Choc Chip Cookie Cheesecake

I wanted to create a dessert that echoed the beloved cookies and cream flavour combination and with this month’s Sweet Adventure’s Blog Hop being cheese-themed, I knew a cookies ‘n’ cream cheesecake was the answer.

I described this cake to someone as “a choc chip cookie and a cheesecake had a baby and the result was amazing” which basically sums up this new recipe!

Choc Chip Cookie base

  • 140 g butter room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • cups plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 200 g chocolate chips


  • 500 g cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup - 1 cup icing sugar to taste
  • 200 ml double cream

Chocolate Ganache

  • 100 g dark chocolate chip
  • 100 ml double cream


Choc Chip Cookie base

  • Preheat oven to 170°C. Cream the butter and sugars for at least 5 minutes until the mixture becomes light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat well.
  • Add choc chips, flour, baking soda and baking powder. Beat on low speed until just combined (don’t overwork the mixture or it can become tough).
  • Press the majority of the dough into the middle of a 23cm/9" round greased springform tin. I baked the leftover dough into 6 small cookies, for decorating or for eating ;)
  • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
  • Allow to cool completely.


  • Place the cream cheese and icing sugar in a large mixing bowl and beat until smooth.
  • Add in the double cream and keep beating until smooth and creamy.
  • Pour onto the cooled biscuit base and put in the fridge to set for at least 3 hours, but preferably overnight.

Chocolate Ganache

  • Bring the cream to a simmer either over the stove top or in the microwave.
  • Add the choc chips to the cream and stir until melted and glossy.
  • Allow the ganache to cool slightly before pouring over the top of the cake.
  • Enjoy!

The combination of the thick choc chip cookie crust, creamy cheesecake filling and rich chocolate ganache makes it a decadent and popular dessert with everyone I’ve served it to!
