Chocolate and peppermint together are just as delicious and made for each other as peanut butter and jelly! I have loved this combination for years, especially during the holiday season. There is something so comforting and refreshing about the flavor pairing that lands right at home in this creamy cheesecake.
What I think is so special about this chocolate peppermint cheesecake is its texture. It comes out absolutely perfect with a melt in your mouth texture that every cheesecake should have. With or without a water bath, you have super high chances of it coming out with the a flawless top without any cracks. It looks like it deserves a spot at your local Cheesecake Factory of Junior’s in New York. Either way this is the dessert you should add to your holiday baking menus now.
