Chocolate Mousse Raspberry Cheesecake



I hadn't made something pretty in a while.

I just tried Cheesecake Factory's Chocolate Raspberry Truffle cheesecake and I'd say this is a pretty good replica! I didn't make the chocolate ganache though. Homemade mousse and raspberry sauce is decadent enough!


I have good recipes for chocolate cheesecake but I wanted to stick to my rule of always making something new. I made Taste of Home's Fabulous Fudge Cheesecake. I knew it looked familiar, and when digging out my cluttered recipe binder, I found it's the same exact recipe as my Hershey's Fudge Truffle Cheesecake. Oh well, not new, but not broken. Still the perfect chocolate cheesecake, as long as you don't over bake.


Though they annoy me, I made the Neelys' chocolate mousse. It was smooth and kept it's shape nice, even when sitting out of the fridge for a couple of hours. The only thing I did different is to strain the egg yolks before adding the chocolate. Next time I would use higher quality chocolate. I used Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips. The flavor needs improvement so use the best chocolate you can find. I would try Lindt milk chocolate or maybe Godiva. I topped the mousse dollops with chocolate covered pomegranates.
