Chocolate Toffee Cheesecake

Chocolate Toffee Cheesecake

Chocolate Toffee Cheesecake. 
Need I say more?
Sure I will. I just can’t help myself.

This confection is down right heavenly! I made this cheesecake last August for my daughter Annas birthday. It was a huge hit. This heavenly dessert would make a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving Holiday Feast. I for one, am planning on making it…just so I have another chance to eat it. 

It really is down right SCRUMPTIOUS!!!!
If you are a Cheesecake fan, this dessert it for you. It can be made several days in advance, and also freezes very well.

Chocolate Toffee Cheesecake

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 5 hours, 20 minutes

Yield: 12 servings


30 Oreos
1/3 C melted butter
4  8 oz packages cream cheese
1 C sugar
2 t vanilla
1 C sour cream
4 eggs
8  oz  Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips (2/3 of a 12 oz bag)
8  oz whipping cream
dash salt
1/2 t vanilla
1  12 oz bag Heath toffee pieces


1. For the crust, grind your Oreos in a small food processor. Place the crumbs in a small mixing bowl. 
2. Pour the melted butter over the crumbs and mix to combine well.
3. Get out your handy 10 inch spring form pan. Press the crust crumbs over the bottom of the pan and up 1 inch of the sides. It works well to use the a small measuring cup to help form the crust to the pan.
4. Beat the cream cheese in your stand mixer, or with hand held beaters for about 2 minutes, until smooth. 
5. Add the sugar and vanilla and mix until well combined.
6. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well between each egg.
7. Stir the sour cream into the mixture, just until incorporated.
8. Place a 9x13 pan of water on the lower rack of your oven.
9. Pour your cheesecake filling over the chocolate crust.
10. Put the cheesecake into a 350 degree oven and bake for 60-70 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from the oven when a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cheesecake comes out clean.
11. Cool completely on a wire rack and then refrigerate for at least 2 hours. 
12. Put all topping ingredients (but the toffee chips) into a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds, and then stir. Keep heating in 30 second increments until the chocolate melts and can easily be incorporated into the cream. Whisk it together well.
13. Set the chocolate topping on the counter and let it set up for about 15 minutes, or until it begins to thicken a bit. You need to be careful here. If you pour it over the top of your cheesecake when it's too thin you'll have a real mess on your hands. You want it thick enough that once you put it on the top of the cheesecake, you can gently push it over the side and it will set nicely. The longer you let it sit, the thicker it will become. 
14. When the topping is the right consistency pour it on top of the cheesecake. Gently push it over the sides in several areas with a spoon.
15. Cover with toffee chips and return to the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.

    Oh my gosh your pictures are drool-worthy! Good to know it freezes well….I would have to have one piece and freeze the rest to keep from eating it all 🙂

    Must point out a funny “slip”: you called for “health” bars (not Heath). Pretty sure there's nothing healthy about this confection! I'm making it for Thanksgiving anyway.

    I made this recipe and it was delicious. I didn't let the chocolate sauce thicken up enough and it made a bit of a mess but who cares it tasted awesome. Would definitely make this again, thanks for the recipe!

    Thank you for sharing your recipe, I typically make toffee cheesecake, but looked at yours for reference because it was much more beautiful. Adding the sour cream to the batter makes a delightful difference! I also added Carmel to the top. Overall, great recipe and visually appealing! Thanks for sharing!

    WOW! What an awesome looking cheesecake. Anything with toffee I love but add a layer of chocolate ganache below the toffee! I can’t wait to try. Jamie, you are shipping one to me, right?
