Chocolate Cheese Cake Recipe - Eggless & No Bake - Guest Post @ Fullscoops

Chocolate Cheese Cake
Today's post is special one as it is a guest post for Beulah of Fullscoops. I am really happy to do a guest post for one of my fellow blogger and friend.  She has a lovely space and is one of the supporter of my space, passes her comments in her best manner and  keeps inspiring. When she asked to do a guest post, i was really surprised and happy and so readily accepted. I asked her suggestion for the type of dish, and when she gave the choice of either baking or dessert, it was easy for me to go into cheesecakes. As she have a wonderful collection of desserts and cheesecake recipes i had to select something different that do justice to her blog.  Her baking recipes are drooling and they have a professional touch that has inspired me.

Chocolate Cheese Cake
When i decided to go in for chocolate cheese cake, i should admit that i was keeping my fingers crossed thinking about how it would turn out.  Though i have already tried out cheese cakes, they were in very small short glasses just enough for 3 of us and this is the first time i making a cheese cake in bit more volume using a spring from pan. Fortunately it turned out well  in-spite of hot and humid temperature here. I kept my recipe simple with my own proportions and adjustments.
Chocolate Cheese Cake
They were creamy and chocolaty and perfect to foil in your mouth in no time. Luckily lighting was perfect here and i enjoyed taking my clicks which went upto 100 shots giving the food writer and food photographer in me great creative delights.  I am sharing some of my photographs here, while you can visit the same recipe at fullscoops too.
Chocolate Cheese cake Recipe - Ingredients:
Preparation time: 8 hrs (including setting) | Cooking time: 30 mins | Recipe cuisine: World | Category: Dessert

For the Base:
Crushed Biscuits  - 1 cup ( digestive or crackers)
Butter - 4 tbsp
Coco powder - 2 tbsp ( omit if using chocolate biscuits)
Powdered sugar - 2 tbsp

For the Cheese cake:
Cream Cheese - 1 cup
Heavy cream   - 1 cup
Sugar  -    1 cup ( powdered)
Semi sweet/ Dark Chocolate  - 1 cup + 1 tbsp butter
Agar Agar - 3 tbsp
Water  - 1/2 cup

For Topping :
Chocolate shavings  - 2-3 tbsp
Cherries  - few to decorate
Whipped/ heavy cream - 1 scoop

To prepare base:
1. Crush the biscuits to a fine powder in a mixer. In a bowl mix the powdered biscuits, coco powder, sugar and melted butter and mix with your finger tips until it resembles bread crumbs and butter is well incorporated.

2. Press this mixture over the base of  a 8' inch spring form pan or any tin with detachable base.

3.Refrigerate the base for about 1 hr. Meanwhile you can prepare the cheese filling.

To prepare Cheesecake:
1. Take the agar agar and soak it in 1/2 cup hot water for 10 mins.

2. In a bowl beat the cream cheese, heavy cream and powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.

3. Melt the chocolate with  butter using a double boiler method. (Alternatively you can also microwave the same on medium for 2 mins.) Allow it to cool slightly and slowly stir in to the cheese mixture and mix well.

4. Place the china grass along with the water and allow it to melt stirring all the while on low flame. (Alternatively you can also microwave along with the water for 2 mins on med high). Once it melts completely pour it over the chocolate cheese mixture and stir well without any lumps.

5. Immediately  pour the chocolate cheese mixture over the prepared biscuit crust.

6. Spread it evenly and cover with a foil or cling wrap.  Allow it to set in the refrigerator for 4 hrs or preferably over night .

Take it out and decorate with chocolate shavings and top it up with cherries. Serve with whipped cream.

Chocolate Cheese Cake

My Notes:
  • Allow the agar agar to melt completely and add while it is still hot itself. You can also strain and add to avoid lumps. 
  • If using Gelatin use 1 tbsp as it will be enough to set the cheese cake. 
  • For Chocolate shavings, just grate some milk chocolate while it is still hard. 
  • If desired you can add another layer to this cheese cake with chocolate ganache or can simply  melt milk chocolate and pour over it.
