Lined Circle


Inspired by Terry's, this orange cheesecake is topped with a thick layer of rich chocolate ganache. Chocolate Orange Cheesecake is so rich and decadent!

This chocolate orange cheesecake is my favorite and is great for holiday meals with its rich chocolate and tart orange.

Bake 45 to 55 minutes, until it is almost done - this can be hard to judge, but you're looking for the cake to hold together, but still have a lot of jiggle to it in the center. You don't want it to be completely firm at this stage.

While the cake is cooling on the counter, prepare the chocolate ganache according to the instructions in the recipe.

Pour the ganache over the top of the cheesecake, still in the springform pan. Put the whole thing in the fridge to chill over night.
