I made this recipe for my dad's birthday. The cheesecake part was a hit but the sour cream topping ended up being scraped off by most. Next time I'll just stick to a chocolate top layer. Thank you.
A very expensive cake to make, but I tried it for Christmas. The reviews inspired me. However, it turned out very dry. Maybe if the recipe gave directions for handling the cake after the baking was over it would have turned out better. (There were no directions for this step.) In previous cheesecakes, recipes directed you to leave in oven until cool or overnight with the door ajar.I did this twice, because it was baked twice. Thus, the result was so dry it split when cut.
Excellent recipe. I only changed one thing: I used chocolate graham crackers instead of wafer cookies for crust. I melted the chocolate along with 8 tablespoons of butter and blended it in with the crumbled graham crackers, and pressed it into a 10" springform. I followed the recipe exactly for the filling, but ended up with about 1/4 cup too much (even for a 10" pan!), which I discarded. I baked above a water bath. When it had cooled overnight, I made the glaze as the recipe called for as well as added about 1/8 cup of Bailey's Irish Cream and it gave the glaze a nice mild taste of liquor as well as slight coloring. Thank you Bonny for the wonderful recipe! I will definitely make this again.
If you love the combination of mint and chocolate, this cheesecake is AWESOME! It is well worth the time and effort involved. My only suggestion is to use a 10-inch rather than a 9-inch pan, in order to fit the whole mixture. I made this recipe for a party, and had none left over, much to my chagrin!
This is the biggest cheesecake I've ever made! The recipe makes more than even a 10 inch pan can hold- and I even left the sour cream topping off because the pan was full to the brim. I baked it in a water bath that I had set in the oven while it preheated. The finished cake was rich, minty, and full of dark chocolate flavor. I did not put sugar in the crust, and used only 1.5 cups in the filling.
wonderful cheesecake. As expected, it was quite rich and had a great subtle mint flavor. I used white creme de menthe in the sour cream topping for a little additional mint flavor.
Thank you to whomever submitted this recipe! My friend said she wanted a cheesecake for her birthday and her favorite flavor was mint chocolate. This was one of the few recipes I could find and it turned out amazing! Everyone loved it and the cake (which was gi-normous!) was gone within an hour.
Wow, I put this cake in a bath while cooking and left it to cool overnight in the oven (door closed) I just checked it this morning and it looks perfect. No cracks, it is the nicest looking cheesecake i've made. Can't wait to taste it tonight. To make it easier I used oreo cookie crumb base. I used choc. chips and mint chic. candy bar insted of bakers chocolate. On the top I sprinkled skor caramel bits. Also cut the recipie down by 25% and had just the right amount for a 10" pan. Will adjust rate after the taste test.
