My friends would be very upset if I didn’t serve this at my annual Cinco de Mayo gathering. This needs to sit in refrigerator at least 8 hours so you may want to make it the day ahead.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 12 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons coffee-flavored liqueur (such as Kahlua®)
  • 3 (1 ounce) squares milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup whipped cream for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons Shaved chocolate, to garnish

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. 2 In a mixing bowl, blend cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing until fully incorporated before adding the next egg. Mix in 3 tablespoons whipping cream and the coffee-flavored liquor. Pour into an 8-inch glass pie pan.
  3. 3 Place chocolate in a small heat-proof bowl and set aside. In a small saucepan, bring 1/2 cup whipping cream just to a boil. Pour it over the chopped chocolate; let chocolate soften for about 3 minutes. Whisk until smooth.
  4. 4 Drizzle chocolate in a spiral pattern over filling. Stir lightly with tip of a paring knife to achieve a marbling effect. Set the pie pan in a larger pan with water that comes halfway up side of pie pan.
  5. 5 Bake in preheated oven until firm in the center, about 55 minutes. Cool completely and refrigerate, covered with plastic wrap, overnight.
  6. 6 Garnish with whipped cream piped or dolloped around edges and shaved chocolate in center.

  1. This was a great recipe - the Coffee Liqueur adds just a subtle flavor which is fine with me. My husband looked up and sheepishly asked "This doesn't count as cheating on you does it?" 5 stars from him. The only change I would make is to totally mix the chocolate into the rest of - Read more ...
  2. wasnt bad when i made it first seem lacking so when i re-made it i added another 1/2 ounce chocolate and a teaspoon of instant coffee and a teaspoon of amaretto as well came out great.
  3. I added two tablespoons of instant coffee and used amaretto instead of kahlua. I also used 2 liquid eggs and one egg white. At the last minute I threw 5 crumbled darkchocolate peppermint patties in the mixture and sprinkled real costa rican ground coffee all over the top. Served it with Hagan Daz coffee icecream - Read more ...

  5. I made this cheesecake for my husband for Valentine's day. I asked him how many stars to give and he said 3. I did add a cookie crust. The cake was okay, but I was disapointed. You could tell there was a coffee taste to it (and I doubled the liquior) but we couldn't taste - Read more ...
  6. This is a great recipe! I thought that 2 tablespoons of Kahlua would not do much for the flavor - it didn't seem like enough. But, I was wrong! It adds just enough flavor so that you can taste it, but it's not overwhelming. My only question with this recipe is that there was nothing - Read more ...
