This recipe isn’t just a treat for your taste buds—it’s a feast for the eyes, too! Perfect for special occasions or whenever you want to indulge, this cheesecake combines the classic flavors of chocolate, strawberries, and creamy cheesecake in a way that’s sure to impress.

Discovering the Perfect Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cheesecake Recipe

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of making this fabulous dessert, let’s explore what makes the chocolate and strawberry combo so irresistible, and share some tips to ensure your cheesecake turns out perfectly every time.

What Goes Well With Chocolate and Strawberry Cheesecake?

Chocolate-covered strawberry cheesecake pairs wonderfully with several flavors and beverages. A glass of bubbly champagne or a sweet Riesling complements the richness of the chocolate and the tangy sweetness of the strawberries.

For coffee lovers, a robust espresso can balance the sweetness while enhancing the chocolate’s deep flavors. If you’re serving this at a dinner party, consider a dessert wine like a Port or a late-harvest Riesling.

Tips for Making Cheesecake

Achieving the perfect cheesecake texture can be a bit of an art form, but with a few tips, you can make a show-stopping dessert every time. First, ensure all your ingredients, especially the cream cheese, are at room temperature before mixing to avoid lumps. Be gentle with your mixing; overbeating can incorporate too much air, leading to an undesired rise and fall of your cheesecake.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cheesecake Recipe

Ready to create a dessert that’s as stunning as it is delicious? Here’s how to bring this chocolate covered strawberry cheesecake to life in your kitchen.

Cheesecake Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups crushed Oreos
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh strawberries
  • 4 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • A few drops of red food coloring

Ganache Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Garnish:

  • Whole strawberries, dipped in chocolate

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Grease a 9-inch springform pan.
  2. Mix the crushed Oreos with melted butter and press into the bottom and slightly up the sides of the pan.
  3. Puree the strawberries until smooth.
  4. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until creamy. Mix in flour and sugar until smooth, then add eggs and the yolk one at a time, mixing lightly. Blend in lemon zest, strawberry puree, vanilla, and red food coloring.
  5. Pour the mixture over the crust and place the pan on a baking sheet.
  6. Bake for about 75 minutes, or until set. Turn off the oven, leave the door closed, and let the cheesecake cool inside for 15 minutes.
  7. Chill the cheesecake in the refrigerator for 8 to 24 hours.
  8. For the ganache, combine chocolate chips and heavy cream, microwave until smooth, then stir in espresso powder and vanilla.
  9. Once the cheesecake is cool, remove from the pan, pour ganache over the top, and decorate with chocolate-dipped strawberries.
  10. Chill until the ganache sets, then serve.
