You'll love this cheesecake - it's full of rich (but not too sweet) chocolate flavor!



White Truffle Sauce


  1. Heat oven to 275 degrees F. Lightly grease bottom and side of 9-inch springform pan.
  2. In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
  3. Gradually add sugar, beating until fluffy.
  4. Beat in flour. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
  5. Beat in chocolate. Pour into pan.
  6. Bake about 1 hour 15 minutes or until center is set. (Do not insert a knife because the hole could cause cheesecake to crack.)
  7. Cool at room temperature 15 minutes.
  8. Run knife around side of pan to loosen cheesecake. Cover and refrigerate about 3 hours or until chilled.
  9. In 2-quart saucepan, melt white chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring constantly (mixture will be thick and grainy); remove from heat.
  10. Stir in whipping cream until smooth. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until chilled.
  11. Run knife around side of pan to loosen cheesecake; remove side of pan. Let cheesecake stand at room temperature 15 minutes before cutting.

  13. Store in refrigerator.

Did You Know? Bittersweet chocolate differs from semisweet in that it contains more chocolate liquor (the paste that comes from ground cocoa beans) and less sugar.

Success: Use full-fat cream cheese for the best flavor and texture. Reduced-fat varieties will result in a softer, more watery cheesecake.
