Ghirardelli Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Hearts
I just made this cheesecake. I made the follow changes: I used 8oz. cream cheese. Instead of making the raspberry puree, I used seedless raspberry jam. Also, when mizing the chocolate and whipping cream- you will still need to keep the pot over low heat, as these chips are large, and need help melting down. Also, bake time for me was 35 minutes in the 13x9 pan.
I just tried to cut the cheesecake using my heart cookie cutter (after about 1.5 hrs of cool time) and it did not work out so well. I will let this cheesecake cool in the fridge overnight, and cut/decorate tomorrow. Hope this helps!!
PS: This cheesecake tastes very good! Very rich! Be sure to serve in small portions. :)
***Addition: I had a HARD time with the two cookie cutters I had. So I was able to get two hearts to come out, and opted to just serve with small squares (I posted under this recipe a picture) After cutting, I added a smear of the seedless red raspberry jam- and then drizzled white and Ghiradelli chocolate on top. THEY ARE DELICIOUS!
