Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake


Nothing goes better together than raspberry and dark chocolate. I've always wanted to make a cheesecake from scratch with a springform pan. For my husband's and I 11th year anniversary, we were just staying in and I thought I should make a special dessert. So this was it. It's a New York style cheesecake with raspberry and semi sweet chocolate spooned on top, when baked sporaticaly sunk into the top. After the cheesecake cooled I made a chocolate ganache to spread over the top. Then served with a dollop of whipped cream. This is a very rich dessert, but very decadent also. It was the perfect anniversary surprise.
