Every Christmas Eve I try my hand at making a new flavor of cheesecake for the family. This year, at my sister’s request, I made this awesome Mint Chocolate Cheesecake.
Let me first start by saying that this sucker is rich and dense. It’s one that you’ll only be able to eat a very small slice of at a time. And it weighed a ton, lol!
I was worried at first because the batter is so thick before baking, kind of like a whipped mousse. Instead of pouring it in my pan, I had to scoop it and smooth it out evenly like icing.
I only used a small amount of mint extract in the batter so that the mint wouldn’t be too overwhelming. You can easily adjust that to your liking though. I made up for that by using mint Oreos as my crust and topping it off with Andes mint chips on the top.
This mint chocolate cheesecake was a definite hit though. I only came home with a small wedge left by the time Santa came.
