Crust:

  • 2 5.6oz Schar Gluten Free Honey Grahams, crumbed
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Kerrygold Salted Butter, softened

Cheesecake:

Salazon Bars

Steps

For the Crust:

  3. Press into the bottom of a greased 11" springform pan and set aside until needed.

    For the Cheesecake:

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. Using a double boiler, melt the chocolate bars until they are smooth and creamy. Remove from heat and set aside to cool to room temperature.
    3. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, mix the cream cheese together, one block at a time until smooth, soft, and creamy.
    4. Beat in sugar and orange extract.
    5. Next, whip in cocoa, mixing well to be sure all the ingredients are completely incorporated.
    6. Next, whip in the eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition.
    7. After the eggs are mixed in, gently beat in the melted chocolate and orange zest.
    8. Pour the mixture into the prepared spring form pan.
    9. Place the slices of blood orange around the top of the cheesecake (it's perfectly fine if they sink into the batter).
    10. Set the pan on a round cookie sheet and place into the oven to bake for one hour and 15 minutes at 350°F.
    11. Once the cheesecake has finished baking, allow it to rest in the oven for another hour with the oven door shut.
    12. Remove from oven and place on a hot pad. Transfer to the refrigerator to finish cooling.
    13. Once your cheesecake has cooled and set up. pop it out of the springform pan, then slice and serve with a garnish of orange zest and a drizzle of chocolate!
