  • Total Time: 3 hours 15 minutes
  • Yield: 16 squares 1x
  • Diet: Vegetarian


  • 1 1/2 cups (180 grams) graham cracker crumbs
  • 5 tablespoons (71 grams) unsalted butter, melted
  • 6 tablespoons (72 grams) granulated sugar, divided
  • 6 oz (170 grams) semisweet chocolate, chopped and divided
  • 16 oz (452 grams) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 oz (113 grams) whipped topping, thawed (I used Cool Whip brand)


  1. Line an 8×8 inch (20×20 cm) baking pan with aluminum foil leaving the ends of the foil to extend over the sides for easy removal; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs, butter and 2 tablespoons (24 grams) sugar until the mixture resembles wet sand. Pour mixture into the lined prepared pan and using the back of a measuring cup, firmly press the crumbs onto the bottom of the pan.  Place the pan uncovered in the fridge to chill while preparing the cheesecake.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat chocolate for 30 seconds, stir. Microwave for another 15 seconds and stir well until any remaining pea-size lumps melt; set aside. 
  4. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on low-medium speed, beat cream cheese, remaining sugar and vanilla. Stir in whipped topping.
  5. Divide half of the batter into a medium bowl with a little more than half of the melted chocolate, stir until completely blended.  Be sure to reserve at least 1 oz of melted chocolate for the drizzle.  Pour the chocolate cheesecake batter over the crust and using an angled spatula, evenly spread the batter.  Gently pour the regular cheesecake batter on top and evenly spread.
  6. Using the remaining melted chocolate, drizzle over the cheesecake.  Place in the refrigerator uncovered for 3 hours or until slightly firm when lightly touched.  Once ready, grab the aluminum foil hanging over the sides to lift the cheesecake from the pan and place onto a cutting board. Slice into squares and ENJOY.  Best served chilled.
