This is by far my favorite cheesecake recipe EVER!  Unfortunately I haven’t had much success with making it myself, but Grant is the guru of this recipe.  Every single time it turns out perfectly – creamy, chocolate-y goodness.   It took me a while to get the gluten and dairy-free version down, but it is amazing when it works!

Couple of points to note:

  • Use any type of cookie (ginger nut, arrowroot, etc) and process similar to the Oreos.
  • Add blueberries or other types of fruit as a fill-in.
  • Add cocoa powder and milk cooking chocolate instead of white chocolate.

If you’re interested in a simpler alternative using instant pudding mixes, check out this recipe here.

Can’t go wrong with anything that combines cream cheese, chocolate and sugar … unless you want to add peanut butter as well – might try that next time!
