The Hungry Elephant

We’re in the Christmas mood over at the Hungry Elephant and one of the big desserts around the holiday season is CHEESECAKE. So we made this delicious dark chocolate cheesecake! Even better, it’s basically a foolproof cheesecake recipe! It was pretttty yummy, I can’t lie.. and I’m not even a huge fan of the dessert!

In all honesty – this recipe was SUPPOSE to be truffles.. I found a great recipe online but definitely did NOT read the reviews! It did not turn out like truffles at all! Too smooth, you couldn’t form the balls at all! So instead, I added a little more icing sugar and some cocoa to make it a chocolate cheesecake.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 brick cream cheese
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 3/4 icing sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • graham crackers (to top)
  • 1 graham cracker pie crust

This cocoa powder cheesecake is super simple to make. The first thing you’ll want to do is, with a mixer, beat the cream cheese, vanilla and butter in a large bowl. Slowly add in the icing sugar as you mix. After that, add in the cocoa! Mix again.

Pour that baby into your graham cracker crust, cover with seran wrap and refrigerate until serving time! Top with graham crackers if you like or whipped cream!
