Baked Marbled Chocolate Cheesecake

This Baked Marbled Chocolate Cheesecake is decadent, rich and oh so chocolatey. It is quite simple to make but a real showstopper! 

Decadent and delicious dessert

This Baked Marbled Chocolate Cheesecake isn’t messing around! It is rich, decadent and delicious. The base is made from bourbon biscuits which are chocolate biscuits sandwiched with chocolate cream. The cheesecake filling is a mix of chocolate and vanilla marbled together making the perfect combination. 

This cheesecake is delicious as it is, but if you want to really elevate it I would recommend adding the toppings. It makes the Baked Marbled Chocolate Cheesecake look as good as it tastes. The good news is that it is really simple to do! I used piping bags to pip my melted chocolate but you could very easily drizzle it with a spoon. 

Don’t have the equipment? Don’t worry! 

The instructions for this Baked Marbled Chocolate Cheesecake are based on using a food processor. This is the quickest way to make this recipe, but if you don’t have a food processor don’t panic! Before I had a food processor, I would add the biscuits to a sandwich bag and bash them with a rolling pin until you got a fine crumb. You might not get the crumbs as fine as with a food processor but that’t not a problem. 

For the cream cheese filling, you could use a stand mixer or hand mixer instead of a food processor. If you don’t have any of those, you can use a standard whisk. You may get a little tired but make sure you use a large bowl and you will get the same results. 

Baked Marbled Chocolate Cheesecake tips. 

I would recommend baking this cheesecake the day before you are planning on serving it. You then have plenty of time to allow it to cool completely in the oven. You can then cover it in foil and leave it in the fridge overnight. The next day you can then add the chocolate drizzle and crushed biscuits. 

If you prefer your desserts to be a little less sweet, I would recommend tweaking the chocolate. Instead of using all milk chocolate, I would either use all dark chocolate or 100g of dark chocolate and the rest milk chocolate. This will cut the sweetness down slightly.

A long awaited update!

I first made a version of this Baked Marbled Chocolate Cheesecake in 2014. It was one of the very first recipes on my blog and was in much need of an update! Up until now if I wanted to make a cheesecake I’d always make my New York Cheesecake. It was definitely time to have another tasty cheesecake recipe in my repertoire! To say I tweaked the recipe is an understatement! So I’m bringing you a new and improved recipe with some much better photos!
