Get your chocolate fix with this Triple Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake that will wow the crowd for any special occasion!

Triple Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake

This recipe comes from my sweet friend Jocelyn’s cookbook: Cheesecake Love! And it’s AMAZING! Jocelyn blogs over at Inside BruCrew Life where she shares amazingly creative and oh so delicious sweet treat recipes that you and your loved ones are sure to enjoy!

I used to say cheesecake is not my favorite dessert, but thanks to Jocelyn’s Cheesecake Love cookbook, I’m a changed woman. Seriously! Jocelyn is the cheesecake queen and thanks to her inventive and approachable recipes, I’ve successfully made several of her cheesecake recipes and have fallen in love.

Triple Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake

As I was drooling over all of the recipes the first time I browsed through this cookbook, I immediately started questioning why in the world I haven’t fallen in love with cheesecake up to this point in my life. And now I know the answer to that question is that I haven’t had a good homemade cheesecake. All of my cheesecake experiences have come at restaurants where I was just never that impressed or satisfied.

Homemade cheesecake is the way to go! And it’s much easier to make than you’d think. Don’t let the ingredient list or steps intimidate you. Thorough instructions lead to success and Jocelyn’s Cheesecake Love cookbook sets you up for success! I speak from experience…

Ingredients

Scale

For the Crust:

  • 20 Oreo cookies
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted

For the Cheesecake:

  • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 11/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 ounces bittersweet baking chocolate, melted
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs

For the Mousse:

  • 1 (8-ounce) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 ounces white baking chocolate, melted
  • 1 (8-ounce) container Cool Whip, thawed

For the Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons heave cream
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Place a large rimmed baking sheet on the very bottom rack of the oven and fill it halfway with water. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper.
  2. For the Crust: Place the cookies, cream filling included, in a food processor. Pulse until the cookies are crushed into crumbs.
  3. Mix together the cookie crumbs and butter. Press the crumbs evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Set aside.
  4. For the Cheesecake: Beat the cream cheese until creamy. Add the sugar, sour cream, and vanilla and beat until very smooth.
  5. Spoon in the melted chocolate and beat until incorporated completely. Add the flour and beat again.
  6. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Make sure the eggs are fully incorporated, but do not overbeat the batter.
  7. Pour the cheesecake batter onto the prepared crust. Place the pan on the oven rack right above the pan of water. Bake the cheesecake for 45 minutes.
  8. Remove the pan from the oven and place it on a wire rack. Let the cheesecake cool for 5 minutes, then run a sharp knife around the edges of the cheesecake to loosen it from the springform pan.
  9. Let the cheesecake cool for 1 hour, then refrigerate it for 4 to 6 hours, or until completely chilled.
  10. Detach the springform pan ring and gently remove the cheesecake from the pan. Slide the cheesecake onto a plate.
  11. For the Mousse: Beat the cream cheese and vanilla until creamy. Spoon in the melted white chocolate and beat the mixture until smooth.
  12. Fold in the Cool Whip with a rubber spatula until everything is completely mixed together. Pipe the mousse on top of the chilled cheesecake with a piping bag and icing tip 1M. Refrigerate the cheesecake for one hour to let it set up.
  13. For the Topping: Place the cream and chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 15 to 20 seconds. Stir the chocolate until melted and creamy. Drizzle the chocolate over the top of the cheesecake.

  1. Woo hoo! This looks amazing! I was exited to see that you made this one because it’s definitely one of my favorites too! Thank you so much for sharing about the book! You rock!

    1. It is incredible, Jocelyn! Such a great recipe that everyone has loved each time I’ve made it. Thank you for sharing your passion and love for cheesecake with us in this amazing cookbook and on your blog! xoxo

    1. Hi Brian! No, it’s not necessary to bake the crust before putting the batter in with this recipe. The crust bakes up perfectly as the cheesecake bakes. Enjoy!

  2. Can I use dark chocolate instead of white chocolate. Would love to make it for my husband’s birthday who loves chocolate cheesecake.

    Thanks
    Anu

    1. Hi Anu! Yes, you can definitely substitute the white chocolate chips for dark chocolate chips in the mouse. That sounds fabulous! Hope he loves it and has a happy birthday!

  3. I made this and it came out really good but my cheesecake was a little mid- shapen on the edges and I was wondering if you could be more specific about the “line the pan with parchment” piece. I lined the whole pan but of course the parchment paper got a little bunchy in parts and caused the cake itself to get odd in those spots. So yummy, but not quite as pretty ha. Was I only supposed to do it on the bottom? Thanks!

    1. Hi Michelle! Happy to hear it tasted great! You just needed to line the bottom of the springform pan which is why the edges were not smooth. I updated the instructions to clarify.

  4. Hi Megan,
    Thanks for this recipes. Can I make my own whipping cream instead of using Cool Whip for the mousse?

    1. Hi Stella! Yes, but you’ll want to be sure to sweeten it since cool whip is already sweetened. Enjoy!

  5. Made this for my daughters 3rd birthday! It was a big hit, we all loved it so much! Thank you for sharing xoxo.

    1. Hi Anita! Yes, the cheesecake base will freeze great for up to 1 month. Just let cool completely, wrap in plastic wrap and then in foil before placing in the freezer. Enjoy!
