I can’t believe that Christmas is almost here! This year has gone so fast. I have one more delicious dessert for you before Christmas. This one is a must try! I love anything peppermint around this time of year, especially peppermint paired with chocolate. I decided to make one of my favorite desserts, cheesecake, and combine it with delicious peppermint and chocolate flavor.
I decided to make a Triple Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake. This really is the perfect holiday dessert, combining the delicious flavors of chocolate and peppermint. Not only is there chocolate in this cheesecake, there are three types of chocolate, chocolate in the crust, chocolate in the cheesecake, and chocolate in the topping.
The cheesecake starts out with an Oreo crust and then on top of the crust is a chocolate cheesecake with candy cane pieces inside the cheesecake. On the top is a chocolate ganache, with candy cane pieces sprinkled on top. This cheesecake is very chocolatey with a peppermint flavor.
I really loved the cheesecake, it was so decadent. I also loved that the chocolate dominated and that while you can definitely taste the peppermint it was not overwhelming. This cheesecake would be perfect for a holiday dessert or for anytime. This cheesecake is a must try, my family loved it!
