If you wish to make to make a plain cheesecake without using any graham crackers for the crust see my Gluten Free Cheesecake Recipe with optional chocolate topping. Today’s recipe is a Chocolate Cheesecake, layered with plain cheesecake and chocolate mint cheesecake, and then swirled with both on top. It looks gorgeous, yet is so easy to create this effect. I added the mint for a Christmas touch, but you can skip the mint all together, as it contains plenty of vanilla extract.
You may lessen the chocolate in the chocolate layer if you desire. As is, this is a extremely rich decadent dessert. A couple our guests added chocolate fudge to the top. I tasted it, but it was way too rich for even this chocolate lover! I hope you get a chance to enjoy this sometime. We all did! People raved about it and even asked for the recipe.
This recipe is not corn-free due to the xanthan gum in the cookies.
