Holiday season is finally here. And that means happy times are here again. I mean cake season is here again.

Chocolates and cheesecakes are best for this festive season, or I should rather say, they are the BEST in any season. By any season, I mean:

  • Any season when you crave something sweet.

  • Any season when you want something sinfully delish.

  • Any season when you throw dinner parties.

  • Any season when you want to sit by the fire and watch a Christmas movie along with some delicate chocolate dessert.

  • Any season when you just want to sit on a couch and have something chocolicious.

This chocolate cheesecake fits in all of the above mentioned seasons.

So for this chocolate cheesecake, I can say one thing — Season no bar, only chocolate is the limit! 🙂

Chocolate Cheesecake | mygingergarlickitchen.com/ @anupama_dreamsTime to keep the customs alive:

During Christmas times, my mom always baked or bought a chocolate cake instead of a spiced Christmas cake. It was because I just loved chocolate cake. So till this time, I try to keep that ‘mini me’ alive and bake some chocolate cake every year around Christmas.

Chocolate Cakes are always sinful: But that’s all we want in a chocolate cake. Right? Chocolate cake should/cannot be guilt-free. Feel free to dive into this ocean of chocolate decadence. I would never tell you to finish a whole chocolate cheesecake in a day. NEVER. Share it with family and friends and enjoy this delicacy with everyone. That sounds just the right way to indulge.

Chocolate Cheesecake | mygingergarlickitchen.com/ @anupama_dreamsChocolate everywhere:

This grandeur chocolate cheesecake is astonishingly mouth-watering, perfectly sweet and wonderfully rich. I topped it with real dark chocolate ganache which balances the flavors. Again I have added some instant coffee in this cheesecake because as always I would say: “Coffee brightens the chocolate flavor.”

Chocolate Cheesecake | mygingergarlickitchen.com/ @anupama_dreamsMethinks that the only thing which could make even chocolate dishes better is a little addition of coffee. Chocolate and coffee are a great marriage. They never fail to impress.

Chocolate Cheesecake | mygingergarlickitchen.com/ @anupama_dreamsLet your festive feelings ride on you:

I was feeling celebratory, so I adorned my cheesecake with some chocolate candies and some white chocolate. Chocolate in and chocolate out = that’s my thing. However, feel free to use any decorations you like. You can even eat it without any ganache or any other decoration. A simple icing sugar dusting would work too.

Chocolate Cheesecake | mygingergarlickitchen.com/ @anupama_dreamsWant to feel happy? Just take a slice:

I can instinctively tell you that any chocolate lover would love this chocolate cheesecake. Bake and slice. Eat, share and REPEAT. Yumminess overloaded. So the thing is that, we need a chocolate cake because this satisfies our sweet cravings and makes us happy. And we all love a sinful dessert once in awhile! 🙂

Chocolate Cheesecake | mygingergarlickitchen.com/ @anupama_dreamsIt’s the time of the celebration of new beginnings, so that’s why we should let ourselves go all out on a cheesecake treat. Let’s make the chocolatiest cake of them all. To sum it all, it’s really chocolatey and really palatable.
