call it a quadruple chocolate cheesecake since there’s also a chocolate graham cracker crust! This chocolate crust is super easy to make! Just pulse the graham crackers into fine crumbs, add the melted butter and then press the mixture into the bottom of a springform pan.
For the triple chocolate cheesecake filling, I start out with a simple cheesecake recipe and then divide the batter in three parts. For each third, I add either melted white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate. You can melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl or over a double boiler. Make sure the chocolate is melted smooth, then stir into the cheesecake batter.
Assembling & Baking
Layering the different cheesecake batters is a breeze! The trick to getting the even and beautiful layers is working slowly and carefully. First, pour in the dark chocolate batter and spread it evenly to the edges. Next, add the milk chocolate batter. Do this very gently with a spoon, dropping the batter in an even layer over the previous one. Repeat the process for the white chocolate layer, too!
And to keep the layers even once the cake is baking, I recommend using a water bath. To use the water bath method, first wrap the bottom of the springform pan with two layers of foil. Seal the bottom very tightly so water does not seep in! Place the cheesecake into a large casserole pan and about 1-inch of water. The water adds additional moisture to the oven, keeping the top level and prevents cracking!
Garnishing the Cheesecake
And once your cake is out of the oven and cooled, it’s time to garnish it! I like to drizzle the top with melted chocolate and add rolled chocolate wafers and chocolate truffles. So much chocolate never looked so good!

I love this tall spring form pan for cakes and cheesecakes.
These handy off-set spatulas are great for spreading cake batter and frosting.
